This was such a sweet trip down memory lane. My mother had cookbooks very similar to this when I was a child, and I would spend hours just reading the cookie sections. While Best Recipes from the Farmer's Wife Cookbook does have many delicious savory classic recipes like Swedish meatballs and Stuffed Pork Lion, Id have to say i was most impressed with the cookie, cakes and other dessert recipes. So many tried and true classic recipes! I highly recommend Best Recipes from the Farmer's Wife Cookbook to anyone looking for a great classic American recipe cookbook.
