BLURB/FLYLEAF: At last, a cookbook from the big, comfortable kitchens of our childhood with recipes galore for all the foods you loved as a kid and never knew how to make - straight from Granny's kitchen, and Mom's, too.
In Comfort Food, Holly Garrison, a top food editor, brings back all the foods for those times when you're hungry and blue, lonely and in need of a hug, frazzled from work and yearning for those simple pleasures of life - comfort food. Within these pages you'll find Quick Pick-Me-Ups for sudden let-downs; Granny's Greatest Hits; Nursey Foods; Saturday Night Specials; Soda Fountain Treats; Semi-ethnic Soothers; Mood Changers; and Pure Chocolate (for heavy-duty blues), just to name a few.
Here are recipes for "Cure-You-Quick Chicken Soup"; Smashed Potatoes (with or without lumps); Crispy Fried Chicken with Thick Skillet Gravy; Best-Ever Corn Fritters; Creamy-Crunchy Coleslaw; the Deadliest Pecan Pie in the South; Bread-and-Butter Pudding; North-of-the-Border Chili with Beans; Meatball Sandwiches; Instant Relief Fudge; and much, much more.
CONDITION BOOK: Tight and square binding; bright pages. Most pages are clean, but there are a couple with some staining - nothing affecting text or readability, just what you'd expect to find in a well-loved and much-used older cookbook. Touch of soiling to outer page edges. There's a recipe for pizelles taped inside facing the title page; and there's a hand-written recipe for cocoa fudge on the back of the last page of the index in the back of the book. Former owner's name FFEP.
CONDITION DUST JACKET: Overall shelf wear, some staining.
