Devoted to Cooking
by Jackie King & Jennifer Sohl

Devoted to Cooking is a nonfiction collection of inspirational family stories ranging from 1899 to the present time. Written by Jacqueline King, a Tulsa writer, and her daughter Jennifer Sohl, a Sand Springs chef, the stories are sure to inspire, inform, and entertain. Each tale is followed by its own special Bible verse, prayer and recipe. Readers can expect to experience either smiles or the occasional sting of tears with this poignant book.

Both authors focus on their own particular specialty. Jacqueline King is a full time Tulsa writer who cooks. Her daughter, Jennifer Sohl, is a Sand Springs caterer who writes. The stories express the different circumstances of each writer’s life.

King’s stories span three generations. She recounts a tale told to her many years ago by a great grandmother. This account tells of the woman living in Oklahoma Territory as a child and being forced to deal with adult responsibilities. King also writes of hardship during the Great Depression including the night her single mother served stories for supper, because there was nothing to eat.

Some portions of the book focus on happy and successful single living. King says she acquired this skill in the years following an unexpected and devastating divorce. Her stories also speak of dealing with grief—first from her divorce and years later from the death of her 38-year-old son. Each account rings with honesty and courage.

Sohl, wife of a Tulsa Firefighter and mother of red-headed twins, writes her stories with a lighter touch. She tells of her childhood and of the challenges and joys experienced in caring for her family. Sohl also gives the fascinating details of starting a successful catering business almost by coincidence. Sohl feels she was divinely directed in each step of her venture.

Sohl, business woman, wife and mother, gives readers step-by-step practical tips on easy meal planning. “Cook once and eat all week without enduring leftovers,” she says. She also emphasizes teaching children to love cooking at an early age. “Both women and men must learn to celebrate each day of their lives by serving creative and easy-to-prepare meals.”

King applies her fictional voice to the true life stories in Devoted to Cooking. Her writing voice remains consistent, but King’s tone and style change from her earlier “Foxy Hen” novellas.

“Take one pound of sweet wisdom, stir in three cups of inspiration, and add a dash of charm. Season with frequent smiles, prayerful insight and down-to-earth fun, then garnish with a side order of tissues--and serve with warm wishes. Devoted to Cooking is 5-star dining (and reading!) at its best.”
—Amy D. Shojai, author of 22 nonfiction books including Chicken Soup for the Dog (and Cat) Loverís Soul.

Delightful characters show us what life was like for orphans and spinsters in Indian Territory from the end of the 19th Century until November 1907, when I. T. became the raw new state of Oklahoma.”
