I collect cook books. We have cook books from the various regions we have lived in. I was pleased to have the opportunity to review Share The Bounty: Finding God's Gracethrough the Spirit of Hospitality by Benita Long.
This book includes recipes like Easy Brunswick Stew, Aunt Emma's Tea Cakes, Country Apple Pie, Grilled Chicken and Wild Rice Salad, Strawberry Rhubarb Bread, and Fireside Soup. Many of the recipes are fairly easy to make, BUT being jewish, I will be making substitutions. :0) Being a good southern book, it also has peach recipes. Sadly I am allergic to peaches, but the recipe for Blueberry Peach Coffe cake will definitely be appreciated by those who are able to eat peaches.
The recipes are beautifully presented, and the writing is like sitting down with a friend to swap recipes. I love filling up our home with people. Thanksgiving will be for about 40 people. I am planning our menu now and have been given great ideas through this book.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
