On one of my many cookbook /recipe searches , I found a cookbook called Americana Cookery. I liked the name , but I loved some of the recipes in it even more. Thought I might place some of them here for safe keeping and to share

This is a delicious version of a classic recipe! The wonderful spices flavored the broth nicely, and it made a wonderful gravy for the beef as well as the roasted vegetables. The only change I would make is to replace the turnips with parsnips (only due to family preference). But otherwise, there isn't anything to change with such a wonderful recipe. Thank you for sharing your recipe, chef 940807. Made for Fall 2012 Pick-A-Chef.
