In more than fifty years of broadcasting from the Twin Cities WCCO, Joyce Lamont shared countless recipes, household tips, travel notes, and homey anecdotes with her audience. In the process she became one of the best-loved cooks, household helpers, and radio personalities in the Midwest–and a virtual member of the family for millions of listeners.

This book collects 300 recipes from Joyce Lamonts kitchen–all of them well tested over time by her vast and devoted audience. Characteristically simple, well-seasoned, delicious, family-friendly, and reliable, these recipes are the essence of comfort food. Each week WCCOs "Best Buys" guided homemakers to the foods that were in season, at peak quality, and reasonably priced. Just so, this book follows the calendar, directing readers to the freshest ingredients available throughout the year and making the most of these in recipes that celebrate the seasons plenty.

Sweetened and spiced throughout with Ms. Lamonts reminiscences of radio personalities and on-air antics, these recipes invite us back into one of the warmest and most welcoming kitchens ever to serve such a close, extended family. And as a bonus the book includes a collection of Ms. Lamonts household hints–tips that range from drying gourds for decoration to the best way to open a stubborn jar–suggestions that are as trustworthy and timeless as the recipes they accompany.
