Abstract:

Building on the popularity of the cookbook America's Best Lost Recipes, Cook's Country magazine once again asked home cooks to submit their favorite dinnertime recipes and the stories behind them. And once again our readers raided the recipe boxes from their mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers to offer us their favorite family heirloom recipes (more than 1,000!). The result is this one-of-a-kind collection of recipes that celebrate classic American family dinners, from potluck casseroles to slow-cooked, guest-worthy Sunday suppers, to easy (and sometimes quirky) family favorites. We selected 100 of our favorites and then put them through the test kitchen's rigorous testing, tweaking and retesting process to make sure they work for you - every time you make them. We also give you the interesting personal stories behind each recipe, so you can really taste history. Old-fashioned recipes that really work - and that you'll really want to make. All too often collections like this might be fun to read but cooking with them is risky: recipes are poorly written, call for outdated ingredients -- or in general just don't work or are not all that appealing to begin with. All of the recipes featured in Cook's Country Best Lost Suppers have been streamlined and updated for today's cooking, like using supermarket broth and chicken pieces rather than stewing a whole chicken to make homemade bouillon. Featured recipes include comfort food classics like Pan-Fried Chicken with Milk Gravy, Yankee Pot Roast, Creamy Chicken and Waffles, one-of-a-kind recipes your family will love, like Meat-za Pie, International Dateline Chicken, Southern Braised Pork Chops 'n' Gravy, regional favorites like Pennsylvania Dutch Slippery Chicken Bott Boi (a pot pie stew with handmade noodles), Crispy Iowa Skinnies, Cheese Frenchees (a deep-fried, crunchy-coated grilled cheese) and old world classics like Sicilian Meatloaf and Savory Strudel with Beef, Potatoes, and Onions. And make sure to save room for desserts like Vanilla Wafer Cake, Maine Blueberry Grunt, Rice Pudding, and Jefferson Davis Pie. Cook's Country Best Lost Suppers is bound in a kitchen-friendly lay-flat spiral binding and loaded with color photos, illustrations, and step-by-step photos. It is a collection so appealing that it's sure to encourage families to enjoy the simple pleasures of American cooking and family dinnertime.
