Home Cookin' with Dave's MomHome Cookin' with Dave's Mom - Dorothy Letterman, the diminutive grey-haired mother of late night talk show host David Letterman published this book of recipes and childhood recollections with the assistance of staff writer Jess Cagle. Published by Pocket Books, "Home Cookin' with Dave's Mom" contains such hearty heartland dishes as Ham Loaf, Coca-Cola Cake, Sauerkraut Balls, and Uncle Earls' Creamed Chipped Beef on Tater Tots.

Also included is Dave's favorite Fried Baloney Sandwich recipe, which Dorothy once prepared on-the-air when her son asked for instructions on how to make it; and her Sour Cherry Pie that Dorothy usually makes for Dave's birthday. The book is also filled with memories from Dorothy's own Indiana childhood and plenty of personal family photos such as Dave selling lemonade, and playing baseball.
