really liked it
Read from June 27 to July 10, 2010

While the title purports the book to be a guide for Southern Ladies, it is focused on the traditions of The Delta in general and Greeneville in particular.
Those with cholesterol issues are warned to stay away from this book, as it is half cookbook, and the funeral foods of the Delta are quite honestly comfort foods that are likely to cause another funeral. The other half of the book is gossipy comedic tales of Life In The South, which is a genre you either lived through or makes you feel better about your own kinfolk.
