Liberace Cooks, Recipes From His Seven Dining Rooms

The publisher vetoed the original title,

"Mother I'd Rather Do It Myself"

Filled with hundreds of Polish and Italian recipes. Each chapter is tailored to a different dining experience and highlighted by a photo of one of Liberace's seven dining areas. My favorite is the TV watching dining room. (below)

The chandelier was used as a prop in
"Sincerely Yours." Warner Brothers gave it to Liberace when the film was finished.

Here's a breakfast recipe you should try:

Liberace Special 15 minute Eggs (serves 1)

1 tablespoon butter

2 eggs

1/4 cup half-and-half or light cream

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

Warm a baking dish about 2 1/2 to 3 inches across. Put in a little butter. Then break in the eggs. Pour over the half-and-half or cream, which should almost cover the eggs. Dot with remaining butter, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cheese. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 7 to 8 minutes until the whites are set.

Mmmmmmm! Nothing like a healthy portion of cholesterol to start off your day!
