What more could a woman ask for (except for shoes maybe) than to read a great book of memories that will make you life and think of your own childhood and be filled with great recipes to top it all off. Kathleen Flinn has released her second book, Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good A Memoir of Food & Love from an American Midwest Family, if you fell in love with her first best selling memoir, The Sharper Your Knife,the Less You Cry, your gonna love this one even more.

In this family history interwoven with recipes, Kathleen Flinn returns readers to the mix of food and memoir beloved by readers of her bestselling The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry. Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good explores the very beginnings of her love affair with food and its connection to home. It is the story of her Midwestern childhood, its memorable home cooks, and the delicious recipes she grew up with. Flinn shares tales of her parents’ pizza parlor in San Francisco, where they sold Uncle Clarence’s popular oven-fried chicken, as well as recipes for the vats of chili made by her former army cook Grandpa Charles, fluffy Swedish pancakes from Grandma Inez, and cinnamon rolls for birthday breakfasts. Through these dishes, Flinn came to understand how meals can be memories, and how cooking can be a form of communication. Brimming with warmth and wit, this book is sure to appeal to Flinn’s many fans as well as readers of Marcus Samuelsson, Ruth Reichl, and Julie Powell.

I truly enjoyed reading Burnt Toast Make You Sing Good, Kathleen has taken some nice stories about her growing up years and threw in some recipes to along with each chapter and story. Truly entertaining. If you know someone who loves to cook and read they will truly enjoy this book. Even if you don't like to cook, you'll enjoy this book.
