I love this cookbook - it's probably one of my favorites. I've ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food is always really, really good. My copy was my Mom's and I wouldn't ever get rid of it.
The recipes look as if they were printed as they were written by the contributors with some instructions being as simple as "Bake at 350 20-30 minutes" for a cake recipe. I guess they assume you know the basics of cooking and baking. Throughout the book are quotes, sayings, jokes, old-time wisdom, weather advice and bible verses. Those are always fun to read.
There are now four volumes.
Recipes I like include Taco Salad, Confetti Salad, Marshmallow Brownies, Red Velvet Cake, and Zucchini Bread.
