This is more than a cookbook, it is also a stroll back into the childhood of those of us who grew up in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The book is full of facts, writings and photos of Southwestern Pennsylvania with over 200 recipes collected over years of time. The beauty of the rolling hills and meadows, the smells captured in a warm breeze on a spring day and the taste of a homegrown tomato sandwiched in between two pieces of Grandma’s homemade bread can take you back to a moment in time that you would’ve otherwise forgotten. The sights, sounds and smells bid you come and they never fail to remind you that… You Grew up in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
“Douglas Robinson knows that Southwestern Pennsylvania is something that gets into your blood, and often it’s from the food.” Bob Batz Jr., Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Read Full Article
The “I Grew Up in Southwestern Pennsylvania Cookbook” features historical facts, more than 100 vintage photographs, Southwestern Pennsylvania slang word definitions and a compilation of more than 200 recipes that are signatures of the area and dear to a wide range of local residents.
“This is more than a cookbook but it is a stroll back into the childhood of those of us who grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania,” Robinson wrote on the back cover.

I Love, Love, Love this book. In addition to a cookbook with some of the BEST recipes, it tells of Pittsburgh’s history, and use of words that are only known to true “Pittsburghers.” The first day I got the book, I read it twice from front to back!
