Hey everyone!! I just wanted to let you know that the product mentioned below,  I received for free to try out and review and/or received compensation for it. Regardless, all opinions are my own. Thanks so much for reading and enjoy!!

Taste of Home Recipes Across America


Taste of Home Recipes Across America, is one recipe book I think everyone should own. It is full of wonderful recipes that the whole family can truly enjoy. It is divided into 5 regions (Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest, and West). In this cookbook it offers 735 delectable recipes!! I had a lot of fun looking at each recipe and I found a lot that I am excited to try out!

Over the weekend I decided to do some cooking and I tried out a couple of the recipes, and I have to say I was pretty impressed. I did an Irish Soda Bread and a Venison Roast! Both recipes turned out really well. My husband loves venison and he said this recipe is one of the best he has had. I was impressed he said that, as he has tried so many different ways to cook venison!

Irish Soda Bread


One recipe I really loved was the Irish Soda Bread! My mother-in-law makes something similar to this all the time! I was impressed with the recipe, it turned out really well. I did add a little cinnamon to my recipe but I kept everything else the same.


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup raisins


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter until crumbly.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg and buttermilk. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in raisins.
  3. Knead on a floured surface for 1 minute. Shape into a loaf and placed on a greased baking sheet. Cut a 1/4 inch deep cross in the top of the loaf. Beat the remaining egg and brush over the loaf.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 3-35 minutes or until golden brown.


Overall we loved the book, and I can’t wait to test out more recipes from this cookbook. This would make a fabulous gift for anyone who enjoys to cook and bake!
