Food Family Style
Title: FOOD FAMILY STYLE
Author: Leigh Oliver Vickery
Genre: Family cookbook
FOOD FAMILY STYLE is a beautiful cookbook, full of simple, tasty recipes for every day life. I love the beautiful picture on the cover, and some of the recipes made me hungry. We tried the recipe for Slow Cooker Jambalaya last night for supper and it was absolutely wonderful. It had a little bit of a kick for those of us who like things mild, and more can be added for those who like it spicier.
I also tried the recipe for Banana Foster French Toast with some modifications. It was good as well. I used homemade bread, instead of store bought French bread, and I didn’t add the maple syrup immediately in the amount specified. We added our own, if we wanted it, and some didn’t.
There are suggestions for getting kids involved in the kitchen, menus for special occasions, basics for those who need them, proportion distortion, and the usual selection of snacks and beverages, breakfast, sandwiches, soups and salads, main dishes, side dishes, desserts and more.
I can’t wait to try other recipes in this cookbook, such as Farmer’s Market Stir Fry. It sounds wonderful. Recommended. $14.99. 272 pages.
