...like MY mom and grandmoms never used to make. You see, we're Yankees.
If you're a Yankee like me who is smitten with the Mitford series by Jan Karon, you might enjoy the Mitford Cookbook, which my mom found today at Borders bookstore, marked down to $3.99! This is a $30 cookbook, folks!
The actual title is Jan Karon's Mitford Cookbook & Kitchen Reader. It's got recipes (4 for cornbread alone!) and little excerpts from books. The recipes are organized by which Mitford novel mentions them, and there's a handy index in the back if you want to find your recipes some other way.
This is a reader's cookbook, not just a book of formulas. There are tips, stories of Karon's own family traditions, and more.
I'll be savoring this one.
