  1. I learned so much from her Fannie Farmer Baking Book, that a dear friend gifted me when I was starting to learn my way around a kitchen of my own.

    1. Thanks for letting us know. Her story shows that real people can do great things.

      1. What a lovely obituary. Thank you for posting this. She was such an inspiration. I love her cookbooks.

        1. That is a lovely obituary. Thanks for the link.

          1. The Breakfast Book by MC remains one of my favorite primers.

              +1 on that. My copy is so tattered, i really need a new one. It is a great book just to read through.

                I agree. The Bridge St. Ginger Muffins are still my favorite after all these years.

              2. One of my favorite cookbooks, Fannie Farmer. Very sad day indeed.

                1. This made me so sad. One of the finest food writers ever. I am actually taking her Swiss Cheese Spread (from the wonderful "The Supper Book") to a party tonight.
