Recipes and Wooden Spoons (Tales from the Grace Chapel Inn)~ by Judy Baer

"And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

~ Matthew 25:40

After going through a bad divorce Judy decides to come back to her home town, Acorn Hill, to open an inn with her two older sisters in their childhood home. Since Judy's mother died giving birth to her, Judy has always been eager to find out details of the mother she never knew. One day while sifting through things in the basement she comes across one of her mother's cookbooks. In the pages of this book Judy starts to learn more about her mother's personality, but with the stress of running the inn and being back in the small town Jane begins to question if moving back was such a good idea after all.

This book was great, and it made me hungry. The book not only had a great storyline with interesting characters, but it also had some neat recipes as well. There are a few parts in the book that will make you laugh out loud and other parts that cause you to think about the impact we can have in other people's lives if we listen God's leading.
