Overview

A book of recipes, remembrances and hand-me-down wisdom.

Written over the years around a farmhouse dinner table, LifeSpice is full of over 80 favorite and kitchen-tested recipes, bits of country wisdom and reminiscences of growing up in Indiana. This delightful little book is a recording of a family's history that may remind you of your own stories, especially if you grew up in Indiana—or got here as soon as you could.

Indiana snow storms, befuddled census takers, and colorful characters provide the background stories for beloved recipes that have been tested over the years by discriminating Hoosier appetites, carefully educated at pitch-in suppers.

You decide whether this is a cookbook, a storyteller's ramblings or a book of dinner table philosophy. Whatever you think, you'll be sure to share the recipes and the rest of it with family and friends.

    Lifespice: Good Cookin', Good Stories

    Lifespice is a humorous look at family anecdotes in Southern Indiana. Most of these anecdotes center around the family dinner table or were shared there. Daina Chamness brings a delightful sense of family, community and loving to her collection of delicious recipes through stories of local lore and remembrances of times past. This book would be a great gift to add to anyone's kitchen collection.

    Lifespice is a delight!

    Picture yourself sitting at a kitchen table in a Midwestern kitchen. Smell the wonderful smells that radiate from the stove. Listen to the delightful stories shared by family and friends. If you can picture, smell, and listen, Lifespice will delight all your senses. It is a wonderful approach with both new and old recipes to share.
