Rosia Lee Ivey's Recipes For Life

By John Arthur Ivey
Regular price $9.95

Rosia Lee Ivey is now ninety-six years old. She started cooking at the young age of thirteen. When Rosia's father died, all the household duties and cooking responsibilities fell on her shoulders. Her mother knew she could count on Rosia Lee to help take care of the family. John Arthur Ivey, Rosia's youngest son, wanted to write her legacy. The best way to represent his mother is to share the love of her cooking, which he put in the form of a cookbook. There are all of Rosia's southern-inspired recipes, which include "Rosia Lee's Real Apple Pie," "Ox Tail Stew," and "Cherie's Jazzy Gumbo." John hopes everyone will enjoy the food that has inspired his mother and sustained her family for over eighty years. Rosia Lee Ivey's Recipes for Life is a taste of life provided by Rosia and her family.
