I am not one who likes stories of dysfunctional families and I appreciate that the dysfunctions are smoothed out or merely hinted at because the emphasis is on how the recipe came into the family or how someone learned to cook. By wrapping the stories around the kitchen we can take the good with the bad, especially when it com I loved this book which is much more memoir than recipe collection. By wrapping the stories around the kitchen we can take the good with the bad, especially when it comes with a helping of Axhead Soup or Chicken and Dressing.

Feb 21, Sharon rated it really liked it Shelves: I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more had I already read a couple of his earlier books and been familiar with his family. And for that reason the second half of the book was far more enjoyable - I finally knew who I was reading about and I am in awe of their resourcefulness. I became interested in the South ever since reading Hillbilly Elegy by J. My great grandparents moved to Washington State from Missouri when my grandmother was three. My great grandmother was a Southern cook and she taught my grandmother and mother, both who cooked for a living like Margaret.

I have put off writing a review of this book, because I have found it hard to find the right words. To say I loved it just does not portray the feelings I have for this memory of family and food. Except for a few regional differences, these are the recipes of my North Carolina family, and these are their experiences. Every photographs, with so many appearing to be made in those old carnival photo booths, touched my heart. I cried over turtle stews as I recalled my uncle once a year firing up the I have put off writing a review of this book, because I have found it hard to find the right words.

I cried over turtle stews as I recalled my uncle once a year firing up the pit in a field behind our house, and all those long gone men passing the jar and waiting for their bowls. I remembered my grandma packing her brown paper bag and threatening to go back to live at the old house, if my grandpa didn't go over and get her woodstove and get shed of that new electric stove. There are few books that a reader can live in, but this is one. Especially, if you are a Southerner of textile or tenant farming descent, don't miss this one.

Thank you, thank you, Rick Bragg. Jul 18, Grace rated it it was amazing. I lightly read this book and gave it four stars then ordered the audio. I finished listening yesterday just before arriving at a yearly camping trip at Gold Lake, CA. My friend met me at my car and I said I just finished the best book and burst into tears. I then said "it's a cook book" at which point we both laughed. I cannot remember ever being so moved by a cook book; I laughed and cried. So far I have made the creamed onions, slaw and short ribs and will make them all again.

I especially love when he writes about his big southern family that frequently reminds me of my own grandparents and great aunts and uncles who grew up in the South. They brought many of the southern traditions and recipes with them when they all made their way to California during the Depression. Some of our best times together were spent gathered around the table, eating, poking fun at one another, and laughing ourselves Bragg is a delicious mix of Twain, Steinbeck, Faulkner, and Robert Frost. Some of our best times together were spent gathered around the table, eating, poking fun at one another, and laughing ourselves silly.

This book felt like traveling back in time when they were all still here. It's a blessing to come from such people, and it's a joy to read Bragg's books. Mar 31, Lori rated it it was ok. Rick Bragg relates family stories as he shares some of his mother's recipes. His mother, like most Southern cooks of that generation, did not follow recipes.

She cooked by eyeballing things and getting the ratio correct based on practice. The family stories needed editing.

They failed to draw me in, partly because of excess verbiage and lack of action verbs. Most recipes can be found in other Southern regional cookbooks.

In the electronic advance copy, the recipe's conclusion often bumps into text following it, making it difficult for readers. The distinction between the recipe and stories about the recipe needs more separation as well.

Perhaps his identification of his mother as the best cook in the world elicits the most contentious point of the book. Because my mom in the neighboring state of Mississippi earned that honor.

I received an advance electronic copy of the book through NetGalley with the expectation of an honest review. I love that this man has been all over the world and reported about all sorts of things, but the love and obvious affection he has for his family and his land trumps it all. But what you will find is fresh food made the way my grandmothers used to cook. When I first opened the book, I flipped through and was a little disappointed. I know how to fry okra and make cornbread. There are only two faults with this book. You will gain 10 pounds reading it and may need cholesterol meds just from reading the words "bacon fat" and "butter" so often.

He didn't include the recipe for crabapple jelly, which is perhaps the best thing my grandmother ever made and which I've not a clue how she did it. I've probably bought a hundred jars of crabapple jelly over the years, and not one of them tastes likes hers. Based on everything else I saw in this book, I bet Margaret Bra There are only two faults with this book. Based on everything else I saw in this book, I bet Margaret Bragg's crabapple jelly would come damn close.

This also may be the funniest cookbook ever written. Everything that hits the table has a story, and Bragg gives us not only the story, but the often meandering logic with which elders choose to share it and the even more meandering way it gets connected to dinner. Then he shares his attempts to get cooking instructions for the dishes from a woman who probably never measured anything in her life because she just knew. The result is a hugely entertaining collection of stories and a mouth-watering if heart-stopping collection of recipes.

In all honesty, I'll probably never make a thing from it except that buttermilk pie because I've not had any of that in decades , but not because I don't think the food is good. I recognize most of it and remember the flavors well. It's just that there's some things you can't substitute and his mam's right: May 30, Sue Em rated it it was amazing. Storytelling at its greatest. Each chapter limns the hardscrabble lives of his kin in Alabama through love and food with stories and recipes. A chapter or two each night was a perfect cap to my day.

For lovers of Southern writing and Southern food. Jun 05, Susan rated it it was amazing. OMG, to ME, this is the best book in the world. I'm currently listening to the audio version, read by the author, and am on chapter I have never had quite this experience with a book before, where I look forward to my daily mile-each-way commute, just so I can keep listening! Genealogist meets Storyteller meets Hillbilly. It's a record of times and places and ways of life, all culminating into the origin of Rick's families recipes, which have been passed down for generations.

Every recipe has a story, a memory attached to it. My own family has just a few recipes that have stories attached to them. This book is a rich wealth for Rick Bragg's family, and will itself be a genealogical record worth more than gold to his descendants. Rick Bragg's writing is utterly lyrical. It will make you laugh, if you can understand the at-times-thick drawl.

Took me a chapter or two to get used to it, but I now find myself coming home from my daily commute, speaking with a bit of a drawl myself these days. A magical book, that is just hard to describe. I already know it. I will cry when it's over. Or maybe just start listening to it all over again, as it's quite a long book. But, I don't mind. Thanks to Netgalley for letting me read this early. This was the first Rick Bragg book I've read. And I can't wait to read more.

Loved the inside look into this family by memories and recipes. Loved all the recipes, because I know they are family, shared over the years, just like some of my favorite recipes. Bragg, You made me cry during a story about hamburgers. You made laugh during a story about a beloved pet who gets run over by a truck when the occupants are late to an important fried chicken dinner. You made me hungry. I am left missing my grandparents and wanting desperately to make some cubed steak for dinner. Thank you for these stories. Me As other reviewers have mentioned, there are a few places where I felt some careful editing may have made this a better book overall.

Yet, I didn Dear Mr. Yet, I didn't care because of how much each of these stories and recipes made me feel. Not nostalgia exactly because who wants to go hungry during the depression, or lose a loved one, or try and made amends only through food, but for a taste of the love and care put into food made by people who love you and whom you love in return. It's a beautiful tribute to his mother, but feel a better title would be "The Best Cooks in the World" as it is more a story of the generations of cooks in his family, not just his mother.

I only allowed myself to read one chapter at a time because I did not want the book to come to an end. Bragg makes me want to devour foods that I would never want to try. How does he manage to make pig's feet sound delicious? I love that he writes about regular people in an unpretentious way. He doesn't turn the people in his books into Southern caricatures; he appreciates them for who they are.

May 29, Amy Booth rated it it was amazing. Braggs is an excellent storyteller; I found myself crying over a recipe for green beans with potatoes! His use of language is unsurpassed by any modern American writer. Bragg presents his people and events with compassion and humor. The Best Cook in the World. His stories of his people in the blue-collar, rural South connect to the recipes. Southern culture is not just one culture. I grew up in the deep South myself, yet in a different culture.

Yet my own mama and grandmother made many of these foods. I make some of them today, however my recipes are a bit more health conscious. I bought the book in two formats.

Welcome to Riffle! Here's what's up.

This time however, I bought the hardcopy as well. This is a book to visit and revisit. Lots of down-home wisdom and more cooking advice than you can imagine. Apr 11, Marjorie Elwood rated it liked it Shelves: This started off promisingly, with fascinating stories about the author's family and life in the South, as well as mouth-watering recipes butter rolls, buttermilk pie, real biscuits, deviled eggs. Unfortunately, it could have used some editing and tightening up as it dragged on a bit.

Mar 27, Diane Ferbrache rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book! From Rick Bragg's engaging and amazingly readable prose to his family's endearing, funny, and sometimes shocking stories to the wonderful recipes that I can't wait to try, this is a great book. Part memoir, part homage to his mother, this is a great addition to Bragg's story that began with All Over but the Shoutin'. His dysfunctional family has produced an amazing writer. Read this book AND try the recipes! Thank you, NetGalley, for letting me read this book!

May 07, Kathleen E. I absolutely love Lydia Dabcovich's drawings in her children's book, Mrs. Huggins and Her Hen Hannah. Loved reading this book outloud! I have a copy of Sherry's first cookbook, Taste of Pinecraft: Recipes and Stories from the Amish of Sarasota, Florida, a combination of new recipes and portions from that original collection, and gladly awaited its arrival.

This title is also available as a Zondervan ebook. Complete with lay-flat binding, and photos throughout, Sherry's collection and tips, and special notes are heart-warming and a little bit of pie-heaven! Tasty recipes easy to prepare and serve our family and do-drop-in friends. My husband and I mainly eat chicken and fish, so we will enjoy these recipes.

It tasted similar to chicken to me. A fried chicken tip: If a crisp crust is desired, cover pan for the first half of cooking period, then uncover. If a tender crust is desired, brown pieces with pan uncovered and then remove them to rack in roasting pan. Cover and bake 1 hour. There is a wonderful Index of Recipes in the back to salivate over, but not ruin your book, I hope. I like the notes throughout; various clippings from The Budget newspaper; Sherry's gleanings, always offered with love: These recipes, like the Amish themselves, are straightforward and plain, but never boring.

That is why this book is called Simply Delicious Amish Cooking. And whoopie pies are a dessert I've probably made hundreds of times; even sold them at farmer's markets at one point. And so as soon as I get that spoon in my hand I am off. I forget about that camera. I forget that I'm by myself. I'm just Sherry Gore talking about her home while making a tasty treat. How can that go wrong? There are the whoopie pies. First Cooking Video-Whoopie Pies! Cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla. Add baking soda, salt, hot water, cocoa, and flour.

Drop by table spoon onto greased cookie sheet and bake 12 minutes. Makes approximately 40 whoopie pies. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; mix well. Beat in egg whites until filling is fluffy. To assemble pies, spread a heaping spoonful of filling on flat side of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies.

This book is the author's consolidation of recipes from friends, neighbours and the local community, brought about through frustration that there was no real local recipe book. Amish cooking, as described by the author, is traditional fuss-free cooking, yet with many international origins at its heart. Food plays an important part in all of our lives but for the Amish it is central to their core, whether it is entertaining friends and family or reaching out to someone in need with the offer of food.

Despite the food being possibly considered as basic or boring, you will find through these pages that there is nothing bad about these good, honest dishes. The ingredients combine and speak for themselves. Flowery language and descriptive prose is not necessary here. You get what you see. The book in some ways follows this vein too. It might seem a bit austere with its predominantly black and white text and the occasional photograph, when compared to other cookbooks and in some ways there are elements that could be improved or polished about, but the core, central information is in any case interesting, well presented and designed to get you cooking.

Mixed in with the recipes are various boxes with advice, guidance and clippings from an Amish newspaper. An interesting aside, perhaps, and harmless in any case. The recipes are reasonably laid out but don't go looking for photographs of each dish. Nowadays it just feels wrong not to have at least a small portrait of the finished item. International readers might have a small problem with the measures being solely in U.

No doubt foreign cooks will manage and convert things for themselves, but why not just put the measures in dual units from the get-go? Things are rounded off by an index of recipes, split by chapter rather than the conventional way of listing everything in various alphabetical forms. It was one of the stranger index types this reviewer has seen and it didn't really aid navigation of this book.

See a Problem?

Much could be learned to transform this book from a good, average read to something much more accessible and engaging. It is a shame as there is a lot to offer from this book but much of it is "hidden". This book was so-near to being a good four "YUM" book but it just fell down on the execution. When you have a book of this kind if you want to attract the "outsider" you need to up your game a little as otherwise you are just singing to the converted.

As I read Simply Delicious, I felt like I was cooking at home with my mother, my grandmother and my favorite aunt. You are not just cooking, and you are not doing it alone. But it is most definitely a book about cooking. Some of the recipes are those wonderfully made-from-scratch semi-decadent Amish dishes. It has alternatives, and that is a very good thing. I also loved how the recipes were written: Since these recipes are written by everyday homemakers or cooking enthusiasts, their wording is very familiar, very easy to understand and to follow.

The tips included are very useful. The tip on the substitutions for different types of flour was wonderful, as well as how to keep brown sugar soft a big help for me. Also, the different tips on cooking seafood, among a few others, were very helpful, and made this cookbook a great addition to my kitchen for my everyday use. Many recipes are written with a large family in mind, since Amish families are usually pretty big. So for a family of three, like mine, there was a lot left over, which meant that my father, my mother and my sister got to enjoy them also.

And isn't that exactly one of the purposes of Amish cooking and, therefore, this book? To share your meals, your stories, your lessons learned, and the goodness of God with your family and friends. Feb 26, Elizabeth "Eli" Olmedo rated it really liked it. Simply Delicious Amish Cooking is just that — simply delicious!

So here are just a few of the reasons that have made this cookbook a favorite of mine. I finally found it. One of them for a church potluck and everyone loved it. The sweet of the fruit, the crunch of the nuts, and the salt of the cheese make for one yummy explosion of flavor. This fit the bill perfectly. Despite arriving home late, I had nice meal ready in time. The curry gives the salad a nice little kick. Because the meat only called for salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce I went ahead and added some spices.

It turned out really yummy. Definitely something to repeat. This salty snack barely made it a day. The pretzels were so good and very addicting. Needless to say, I love this collection of recipes! If you are looking for simple and delicious, this is the cookbook for you. Review copy provided by the publisher. May 07, Laura rated it it was amazing.

This book is different—being as this Amish community is set in Florida, they enjoy such items as Alligator Stew or Alligator nuggets. But I would love to try it! We loved everything we tried. Highly recommend this cookbook.

Spiral bound, so it opens easily, and stays open for ease of cooking. May 30, Jessica rated it it was amazing. This looks like an excellent cookbook! I have wanted to make it ever since reading an Amish fiction novel where the family made and sold it, so that one popped out right away! I have read lots of complaints from reviewers about using items like jello, pudding, and canned fruit, etc, and also about recipes not being healthy. In my experience, I live in an Amish area and am Mennonite , typical Amish and Mennonite cooking is not meant to be healthy!

Most co This looks like an excellent cookbook! Most conservative amish and Mennonite are working so hard physically every day, there isn't much need for dieting. And I'm not surprised either at the use of canned fruits my guess is that some would use their home canned items anyway and mixes. The recipes look delicious and I recognize many of them as being common in our area also. My mom makes Poor Man's Steak, and we love hamloaf though I've never attempted to make it from scratch I'm tempted though, it looks so simple!

The breads look amazing; amish bread is famous around here and I'd love to be able to make my own! And Country Caramel French Toast And for a super traditional dessert around here in central PA anyway , try the whoopie pies! There is an excellent range of items; delicious looking desserts, breads, breakfast items, main dishes, salads, cookies Alligator Stew may be difficult to make if you aren't seaside, but there are a lot of other options, like Grilled Lime Fish Fillets, and Peppered Lime batter for fish. I'm not a seafood eater, but I may have to try those! The stories peppered throughout the book are like snippets of Amish life, stories about family life- they may not be super exciting, but its a neat peek into Amish living- it feels like you are reading bits out of the Budget!

If you are looking for a healthy, simple living cookbook, then this is probably not the one for you. If you want good, simple, authentic Amish food, then try it! Tons of great recipes and a peek at Amish life. In looking at the pictures, it seems that that Pinecroft Amish are more like conservative Mennonites in our area central PA , though I believe there are more liberal Amish in the Lancaster area as well.

Either way, the food is very similar to Amish and Mennonite food here as well. I recieved a copy of this book for my honest review from the publisher.
