The Church Ladies' Celestial Suppers & Sensible AdviceBook - 2004
Whether the organ needs polishing, the choir's robes need hemming, or the youth mixer needs chaperoning, you can count on a Church Lady to do the job. She bustles about the sanctuary, dispensing one-liner wisdom like the peppermints she slips to church children. But among her most appreciated talents is her cooking. Just make sure you sit up straight, say grace, and keep your elbows off the table... Brenda Rhodes Miller, author of The Church Ladies' Divine Desserts, returns with recipes and recommendations collected from Black churches across the country, for all courses and for every occasion. You'll love The-Pastor's-in-Trouble Meatloaf-and the story of how it got its name. There are four separate recipes for deviled eggs-and one for something called Holy Ghost Party Meatballs. And what better way to celebrate a truly special occasion than the Wedding Punch with Frozen Sugared Rose Petals? Here are more than 200 recipes for everything from salads to sides to seafood-all lovingly made from scratch. Book jacket.
