I won this book from Foodies Read 2016. If you like foodie books you might want to check it out at

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.

Good, basic homemade recipes that remind me of when I was little and dinners at my grandma's house and my great aunts' homes. Also meals with my Aunt Ruth and Uncle Jack who hunted all the time and I was never sure what critter the meat really came from. I decided early on it was better not to ask.

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