This is hands-down the most used cookbook in my collection! Although there's nothing too adventurous here, every recipe is a tried-and-true standard, and even though most recipes are "southern" style, there's plenty of good American comfort food anyone can enjoy, regardless of where you hail from. The benefit of being compliled by Southern Living is that these recipes have been tested over the decades, so every recipe is a winner, every single time! Any time anyone asks me for a good cookbook, t...more
This is a great all in one cookbook for people who like to make (and eat!) Southern Comfort food. If you're a dieter, this probably isn't the book for you, though there are a few low cal meals. My favorite thing about this book is how straight forward the recipes are and that there is always cook time listed. You'll find yourself, if you're anything like me, buying lots of cookbooks but only using this one.
I feel the need to rate this because I use this cookbook so incredibly much. I've used it for everything from baby showers to nice dinners to Thanksgiving desserts. This book provides not only recipes, but detailed 'how to' pictures so that even complicated meals are easy. Highly recommended for anyone who spends lots of time in their kitchen.
This is one of my most-used cookbooks. Excellent informal as well as elegant recipes with a wide range of cook's experience levels. I collect the annual Southern Living cookbooks and use them all, but besides the annual Christmas books that also have menus and recipes, this is by far the best cookbook Southern Living has published.
The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook offers amazing recipes that is fitting for any occasion. This book features many color photographs of the recipes and step-by-step instructions as well as tips and techniques. A wonderful resource for any cook.
