I admit that I have a special place in my heart for the stars who graced my television as a young child, the likes of Debbie Reynolds, Dick Clark, James Garner, Stefanie Powers and more. When I reflect on those days, I never really thought about them 'whipping up' something in the kitchen. They seemed far removed from my every day world.

This cookbook is a collection of their favorites, what dish their mothers or grandmothers prepared that they hold near and dear to their heart. The first thing that struck me is that the recipes are mostly of simpler foods. I think I was expecting foie gras and truffles, I'm chuckling as I think about this. The paparazzi machine always showed us their high life complete with ultra expensive restaurants. I wasn't expecting quiche, corn puddin' or cucumber salads. It provides a lens into the relaxed side of these well-known personalities. I love it!

Legends in the Kitchen: Celebrity Recipes for a Cause, compiled by Mrs. Howard Keel & Linda F. Radke, is a fun, down to earth cookbook with recipes from some of my favorite stars down through the years. This cookbook really took me back in the day, featuring stars I remember from my childhood; we watched a lot of older movies and shows with stars like Debbie Reynolds, Stefanie Powers, Betty White, James Garner, Dick Clark, Burt Reynolds, Andy Williams, etc...If you’re looking for a cookbook that’s slightly different and lighthearted….one that is relaxing to look through….I definitely recommend Legends in the Kitchen.
