Mar 7, 2012Thank you , for sending the cook book i found alot of recipes that i wanted to try and with easter comming up i food the easter cake i wanted to try to make. Thank's again Joann Mancuso
Feb 7, 2012I was lucky enough to see this wonderful book of recipes mentioned on Facebook and through some research found it online. I am a native CNYer, have moved to Texas and although I do get back home a couple times a year, I still miss all the wonderful foods my husband and I grew up on. There are no riggies in Texas and no one has even heard of tomoato pie! Thank you so much to Joe, Jeanann and all the other contributors. I will be using this book a lot and so look forward to creating the comfort foods of home. P.H.
Dec 18, 2011This cookbook has so many delicious recipes that I remember from my childhood. Everyone one of them evokes a memory or two. And the little stories bring to mind things long forgotten. It's a joy to read and cook from. I lived in East Utica so learned to cook Italian before I learned to fry an egg. My teachers were women and men who understood a balance of ingredients and flavors. They cooked like the TV chef's do now, without exact measurments. A recipe is NOT a chemical formula. Making a dish is an art. Bravo!!
Oct 5, 2011Just bought the cookbook. Very disappointed. Many of the recipes don't even list all the ingredients - you just stumble upon them in the course of the cooking instructions (page 129 i.e.). Many of the recipes don't even list the measurements of each ingredient (pages 27, 141, i.e.). Hard to believe the authors would lend their names to such mistakes and print the book anyway.
Jul 29, 2011I am having so much fun with this book. It is a blast from the past! Food you can't get here and nobody has even heard of. I am ordering another copy today and probably in the near future as a Christmas gift. I actually know some of the people blogging. Thank you for the great recipes I have missed for so long. _pe
Dec 6, 2010I've been working my way through every recipe in the Taste of Utica book. Everyone of them has been AMAZING! There is nothing better than home town recipes: those recipes we grew up with, that bring us back to our childhood, and rekindle the warmest of memories. Cook along with me. Let me know if you have tried one of the recipes. All recipes and photos can be found at www.applecrumbles.com and are posted almost every Sunday. I'd love to read your reviews!

Feb 27, 2009"Jeanann Murphy is an artist with her cookbooks..." Although I'm not connected to Utica area, I will be ordering this Cookbook. I have a copy of Ms Murphy's personal family cookbook, and have collaborated with her on a cookbook for the OurCountryHaven web community. Because of these experiences, I know first hand that delightful things can be expected from anything she produces. Jeanann's cookbooks are warm, inviting, creative, and extremely well done. As someone who loves to cook, her recipes are well presented, and easy to read. Her heart and soul goes into everything Jeanann does, so expect a book that will be treasured... as a collector's item, a special gift brimming with tender loving care, as well as an inspiring and useful cookbook in every kitchen. I can hardly wait to see the magic she has brought to the pages of 'A taste of Utica'. Ms Bj Kennedy, 'CountryLady' http://OurCountryHaven.com
