OK, I have to be honest...I have never read a Sherryl Woods book, so I don't knw about The Sweet Magnolias series and can't refer to it in this review. I focused much more on the recipes given. I happen to love when authors do recipes and/or cookbooks for their works. I must admit that I have found some rockin' recipes that way and, in my humble opinion, this book will not be an exception.

I loved this book though. I swear I am a misplanted Southern girl cuz I love Southern influence in my recipe

The idea of 'Southern (American) Hospitality' is known of worldwide, mostly as a concept, as if you ask most non-Americans what exactly is southern hospitality and cuisine they may start to flounder after mentioning happy, open people and maybe a chowder. Or guess Mexican?

For those who don't really know what to expect, this book will provide a good introduction to the whole enchilada and let you create a little bit of ol' southern hospitality in your own home, wherever it might be. Of course, fo

First Thought after Trying: The Sweet Magnolias Cookbook is full of fun recipes with a Southern Twist. As a southern gal, I can say that I whole-heartily approve!

What type of Recipes: The recipes in The Sweet Magnolias Cookbook run from appetizers to desserts. There is something for almost everyone: sweet, spicy, simple, complicated, alcohol-included, and alcohol not-included. Many of these recipes would be

The Sweet Magnolias Cookbook 150 Favorite Southern Recipes by Sherryl Woods with Chef Teddi Wohlford
ISBN: 9780373892600
Love that this cookbook is not only about the food at the margarita club meetings but other locations in the series: Sullivan's Restaurant, Farmer's Market,
Corner Spa, and the other special places the people gather to celebrate.
Starts out with the introduction about Southern Food and other experiences in the series of holidays, memories and disasters and successes.

I quite enjoyed this, you do not have to want to cook southern recipes to find many useful and tastey sounding recipes in this one. I have several marked to try. Some recipes are simple and some are more difficult, but not way out there difficult. I am an avid cookbook reader and collector and give it 5 stars. Nice photos, great layout, love that is does not weigh 50 pounds like some of the new ones out there. And if you read the series of romance novels by Woods many of those delicious sounding ...more

While reading the Sweet Magnolias series you hear about all the food and drinks, so when I saw that they were going to do a cookbook based on what was talked about within the series, I knew I wanted to check it out.

I ended up copying dozens of recipes and can't wait to try them out. I just might have to have my own margarita night to preview a bunch for friends!

Fun and delicious sounding recipes from the South. Twenty-five years and more ago, I traveled often in the South for business. From these trips, I acquired an admiration and love for Southern style cooking. This cookbook with lovely photographs "feeds" that interest. The small "stories" from novels I have not read, add some fun.

One can never have enough cookbooks around for variety. Pulled this off the bookshelf and gave a few a try. All turned out good, and were easy to follow along in creating the dish.

I've not read any of the author's other books, nor the series which fictitiously narrates this cookbook. Yet, I found this cookbook to be super fun, and even marked many of the recipes to try.

With two other careers to her credit before becoming a novelist and four states in which she's lived for extended periods of time, Sherryl Woods has collected friends and memories, along with way too much unnecessary junk.

"The friends are the only things I've brought with me through the years that really matter," she says. "I could probably live without one more chintz teacup, another tin-litho sa
