Recipes are like stories.
They get passed around and retold over and over again by family and friends, changing a little bit in the retelling until they become the property of the teller.
This cookbook is full of recipes from my Granny's kitchen and stories about the summers I spent with her, my Papa and the rest of the Mitchell and MacGregor clans down at the Lake of the Ozarks in Camdenton, Missouri.
Jill MacGregor lives in Seattle and cooks with her Granny's cast iron pans on a very regular basis. Jill thinks we all might be happier if we ate more pickles, picked more flowers and stopped worrying so much about bacon.
