Chicken and Egg: a charming read with recipes

August 5, 2011 | By andrea | Filed in: From My Bookshelf, Morsels & Musings, Recipes.

I recently read the most charming memoir/cookbook about raising chickens for the sole purpose of having your own fresh eggs. Chicken and Egg: A Memoir of Suburban Homesteading with 125 Recipes by Janice Cole is a must-read for anyone who has ever considered raising chickens or is simply enamored with the idea of it. The author tells her delightful journey of raising a few chickens in her backyard in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota. We’re talking urban chickens here…not a farm.

The delicious chicken and egg recipes are a complete bonus, too! Dishes like: Morning Eggs on Mushroom-Bacon Hash, Chicken and Vegetable Stew over Parmesan Polenta, Cheddar Dill Chicken Cobbler, Holiday Roast Chicken with Cranberry-Fig Stuffing, Pumpkin Spice Cake with Salted Caramel Sauce, Bittersweet Fudge Pound Cake, and many more wonderful recipes that feature chicken and eggs.
