Click to preview Dish to Dish... Nebraska Cooking pocket and trade book

Kay O'Hanlon Young grew up in the Nebraska small town of Blair. The town's population of 6,800 never seems to go up or down. Much of life stays pretty predictable. Football is king, Jell-O could arguably be a part of the food pyramid and the volunteer fire department whistle still blows at 6:00 pm sharp. In this cookbook she shares the recipes of her childhood.
Her mother's dishes resembled many of the other kitchens in town and in the state. "Secret" recipes really did not exist but were traded and passed along through the generations. These foods are hearty, sweet, fried and gravied. Today, modern cooks choose a lighter, healthier fare for their stovetops. This book reminds us of what food used to taste like. It pays homage to a time when milk was delivered right to your refrigerator and things were uncomplicated.This is a memoir and a family cookbook written for her Mother. It is filled with the dishes she grew up with. She hope it brings a smile to your face.

Kay, thanks for responding. I too was looking at the trade book for cost, the bigger books get expensive very quickly, and when I saw yours was 118 pp for $19, I was pleasantly surprised. I have a few pages in this format, and printed them out in actual size, I think it will be just fine.

Melissa,
Thank you so very much for the compliment about my cookbook. It was a lot of work to get all the photos together, but well worth the effort. This was written as a gift for my 93 year old Mother, Blanche. I did use the smaller trade size version for my book because I was trying to save on the costs. We have a large family and I wanted to get a book for a lot of them . However, I think the type ended up being hard to read for my mother's eyesight. So if I had to do it again, I would not have gone so small. Good luck with your own cookbook. Let me know when it is done so I can see your "baby"! Cheers~Kay Young

Kay, I love your cookbook! I am in the process of gathering old family recipes to preserve and document and share with family. I was debating on adding family pictures and stories in addition to the recipes, then when I saw yours, I love it! My question is the size, did you find the trade size 6 x 9 big enough?
