Local family publishes cookbook

Submitted By Sue Rewerts

Susan T. Ramie has been blessed with a family full of great heirloom cooks and is selling cookbooks to pay homage to them all.

Made up of grandmother Harriet, mother Eleanor, aunt Doris and great-aunt Reba, this family of wonderful cooks inspired Susan to create "Regional Homestyle Cooking," a cookbook featuring a collection over 100 tried-and-true recipes submitted by members of the Ramie, Tallman, and Trueblood families.

Susan has a passion for home-style cooking as well as for updating and writing recipes. Collected from wooden recipe card holders, metal index card boxes, hand-written bits and pieces of recipes and recipes of her own creation, the recipes in her cookbook have been tested, tasted, and cherished.

One highlight from the cookbook is the recipe for Poor Man's Chowder. It is easy and inexpensive to prepare, making it a favorite in many American homes today. Another is for President Nixon's Meat Loaf since Susan's Aunt Reba was a faithful Republican and had a fascination for former President Richard Nixon.

According to Susan, "I had a great time recording my heirloom family recipes and wanted to share it with the public. Creating and publishing this cookbook with G&R Publishing was a labor of love for me."

She went on to say, "G&R made my work easy with their online template for writing recipes. They were extremely polite and professional, and I would highly recommend them."

The spiral-bound cookbook can be purchased for only $5.95 each plus shipping and handling by contacting Susan at (510) 791-6842 or by e-mail at
