The Essential Mormon Cookbook was a runaway bestseller! Now you can find more secret combinations for your favorite foods in a new collection of home-style recipes. Essential Mormon Celebrations contains recipes for traditional holiday meals with sections like "The Night Before Christmas", "Easter Dinner", and "New Year's Brunch".

This volume also includes recipes and ideas for the nontraditional parties and celebrations that are so much a part of our culture: tailgate picnics, wedding and baby showers, homecomings, Pioneer Day commemorations, family reunions, and much, much more.

More than 200 recipes are divided by seasons and events in this second volume of irresistible Mormon comfort food.

About the Author:

Julie Badger Jensen has had a lifetime passion for cooking and entertaining. She began a recipe box at age 8 with the entry of "Lovable Lime Jell-O." When she was a young teenager, her first published recipe appeared in the Deseret News column. She graduated from the University of Utah and has been the food editor of Utah Home and Lifestyles and Meridian Magazine.

From Publishers Weekly:

Jensen follows up her beloved Essential Mormon Cookbook with this handy, spiral-bound hardcover. Like the first book, it's organized by the four seasons, but this sequel is preoccupied less with day-to-day cooking than with special events. There are recipes for holidays both major (Christmas, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving) and minor (Mother's Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day), as well as scattered occasions throughout the year: bridal and baby showers, a missionary homecoming, a graduation and a tailgating party, among other events. A few of the first book's recipes are repurposed here: orange rolls, glazed carrots and peas ("a family favorite," Jensen explains), and wassail all put in a sophomore appearance. But most of the recipes are new, including some international fare: there's a pan-Asian menu for New Year's Eve, a Tex-Mex feast for Cinco de Mayo, and an Irish dinner for Saint Patrick's Day. Despite the international forays, Jensen clearly favors stick-to-your-ribs American comfort food that is easy to prepare and made with ingredients a family may already have on hand. You don't have to be Mormon to appreciate this helpful book, though there are nods to Latter-day Saints culinary traditions, including suggestions for food for Pioneer Day (when Mormons remember their pioneer ancestors each July 24), and a menu for "conference dinner," a make-ahead meal for those two weekends a year that Mormons all over the world watch General Conference by satellite. And of course, Jell-O-a cultural staple for many American Mormons-features prominently in several recipes.
