What would the South be without deviled eggs at the church potluck? Can you even begin to imagine a family reunion where nobody remembered to make the baked beans and sweet tea? Is it possible to celebrate a major holiday without crunchy sweet potato casserole on the buffet table? Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson don t think so, either. Indeed, every occasion in the Sou ...more

This is kind of a cute cookbook, because of the personal stories that start off each section of the book. But it read more like a badly-done church cookbook when it came to the actual recipes -- lots of canned soups and canned veg, etc. Plus -- the cover features a nummy-looking mac & cheese dish -- but I couldn't tell which recipe it was! I would suggest, if you want to look at this book, check it out from the lbrary, but don't buy it.

Oh one more thing -- there's a really good AND EASY rec

Of all the "Southern Cookbooks" that I own, this one has ultimately turned out to be my least favorite.

The anecdotes were interesting enough and added a nice personal touch to the book. The recipes, however, were a let down. Some are certainly classics and I will keep it around for a few of the recipes in it... But ultimately I do have to agree with one reviewer on GoodReads who said that it reads"more like a badly-done church cookbook when it came to the actual recipes".

Technically, Glenda bought this for me for my birthday (she gave me an Amazon gift card and I spent some on this book). Everyone knows my deep, dark secret about cookbooks (if you don't, "bless your heart"). I have to admit the recipes in this one look easy to make and familiar to most Southerners (although I have to say, I've never heard of "barbequed bologna"--just ew...). There were two reasons that I couldn't give it five stars. One was that several of the iced tea recipes used instant tea ( ...more

Funny little stories and I probably gained ten pounds from just reading this one. I'd wished that the book relied less and canned goods and more on fresh flavors, but certainly reminded me of my very southern grandmother.

Born and bred in Tennessee, the recipes and stories herein could very well be mine. This cookbook is like a hug from a friend.

I enjoy the simplicity of the recipes. Food shouldn't be fussed over--just enjoyed. Despite many of the recipes being old favorites many of them are great variations that I will enjoy trying. Still think you need sweet pickle juice in the deviled eggs. ;-)

This is a great introduction to southern cooking without the celebrity chef in the way.
