Description: With 100 full-color illustrations In every part of the country and in every season, cooking and sharing food is an integral part of hospitality and celebration. Farmhouse Cooking presents a delightful collection of traditional dishes to feed the family year round, from summer picnics and cozy winter dinners to the simple sharing of the bounty of the earth with family and friends.
Here are uncomplicated, homey recipes, arranged season by season, along with helpful suggestions for menus, gifts from the kitchen, foods to make ahead and freeze, and special holiday celebrations. Spring brings tender vegetables, luscious berries, and succulent lamb. Celebrate this season of rebirth with tempting recipes for Easter, Passover, St. Patrick's Day, or any special occasion. Try a new twist on a springtime favorite with Wild Thyme Asparagus, or such classics as Corned Beef and Cabbage and Blueberry Crumb Cake.
Summer is the time for lighter meals or outdoor barbecues, also offering the freshest, juiciest fruits of the year, and red, ripe tomatoes. Temptations such as Maryland Fried Chicken, Grilled Zucchini with Lemon and Rosemary, or Tomato Soup with Garden Basil are perfect for light summer dining. Top off a balmy summer evening with a Purple Plum Tart or everyone's favorite. Strawberry Shortcake.
Autumn arrives before we know it, with a chill in the air and a desire for heartier, warming foods. Crisp, fresh apples are a particular fall treat, whether eaten out-of-hand or transformed into Classic Apple Pie or Baked Apples with Honey and Raisins. And of course, there are festive recipes just right for Thanksgiving, such as Holiday Stuffed Turkey, Cranberry Relish, and Roasted Sweet and White Potatoes.
Winter inspires us to go to our kitchens and cook up full-bodied stews, heavenly baked goods, and hot drinks. To satisfy hearty appetites, cook up a mouth-watering array of cold-weather favorites like Sausage and White Bean Casserole, Chocolate Spice Bundt Cake, and Ice Skater's Hot Mulled Cider.
Filled with tasty recipes and luscious, full-color photographs, Farmhouse Cooking is sure to be a favorite source of inspiration for many delicious family meals and a welcome gift for any cook, from novice to professional.
