Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful cookbook  Jan 3, 2007
I really like how simple the recipes are in this cookbook. I had initally checked it out at the library and liked it so much, got on-line to order it. My only disappointment with it is that the recipes make such small servings. I was looking for a cookbook that I could use while entertaining without having to double and triple recipes.

My favorite, in addition to the ease of the recipes, is the scripture that is immersed throughout. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this book.
 
Recommended for both the novice and accomplished cooks  Jul 25, 2006
Here's a cookbook sure to please everyone. Written by popular Christian singing star Michael W. Smith's Mama, Barbara Smith, Food That Says Welcome is a treasury of simple, imaginative, delicious recipes for preparing ahead of time so you can sit down and actually enjoy your family and guests during the meal. In the New Testament, both Paul and Peter encourage being "given to hospitality," and this cookbook is certainly an aid to this Christian grace. It is also a nice resource for those who just find joy in cooking, eating, and enjoying other people

Food That Says Welcome includes recipes for beverages, appetizers, breads, brunch, salads, soups, entrees, side dishes, and sweets, plus lists of substitutions, equivalent measures, Barbara Smith's favorite hints, and a word from her about being a Christian hostess. Each chapter begins with a Scripture, some brief anecdotal information, and a photo from the Smith family. Each easy-to-understand recipe ends with a list of items to buy and a pantry checklist. I found these pantry checklists are useful for making a list of items that should be found on your shelf. The ingredients used cover a wide range of foods, but are available in most super markets. Sprinkled throughout are "Hospitality Notes," such as which cakes freeze well and how to brown coconut in a microwave. When I tried these recipes I found them accurate, tasty, and amiable to my own particular additions and rearrangements.

Our family loves bread, and Food That Says Welcome includes several nice yeast and quick bread recipes. Strawberry Bread, baking soda risen and redolent with cinnamon and sliced strawberries, is appetizing for breakfast especially when accompanied with Barbara's Sausage Breakfast Casserole, a mixture of sausage, cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, eggs and more, quickly baked in your oven while baking the Strawberry Bread. Another nice breakfast or brunch recipe is the offspring of a pizza and a BLT: the succulent, cheesy Bacon Tomato Strata. This takes a little longer to prepare, but is one of Barbara's `prepare-the-night-before-and-bake-just before-serving' recipes.

Still on the strawberry theme, a pleasing luncheon combination is Strawberry and Mixed Green Salad with its unique dressing flavored with strawberry jam and pepper, and Kentucky Hot Brown, which starts with slices of French bread upon which are piled turkey and other ingredients, then topped with a creamy cheese sauce. Want dessert with that? Try the easily-made, yummy Oreo Cake. And for dinner we can have French Onion Soup, Ravioli Lasagna accompanied by Roasted Asparagus, followed by any one of Barbara's assortment of mouth-watering crème pies (perhaps Italian Chocolate). If you are hungry in between times, you might try one of the several salsas, apples with a special cream cheese dip, or Chicken Fingers dipped in honey and horseradish. And, to go back to the strawberries, don't forget the Favorite Strawberry Punch, which combines lemonade, frozen strawberries, and ginger ale into a thirst-quenching, senses-delighting drink.

Several old favorites are found in the collection, such as Lemon/Lime Creamy Salad, Southern Potato Salad, Cream Chicken and Biscuits, Herbed New Potatoes, and Pecan Pie. That old friend Meat Loaf is in this book, but with Barbara's own special twist; and you will also find the Amish favorite, Ham Loaf. Particularly pleasing to me is a recipe for Salt Cracker Candy. I once tasted this scrumptious confection (albeit, made with pretzels) at a Church dinner. The lady who made it assured me it could be made also with crackers and Chinese crispy noodles. She gave me the recipe, which, since it was not nailed down, I promptly lost. Now, I have this luscious recipe again.

Well worth its price, this friendly, useful cookbook, Food That Says Welcome, will make a good addition to your kitchen bookshelf. It is fun to cook with, as well as sit down and read for inspiration in further cooking. I recommend it for both novice and accomplished cooks, as well as rushed-off-their-feet and all-the-time-in-the-world cooks. - Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
 
Great cookbook for families!  Feb 26, 2006
This is a wonderful, practical cookbook for families who want to enjoy meals together, but don't have lots of time to spend in preparation. The recipes are straightforward, using easy-to-find ingredients and the meals are delicious to even the pickiest of children. There are also wonderful hints, suggestions and lessons on how to show love for our family, friends and others through hospitality. Lots of fun candid photos of Michael W. Smith & his family enjoying Barbara's food in their kitchen, too!
