Recipes for Life

Description: In Recipes for Life, Linda opens up her heart, her past, and her kitchen. She shares a revealing assortment of anecdotes (magical moments mised with painful ones), photographs, and recipes enjoyed by Linda and those near and dear to her. Linda touches upon growing up, family ties, her incredible life in Hollywood, the friends she has made, and provides an intimate glimpse into her high-profile romances. At the heart of this memorable, touching, and inspiring story is how all of these ingredients have come together to make Linda the woman she is today.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s a combination of a memoir and a cookbook.
Linda Evans has spent decades in the public eye. She has skillfully remained classy and poised in an environment where many crack under the pressure. She’s had her ups and downs just like anyone and seems like a truly warm woman.
The recipes flow right along with the text of her story. Cooking and enjoying food with friends and family are a part of her life, so it all fits together.
Many of the recipes are simple and use ingredients that I regularly have on hand. There are comfort foods that are easy to prepare for a family meal or for guests.
Here are a few that I plan to try:
- Peach Heaven
- Warm Butternut Sqaush Salad
- Duke’s Crab Dip
- Dynasty Corn Pudding
- Chocolate Souffle Pudding
You’ll recognize many familiar names throughout the book and the recipes. There are color photos throughout the book that go along with her stories.
Recipes for life is a fun book for fans and people who like to cook!
