About the Book
Few things in life are better than comfort food—familiar recipes and smells often invoke a sense of happiness and well-being. Combining traditional comfort recipes with nostalgia for the kitchen of another era, the editors of Grit personally selected a collection of comfort food recipes from the popular country living magazine’s archives to create their new book!

GRIT MAGAZINE’S COMFORT FOOD COOKBOOK uses both personal stories and 230 time-tested recipes to allow your mom’s, and even her mom’s, favorite recipes to live again in the modern kitchen. Fully illustrated with guides for measuring, storing, and entertaining, the book also features recipes such as:

  • Creamy Summer Corn Chowder
  • Roast Beef With Blackberry Ketchup
  • Oven-Fried Honey Chicken
  • Cheesy New Potatoes With Bacon
  • Mushroom Beef Stew With Dumplings
  • Cheddar Herb Biscuits
  • Skillet Peach Cobbler
  • Butterscotch Fudge

This traditional yet completely unique cookbook offers a peek at the cooks and kitchens of yesteryear by bringing the best of Grit's comfort food recipes into the modern, twenty-first-century kitchen.

Rediscover and recreate your favorite meals with GRIT MAGAZINE’S COMFORT FOOD COOKBOOK—a unique guide to traditional comfort food classics from a century’s worth of cooking.

My Take on the Book
If you love down home cooking, this cookbook is for you. Filled with amazing recipes, and a wide array of food to choose from your mouth will start watering from the first time you see the amazing pictures of the recipes that are shown to you. The cookbook is laid out well and gives you directions that are easy to follow. I also liked the fact that the book is not filled with ingredients that are hard to find or are not things you would typically have on hand. Instead, I found that in many of the recipes I had many of the items on hand and only would have to go to the store for some items. All-in-all this was a great cookbook that has items that not only look delicious, but in the two that I have tried thus far, they taste great too!
