Written over the years around a farm house dinner table, LifeSpice is full of over 80 favorite and kitchen-tested recipes, bits of country wisdom and reminiscences of growing up in Indiana. This delightful little book is a recording of a family’s history that may remind you of our own stories, especially if you grew up in Indiana—or got here as soon as you could. Indiana snow storms, befuddled census takers, and colorful characters provide the background stories for beloved recipes that have been tested over the year by discriminating Hoosier appetites, carefully educated at pitch-in suppers. You decide whether this is a cookbook, a storyteller’s ramblings or a book of dinner table philosophy. Whatever you think; you’ll be sure to share the recipes and the rest of it with family and friends.
