Vicki LanskyVicki Lee Lansky (née Rogosin; January 6, 1942 – January 15, 2017) was an American author and publisher, best known for her cookbook ''Feed Me I'm Yours''.
''Feed Me I'm Yours'' began as a local fund-raising cookbook for the Minneapolis chapter of the Childbirth Education Association (CEA) in 1974. Lansky, then a new mother and recent transplant to suburban Minneapolis from New York City, was not familiar with local group 'favorite-recipe' fund-raising cookbooks. But Lansky, then a stay-at-home mom and CEA volunteer, suggested the idea at a meeting. CEA agreed to try the idea, whereupon Lansky rounded up five friends, some from CEA and some not, to help her with the project. She then presented an outline of a cookbook that would be of interest to new mothers, beginning with making baby food. With only two groups working in meetings and only one name suggested for the cookbook, the project was presented to CEA, who quickly agreed to fund the book's first printing.
In the Sunday food section of the ''Minneapolis Star and Tribune'' (December 1, 1974 issue), food editor Mary Hart featured Lansky and the cookbook. This inspired Lansky and her husband Bruce, who had worked in sales and marketing, to start a publishing company. Meadowbrook Press (named after Meadowbrook Lane where the couple lived) was created to sell ''Feed Me I'm Yours'' nationally. When the couple's marriage ended in the early 1980s, however, so did the business partnership; in the divorce settlement, her husband got the business, while she got their lake-front home.
