Homegrown in the Ozarks: Mountain Meals and Memories
Growing up, Rolland Love roamed the Ozark Mountains, floated its rivers, and provided food for the family. "We grew vegetables, hunted game, and enjoyed the rivers' bounty," he says. "We were self-sufficient. And there was no need to travel, we already lived in paradise."
Fried sweet corn and peppers
Grandma's chicken 'n' dumplin's

While I was reading this cookbook I felt like I was sitting around a campfire or fireplace listening to a favorite uncle tell stories about his childhood. I also liked that the recipes were local for his area with homegrown, foraged and hunted ingredients, many of which are available right here in my homestate of Michigan.

Also fun Ozark mountain trivia and folklore scattered throughout the book too. And don't skip the recipe for skunk. Seriously.
