Very entertaining southern humor
I really enjoyed this book. I'm going to send a copy to my sister. Being a southerner and from a long line of southern women, I can relate to so much. I love the humor and the recipes (many of which I remember from my childhood) help take me back in time.

great fun with cooking
These recipes tend to be sized for larger gatherings and are perfect for church potlucks or yes, funerals, and are basic great-tasting Southern cooking cuisine. The best part of the book, however, is the narrative -- it's hilariously observant of social mores and is worth reading even if you never cook.
