Simple, good and sassy! These ladies know how to bring the goods in the kitchen!
This little gem of a book is hilarious! Not only do these older (70 and up) share their recipes with us, they had me cracking up at the advice!
From homemade applesauce to pork chops and so many more. These are simple, tried and true dishes like the ones we used to look forward to whenever the church had any kind of potluck.
The beauty of the book is the photos of the ladies and a quote from each. Such as:
“We had to eat a lot of beans and greens, vegetables-that was during the depression. Mom made one thing and you didn’t get anything else. So you learned to like it.” Rita,80
“Club soda is a wonderful thing. You can use it to remove any stain, or mix it with gin and drink until you don’t care about the stain anymore.” Chastity, 72
“Butter comes from cows. Tell me where the heck margarine comes from, and then maybe I’ll eat it.” Phyllis, 72
” A grandmother isn’t the same thing as a restaurant. Shut up and eat the eggs.” Ruth, 77
And my all time fave! “The best thing I make is reservations.” Anna, 96
It is the sweetest book and I thank my own little old lady who gave it to me!
