There's homey comfort food like Connie May's Tomato Pie, created with and inspired by Connie May Fowler" (Remembering Blue)"; Thanksgiving Spinach Casserole (Elizabeth Berg's "Open House"); and Amish Chicken and Dumplings (Jodi Picoult'"s" "Plain Truth") . . . Sample salads, breads, and such soul-warming soups as Nearly-a-Meal Potato Soup (Terry Kay's "Shadow Song"); Mr. Casaubon's Chicken Noodle Soup (George Eliot's "Middlemarch"); and Mrs. Leibowitz's Lentil-Vegetable Soup (Frank McCourt's "Angela's Ashes") . . . After relishing appetizers and entrees, there's a dazzling array of desserts, including Carrot Pudding (Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol"); Effie Belle's Coconut Cake (Olive Ann Burns's "Cold Sassy Tree"); and the kids will love C.S.
