Writing for several years as a newspaper columnist, Audrey Thibodeau combined the common-sense advice her grandmother passed down to her with down-home recipes she had gathered over the years. This compilation of Thibodeau's articles brings out the best of what Grandmother Used to Say, highlighting the humorous, but practical approach her grandmother brought to life and showind readers how applicable the advice still is today. Some of Grandmother's sayings include:
*Swallow your pride occasionally... it's non-fattening.
*The only things children wear out faster than shoes are teachers and parents.
*Nostalgia is a file that removes the rough edge from the good old days.
*The only way a do-it-yourselfer can stop hitting his thumb is to have his wife hold the nail.
Grandmother's saying provide the themes for Thibodeau's articles, which each end with a recipe that will leave readers' mouths watering. The articles are arranged chronologically, charting a course through the seasons and holidays that shape our memories of each year. These articles appeared as a weekly column for several years in newspapers around the country.
About the Author: Audrey Shuler Thibodeau grew up in small towns in southeastern Colorado. Her grandparents built their ranch in that area in the late 1800s. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Her mother grew up on the ranch and told many stories of the pioneer life. Audrey was fortunate enough to spend some time at the ranc when she was young. A newspaper reporter asked her once, "How long have you been cooking?" Her answer was, "Longer than you want to know." That would also be her answer for writing. In addition to writing the articles collected in this book, Audrey was Food Editor for the Caledonian Record in St. Johnsbury, VT, and a Field Editor for Taste of Home Magazine in Greendale, WI. She has written about food for various newspapers, websites, and magazines. She now calls Mesa, AZ her home.
