The author, Chris Kimball:
"The fourth squirrel is in the freezer. See you Saturday!"
Although one of my Vermont neighbors once did serve me squirrel (the squirrel was good; it was the woodchuck that was a bit greasy), The Yellow Farmhouse Cookbook is really about investigating the best methods of making classic country recipes such as apple pie and apple crisp, roast turkey, pot roast, baking powder biscuits, lemon meringue pie, chicken fricassee, mashed potatoes, potato salad, coleslaw, strawberry jam, chocolate chip cookies, and much more. If you ever wondered how to bake a pumpkin pie with a crisp crust, make an apple crisp with a truly crisp topping, make a tomato sauce in 10 minutes that tastes fresh and lively, cook up perfect rice every time, make pie pastry that is easy to roll out and doesn’t shrink when baked, or make a roast that is fall-apart tender and juicy, this is the book for you. The Yellow Farmhouse is filled with over 300 carefully researched and tested recipes including a 40 minute whole wheat soda bread, country meatloaf, raspberry rectangles, hermit bars, stews, soups, preserves, breads, etc. I have also tested plenty of cookware for this book with actual ratings of specific brands including hand-held mixers, inexpensive chef’s knives, cookie sheets, muffin tins, loaf pans, saucepans, graters, and instant read thermometers. (Hint: Cheap supermarket cookie sheets work better than more expensive brands.) In addition to the recipes, you’ll also meet a cast of characters from Floyd Bentley who was painted by Norman Rockwell in Breaking Home Ties, to Rob Woodcock who was known to harvest Christmas trees with a shotgun, and my neighbor, Jean, who once invited my wife and I over for that dinner of woodchuck and squirrel. You’ll be invited to atttend our annual Ox Roast potluck supper in August, march along with us in the July 4 parade, sing "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" at our Old Home Day celebration, and go swimming at the Baptist Hole just behind the Methodist Church. Come and take a seat at the table, back warmed by the old green Kalamazoo wood cookstove, and share the food and the stories. We’d be glad of your company.  Order this Book
