Cherries in Winter by Suzan Colon

I just finished reading this book and to sum it up in one word I would say delightful. It makes you appreciate that recession layoffs can hit ANY family at ANY time, and that when they do they can hit hard. But it also makes you realise that sometimes simple is good, and that maybe because we’re so darn busy we just don’t see it…


When Suzan Colon was laid off from her dream job at a national magazine, she needed to cut her budget, and fast. That meant dusting off her Grandmother Matilda’s old recipe folder and learning how to cook cheaply and simply. But Suzan found more than just amazing recipes-she found a new appreciation for the strong women in her family and the key to their survival through hard times. Full of heart, ‘Cherries in Winter’ is an irresistible gem of a book. It makes you want to cook, it makes you want to know your own family’s stories, and, above all, it makes you feel rich no matter what.
