Many of my happiest memories are of summer days spent at my grandmother's house. Removed from parental eyes I was pretty much free to do as I pleased, and eat the wonderful food that my grandmother prepared. In addition to the fun games and mornings of reading in a hammock I well remember the hours my grandmother spent in the kitchen preparing a full breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fortunately, she loved to cook. However, if she'd had a choice I'll bet she would have liked to have more time to enjoy the other activities she loved, whether it was quilting or her needlepoint. Cooking for a day to eat for a month would have been a concept she could not even imagine. How lucky we are! Many are already familiar with Deborah Taylor-Hough's Frozen Assets cookbooks, and enjoy the easy to follow as well as good tasting recipes. I especially like the free time it gives me. (Grandmother's love of cooking gene didn't come to me). 'Frozen Assets: Readers' Favorites' is a very special one in this popular series as it contains just what the title states - a collection of readers' favorite recipes, all judged in a search for what the author and editor considered to be the best. The loose leaf pages in a plastic coated cover shows these folks know what cooks need. One of my pet peeves is a cookbook that won't lie flat when you're trying to following a recipe! There are tabs in the back for sections where you an add your personal recipes, worksheets, etc. Of course, what's most important? The recipes, and they're terrific. It's easy to see why they're favorites! Breakfast includes such yummies as Ham & Cheese Crepes and Perfectly Pleasing Pancakes. The chapter titled 'Soups & Sides' offers an Apple Barley Soup that's incredible as well as superb cornbread muffins. Other chapters include vegetarian dishes and desserts. Over 170 pages of recipes and tips! Knowing the author she has, of course, included information on how to cook for freezing, creating a month long meal plan, and the supplies you'll need in your kitchen. 'Frozen Assets: Readers' Favorites' is a prime resource for new brides as well as seasoned (pun intended) cooks. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
