Synopsis:

We all have fond memories of the comforting, delicious food our grandmothers made, of leisurely meals around the dining room table, and of treasured recipes handed down from generation to generation. But in too many families, these recipes went unrecorded and so have been lost to time.

In Just Like Grandma Used to Make, America's favorite grandmother, Lois Wyse, aided by Liza Antelo and Sherri Pincus, has recaptured the tastes of grandma's table in a multiethnic collection of more than 170 sure-fire, time-tested recipes from the days when Mom's apple pie was a staple on the table, not a joke in a comedy club: Chicken Pot Pie and Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies, Swedish Meatballs and Greek Dolmas, Portuguese Caldo Verde and Miso Soup from Japan, and French Blanquette de Veau and Spaghetti with Cauliflower and Zucchini from the south of Italy. And of course there are the delectable treats that Grandma made just for us: Honey Rice Pudding, Chocolate Birthday Cake with Fudge Frosting, Chocolate Toffee Squares, Lemon Poppy-Seed Pound Cake, Gingerbread People, and Marshmallow Fudge. Adding spice to the mix are the stories that accompany each recipe, told in Lois Wyse's warm and familiar voice.

Adopted for today's home cook, the dishes in Just Like Grandma Used to Make are rich in taste and satisfaction. Prepared and served with love, they are meant to be shared with family and friends to create a new legacy of traditions and memories.

Review: Lois Wyse understands why the recipes for dishes our grandmothers made are every family's true treasures. She wants to prevent the loss of these traditional recipes, which our grandmothers often failed to write out. Wyse's collection of grandma recipes includes familiar regional and ethnic favorites--Chicken Paprikash, Creamed Spinach, Pecan Pie, and so on. Other recipes strike a rarely felt chord of familiarity if you grew up with Johnny Mazetti (a meaty macaroni and cheese casserole) or Poppel Poppel (a bacon and potato omelet) and other specifically local dishes.

Many recipes were contributed by Wyse's friends or acquaintances, who explain their family history. Others, like the moussaka identified simply as "from an extraordinary Greek cook," are strangely anonymous, considering the premise of this book.

Reading Just Like Grandma Used to Make may send you digging for an old notebook where your own family treasures are recorded, or get you into the kitchen to start recreating a dish that lives in your memory. That, one suspects, is what Wyse really intends with this comprehensive collection. --Dana Jacobi
