Our customer reviews

This book is more than just a cookbook! It is about gathering families together...around the table :) This book gives us insight into the Mitt and Ann Romney family and how they have gathered around the table on special days, Sundays, and holidays. Ann talks about her family including stories about being around the kitchen counter with her mom, how it was to raise five boys, and making it a priority to spend time as a family. My favorite story in this section is the day she had come home to find that her baby had had a heyday in the Fluff jar...there is a really fun picture of Fluff all over this child's face, hands, and clothes. She also talks about the traditions they have as a family such as keeping her Welsh heritage alive, birthday celebrations, and summer vacations. One of the stories you will read in this section is about the year Mitt's dad, George Romney, traveled to the home of each of his grandchildren on their birthday and cooked their favorite meal for them...and he was in his eighties...wow! And we get to read about their holiday traditions of Easter, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Ann shares with us her love of the Fourth of July, from the family picnic, to the fireworks, to the parade held in Wolfeboro with its lawn-chair brigade...fun story! And did you notice the picture on the front of the cover with the children eating the watermelon...this is just one of the activities the Romney family does in their summer "Romney Olympics" tradition. Filled with almost 100 pictures of the family...including parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren. And well over 100 recipes... This book is truly a wonderful gift from the Romney family table to your family table.show more
