Little Old Lady Recipes honors the extraordinary women who create potluck dinners, church socials, and the best desserts you've ever tasted. Every page features their simple, no-frills recipes for pot roast, meat loaf, dumplings, corn bread, fried chicken, bundt cake, and other old-time favorites--along with gorgeous photography of the chefs and generous portions of kitchen table wisdom. ("Butter comes from a cow. Tell me where the heck margarine comes from, and then maybe I'll eat it!") So ditch the food processor, stop wasting money on overpriced organic frozen dinners, and start enjoying the classic dishes that our aunties and grandmothers have made for generations!

Be forewarned this book is bound backwards, and upside down. The library staff was notified but she didn't seem to make note of it.
Other than that, the recipes are "casalinga", as Nadia G would say, nothing fancy just plain home cooking. I did make the "Chocolate Chip Cookies" on page 140, and they were very good. Intend to make them again soon. One of the contributors to the collection served this spoonful of wisdon: "The most important thing is to be able to ride the rollercoaster. If you can do that gracefully, you'll be good in life."

This is a wonderful group of simple recipes, words of wisdom, and stunning photos of the lovely women who contributed to this book. Worth borrowing for the portraits alone, they are faith restoring!
