There are cookbooks that are good cooking or good reading, but not always both. This one covers both well. It contains recipes familiar to anyone from Michigan or the upper midwest with interesting variations and thoughtful alternatives. The letters from Mrs. Chard and the commentary of the writer put the reader into Michigan's upper peninsula through many seasons.
Lots of good veggie recipes including many for zucchini--love the zucchini canoes, baked zucchini and brown rice and the summer squash casserole. Hot Potatoes is also yummy--tastes like German potato salad.
I love this cookbook. Everything turns out delicious on the first try.
my recipe for corn souffle is in here.
