Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good
A Memoir of Food and Love From An American Midwest FamilyBook - 2014
This family history with recipes offers a flavorful tale spanning three generations as Flinn returns to the mix of food and memoir readers loved in her best-seller The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry. From a Route 66 trek to San Francisco to their Michigan farm to the shores of Florida, humor and adventure defines her family even in the worst of times. You'll savor Uncle Clarence's divine corn-flake-crusted fried chicken, Grandpa Charles' spicy San Antonio chili and her grandmother's birthday-only cinnamon rolls. Through these flavors, Flinn came to understand how meals can be memories and cooking can be communication. Brimming with warmth and wit, readers will delight in this revealing look at a family that just might resemble your own.--From publisher description.
