We gave it an B

Food From an American Farm is a family scrapbook of recipes, reminiscences, and old photos of just plain folks. Janeen Sarlin, who grew up on a Minnesota dairy farm, piles on the cream, butter, and corny country phrases. The book begins with the makings of those huge farm breakfasts that you’d need a few hours in the fields to appreciate, and ends with directions for reenacting Grams’ annual soap-making ritual. It’s all as genuine as the dickens. B
