Food That Really Schmecks and More Food That Really Schmecks have been outstanding bestsellers, treasured by thousands of Canadians. When she finished writing those books, Edna Staebler had some recipes that hadn’t fit in the previous books, and readers kept sending her new ones. Soon she had more than 400 recipes – and another book. Schmecks Appeal is chock full of old standbys and wonderful new recipes for everything from coffee cakes to one-course meals. These recipes don’t use fancy ingredients; they are wholesome and straightforward, and they all really schmeck (taste good). As in the other books, Edna Staebler includes warm and witty stories on a variety of people and places. Read, cook, eat, enjoy – here’s a book with real schmecks appeal!
In addition to her cookbooks and other books, Edna Staebler has written for Maclean’s and Chatelaine magazines. She lives outside Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.
