Maybe you can still see it clearly. Your mother, with an apron draped over her Sunday best, standing at the stove, tending to the bubbling pots, sneaking a taste from each one. Somewhere in this memory, you hear the doorbell ring, ushering in aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends from church, all enveloped in the aromas of Sunday dinnera pot roast in the oven, warm homemade rolls in a basket on the table, a coconut cake cooling on the counter. Wouldn't you like to go back there?

Theresa5 Stars Out Of 5Make Sunday Dinners part of your tradition!November 28, 2012TheresaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Return to Sunday Dinner" is a fantastic book. I was fascinated with the concept of a "traditional" Sunday dinner and enjoyed all the stories of how others celebrated their Sunday gatherings. To take the time and care of laying out a fancy table was a novel idea to me, but sounded like so many others did as a normal routine in years past. The shared stories of how things were done are in themselves a delight to read, and the recipes range from the simple and delicious to a bit more extravagant - but all very doable.
I loved reading all the stories and found that I wanted to start my own Sunday traditions after reading this book, however, the children are off to college, so I don't know if it will be too late to start now or not. We'll try it when they come home for winter and summer breaks.
The recipes are delicious and the the best part is that there are do-ahead hints and tips, so it makes the dinners easier to make on a schedule without feeling overwhelmed. The Coconut Cream Cake is a must and make sure to try Grandma's Fried Chicken!
This is a wonderful book to add to any kitchen library, but even more wonderful is the tradition that goes along with this book. If you are like me and didn't have a traditional Sunday dinner, make sure to pick this book up and start your own traditional Sunday meal. If you are already doing the traditional Sunday meal, you'll want to read this and add some new ideas and meals to your existing menus.
I received this book through the Booksneeze program. I was not required to write a positive review, but instead, one that gives my honest opinion.
threedifferentAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5menues suitable for varying occasionsOctober 7, 2012threedifferentAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I'm not sure if we'll ever actually have "Sunday Dinner" per say in our home, but I have enjoyed reading traditions and perusing the recipes out of Russell Cronkhite's new book "Return to Sunday Dinner."
I've made a few of the recipes already including the "Family Favorite Meatloaf with Brown Sugar Glaze", the "Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket" and the "Baked Apples with Walnuts and Cream."
The book is divided into 24 different chapters, each creating a menu suitable for varying occasions, and it is filled with beautiful pictures of the recipes.
Some of the recipes are very unique, and others, to me, require a lot more work than I would generally do, but there are tips at the end of each chapter that will allow you, in the hustle and bustle of life, to get Sunday Dinner on the table by preparing some of the items ahead of time.
This recipe book is a bit 'magical' in nature, but I don't think you'll recognize that until you pick it up yourself and it takes you back in time to the Sunday Dinners of your childhood, and you recognize comfort foods of days gone by that have your mouth salivating by the remembrance of them, and peaked interest in making some new recipes that you have not yet tried.
The publisher provided you me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneezeÃÂ®. All opinions are my own.
Rednexx GirlTexasAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Recipes & High QualitySeptember 29, 2012Rednexx GirlTexasAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was able to review this book before it was available to the masses. "Return To Sunday Dinner" by Russell Cronkhite, is not only a beautifully crafted book, it contains many tasty recipes that would be a pleasure to serve both family & friends.
Here is a glimpse of the table of contents. Here you will find many wonderful ideas for your meal time gathering. I love the 'Easy Time Saving & Do Ahead Tips' that are listed at the end of each chapter section.
The book is printed in such high quality work as well as beautiful photos, that I would rank it right up there with such books as the William Sonoma cookbooks. However, I must admit, personally, I find Return To Sunday Dinner to hold much tastier, pantry friendly recipes that don't take a lot of time to prepare.
