Do you hear it? The sound of the Internet buzzing with talks of the new book by the lovely Teri Edwards and Serena Thompson founders of The Farm Chicks Antique Show. We've mentioned their fantastic show quite a few times here on Vintage Indie and today we are happy to announce their book launch!
I was lucky enough to have received a preview copy of The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen. Live Well, Laugh Often Cook Much, sounds like a way of life to me. That's why I loved this book, it's wholesome, true to life while making your mouth water all at the same time.
With each turn of the page you get invited into the life of these courageous entrepreneurial women. You'll get a sneak peek of Serena's story while learning about her childhood. My favorite from Serena's own words, " The fact that I baked from scratch was a detail that my dad wore like a crown high on his head. He'd say, "My daughter baked this" He'd pause briefly, and then add "and it's from scratch!" It doesn't stop there, you'll be introduced to Teri a few pages later and feel that same since of warmth from her story as she tells a heartfelt childhood memory all having to do with turquoise icing.
As you dig deeper into the book you'll come across those scrumptious recipes I mentioned earlier like Cherry Breakfast Swirl, Brown Sugar Bacon Bites, Enchilada Soup and Peach Huckleberry Lattice Pie just to name a few. The icing on the cake comes at a sweet surprise when you discover the crafty diy projects and how-tos nestled in between the chapters. Although my preview copy was in black and white I can only imagine what the color version (releasing in April) will be like. I truly enjoyed this book as it is so much more than a collection of recipes but an inspiration of what you can do if you truly set your mind to it.
