This is a book I saw on the first visit to our small town library and loved it immediately. It is by Cheryl Mendelson who returns to her homemaking basics, learned from her Mother and Grandmothers, after years as a lawyer. I appreciate her unabashed respect for the art of homemaking and thorough research, even in this modern woman's day, to create a completely comfortable home.
While I haven't used any of these incredible recipes yet (and I really need to get on that) I about drool over the beautiful photography. The preserves have a huge variety (I had never heard of chutney before) and include very interesting herbs, spices, and suggestions for gifting and serving. (did you know that pickled red cabbage can be served cold or hot? Well I didn't.)
So those are a couple of the books I have enjoyed very much, and you may too.
Enjoy the day, wherever you may be!
This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
