These savory, down-to-earth meals are at the heart of some of Valerie Barber’s fondest memories of sharing wonderful food, laughter and conversation with her loved ones. Many of the recipes have been passed down through the generations.
They are simple, delicious recipes that are geared toward family meals. From retro appetizers like deviled eggs through main dishes, sides, and desserts, there is something here for everyone. Seafood lovers will devour the Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab and Lobster Tails Stuffed with Crabmeat. For those with a sweet tooth, Valerie’s Rum Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies are simply the best! For lunch or dinner there are classics such as Hamburgers, Meatloaf and Pot Roast. For the more adventurous cook there is Curried Chicken or Roasted Leg of Lamb
