From Karlynn Johnston, the bestselling author of Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky and the blogger behind The Kitchen Magpie, comes a delicious combination of nostalgic recipes and new prairie favorites for family dinners, potluck parties, picnics, and gatherings of every kind.
The Prairie Table recaptures the nostalgic magic of the days of social gatherings, with tables groaning under the weight of a multitude of dishes contributed by every guest; of food eaten under sunshine-filled blue skies, in wide open spaces; of family meals crowded around the kitchen table.
Karlynn knows that the dishes cooked with comfort in mind--made with love, and filled honest ingredients--are those that are greeted with the biggest smiles, and she shares them with you in this, her second cookbook. Inside, you will find more than 100 recipes for breads, buns and baked goods; small bites and nibbles; salads and vegetable sides; comforting main dishes; dainties and cookies; and libations--as well as a whole chapter dedicated to celebrating the Ukrainian heritage of the Prairies--all served with a huge dose of heart. Delightful dishes include Grandma Ellen's Cold Picnic Barbecue Fried Chicken, Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Watergate Salad Trifle, and Streusel Apple Pie Bread Pudding, as well as pitcher-friendly cocktails like Strawberry Rhubarb Gin Fizz. Everything is accompanied with photos of the dishes in Karlynn's amazing vintage dishware collection.
The Prairie Table will delight readers in the prairies and plains all across North America.
