St. Marys, Pennsylvania Trumps New York City?

My little old hometown in Pennsylvania, St. Marys, population 13,000 - roughly one third of Gloucester, is way ahead of even New York City. Well, okay, when it comes to Amazon's Best Sellers in Middle Atlantic Cooking anyway. This just blows my mind. This is from Amazon's Best Seller Middle Atlantic Cooking today. Look at all the cookbooks from New York - The Fire Island Cookbook, Clinton St. Bakery, Daniel Boulud, New Brooklyn - and look at what's #1!

As one who enjoys reading cookbooks.. this one knocked my socks off! It's one of the better written of all the cookbooks I've read over the years. I can see that I'll need to get a hardbound copy of this book.. as it's so full of SO many recipes.. that I want to make.. that trying to use my kindle in the kitchen around making meals.. is impractical.

I also enjoyed the many little helpful tidbits about the Valentine family and friends! It's nice to read for whom a recipe came from.. and for whom it was made! As a Mom.. we all know that "one" favorite dish that a kid likes.. and we make it for them.. on special occasions!

Not just a cookbook.. it makes you feel like you're an extension of their family!

What a charming cookbook! Family memories interwoven with wonderful, homespun recipes. I didn't expect much when buying this as a free Kindle book, but it's a lovely collection. Pick it up -- you will feel like you know the author and her family.

I *Thoroughy* enjoyed reading this, when I eventually try the recipes I hope they warm the belly as much as the stories warmed my heart. If you enjoy a little history and old family stories do not pass this book up. The recipes are a bonus.

I recommended this book to someone I know, who probably grew up eating many of these dishes. The rest of us can surely find several keeper recipes we have never had before. Fat Drunk & Happy Cake sounds like a keeper for me. Plus probably up my popularity to boot.

I am a amature home foodie and i have made several recipes from this cookbook and each one has been really terrific. The most recent i made this moring was the "Anne`s Apple Puff Pancake" i didnt have apples at the time so i used Bananas and this turned into a Bananas Foster Pancake. I then used the Maple Cream recipe in the same book to top my creation and "OMG" I dare anyone to have breakfast better than this at any 5 star restaurant!!!
Next in the line up is the homemade lemon meringue pie and thanks to Kathleen this coming Christmas i`m making Christmas Stollen!


Thanks so much to all who have purchased it!
