Celebrity chefs? Immersion blenders? Who needs ’em?!?
Little Old Lady Recipes honors the extraordinary women who create potluck dinners, church socials, and the best desserts you’ve ever tasted. Every page features their simple, no-frills recipes for pot roast, meat loaf, dumplings, corn bread, fried chicken, bundt cake, and other old-time favorites—along with gorgeous photography of the chefs and generous portions of kitchen table wisdom. (“Butter comes from a cow. Tell me where the heck margarine comes from, and then maybe I’ll eat it!”) So ditch the food processor, stop wasting money on overpriced organic frozen dinners, and start enjoying the classic dishes that our aunties and grandmothers have made for generations!
