  1. I ll have to reread it to be sure, but I would argue that Bracken is not here being mean spirited , as I saw one of the other reviewers called her in A Window over the Sink Or rather she s not being any mean spirited than she was in any of her other booksd yes, she did write things other than I Hate to Cook Book Which itself was, in tone, quite like this not mean but perhaps a bit sardonic And for those who don t like to hear authors true voices, for heaven s sake DON T read Betty MacDonald s a [...]




  2. Peg Bracken was the forerunner of Erma Bombeck Both were humor columnists that my mom read while I was growing up This book takes me back to my childhood, even though it was written about my parents era growing up Peg Bracken is funny and writes well, but I suspect most people under 45 would find it hard to relate to her It s a great period piece, though.


  3. I found this discarded library book at Goodwill and decided it would be maybe fun and interesting to read The author, Peg Bracken has written several other books, the most widely known probably The I Hate to Cook Book A Window Over a Sink, I assume was written in her later years as it hints at her being a young adult during WWII This book was copyright 1981.I like her style She writes with plenty of humor and a dash of self depreciation I tend to do that too when I write This is a memoir of sort [...]


  4. While few of my generation probably know the name Peg Bracken, those who do think of her as a cookbook author To me she is iconic, and way ahead of her time for the early 60s Consider the occasional writer today who comes forward and expresses her ambivalence about having children, or brave women who confess in blogs that becoming a mother hasn t been all sunshine and roses Bracken did something similar she was among the first to publicly say being a housewife cook, housekeeper, and indentured s [...]


  5. 3.5 A memoir based around the author s kitchen renovation, and the memories that can come through while looking out through the window over the sink The renovation bits were so funny Uwe was a dream, ha The recipes were fun, too I liked her wit and humor, but she was a little mean spirited and there was so much about the old days were better but based on her stories, boy were they not.


  6. This book was hard for me to get into, but I enjoyed reading it whenever I picked it up Peg Bracken writes like the witty tell it like it is aunt, a tone I really appreciated, even if the conversational nature of the book made it hard to really get hooked in.


  7. I enjoy Peg Braken s writing style She is funny and entertaining as she relays bits and pieces of her life However, she wanders from subject to subject in a way that feels choppy, rather than cohesive I never felt that way about other books of hers.


  8. A collection of reminiscences about coming of age in a small midwestern town, each loosely linked to something domestic, like a particular meal or housekeeping habit Light and cozy I kept it by my bed and read it when other books seemed too demanding.


  9. More mean spirited than I remember Bracken being I almost gave up on it but decided to persevere and am glad I did, because it ended up giving me an interesting glimpse into women s lives in recent history in America I enjoy discovering how we have and haven t changed.




  10. This was kind of like visiting with Erma Bombeck s older but wiser sister Pleasant enough, but I prefer her I Hate to Cook book series.


  11. I had forgotten about Peg Bracken until I saw this book at a used book sale Her The I Hate to Cook Book was a favorite of mine years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed her sharp wit and honesty here.


  12. I really like Peg Bracken She has a bit of a quirky sense of humor and writing style that makes you feel like you re talking with a friend.


  13. It s taking me a while to get through this, but it s kind of charming There are fun stories and even a few recipes the author shares.



  14. This was interesting in many ways, but not as good as I wanted it to be I m glad I read it and will happily pass it along to a friend.
