Although preparing regular family meals can be difficult, it is worth every effort. Dinner provides an opportunity to gather and refresh while spending time together around the table enjoying a meal.

Karen Jones Gowen has collected and tested the book’s 100 recipes of main dishes, sides and desserts from years of experience cooking for a large family. Whether you’re feeding a family on a budget or need ideas on menu planning, this cookbook is the perfect companion for the busy, working cook.

Hearty home-cooking using basic ingredients, plenty of fresh vegetables (and don’t forget the bacon) you will return to these recipes again and again when planning dinners for your family or entertaining for company.

Note to Kindle readers: The ebook version contains links between recipes, to assist you in finding the sides that go with each main dish. It does not, however, contain the full color photographs that are in the print version.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Have For Every Mother of the Multitudes! 5. August 2013
Von Grandma - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Boy did Karen Jones Gowen bring back memories with her latest, Farm Girl Country Cooking: Hearty Meals for the Active Family! Many a day I turned out two entire sheet pans of biscuits and mixed pancakes in a 4 quart bowl. A houseful of teens can eat you out of house & home in the blink of an eye and they are always hungry.

Looking at Karen's picture, she and I are about of an age. Crockpots were all the rage when we were first learning to cook in the late 60s and early 70's. Julia Child had made them popular as a way to cook beans and even Farm Journal put out recipes using the Crockpot. That was when I first learned to cook Mexican food, something I learned from another military wife - a California farm girl - when I was in Germany. I started turning out a stir fry now and then too, so I was delighted to see that Karen included some of those recipes. For those who feel Mexican, stir fry and a crock pot doesn't qualify as "farm food", do let me point out that this book is named after Karen's first book, Farm Girl - a compilation of stories told by her 90 year old mother about growing up on a farm in the 1920s. These are the recipes that Karen used to feed her large family, not the food that her Farm Girl mother ate growing up on the farm.

Now, if you have a small family, maybe just a child or two at home or even none at all, then this is not the cookbook for you. The recipes are all much too large. You would be eating the same one thing for a week! (Great if you want to fill your freezer though.) However, if you have the makings of your own basketball team, then Farm Girl Country Cooking: Hearty Meals for the Active Family will be a life-saver.

Full of extra-large recipes for Main Dishes, Salads & Vegetables, Yeast Breads, Quick Breads & Grains, and Desserts there are recipes for every taste. Nearly all of them are economical. After all, Karen raised 10 children on a shoe string. Oddly, she started out not knowing how to cook and not liking it very much either. Karen had me in stitches as she made her utter dislike of the thankless, never-ending task of feeding a houseful clear.

You'll want to pay close attention to the opening chapter, where you'll find time-tested strategies for feeding the multitudes. (Karen's strategies work. They're mostly the same as those I used myself.) I particularly like her Rule of Three - the idea that serving three items turns a snack into a meal.

The Kindle version of the book features an interactive Table of Contents listing every recipe. (View the list from the Look Inside feature at the top of the page.) Main dishes center around casseroles and soups, with a few stir fries and crock pot specialties for good measure. Salads & Vegetables are often inventive. I really liked the idea for Salad in a Bag and the Oven Baked Fries Karen suggests as a way to use up baking potatoes that are still edible but bit past their prime. The Broccoli Salad sounds luscious. I could see my own children eating that without the first quibble. (I can't wait to taste it - just as soon as I cut the recipe into two servings.)

The easiest way that I know of to cut your grocery bill dramatically is to bake your own bread. It tastes better, isn't loaded with preservatives like the stuff you buy in the store, and costs a mere fraction of the price. Karen gives a wealth of easy recipes for both quick and yeast raised breads.

Teens, of course, seem to not think that they've eaten unless they've had something sweet. Karen includes numerous recipes for easy-to-make cakes, cookies (mostly bar cookies), brownies and more. You'll find the recipe for the famous Texas Sheet Cake, large batch Brownies and some Coconut Lime Squares that sound luscious and of course, much more. (Luckily, I don't bake for 1 or 2!)

I do have one (well, two) very minor quibbles. Karen's recipe for homemade Enchilada Sauce is mostly tomato sauce. Real Enchilada Sauce is mostly chile. Similarly, Karen adds canned tomato sauce to her Salsa Fresca, which makes it Salsa (probably excellent) but not Fresca. Fresca means "fresh" - real Salsa Fresca has nothing canned in it at all.

Grandma's $0.02 - Two thumbs up, super job and a Must-Have for every large family!

Highly recommended

I enjoy recipe books that don't call for odd or hard to find ingredients. The fact that I can make most of the recipes from items I have on hand in our kitchen is an absolute plus.

Good all around cooking. Simple ingredients, easy to follow recipes. It appears that the recipes can be doubled, or used just as is.

I liked the easy to follow directions and the authors clear purpose to provide hearty family meals. However, saying that she strives for healthy recipes is a bit of a stretch. They are not bad, but I would not set this aside as a healthy recipes cookbook.
