I could not adore this book more. If you're from Florida, especially North Central Florida where Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings lived, you'll understand. Sally Morrison truly uses NCF ingredients and shows off Old Florida cooking. It's Southern cooking but it has it's own twist. I love the slices of life she adds between the recipes, recounting her time living in MKR's house at Cross Creek. It makes me so homesick. I found the recipes to be completely approachable and she offers substitutes for ingred ...more

As a cook in the deep Gulf coastal south, I pull this book out when seasons change and I'm looking for recipes and inspiration for the fresh ingredients at the market. Love it!

I admit that I have a tendency to romanticize Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings's home in Cross Creek. I've visited several times--a couple as a kid, when I thought it was boring, and the rest as an adult, when I fell in love with it. That said, this author not only worked as a park ranger at the Rawlings home, she actually got to live there for a while.

An enchanting tale of a park ranger's (Sally Morrison) experience living on site at the Marjorie K Rawlings homestead in Cross Creek, Florida and also a cookbook. The stories Morrison shares are very informative and a lot of fun, but her recipes are mostly a rather dated collection of odd, nature-inspired, hippie-fantastic ones she and her friends created in the early 1980s when the book was written. Which is fine, but don't expect to find authentic recipes of old Florida here, though there are ...more

I enjoyed the "flashbacks" to Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' stay at Cross Creek--and this modern-day Park Service ranger and ecologist aptly reproduces some of Rawlings' recipes as well as adding some of her own, and some of her friends'. Since Rawlings also commented on the environment, both flora and fauna, of the area, the comments of "how it is today" were very relevant. Between Rawlings' cookbook and this one, there is a down-home recipe for any occasion!

I loved reading this...and then I realized I knew the author when I was a teenager! Her parents were friends of my parents and I'd met her several times on camping trips. That was such a surprise.
