  Yummmm.... The Tea Cake Roundup is a MUST HAVE!!! , 08/05/2009
Reviewer: Marianne Leclerc
I loved reading the book... smiled the whole time. Its a good-time read... a real "pick me up"... worth the price for the stories alone. But... I've just made my first batch of Aunt Maggie's Resurrected Tea Cake Recipe... and man oh man... are these GOOD! I ended up with double the number of cookies, so I'll make them thicker next time. Within 5 min 1/2 the cookies were gone when two pre-teens and my husband ran by the oven on the way out the door. I think I'll be making these again real soon and checking out the other recipe variations. You won't regret buying this book.

  Treasury of Recipes and Memories , 11/30/2012
Reviewer: Kelly Starling Lyons
Who knew there were so many ways to make tea cakes? Lovingly created by Elbert Mackey, The Tea Cake Roundup is a treasury of tea cake recipes and memories from around the country that salute the beauty of family and tradition. As I read the book, I was entranced and taken right back to my grandma's kitchen where she turned simple ingredients into melt-in-your mouth magic. That power to transport people is just part of the book's charm. Mackey reminds us that tea cakes are more than desserts, they're touchstones that connect generations and celebrate culture. The Tea Cake Roundup is a special gift that should be shared and passed down. Comment |
