This great big collection of recipes, straight from America’s heartland, dishes up classic down-home goodness, from super sweet spare ribs to cherry-delight pie.

America’s Hometown Recipe Book gathers together 712 delicious, beloved, and tried-and-true recipes that have been served up at churches and state fairs across the nation, from Catawissa, Pennsylvania, to Tuscola, Texas, to Carlsbad, California. Culled from Black Dog’s three successful books Church Suppers, Church Socials, and Blue Ribbon Recipes, the recipes included here represent the very best of the best that hometown America has to offer. From breakfasts to desserts, these recipes have been served to hungry crowds, both large and small, for generations.

The reviews are always raves and many of these dishes have garnered blue ribbons. Organized by type of food, chapters include Breakfast; Brunch; Appetizers; Soups and Sandwiches; Poultry and Game; Meat; Fish; Vegetables; Breads, Rolls, and Biscuits; Preserves; Pies, Cookies, and Cakes. You’ll find lip-smacking recipes such as Easy Cheesy-Chile Bean Tomales, Spinach Cheese Squares, Lizzie's Crab Casserole, Vidalia Onions au Gratin, Green Veggie Frittata, Lemon Chiffon Torte, Peanut Butter Fudge, Jalepeño Jelly, and hundreds more.

Packaged in a spiral binder that has a pocket on the front cover for keeping recipe clippings, America’s Hometown Recipe Book also includes 12 blank recipe cards to fill out and give to friends, family, and neighbors.
