Book Review - "Return to Sunday Dinner"
Sunday Dinner has always been an important part of my life, from when I was a young child and having Sunday Dinner at my grandmother's house to now having dinner at my parents' house still almost every Sunday. Therefore, I was excited to get a chance to review Russell Cronkhite's "Return To Sunday Dinner." Sunday Dinner is so much more than just sitting down and eating, it is a time to spend with loved ones, enjoy talking and time spent together and enjoying a meal; all this together is what creates this weekly event of Sunday Dinner. Cronkhite has created 24 meals that he shares the recipes for in this book, some are more "fancier" than others, but all have the potential to be that Sunday Dinner that family will gather around a table eating together, making memories. Also, Cronkhite shared thoughts and comments about each menu, thus helping to guide you toward the meal you want to serve for a certain type of Sunday Dinner setting. There are also tips shared for prep work and time savers to help the cooking and serving go more smoothly and will not wasting precious time. There is a wide variety of recipes included in this cookbook and the pictures are very nice as well. This is a book that you will not to miss out on as it will have you thinking back to Sunday Dinners and have you thinking ahead to Sunday Dinners yet to come!
