I love this cookbook! There are several recipes I go back to time and again because they are so tasty. Included among the recipes are photos and quotes and information from and about the Andy Griffith Show. I'm pretty sure if the food was mentioned on the show, the recipe made it here. Including the famous peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

One of the great things about the layout of this book is the spiral binding. It stays open! Those you who still use books when cooking understand how importan

this is a cookbook but a rather unique one. I read it because i am a fan of the Andy Griffith Show. all the recipes are ones that could have come from Aunt Bees cooking. all the recipes are from cooks from the southern states. some of the recipes are from actual cast members from the Andy Griffith show. for some fun added to this cookbook,there are pictures of the cast. some of the pictures features a bit of a biography of the character. also included are some short scripts from the show usually ...more

I'm a long time fan of The Andy Griffith Show so I new I would enjoy this one. Interesting, quirky recipes such as Aunt Bees Kerosene Cucumbers. One of my favorite episodes! Loaded with pictures and commentary from the many black and white episodes over the years. A true treasure for fans of the much beloved show. It also has Charlene's Fish Muddle recipe!

Lots of fat and sugar and few spices. Go for the desserts.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes cookbooks are to reminisce about tv in the 60's
Recommended to Peggy by: a wedding gift
I really liked the recipes in this book. Lots of good old food like Granny made. All sorts of anecdotes about the TV show and comments from the characters about Aunt Bee's cooking. The recipes are a compliation of cast members' contributions and recipes from all over the US. It was a fun book to read and I think I might make some of Aunt Bee's recipes. This neat cookbook was one of two cookbooks that my sister received as a wedding present.

Watched the Andy Griffith as a child and now as reruns. Characters become like people we know. Lots of the recipes that Aunt Bee Cooked and also Barney's Famous Boarding House Chili. Who could ever forget Aunt Bee's Pickles or her Apple Pie??
Book is also filled with pics and writing of various shows. Has found a place with my fav cookbooks. I'm sure I'll use lots.
Didn't put a date I finished, since will be using over and over. Recommend to others.

This had plenty of recipes... but, even better.. lots of background stories of the series. I like that it was more than just Aunt Bee's recipes but included recipes that were made in nearly every main character's home in Mayberry! A book that takes you back in time and reminds you of the things in life that truly matter.. Family and friends. Nothing says love.. more than a gathering around the dining room table or sitting on the couch.. sharing a meal.. and sharing unconditional love!

I just love this book! It was a gift from my mother, because she knew how much I loved the Andy Griffith Show growing up. The book is full of photos and great trivia from the show, plus tons of fantastic recipes that you'll want to make again and again.

A trip back to Mayberry. I loved the show and the characters. This book is more than a cookbook. It brings back a lot of memories. Most of the recipes are wonderful and very easy to follow.
