A Cup of Jo's recommendation. So far it's great! I couldn't put it down.
Throughout the story the author weaves in her family's recipes, noting that cooking up these helped her family get through hard times. Since she recently lost her job, there's nothing better then pulling out the yellowed paper filled with these family heirlooms to help her get through her newest challenge.
She has a bunch of recipes for soup in the beginning, perfect reading for a winter night!
