The Porch Swing Cookbook: Letters, Songs and Recipes from Grandmother is a cookbook, full of small-town Midwestern and Southern recipes, but it's also much more than that. Each retro recipe includes an excerpt from one of the many letters Jeanne Anne Craig and Sue Earnest received in the 1960s from their wise, loving, and very funny grandmother. These letters take readers back to a slower time, an era when families cooked and hung out with each other. Now, family affection may be constrained or restricted, due to schedules and attitudes, but through this grandmother's letters and recipes, readers may find themselves re-creating the family table she valued so much.
