From pp. 150-151: "A Final Thought On Gravy From Nancy: ... But I guess maybe in the back of my mind I always knew that gravy was the benefits of sewing seed and gathering the harvest... or taking a piece of material and making a dress or shirt that I didn't have to buy... or helping a neighbor and they gave you something in return... or praying to God and having it answered... or raising your own worms and going fishing and catching a lot of fish to feed the family...or taking food to a neighbor and just hearing a big 'thank you'... or working 5 days a week and getting a paycheck at the end of the week to pay your bills... or taking a day off and taking a neighbor to the doctor... and God blessed you for it... or going to church and being able to pray...There are lots of ways to make gravy. Like smiling at someone and they smile back. Yes, gravy has always been around and there has been a lot of gravy in my life...."

Professional Reviews

From Eddie Thompson
Author and Pastor Eddie Thompson wrote in "Daily Bread", a church publication, the following: "As a writer, I have made recommendations and critiques of new books along the way. I've never done a book recommendation on the Daily Bread, though. I have stumbled across a most amazing book. I simply must recommend it to you. The funny thing is, never in my life have I recommended a cook book. Yes, you heard that right. A cook book! If you haven't gotten a copy of 'How Mama Made Gravy From An Old Flat Tire...' you are truly missing out. It's much more than a collection of recipes. I've been blessed countless times reading it already. It's all the extras, the gravy, that spices up this book. The best thing about it is it's written by a member of our church, Jean Reeves, about her Mom, Nancy Sharp, and Nancy's recipes, comments, quips, and beautiful spirit. Jean has outdone herself with this book. It's spiritual content alone is worth the read. The recipes are absolutely awesome!..."

Southern recipes to die for, along with wonderful home-spun humor and common sense, make this not your ordinary cookbook. I highly recommend this addition to your kitchen library, and a wonderful gift for friends and family.
