This book is than just a memoir than a cookbook It is about a family who have shared their secrets to feeding a lot of people on a nickle who have passed down traditions along with their cooking who took care of one another even if they didn t like each other much sometimes and who even shared a precious cast iron skillet at one time or anotherWanting to preserve the amazing dishes Rick Bragg decides to try to get it all down on paper before it s lost This is not an easy task as Margaret Bragg does not own a cookbook does not measure any ingredients and does it the way she and generations before her were taught You know a tad a smidgen and just enough She doesn t time anything in the oven yer nose will tell ya when it s done She is correctThe book goes back through generations of what I can only call characters and the book is humorous at times Everything from the man who ran away to live on his own in the woods to his being begged to come back and teach a new wife to cook before her husband starved the begging was by the husband who was so thin at this point he was ready to disappear He succeeds in bringing him back and there is no love found between the man and his son s new wife In fact they almost downright hate each other for a while Their story alone makes this a worthwhile read Will the wife shoot the old man Will the husband wither away and die from her bad cooking Will the law find the old man and finally take him inSome of the recipes won t fly so well in today s world although there are people even some I know who have cooked raccoon and suirrels In this book it s a matter of survivalI loved the book It s a keeper to be enjoyed again
