While serving as area missionaries in the South American South Area, we frequently had the elders who were assigned to our ward for dinner. I asked one of the elders if he had any requests, since w always like to give them a taste of home. He asked me, “Do you how to make that little pink chicken like my mother makes?” I told him I didn’t but would email her to see if she could teach me how. His mother, Beverly Christensen of Logan, Utah, sent me the little pink chicken recipe. It has become a favorite of the Robinsons, Ruckers, and the Camerons – all South American South Area missionaries.

The Worldwide Ward Cookbook is full of delicious, not-too-hard recipes that will please almost any family member, and also family pictures and anecdotes that touch the heart and put a smile on the face. It also has a great format and design that really add to the appeal of the book. This isn't just a cookbook, it's an experience; it's a celebration of the kinship the gospel brings to us, no matter where we are.
One of The Best Cookbooks Ever!!!
by Teri - reviewed on November 13, 2009
I ordered this cookbook for our SIL for Christmas this year, as he loves to cook and collect cookbooks and I ordered it through Amazon and it came in the mail today. I spent a couple of hours going through this most amazing, wonderful cookbook. I loved everything about this book, especially the colorful pictures, the designs on each page, the little stories behind the recipes, a few photos of the people who submitted some of the recipes to make the book more personal. This is the first of a few more cookbooks from Deanna. She just came out with the Christmas Worldwide Cookbook and hear there's a Mother's Day Cookbook soon to come out. Another added plus to these cookbooks, is they are spiral-bound, so you lay them flat. Some of the different, moth-watering recipes are: Funeral Pototoes, Never Enough Guacamole, Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips, Gingerbread Pancakes, Navajo Fry Bread, Banana Applesauce Bread, Shrimp Tacos, Irish Pasties, Peruvian Stir-Fry, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Southern Sweet Potato Casserole, Iraqi Rice, Taco Soup, Better-Than-A-Flue-Shot-Soup, Tortellini Salad, Cookie Salad, Orange Sherbet Jell-O, Fruit Soup, Peanut Butter Popcorn, Perusian Flan, Norwegian Porridge, Jewish Apple Cake, Whole Wheat Angel Food Cake and Pumpkin Fudge. There is one small section for our Prophet's recipes that is way cool. This would be the perfect gift to give at Christmas. The only minor problem I could see was the blue font for the submitters info was a tad bit hard to read. Forever Friends Rating 5 Stars by Teri Until Next Time, See You Around The Book Nook.

Little Pink Chicken Submitter is pleased...

When I got the email from Deseret Book to check out the "Worldwide Ward Cookbook" little did I know my name would be in there. My son Jeremy still talks about the night Sister Robison cooked this chicken recipe-he was so pleased. I remember the surprise phone call from Argentina to request this recipe. I was touched by such personal concern for my son in the mission field. This recipe continues to be a favorite in our family and as a matter of fact, Jeremy requested it for his birthday dinner last month (Jan. 2009). Hope you enjoy! Tip: if you are in a hurry and don't want to bake it in the oven, just put the cooked chicken on the table and serve the thickened sauce on the side to pour on individually.
great recipes disapointing binding

The recipes I've tried are very good!! My problem is with the binding. The back 20 or so pages keep falling out and are hard to get back in. I want to order a few more for gifts but am hesitant because of this problem

I gave this cookbook to my wife because she loves to cook, but she reads it like a book because she loves the stories. I took a look myself and discovered that this is so much more than a cookbook! Plus it is big and has a hard cover. The wire binding inside lets the whole thing lay flat AND it is so strong that it will stand up and open on its own. Thick glossy pages and a binding that isn't going anywhere. I really feel like I got my money's worth with this book. Thank you so much!

I LOVE ward cookbooks, so when I saw this in the catalog, I literally rushed to DB. It's so pretty and nice to look at that I bought it. But I've been disappointed with the food produced by these recipes (& that's the important part, isn't it?) One cake recipe has a typo or something because it turns out as hard as a rock (yes, I'm sure it's the recipe, not me.) This book is just okay.
I love this book!

I really like the recipes that I have tried and the nostalgic feeling you get from reading the stories is incredible! Great job on the book!
