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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite cookbook I have dozens of cookbooks and this is my favourite. The recipes are straightforward and tasty - things you're actually going to eat, rather than flag for some "special occasion dinner" that never ends up happening. Some of my most often used recipes from the book are the chocolate chip cookies, the cheddar scones and the roasted cauliflower with sage. I love the photos and the stories.
