Wore out my first copy
This is the first cookbook that you will want ot read "cover to cover". The pictures depicting the South are mesmerizing. Try the recipes or don't - it takes you into another world of home spun warmth and flavor and great laughs.
I wore out my first one reading, cooking and sharing it. I give it as gifts regularly.
