The Cape Cod Cookbook by Jerome Ruben
I picked up this gem at the local library last night. Cape Cod means a lot to me… it was my Grandmother’s favorite place, my dad’s childhood vacation spot, and most importantly…where The Bears got engaged! When I saw this book shoved between some Southern cookbooks on a shelf, I quickly stuffed in into my library bag before anyone could snatch it up (b/c everyone looks Yankee cooking obviously).
So last night, in good cookbook reviewing fashion, I snuggled up into the corner of the couch with a notebook and pen, prepared to write down some of my favorite recipes. From this list I will choose some recipes to try out, and others to copy into my own personal recipe book for later use. After I realized I had recorded the page numbers of the first 30 recipes, I decided that it was more than likely I was going to love 90% of the 210 recipes the book offered. Mr. Bear is going to be thrilled when he sees this…
I like to make a two week dinner menu before I make my list for the grocery store – I usually have breakfast and lunch suggestions on the menu as well. This weekend I will be making the most delicious menu yet! Obviously it is going to be based on the bestest, most mouth-watering, and financially practical recipes I have found in this incredible cookbook.
I will most definitely post the winners when the Bear’s Two Week Dinner Menu is complete!
Ooo… but wait… there is a Raspberry Breakfast Cake that might have to make an appearance one morning! Perhaps I will be making menus for more than one meal of the day…
