New Cookbook on My Shelf

America’ Hometown Recipe Book

Edited by Barbara Greenman

Watching a segment on The Today Show the other day about a mom’s challenge to all of us to purchase only “made in America” products for one week really got me thinking about what I purchase for my kitchen alone. When I saw this cookbook at a local gift shop, Coach Light, the red, white and blue color and the title made me think of America.  With the 4th of July nearing and thoughts of new recipes for upcoming celebrations, I picked up this cookbook and fell in love.  America’s Hometown Recipe Book has 712 favorite tried and true recipes from people all across America.  I have too many post-its to mention attached to the pages of this cookbook to remind me of the recipes I want to try. Author, Barbara Greenman, tried to focus on delicious, easy, homemade food when she complied the recipes to include in this great find.  Some of the contents I’ve bookmarked to make are Strawberry Omelet, Black-Eyed Pea Hummus, Springtime Salad, Pork Piccadillo, Swiss Scalloped Potatoes, Shoo-Fly Pie and Coconut-Cream Cheese Pound Cake.  I can’t wait to share my results with you!  Checkout the Cookbook Page at My Kitchen Addictions for more of my favorite cookbooks.  Also, check out this challenge from a mom in America.
