The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen Book Review

By Teri Edwards & Serena Thompson

In Country Living Magazine I kept seeing advertisements for The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen.  It looked like a fun book but since I don’t buy many books these days, I tried not to think about it.  On a rare trip to the library alone (it’s not rare that I go, just rare that I go alone!), I decided to look at the cookbook section.  I’m so glad I did!  Much to my delight, I discovered they had a copy of The Farm Chicks book!  I snatched it up and couldn’t get to the check-out counter quick enough!

What a delightful book!  It’s not just a cookbook.  There’s easy craft ideas.  Both of the authors wrote an autobiography with interesting tidbits about their growing-up lives (both grew up in the country, which I’m sure you could tell by the name of the book).  They also share stories about some of the people they’ve met on their travels of back-road-America.  And the recipes!  Oh my!  They aren’t really average but they’re not out-there either.  They are useful and unique.  I’ve already tried two recipes:  Big and Chewey Peanut Butter Cookies (they’re best with some milk chocolate chips stirred into them) and Elaine’s Farm Style Chicken Salad Sandwiches.  I have several others I’m definitely going to try.  It’s definitely a must-read!

  1. I made the Peppermint Patties today and they are very delicious (even though my cookies were softer than I think they were supposed to be).
