GRANDMA'S COOKING

A mouth-watering recall of Grandma's cooking, back in the days when the hills of eastern Connecticut meant winters of deep snows, cleared ice ponds, skating, fishing through the ice, molasses pulls, coasting -- and late snacks in Grandma's kitchen. The farmhouse comes to life with its characteristics, and there's nostalgic recall of stereoscope and favorite scenes, of gypsies and the RFD mailman, of strawberry festivals and May baskets, of itinerant peddlers and vendors, of outings in the Stanley steamer, of sleighrides in winter. And always there are favorite dishes -- with names that are fun to remember:- Anadama bread, Holypokes, War Office Pie, huckleberry slump, apple pan dowdy, Banbury tarts, and so on. The last half of the book is a Yankee cookbook, based on Grandma's cooking.
