create pot luck dinners, church socials, wedding banquets, and the best
desserts you've ever tasted. Every page features their simple,
no-frills recipes for pot roast, meat loaf, dumplings, corn bread,

with gorgeous photography of the chefs at work and generous portions of
their kitchen table wisdom ("Butter comes from a cow. Tell me where the

So ditch the food processor, stop wasting money on overpriced organic
frozen dinners, and start enjoying the 70 classic dishes, plus
variations, that our aunties and grandmothers have made for generations!
