With Staff Picks, we would like to offer recommendations from our staff to you. These picks will be from a variety of reading, listening or viewing tastes. You might find stuff you've checked out before, or you might be intrigued enough to find a new favorite.

The Family Affair Cookbook by Kathy Garver

This cookbook was written by Kathy Garver who played Cissy on the TV show Family Affair in the 1970’s. Don’t remember the show? That’s okay, the book is has some stories about the old show and cast members as well as pictures but it is mostly about the old yet now new again recipes from the show. Recipes from breakfast to snacks, main dishes to drinks to flaming desserts including 21st century heathier updates.

Ever heard of Oysters Rockefeller, Clams Casino, Steak Diane, Steak Tartar, Coq au Vin, Beef Wellington, or Pheasant Under Glass?

Or the drinks: Sidecar, Highball, Gimlet, Tom Collins, Manhattan?

Or how about some flaming Cherries Jubilee?

Try some of the recipes in this book at your next party or your family.

If this book interests you, feel free to request and check it out. We'll be back next Wednesday with a different Staff Pick.
