Nostalgia has always been a part of cooking, with cooks everywhere trying to recreate the smells and tastes of their home and youth. Lydia Gurney's 1912 "Things Mother Used to Make" has this sense of nostalgia at its heart. A native New Englander, the recipes have a bit of a New England leaning, but anyone craving honest-to-goodness American cooking will find a treasure trove of recipes in this volume.
