HarperCollins Publishers Ltd | March 26, 2012 | Trade Paperback

In My Mother's Kitchen: Three Generations of Simple, Delicious Family Food is rated 0 out of 5 by 1.

For many of us, our mother''s kitchen is a place where memories and meals are shared. Trish Magwood is no exception. Her mother fed six hungry kids delicious, simple food every day; they always sat at the table, and they always had dessert. It''s also where they carved pumpkins, pulled out first teeth, learned to tie shoes, cried over spilled milk and stuck together as a large and boisterous family, over yummy food. In Trish''s grandmother''s kitchen, it was the same story, as it is in her own. Trish loves feeding her three children and husband new recipes, and tried and true favourites from her mother and grandmother. Collected here are early century recipes for tomato butter and crab apple jelly, sixties and seventies classics like cheese soufflé and Cottage Barbecue Pineapple Chicken, and new favourites such as chili tacos and Mimi''s barbequed sweet sour pork with sticky rice. Interspersed with the wonderful recipes are gorgeous photos of food, memorabilia and shots of the family''s kitchen garden, where the children learn where their food comes from.In My Mother''s Kitchen is an unapologetically nostalgic look at food and memory, but from a modern, busy-mom perspective. You can go home again, but bring the Cuisinart with you!
