This is a wonderful cookbook filled with recipes and narration aimed to bring families closer together. Not too long ago, the dinner table was a place the family gathered around to share good food and to connect with each other. This has been going by the wayside as society has become busier and faster-paced. The information provided in Back to the Family, accompanied by rich photographs, can help us regain a little of this lifestyle before it is lost forever. Whether sharing breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack, a family can use these recipes to draw closer together.

Recipe sections include: Relishes; Drinks and punches; Eggs and omelets; Grits; Breakfast casseroles; Hotcakes, biscuits, and fritters; Soup as a meal; Starters and salads; Hot sandwiches; Meat and fish; Sides; Brines and aromatics; Breads and pizza dough; Pizzas; and Sauces and Desserts. The cookbook offers a large variety of recipes spanning every meal range from the simple to the complex. Breakfast casserole with ciabatta, Roasted Pumpkin and butternut squash soup, Coleslaw, Turkey Panini, Butterfly Pork Loin with garlic, red pepper, and cider vinegar, Grilled flank steak, Baked Beans, Herb-Roasted Potatoes, Focaccia with goat cheese and herbs, Cinnamon Rolls, and Flan - these are just a few of the delectable recipes provided. My own family particularly enjoyed the Oven Barbecued Ribs and Split Roasted Herbed Chicken.

If you are searching for family-friendly recipes that are just a cut above the ordinary, as well as some enjoyable and uplifting commentary, then Back to the Family is an excellent choice.
