Chickens in the Road by Suzanne McMinn
This is one book that could fall under so many genres when listing it.
I discovered it listed under cookbooks and was immediately drawn to the cover and synopsis. What I found inside wasn’t exactly what I had expected, but so much more.
While there are tantalizing recipes for such dishes as Summer Vegetable Pie and Apple Dumplings, author Suzanne McMinn offers up much more. She includes helpful hints and DIY craft projects such as beeswax lip balm and soap recipes.
The most intriguing part of the book, however, is McMinn’s journey from romance writer to farmer. She tells how she packed up and moved her family to Stringtown Rising Farm, a place that didn’t even have a road to it.
McMinn describes the journey in vivid detail. She includes a good dose of humor with the difficult and good times giving readers an inside look at how life was for her. An added bonus is numerous color photos depicting her life during this transformation.
Throughout the book, McMinn shares the good and the bad elements of her decision to move. While ill prepared at times, she faced the daily ups and downs with strength, determination and a sense of humor.
CHICKENS IN THE ROAD is an inspiring book of tackling one’s dreams and visions with wit, determination, and persistence. This is one cookbook that will have you laughing as you try out the tasty recipes and fun crafts.
