Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

    

     This book is filled with choice memories of bestselling cookbook author, Phyllis Pellman Good, about time in her mother's kitchen, along with her selection of stories and memories from the followers of the Fix-It and Forget-It.com blog and Facebook page. With selected recipes throughout.

     

     So what do you remember about your kitchen as you were growing up? What all went on there besides cooking and dishwashing? Did your mom preside—and how did you know it was her domain? 

     

     Mom and Me in the Kitchen is filled with choice stories from bestselling cookbook author, Phyllis Pellman Good, along with her selection of stories and memories from the thousands of followers of the Fix-It and Forget-It.com blog and Facebook page. The memories and stories are deliciously entertaining! 

     

     And they cover these subjects:   

     

     What mealtime was like in my childhood home. Who cooked. What foods we each anticipated. What happened to picky eaters. Did everyone sat down and eat together? What we talked about. Kitchen accidents and embarrassing moments. Was Mom home? Who was involved. What happened. A special meal that Mom made for me. What was on the menu. Why I'll never forget it. How I learned to cook. It was all because of Mom. Or, it was all because Mom wasn't there. The first meal I made. What I learned never to do again. If I could go back to one time in the kitchen with Mom while I was growing up … What happened. Why that time still stands out to me. 

     

     Good chance you'll laugh and cry. Guaranteed that you'll revisit your own growing-up kitchen. And think about life with your kids in the kitchen. These personal stories and tenderly told memories include choice recipes from some cherished moms!

Review:

"An assortment of fond kitchen memories from across the country, Good's (Fix-It and Forget-It) volume reads like an extended Mother's Day card. It is an earnest reminder of relationships forged early on and the influences our parents have, but this sentimental look back, with so many different voices in such brief shots, proves unsatisfying. Reminiscences abound of mothers and mealtimes — when 'stuffed shells, lasagna, chicken and rice dishes, and homemade tuna casserole made many appearances' — of itinerant childhoods and immigrant flavors. The women discuss everything from birthdays and cooking blunders: a seven-year-old gets a sunshine cake, 'three layers with a wonderful custard between the layers' and soft yellow frosting; elsewhere a teenager asked to follow a recipe that called for a clove of garlic adds ground cloves and garlic instead. What Good's book does not provide, however, is significant context for the women's stories, so we never gain a strong enough sense of who they are as individuals. The collection doesn't lack for breadth, but it's sorely lacking in depth; it presents a composite sketch of motherhood that inevitably leaves us wanting more.
