Book Review: We Laugh We Cry We Cook

We Laugh We Cry We Cook

We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook A Mom and Daughter Dish about the Food That Delights Them and the Love That Binds Them

By Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph

Book Description

With down-to-earth wit, charm, love and laughter, a butter and bacon lovin’ mama and a vegan bean eatin’ daughter share humorous stories about the differences that test them, the foods that entice them, and the love that binds them.
Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line of laughter. The female side of her family tree is dotted with funny storytellers, prolific authors, hospitable home cooks, and champion chatters.
In We Love, We Laugh, We Cook, Becky—a butter and bacon loving mama—and Rachel—a vegan bean eating daughter—share stories of their crazy, wonderful, and sometimes challenging lives as Rachel becomes a mother herself.
Becky is messy; Rachel craves order. Becky forgets what month it is; Rachel is an organizational genius. (At least before baby arrives.) Sprinkled throughout are the lip-smacking, nourishing recipes they love to make and share.

From food for a family reunion of thirty, to lunch for a party of one in a high chair, to a hot meal for a sick friend, the authors demonstrate grace, acceptance, and love to others through the bonding gifts of humor, attentive listening, and cooking … whether diners prefer beef or tofu in their stew.           

My Review

A sensational read about two very different people, a mother and daughter, who love each other very much and cook up a storm from their unique perspectives that make this one extraordinary cookbook! I guarantee you will find laughter around your table like Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph have.
Along with family memories being shared in this heart-felt book, you'll glean some new new recipes that for sure are winners in my book, from meat and potatoes to healthy vegan entrees. There's 12 easy chapters to read that will bring a smile to your face, along with a recipe or two to enjoy. I especially like that the recipes are indexed in the back of the book; veg, v, and gf. Congratulations to these authors and food bloggers because I rate this book 5/5 stars and happily welcome this wonderful cookbook to my kitchen library. Get the book. You won't be disappointed.
