About the book: Home is where good things happen--and for the Romney family, the heart of the home is the kitchen. In The Romney Family Table, Ann Romney, wife of former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, reflects on her many years as a mom, shares family recipes, and describes some of her favorite and not-so-favorite moments of raising a family. Woven together with personal memories and traditions are Romney family favorite recipes such as Peppered Pork Chops with Peach-Vinegar Glaze, Welsh Skillet Cakes, Honey Wheat Bread (which Ann made regularly for five growing sons), and Mimi’s Buttermilk Pancakes, which she and Mitt shared with their Secret Service detail at the end of his presidential campaign.
This unique blend of heartwarming and humorous stories told in Ann’s warm, welcoming style, candid family photos spanning four decades, and more than 125 fabulous recipes will inspire your own traditions and family dinners for years to come.
My Review: This is an amazing book! I love the family pictures and stories that Ann Romney shares from her early years, and life with Mitt Romney and family. I love how all of the chapters have a recipe that relates to the story she tells in it. Ann Romney tells about their lives in a way that you feel as though they live down the street from them and they are some of your dearest friends. I especially liked reading about how they spend family time at the lake with their kids and grandkids. So fun! The recipes look amazing, I've already planned several that I will be making sooner than later. You won't regret picking up this fun book!
