Overview

Whether you’re entertaining garden sprites, feeding a regiment of toy soldiers, or simply whiling away a lazy afternoon, Mud Pies and Other Recipes is the only make-believe cookbook you’ll ever need. With Marjorie Winslow’s timeless guide on hand, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do in your backyard or by the seashore; you’ll be busy scooping up sand (a filling for Stuffed Sea Shells), hunting for flower petals (they make lovely hors d’oeuvres), and collecting raindrops (essential for brewing up Fried Water). The book is organized by course, and includes a general discussion of yard cookery along with detailed ingredient lists, methods for preparation, and helpful serving suggestions. And on every page, Erik Blegvad’s delightful pen-and-ink drawings ensure that Mud Pies and Other Recipes is a feast for the eyes as well as the imagination.

About the Author

Marjorie Winslow (1923-2012) lived in Arizona, California, Indiana, New York, and Massachusetts and found an abundance of doll food everywhere. Prior to publishing Mud Pies & Other Recipes in 1959, Winslow entered and won Vogue’s prestigious Prix de Paris competition, which launched a career in publishing first as a copywriter, then as a fashion editor. But this was not the extent of her occupations, which also included Mexican restaurant owner, carpenter, upholsterer, clothing designer, cook, and, as she said in the update she wrote for a class reunion, “a housewife, a mother, an author, a corporation president, a free spirit, a sober citizen, a failure, a success.”

Erik Blegvad was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1923. He has illustrated more than one hundred books, including seven written by his wife, Lenore. His memoir, Self-Portrait, was published in 1978.

I had it as a child, my daughters had their own copies, and now I am gifting it to the next generation. Wonderful "cookbook" that sparks imagination and playfulness.
