Good basic recipes
Easy to prepare recipes with basic ingredients. It's great that some of her restaurant recipes are included. Paula is all about comfort food and this book is full of comfort recipes.

This is the Paula Deene I love!
When I read Paula's recipes, I can almost smell them cooking. I've made several of these dishes and my family was thrilled. The flavors are just like home. Paula's idea of comfort foods really hit the mark in this book.

The title of the book causes me to salivate...opening it stimulates me as chocolate affects others. "Country cooking" is not always what it is cracked up to be, but this book surpasses and exceeds the phrase. As a Texan and Southern woman I recommend these recipes, most of which I have cooked and enjoyed, very highly.
Publishers Weekly, 1998-04-06 In his enthusiastic introduction, John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, writes: "Authentic Southern food is not about pretension." Sure enough, this book by the proprietor of The Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah, Ga., doesn't put on any airs. A great many recipes unabashedly list prepared foods among the ingredients. As an appetizer, Garlic Cheese Spread includes an eight-ounce package of cream cheese and an eight-ounce jar of Cheez-Whiz. Shrimp or Lobster Bisque contains, in addition to seafood, a can each of condensed tomato soup and condensed mushroom soup. The restaurant's most popular dessert is Gooey Butter Cakes, which starts with a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. Still, some of the recipes attain a high level of regional authenticity: Georgia Cracker Salad is made with crushed saltines, tomato, scallions, hard-boiled egg and mayonnaise; Southern Fried Chicken acquires its crispy coating with a batter of eggs and self-rising flour. Readers concerned about high fat content should skip this book. But those looking for some distinctively American comfort foodĉand in a mood for some decidedly anti-nouvelle regressionĉmight want to take a peek. (May)
