The delightful stories in Becoming Women of Worth: Stories of Sugar & Spice and Recipes for the Holidays remind us to come into the kitchen and set a spell. We’ll swap stories of cooking and child-rearing and catch up awhile. Enchanting tales of recipe fails and culinary successes inspire the baker in all of us to craft some tastes to treat our tribe. And woven in-between are memories of loved ones, long since gone, but not before leaving their mark on our lives.
Kristen Clark has compiled a treasure trove of recipes and stories that sweeten a walk down memory lane. I am elated to be included in Becoming Women of Worth: Stories of Sugar & Spice and Recipes for the Holidays, with my contribution of “Lessons From My Bread Basket.” Working with Kristen as an editor was gratifying, and I am proud to be part of the finished product from 18 authors, including Dorothy Hill, Dorothy Johnson, Laurie Smith, Shawn Kay Sidwell, Beth Lynn Clegg, Karey Christensen, Cindy Hansberry, Jere Pfister, Linda Burklin, Janis Bell, Brenda Fiola, Leslie Fink, Terri Lacher, Hannah Williams, Peggy Redelfs, and Tasha Wilks. Recipes include bread, pie, cakes, puddings, and more.
Becoming Women of Worth: Stories of Sugar & Spice and Recipes for the Holidays would make a lovely gift for a seasoned cook or a budding baker; a great way to show your appreciation at any occasion!
