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

Farm Girl Country Cooking: Hearty Meals for the Active Family by Karen Jones Gowen
Being raised near a farm I thought this would bring back a lot of memories of the food we grew up on-fresh grown.
Rule of three makes sense to the way we eat now. Love the added suggestions on what other foods could be placed on the menu.
Found the main meals/casseroles to use a lot of meat-something we have maybe once a week now but gave me ideas on combining a few recipes together for a meal.
Love getting back to basics with dry beans. Loved muffins the best and refrigerated dough that can be used for cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls.
Lacking are the pictures of food made but otherwise a good resource for old time cooking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great cookbook! Basics with much more 12. November 2013
Von C. A. Bunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I downloaded this cookbook while free, but it's one of the few I have used, plan to use more and would actually pay for. I like that this is basic "down-home" type cooking with basic ingredients. Don't be fooled, though, as there is great variety here. Most are hearty and the author makes no pretenses about this being a low-cal or health-food type of book. However, there is really no use of pre-packaged items (except the pistachio pudding mix in the cake I'm dying to try). The cakes and desserts sound amazing. I can see my kids enjoying many of her main dish recipes ( Sausage Egg Casserole, Hamburger Tamale Pie, etc.)

Several of the recipes take some time (refrigerated yeast rolls, several soups), but not a lot of complicated, "hands-on" time. I plan to use several of these recipes. My 10-year-old daughter was excited about Ms. Gowen's cookbook and immediately selected the orange spice cake to make. The cake (which also calls for carrots) turned out amazing. She had a little trouble with the frosting. Instructions may assume one has a basic knowledge of cooking. (I've grown spoiled with the step-by-step approach of Pioneer Woman and similar. However, this book really doesn't call for any complicated techniques, either.) That's my only minor issue with this book. Some mouth-watering photos would be nice, too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I've Reviewed Many Cookbooks - But Few Like This 24. Juni 2014
Von Steve Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It's easy to write a crappy cookbook. You steal a bunch of recipes that rely on commercial products like Cool Whip that more closely resemble Plastic Wood than real food, and you paste them together without even bothering to try them out.

Even of the recipe is good, the ingredients can change without your realizing it. Mama had a recipe that used Coco Wheats, a chocolate-flavored hot cereal. Recently, I bought a box of Coco Wheats only to discover that the company had gone out of business, and the brand name had been sold to Malt-O-Meal, to slap on some horrible crap. I'd been eating Coco Wheats since the 1050s, and they'd always been consistently good but as George Harrison sang, all things must pass,

I first read the author's recipe for honey oat bread, because I have a great recipe I developed myself. It was almost identical to my old recipe. (I've since switched from oik to lard, because oil gives a softer crust, and lard give a slightly more buttery flavor.) Then I checked out the recipe for tomato pie. She adds golden raisins, which sounds like a great variation on the pie I love.

All the recipes are like that.

Some cookbooks are great for giving you ideas about what to fix for supper. Some are great at teaching the fundamentals of a new cuisine, such as egg drop soup, etc. Some are handy references when you make something infrequently, and don't want to forget to include the tumeric or mace.

This one, though, is the workhorse cookbook to give to the new bride, tekling her how to make real food that tastes really great and keeps her family healthy. By the time she makes all these recipes, she'll.have neighbors begging her to open a restaurant, so they can eat something decent for a change instead of boxed meals from Kroger, delivery from Papa John's, garbage from Applebees and styro foods from fast food restaurants,

This isn't a recommendation. This is an imperative. You NEED a cookbook like this. SIX sears!
3.0 von 5 Sternen Down-home recipes to feed a crowd 1. Juli 2014

This book of recipes was an easy read, and the recipes were easy to follow and ideal for anyone looking to feed a large and hungry brood. There were plenty of healthy recipes (salads and vegetables), mixed with heavier, midwestern and southern dishes. That said, the use of canned ingredients and soup mixes isn't really my style in general, and some may not be available where you live, especially if like myself, you live abroad.
