As I’ve said before, I don’t normally do a lot of book reviews but when given the chance to read We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook I really wanted to read it. It is written by a Mother and daughter, Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph. Anything a Mother and daughter do together tugs at my heart, so I wanted to check it out.
I’m glad I did. We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook was really funny. I laughed so hard at some of the stories. Johnson had her chance to tell her side of situation and then Randolph would give her take on it. At the end of each chapter recipes were listed went along with the story.
I think that I feel that these stories are so funny because I completely relate to Johnson’s way of life. I’m not an organizer or a cleaner. I’m hoping that Gracie’s form of teenage rebellion is organization too, although I really doubt it. I’m betting were going to be two of a kind. Which is totally fine with me!
I loved it in the book where Johnson quotes Nigel Slater “It’s impossible not to love someone who makes toast for you.” I make Gracie toast almost every night for a snack each night. That made me feel so GOOD! We love our toast each night. It’s our special time. Sometimes it is just plain toast, sometimes it is cinnamon toast, sometimes it is garlic toast. No matter which one, we enjoy it and love ending our day with a good piece of toast.
As I mentioned before, each chapter ends with recipes. A lot of these Gracie would not eat. I did find one though that she would, Momma’s Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Meatloaves. I don’t think she has ever eat meatloaf before yesterday. She really enjoyed it all except for the sauce on top. She scraped it off and enjoyed the bottom, which is the meatloaf! I don’t mind if she doesn’t eat the sauce.
