Mrs. Appleyard's Kitchen
Comfort food in all its glory is the focus of this charming all-American cookbook. Mrs. Appleyard on pot roast: "...a dish of such noble nature when it has been given a mother's care for two days..." that it guarantees tender results. Chapters explain weights and measures, extensive baking and dessert recipes, hors d'oeuvres, preserves, salads, soups, and sauces--with great tips on what to do with leftovers. Complete menus are planned out for ladies' luncheons, main meals, and holidays. Presented with wit and practical advice, these savory recipes are tailored to the novice cook and purposefully assume no previous knowledge on the part of the reader. This allows for the most clearly-defined instructions one is likely to find in any cookbook. Originally published in 1942, Mrs. Appleyard's reminiscences evoke the warmth and aromas of Grandma's kitchen while entreating us to cook, "Now with brains, but with love." Book jacket.
