I love Chicken Soup for the Soul books. I so far have read 2 other of the book and now this one. I love the short stories in this one and there are some recipes in it that I really want to try out.

Some stories are funny and some are sad but a lot of the stories you can relate to. This is a must read.

HASH(0xa408d660) out of 5 stars Like a plate of Comfort Food Nov. 23 2011
By Gina Schild - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This latest edition of the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series focuses on Food and Love, two things that are often intermingled. The stories in this book range from those of newlyweds just learning to cook, to children helping in the kitchen, to foods and recipes that are made in memory of a loved one who has passed away. This is a perfect book to get to read if you only have short snippets of time (such as waiting at the doctor's office or on going on a flight) as most of the stories are only 3 pages long. This book makes an ideal gift for Food Lovers, cooks and anyone who enjoys uplifting and inspiring stories. There are even recipes included, should you feel inspired to replicate some of the dishes in the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs a comforting read this holiday season.

HASH(0xa409a8ac) out of 5 stars Recipes were Included!!! Feb. 14 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you EAT, you have to love this book. There are no smells, but the stories will stir up memories and bake your senses. Without frying your brain, you will toast the writers who have sauteed their stories into FOOD bliss! Can you tell this is another of my favorites? Not quite as good as Chicken Soup's INSPIRATION FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART, (my all time favorite) but it sure comes close.

HASH(0xa4a6fa14) out of 5 stars Even for those folks that can't me Oct. 17 2014
By TheSteadyHand - Published on
Format: Paperback
I received this book for free in return for my honest review.

As a person that doesn't cook a lot or very well this book is my new inspiration. Each story I read showed me that I am not alone. Cooking is not rocket science. It doesn't matter if what you make consists of 5 ingredients or 25, you are still cooking. As long as it tastes good you are a good cook. I like that recipes are also included. Easy recipes that even I want to attempt! But the book is not just about food it is about what food can do...bring people together. Food is something everyone can relate to. We all need it and no matter how hard you try you will always gravitate towards it, especially that dessert. In all honesty, the stories are entertaining and funny. I had to read a couple of them out loud to my husband because they were so funny. I couldn't keep the giggles to myself. Definitely a book to keep on hand and would also be a great gift for any food lover (or person that doesn't like to cook)!
HASH(0xa4048ae0) out of 5 stars CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL: Food and Love July 7 2012
By Cyrus Webb - Published on
Format: Paperback
There is something about food that not only connects you to those you care about but is a great conversation piece when it seems you can't find the right words to say. In this Chicken Soup for the Soul installment you get a bit of both worlds.

The contributors share how they were able to create dialogue in the kitchen or were able to use food as a way of bringing people together and bringing each other together. I smiled at the story where the mother used "magic" in the kitchen to get her daughter to eat. And then there is the account of the husband who was able to use the simple act of preparing a meal to show how much he appreciated what his wife had been doing for him and the rest of the family.

Regardless how you slice it (smile), FOOD AND LOVE do seem to go hand in hand. I know every time I am able to prepare a meal for my grandmother or a family event it always makes it taste better when you include a piece of yourself into the recipe. Speaking of recipes, you'll find some of them as well. Just make sure that you don't forget the most important ingredient in everything you bring to the table: LOVE.
