Cherries in Winter: My Family's Recipe for Hope in Hard Times (Vintage)by Susan Colon
Synopses & Reviews
When Suzan Colón was laid off from her dream job at a national magazine, she needed to cut her budget, and fast. That meant dusting off her grandmother Matilda’s old recipe folder and learning how to cook cheaply and simply. But Suzan found more than just amazing recipes—she found a new appreciation for the strong women in her family and the key to their survival through hard times.
Full of heart, Cherries in Winter is an irresistible gem of a book. It makes you want to cook, it makes you want to know your own family's stories, and, above all, it makes you feel rich no matter what.
In a tattered treasure full of handwritten and meticulously typed recipes and peppered with her grandmother Matilda's commentary in the margins, Coln finds recipes for "sturdy food" and begins uncovering the stories of her resilient family's past.
