Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line of laughter. I'm not much of a chef but this book made me want to cook! We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook reads easy, but is packed with thoughtful insights about family life around the table.

Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line of laughter. The female side of her family tree is dotted with funny storytellers. I especially liked hearing about Randolph's transformation to a vegan kitchen, and about Johnson's zest for life and the people she loved.

Johnson, author of a number of books on subjects ranging from family humor to brain science, and Randolph, her . This book describes events from both the mother and the adult daughter's perspective as well as the food that binds them together.

Johnson is a self-proclaimed bacon and butter lover; Randolph is vegan. Pictured is my attempt using their recipe and the picture only shows half of the meat loaf (but it is a large platter and the fork is a serving fork). The female side of her family tree is dotted with funny storytellers, prolific authors, hospitable home cooks, and champion chatters.

Becky forgets what month it is; Rachel is an organizational genius. At least before baby arrives. Becky forgets what month it is; Rachel is an organizational genius.

We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook.

A Mom and Daughter Dish about the Food That Delights Them and the Love That Binds Them. Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line of laughter. By: Rachel Randolph, Becky Johnson. Narrated by: Becky Johnson.

Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line . Rachel Randolph writes and speaks about parenting a toddler, young married life, and her and her husband’s unlikely journey to a plant-based diet with humor and honesty.

Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph come from a long line of laughter. The female side of her family tree is dotted with funny storytellers, prolific authors, hospitable home cooks, and champion chatters.

In We Love, We Laugh, We Cook, Becky―a butter and bacon loving mama―and Rachel―a vegan bean eating daughter―share stories of their crazy, wonderful, and sometimes challenging lives as Rachel becomes a mother herself.

Becky is messy; Rachel craves order. Becky forgets what month it is; Rachel is an organizational genius. (At least before baby arrives.) Sprinkled throughout are the lip-smacking, nourishing recipes they love to make and share.

From food for a family reunion of thirty, to lunch for a party of one in a high chair, to a hot meal for a sick friend, the authors demonstrate grace, acceptance, and love to others through the bonding gifts of humor, attentive listening, and cooking … whether diners prefer beef or tofu in their stew.

A nice read that includes both the joys and heartaches of life and how a mother and daughter both cooking to show love. This book describes events from both the mother and the adult daughter's perspective as well as the food that binds them together. Recipes are included and many are vegan friendly ~ even many that are gluten free friendly.

I only gave it 3 stars because I don't cook and the reading was a bit light for me. Personally, although I love reading inspirational stories, I would have liked more grit.

I'm not much of a chef but this book made me want to cook! We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook reads easy, but is packed with thoughtful insights about family life around the table. This mother and daughter team prove in their writing that although their personalities and culinary practices may vary from each other, they share an appreciation for amazing food and authentic relationships. I especially liked hearing about Randolph's transformation to a vegan kitchen, and about Johnson's zest for life and the people she loved. At the end of each chapter, the authors share the recipes of the dishes described. Fun! If you like cooking memoirs, or if you just want your heart warmed, this book is for you.

This book is adorably inspirational, humorous and the recipes are delicious! The mother / daughter relationship is so real and inspiring. It had me laughing, crying and itching to get in the kitchen to cook up something healthy (I know that's the title of the book, but I'm not kidding, it truly did all those things) or just curl up and keep reading. This book reminded me of how unpredictable life is, what a blessing it is to have family and that cooking and sharing a meal together is a precious gift. I follow their blog too and it's sooooo good...they post even more stories & yummy recipes with PICTURES! I can't wait for their second book...

These ladies pull their chairs up and make friends with you right off the bat. Although I am not a vegan, I love vegetables and clean eating. Right away I made the Roasted Garbanzos and have made them several times since. I love the chapter on Rachel's husbands obsession with Black Bean Salsa and I have made my own version of this recipe (depending on what I have around the house/garden) at least 10 times since reading the book. I am waiting for a break in my writing/cooking schedule to make the Vegan Mac & Cheese... it sounds AMAZING!

I have been eagerly anticipating the release of this book for months. I found it waiting in my mailbox when I got home from school/work yesterday. I sat down and began to read.

Much like devouring a bag of potato chips as comfort food following a bad day, I read the entire book well before bedtime. I LOVED IT! I am now doing the Fine Wine reading...re-reading it slowly so as to savor each page.

The book, part memoir, part cookbook and totally engaging, is well-named. I laughed out loud many times, I cried several times (Becky's stories about her mom always get to me!) and it made me want to run in the kitchen and whip up one of the 3 or 4 recipes at which are in each chapter even though I was the only one home. The butter loving recipes sound wonderful and vegan recipes are intriguing, too.

I have ordered books for both my daughters and I'm trying to decide how many to buy for Christmas gifts.

I originally got this as an e-book, but liked it so well I ordered in book form for the recipes. Also got one for my sister-in-law. Well written, cute format and the recipes sounded both healthy and good.

This is a sweet little book. Humorous, but tender stories shared by a mom and her adult daughter (a new mom!) are interspersed with some delicious recipes.
This book is doubly delicious - it is a great read, and it also has terrific recipes at the end of each chapter. I've already pre-purchased three Kindle copies for my daughters and daughter-in-law for Christmas. They will love it!!
