Description: If family-style cooking is your specialty, but you're looking for imaginative ways to add flavor and spice to your meals, you will be delighted with the recipes Ann Seranne has chosen from the recipe files and famous cookbooks of the Midwestern Junior Leagues. With over 700 recipes, The Midwestern Junior League Cookbook represents many generations of Midwestern flavors, cultures, and cuisines. Some are German, Irish, Polish, Hungarian, or Scandinavian in origin. Others are prized (and prize- winning) recipes handed down from even earlier generations of Midwesterners. But all capture the simplicity, variety, and basic goodness that distinguish Midwestern cooking; and all have that extra special something to add spice to any meal. For example: 

  • Team up a hearty sandwich (like Paul Bunyan Burgers or Puffed Open-face Sandwiches) with any one of over three dozen garden-fresh vegetable soups (German Potato Soup or Easy Michigan Gazpacho are sure to bring raves).
  • Choose from among 48 recipes for breads and coffee cakes, all made from natural grains, fruits and vegetables -- Irish Oatmeal Bread, Amish Rye, Mom's Pumpkin Bread. And for a special treat, serve an old- fashioned delight like Apple Butter, Gram's Currant Jelly, or Indiana State Fair Prize-Winning Peach Jam.
  • For special company occasions, or when the whole family comes to dinner, The Midwestern Junior League Cookbook can provide recipes for every course. You can choose from a wide variety of hot and cold appetizers and dips, and there are enough beef recipes for a month of menus.
  • Most are easy-to-fix, farm-family recipes (including six marvelous recipes for meatloaf cooked in everything from barbecue sauce to sherry); but others, like Broiled Tournedos with Sauce Bearnaise, or German Sauerbraten, are perfect for entertaining. There is also a wide selection of simple but elegant recipes for lamb, veal, pork, and poultry, as well as recipes for fish, seafood, and game.
  • The Midwestern Junior League Cook- book has the answer for the vegetable course, too. Sample one of its bean, rice, or grain dishes, or choose from among five dozen imaginative vegetable recipes for everything from asparagus to zucchini. 
  • And for dessert, treat yourself to one of the famous Junior League recipes such as original Bourbon Cake, Pecan Torte, Paper Bag Apple Pie, Mountain High Raspberry Pie, or any one of the dozens of superb cookie and candy recipes to be found in The Midwestern Junior League Cookbook.
