Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Shirley Reis
Having grown up in a large African American family, Patty Pinner fondly remembers the rich and sugary desserts that ended each meal. Each recipe includes a description of the occasions on which each was served, and a commentary about the woman who usually prepared the dish, with many photos from her large and loving family. After reading the book introduction, chapter introductions, and recipe commentaries, one has a good sense of Pinner's loving family history. Her descriptions of the individuals featured make them come alive. Some of her special recipes are: Big Mama's ‘Nana Pudding, Sister Hewlett's Sugar Cookies, Aint Bessie's Pineapple Pie, Sister Baby's Whiskey Cake, Cud'n Flossie's Walnut Wonder Cake, Cud'n Ebelle's Old-Fashioned Sugar Pie and Make You Want To Slap Yo' Mama Blueberry Pie. The recipes are great and the stories are wonderful.

    More Than Just A Cookbook

    This is a wonderful cookbook with tons of great, old-fashioned treats and lots of lovely little stories that stayed with me long after I'd put the book down. What a unique cookbook!!

    Nostagia at its Best!!!

    I had the absolute pleasure of reading this book while visiting my sister on vacation and I just couldn't put it down. It made me appreciate the wonderful memories that we had as children and how so much of those good memories revolved around food. This book is a keepsake. Something to be passed on from generation to generation. I would recommend this book to ALL!! I can't wait to share with my grandchildren some day.

    I love this book!

    My sister gave me this book as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it! The book is part cookbook, part memoir. The stories are so warm and nostalgic. The recipes are classics. This is a book that I'll pass on to my daughters.
