When Sherry Phillips Mitchell and her sister, Debbie, were transplanted to a farm in Buford, Ohio, in 1962, it changed the course of Sherrys life forever. In a charming collection, Sherry shares farmhouse remembrances and comforting recipes that retell of not only lifes greatest lessons, but also all the reasons why the kitchen is the heart of every farm.
Sherrys anecdotes provide a glimpse into what life is really like on a farm where neighbors become like family and life lessons come in all forms and places. In true tales of adventure and misadventure, Sherry entertainingly details such moments as the hatching of baby chicks, a family day spent picking strawberries, an unexpected bumblebee attack, night scares driven by active imaginations, and a tragic moment in a hay field. Included are cherished family recipes like Cast Iron Cornbread, Strawberry Pretzel Salad, Bread Pudding, Daddys Sticky Buns, and Old Fashioned Potato Candy.
My Farmhouse Journal shares remembrances and recipes that reflect on a time when simplicity formed the backdrop for a life of learning on the farm.
