    I love this cookbook. Food is such an important part of Jan Karon's Mitford series and all the recipes are in this cookbook. Even better are the little stories and quotes. I love this cookbook.

    So if you know me at all, you'd know that this cookbook would get five stars from me no matter what. I just LOVE Mitford. But really, if I put on my impartiality hat, I'd still give it at least four stars, and maybe five. It's a really well-developed cookbook, chock full of recipes related to the book series. So many recipes! Interspersed are excerpts from the books PLUS one never-before-published bonus story!I tried several recipes: Father Tim's Company Stew, Puny's Cornbread, Rector's Meatloaf So if you know me at all, you'd know that this cookbook would get five stars from me no matter what.

Interspersed are excerpts from the books PLUS one never-before-published bonus story!I tried several recipes: Father Tim's Company Stew, Puny's Cornbread, Rector's Meatloaf, Dooley's Fried Baloney Sandwich Supreme, Louella's Cornbread, Jan Karon's Banana and Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Esther's Orange Marmalade Cake, Harley's Brownies, Puny's Macaroni and Cheese. ALL DELICIOUS. There are more than 4 dozen recipes in this beautiful hardcover cookbook. The only thing that might detract half a star: no photographs of food. But it's so full of special features and stories... you could read this cookbook like a book. And with so many recipes, you're sure to find at least a few recipes to suit your tastes!Major props and gratitude to my SIL for gifting this one to me. I spent much time poring over every excerpt, story, recipe intro, and recipe. I will treasure and consult this cookbook for many, many years to come. I should probably make her an OMC to thank her!

    I bought the cookbook just to get the recipe for Esther's famous Orange Marmalade Cake. I haven't made it---but I could! If one has read the Mitford Series , one can better appreciate this cookbook--as certain comfort foods are often associated with certain beloved Mitford characters. Plus, there are cute little stories next to the recipes that will make more sense to a Mitford reader. I bought the cookbook just to get the recipe for Esther's famous Orange Marmalade Cake.

    I’m a huge Jan Karon fan and I love this book. The story snippets that go with the recipes make them feel like something I’ve received from family. I’m one of those strange people who enjoys reading recipe books, but this one really touches my heart and inspires me to step into the kitchen and get busy!

    Just adorable stories and the recipes look easy and are clearly written. I read a friend's book ,which had clearly been used, cause there was batter on the pages :) (One of my cookbooks is COVERED in batter).

    All those wonderful, recipes described in her books are now in their own cookbook. Very well done. Each is extremely easy to follow. If you have read The Mitford Series, you have already read half the cookbook. A great review of delightful fictional town where you feel you know everyone like family.Enjoy the yummy recipes!

    This is actually my second time reading this book. I love the whole Mitford series and especially love how this book weaves the stories from all the other books with the dishes that are discussed in those books and gives us “the” recipes!

    Love the idea of getting recipes for things that I feel like I have already tasted. That's the way the Mitford series is. It makes you feel like you have been a part of every day life with the characters. Excellent series and a great cook book.

    Love so many of these recipes..directly from the Mitford series books. I've tried many of these recipes and have added them to my personal family recipe book.

    The theme for March's Monthly Motif is Genre Jumble. I'm trying to read from my shelves more this year and as I perused them I found them full of my favorite genres. What a surprise! So I dug deeper on the shelves and found this little gem that I bought at a thrift store after I'd read the series and was in love with all things Mitford. But I never read it because it's a cookbook and I hate to cook. Wanting to fulfill the challenge, I pulled it out and dived in.

But I never read it because it's a cookbook and I hate to cook. Wanting to fulfill the challenge, I pulled it out and dived in. It has excerpts from the books that talk about certain foods being cooked for an occasion and then the recipe for said foods. It was really fun to re-visit Mitford in little chunks. The book has Louella's Fried Chicken, Esther's famous Orange Marmalade Cake, Dooley's Fried Baloney Sandwiches, and Cynthia's Lasagna, as well as other well-known dishes by the Mitford locals. A fun read, a lovely book, and some great recipes.

    Wow! I thought I would just thumb through this book to look at the recipes, but I was hooked from the first page. I read and loved every word. I think you would have to had to read the entire Mitford series to enjoy it like I did. I did read all those books years ago and the Mitford Cookbook brought all the delightful stories back to this grateful reader. I had started to read Jan Karon's latest Father Tim book, In the Company of Others, and was so disappointed in it that I gave up. But after re Wow!

    This is a lovely and fascinating cookbook, filled with some excellent recipes of very high caliber. I received it for my recent birthday after someone made an orange marmalade cake from it (and the Mitford series of books by the same author.) I was impressed that even though the dishes themselves are recognizably American and non-fussy, they appear to have been collected with the utmost of care and concern. I don't buy many cookbooks any longer but this one is a welcome addition...if only for th This is a lovely and fascinating cookbook, filled with some excellent recipes of very high caliber.

    I just loved this cookbook. Having read all Jan Karon's books it was such a delight to receive this as a gift. My friend truly hit a high mark in my book when she found this book. I was just so happy. I also love to cook so this was a true gift to share these recipes with friends and family. So far the Orange Marmalade cake, Orange mandarin salad and the coconut cake have been great. I can't wait to make the biscuits, raspberry tea and cucumber salads next.

    If you get involved with the Mitford Series by this author you will inevitably want to try to make some of the foods described in the books. The only recipe ever published in any of the novels was the "famous Orange Marmalade Cake" but with the cook book you have many more choices as well as a delightful visit with the author. I received this book from my Mother for Christmas a few years ago and loaned it to her shortly after but I'm yet to get it back!
