Chicken Soup for the Soul Food and LoveStars: ★★★★★

Summary: Our best memories often revolved around food. And so do our best stories! We’ve put together a heart-warming and mouth-watering collection of stories that will make you laugh, make you cry, and inspire you inside and outside the kitchen. Whether you are reading about funny cooking disasters, holiday traditions, life lessons, or revealing personal anecdotes, you’ll want to try the special recipes inside the book and you’ll be inspired to spend some quality time with family and friends… in the kitchen!

I love Chicken Soup for the Soul, have I mentioned that? I’ve read other books with personal stories but they just aren’t the same.

CSS: Food & Love is a celebration of food, family and friends and even includes a few recipes!

The stories are separated into chapters based on subject matter as follows:

  • Learning to Cook
  • Just Like Mom’s
  • Table for Two
  • Comfort Food
  • Little Helpers
  • In Memory Of…
  • A Bite of Fun
  • The Taste of Tradition
  • Life Lessons in the Kitchen
  • Always Room for Dessert

I counted 23 recipes although I may be off by one or two. The thing is, they are recipes I want to try. They sound really delicious and I can’t wait to try many of them.

I actually did try one.. Potato Croquettes (pg 276) and they were really good! I think I made them a bit big and I changed it up a bit as I usually do (I’m a Creative Cook) but I will definitely make them again.

The stories themselves were great as well. I enjoyed all of them. It’s amazing what an impact something as everyday as food can have on our lives.
