Country Heaven Cookbook: Family Recipes and Remembrances

Author:  Ava Miles
Genre:  Cookbook

Four Stars
 
Ava's cookbook serves up a feast of scrumptious, soul-satisfying, cowboy-approved comfort food for the whole family. Included here are recipes for her famous spongy cornbread, decadent gingerbread waffles, and her family's chocolate chip pie. It's a fun hodgepodge of Southern cuisine and family farm recipes.

Readers have enjoyed the scrumptious recipes Ava wrote for COUNTRY HEAVEN so much that she wanted to share them all together in a cookbook with some extra family recipes NOT included in the book. The cookbook entries describe her heroine's reflections about her grandmother, who taught her to cook, and Ava's reflections about her grandma as well, who made food come alive for her.

This companion to COUNTRY HEAVEN, the first book in her new Dare River series set in the South, is connected to her bestselling small town Dare Valley series that started with the#1 National Bestseller, NORA ROBERTS LAND. If you haven't read COUNTRY HEAVEN yet, this is a great chance to see how beautifully food is woven into the story between her sassy heroine, Tory Simmons, and her steamy country singer, Rye Crenshaw. Ava has included an extended excerpt of COUNTRY HEAVEN at the end for your enjoyment.

This cookbook isn't very large - only about 67 pages, so there aren't tons of recipes for anyone who is looking for a good-sized cookbook or a lot of lunch/supper menus.  However, the recipes are pure country all the way, and appear easy enough for anyone to make.  Still, they're pretty good and a nice addition to your collection if you are interested in Southern comfort food.
