After a very brief introduction, THE BEST RECIPES FROM THE FARMER’S WIFE COOKBOOK, gets right into the recipes. And though I normally like a longer intro, there is no way I can complain about jumping right into the delicious food that I found.
Eleven chapters from Salads to Beverages and everything in between, left me so hungry! Besides the ones listed in the book blurb, here are some of the amazing recipes you’ll find!
Country Kitchen Salad, Vegetable Sandwich Filling, Egg Soup, Hasty-Tasty Stew, Corn Scramble, Steamed Brown Bread, Cheese Straws, Potato Muffins, Hamburger Casserole, Pork Chop Casserole, Chicken Shortcake, Southern Fried Chicken, Baked Spinach with Cheese, Scalloped Tomatoes, Potato Puff, Baked Potato Kugel, Old-Fashioned Applesauce, Caramel Bread Pudding, Jam Marguerite, Honey Drop Hermits, Frosted Creams, Kiss Cake, Banana Fritters, Angel Pie, Herby Pastry and so very many more.
Let me start with my pet-peeve in cookbooks, lack of photos. The photos that are included are beautiful and full color, and make the food look delicious. As you can see from above, there are some interesting foods. Some I’ve never heard of and I’m sure some of you haven’t either. Photos of those would have been a great help.
There are a lot of old time dishes in this cookbook, as one would expect from the title. The recipes themselves are clear and easy to follow. And they’re short and simple. I love that. Longwinded, many multi-stepped recipes can be so intimidating.
I was given a chance to review this cookbook and happily did so. That being said, I so enjoyed the simplicity of the recipes, and they reminded me so much of my Mommom, and parents, I ordered a copy of my own!
