I have to say I LOVE cook books. I have bought so many that I now have a way to choose what I look for in a cook book. I will list what it takes to make me both buy and use a cookbook.
1. They must have pictures of the food! I am not talking little clip art pictures I am talking about a goal as to how the end product should look like and sometimes even to inspire me as to what I should serve with it or how to arrange the food on a plate to make it not only a feast for the tummy but also the eyes
This is a beautiful cookbook with so many new recipes to try, along with inspiring stories of locally owned farms around the southern states. The book cover and pages have a rustic look and feel, with a matte finish instead of glossy pages. It makes the book have more of a homespun feeling, even though sometimes the gorgeous photos do lose some of their luster.

My favorite thing about the cookbook was reading about all the locally owned farms and farmers markets that the author likes to visit. I'

I hate to say that when it comes to my cooking, the recipes have to be absurdly easy! I need my recipes to have plain old basic, inexpensive ingredients that I keep in the pantry or refrigerator/freezer on a regular basis. I don't want to have to buy a bunch of ingredients that I will only use in a single recipe, and then the rest will waste. If I was more organized, I would find more recipes to use those ingredients up, but I don't. Cooking is usually not my favorite thing to do(although I do l ...more

One of a Southerner's favorite meals is a slice of juicy, ripe homegrown tomato on a fresh, hot butter biscuit! I could almost taste that biscuit and feel the butter and juice from the tomato on my chin as I read "Farm Fresh Southern Cooking: Straight from the Garden to Your Dinner Table" by Tammy Algood. What a wonderful book! Beautifully produced on thick paper with colorful photos and helpful insights, this book is just the right size to be holdable and readable. As I write this in Spring, ou ...more
I’m not in the South, but I do enjoy all things Southern (well almost, I don’t like sweet tea, all may be too strong of word) so imagine my delight when there is a cookbook that combines farm fresh ingredients and Southern cooking. Like most cookbooks this is divided into appetizers, soups, salads, desserts, etc but unlike other cookbooks it features farm from the South that are worth looking into (physically or on the internet). Don’t think you have to have a garden to use these recipes, visit ...more

Travel the southern states with author Tammy Algood to find locally grown produce, herbs, farms, and farmers' markets. Then explore the 270 pages of recipes that Ms. Algood offers to not only tempt your taste buds, but also to expand your horizons with new fresh flavors, you may not have ever tried.
Besides the recipes, what I enjoyed the most about this cookbook is the author's trips to farms and farmers' markets all over the southern states of the U.S. She gives us an overview of what to expect

As the title and subtitle “Straight from the Garden to Your Dinner Table” indicates this is one of the many books published lately that works off the home grown produce angle. After a short introduction that reinforces that idea it is on to the recipes.

The book opens with “Appetizers” and that is started by “Crawfish-Stuffed Mushrooms” on pages 2 and 3. That is followed by other ideas such as “Coconut Fried Shrimp and Florida Citrus Dip” (page 9), “Pea-Picking Salsa” (pages 12-13), “’Where’s the

This is a beautiful, soft cover cookbook full of delicious recipes of the south using fresh ingredients found from the garden, u-pick farms and road side stands.
You'll find lots of photographs of the recipes on many of the pages. The author always includes a small blurb above the recipe highlighting her feelings about the meal, how often she makes it, how she serves it, etc.
Another treat to this cookbook is that it highlights those fresh farm ingredients. There is an entire page dedicated to ho

I love love love to cook from scratch, so cookbooks have been a fun genre for me to review. Over the years, I've developed some strong opinions about what I look for in a well-written recipe. Some general pet peeves I have are ingredients not listed in the order in which they appear, and recipes that are far too wordy.

Author Tammy Algood does a good job of giving us a well-written cookbook in Farm Fresh Southern Cooking. Her recipes are perhaps slightly verbose for my taste, but I think we can e

The cover of this cookbook got my attention right away. It is very attractive and made me want to pick up the book and dive in. I have quite a cookbook collection, so I was interested in adding a new one.

The author has a unique feature in her book. In between recipes, she has done features of different farmers’ markets and family run farms throughout the south. She is quite a fan of using locally grown produce, as well as, searching out unfamiliar vegetables and foods at those places, and giving
