Read in August, 1998 — I own a copy

I really enjoyed reading this cookbook written by David Letterman’s mom and loaded with family photos, anecdotes and Midwestern recipes that remind me of my Indiana roots. I especially got a kick out of Dave calling his mother from New York for directions on how to make his favorite fried bologna sandwich. I used to love these sandwiches as a teenager, only I always put cheese on the bologna before taking it out of the skillet, so it would be gooey and yummy! Just had Dave’s Mom’s Hot Tuna sandwiches for Lenten Friday night supper—so good, only I substituted Anaheim peppers for the Jalapeños—not so hot. Besides the fun of reading, there are lots of good recipes—marinated carrots, Hoosier chili, and lemon pudding cake are other favorites.
