Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line of laughter. The female side of her family tree is dotted with funny storytellers, prolific authors, hospitable home cooks, and champion chatters.
In We Love, We Laugh, We Cook, Becky―a butter and bacon loving mama―and Rachel―a vegan bean eating daughter―share stories of their crazy, wonderful, and sometimes challenging lives as Rachel becomes a mother herself.
Becky is messy; Rachel craves order. Becky forgets what month it is; Rachel is an organizational genius. (At least before baby arrives.) Sprinkled throughout are the lip-smacking, nourishing recipes they love to make and share.
From food for a family reunion of thirty, to lunch for a party of one in a high chair, to a hot meal for a sick friend, the authors demonstrate grace, acceptance, and love to others through the bonding gifts of humor, attentive listening, and cooking … whether diners prefer beef or tofu in their stew.
I’m not much of a chef but this book made me want to cook! We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook reads easy, but is packed with thoughtful insights about family life around the table. This mother and daughter team prove in their writing that although their personalities and culinary practices may vary from each other, they share an appreciation for amazing food and authentic relationships. I especially liked hearing about Randolph’s transformation to a vegan kitchen, and about Johnson’s zest for life and the people she loved. At the end of each chapter, the authors share the recipes of the dishes described. Fun! If you like cooking memoirs, or if you just want your heart warmed, this book is for you.
