This family history with recipes offers a flavorful tale spanning three generations as Flinn returns to the mix of food and memoir readers loved in her best-seller The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry. From a Route 66 trek to San Francisco to their Michigan farm to the shores of Florida, humor and adventure defines her family even in the worst of times. You'll savor Uncle Clarence's divine corn-flake-crusted fried chicken, Grandpa Charles' spicy San Antonio chili and her grandmother's birthday-only cinnamon rolls. Through these flavors, Flinn came to understand how meals can be memories and cooking can be communication. Brimming with warmth and wit, readers will delight in this revealing look at a family that just might resemble your own.--From publisher description.… (mais)

Having read " The sharper the knife, the less you cry" (and enjoying it a lot!) I was looking forward to reading the life story of Ms. Flinn, that led up to her trip to Paris. This book was highly enjoyable. It was good to hear about a "normal" person, who life wasn't either "plain horrible" or "just picture perfect!" I hope Ms. Flinn is planning on writing many more books - I look forward to reading them! ( )

Excellent memoir! I laughed, I cried, my stomach growled. I highly recommend it, and I look forward to reading her other books! ( )

An amusing and heartwarming chronicle of home, family, food, and the memories a recipe can evoke from the NYBTS author of The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry.

I'm not a huge fan of memoir (most people are far less interesting than they think they are), but this one was recommended and it had recipes so... My life and Ms. Flinn's life are very different, but so many of the foods she talked about were part of my childhood that it was like reading my own food history. Food can evoke memories like almost nothing else and each dish Ms. Flinn mentioned seemed to stir up another vivid piece of my childhood until this almost became like a dual memoir--hers and mine. 'Burnt Toast...' made me cry and it made me nostalgic and, most of all, it made me want to cook the foods of my youth, just to taste them again. ( )

Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good, the third memoir by Kathleen Flinn, is a sweet story of family, of the immigrant experience, and of the ability of our senses to trigger a memory. The first half of the book is anecdotal family history while the second half the more personal story of her own life. The recipes are part of the book but not central to it.
