I'm sorry,

But not only can we not afford the book,
but couldn't afford the traditions nor recipes either.

Let's take a recipe from the book and see how expensive it is:

2 boneless pork chops
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 jalapeño pepper
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup peach jam
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Fresh cilantro, chopped

That doesn't sound unaffordable - in fact, it sounds pretty good. Getting together as a family and enjoying it doesn't sound unaffordable, either. The gathering, eating, talking and enjoying each others' company costs only what you're already spending on food, and yet at the same time it's priceless. It's true the book is almost $30, but that's more likely a statement about Deseret Book than it is about the Romneys. You could probably talk your local public library into getting a copy, then you could just check it out if you feel that bad about the price of the book.

Dear Pops:

Thanks for your comments. Some people are just so negative and unhappy they just can't stop criticizing others. It's sad.

The book may be expensive, but "Proceeds from the 'Romney Family Table' will go to benefit the Center for Neurological Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston."

If this has any value at all, which is dubious considering its source, it belongs on the Food Network, not the DesNews. Norman, rational people had enough of the Romneys a LONG time ago.

This sounds like a delightful cookbook that includes not only recipes but also some great ideas about family traditions as well as teaching the benefits of having the family gather around the kitchen table and share conversations, experiences, and activities together. How uplifting this is especially in light of the kind of commotion and confusion that surround us in the world today. I applaud the Romney family for their good example of traditional family values. Thank you!

P.S. Most cookbooks out there whether they are sold at Deseret Book or WalMart or Barnes and Noble cost between $25 - $30, and the Romney's are donating the profits to a charitable cause.
