Home for Supper: Memories and Recipes by Margaret Barnhart
Twelve stories, more than thirty recipes, and 145 pages of enjoyment.
For those who recall growing up in post-war, rural America and coming of age in the turbulent 1960s, these stories will have special resonance. The title itself reminds us of a time when children and adolescents were sent off on their own unsupervised work or play with the parental admonition to be “home for supper,” a phrase that both limited freedom and offered a haven at the end of the day. These well-told memories will stir readers of many ages and experience. Those who try out the traditional recipes will enjoy the additional pleasure of comfort food usually only found at home with family. Savor it all.
