For Christmas, my sister gave me The Complete Cook’s Country TV Show Cookbook.
At first, I was kind of puzzled. I’d never seen the show. But a few pages in, and I was drooling.
There was a new kind of pecan pie that doesn’t use Karo syrup I’m dying to try…
The only thing I like better than apple pie is a full sheet pan worth of it. Yum. It’s got a glaze, people. A glaze.
The cool thing about the cookbook is the scientific explanations and backstory of the show sprinkled in with the recipes. It makes me feel like I watched the show even though I didn’t, and I love all the homestyle, good old-fashioned homecooking recipes that don’t rely on canned soups or tons of processed ingredients.
Now if only I can find 19 more people to eat the apple slab pie with me…
Or maybe I’ll just freeze it. You’d believe me, right?
Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! A new story manana!
