Weekend Cooking: FOUR New Southern Cookbooks!


Weekend Cooking is hosted by Beth Fish Reads.

Ninety percent of my sizable cookbook collection is Southern, ranging from local church cookbooks to ones penned by culinary icons. So, I was understandably excited to see four new Southern cookbooks coming out this fall, including this first one, by one of my favorite food bloggers:

"You won't find fancy food or new fangled recipes in this cookbook; just easy, no fuss Southern favorites because at the end of the day most folks want to come home to a meal just like Mama used to make, prepared by someone who loves them."

Just the cover alone on My Southern Food made me salivate. I'd love to see this cookbook's index of recipes!

Oooh. Thanks for the heads-up on these. The covers, especially My Southern Food, are very inspiring.

Hmmmm...they sound good.
I must say I have zero southern cookbooks.
well, it was zero until I bought one, an old Southern one from a Time-Life series, at a used book sale recently, but I haven't checked it out yet.

I love cookbooks and especially church cookbooks! They always have the best recipes!

bermudaonion said...

Yummy! They all look good, but the one that appeals to me the most is Second Helpings!

JoAnn said...

These all look good. The only real southern cookbooks in my collection are Junior League cookbooks I've picked up while on vacation.

Heather said...

makes me want to go and browse the cookbook shelves and look at the southern books and see what types of ingredients they use.

Thank you so much for blogging about my new book. The recipes are indeed mouth-watering, but my real cooking credit goes to my mama and mawmaw, Patricia Walker Ford and Cora Walker. Some of the recipes include Smokin' Bag Brisket, Creamy Dill New Potatoes, Just-A-Swingin' Chocolate Pie, and Hello Dolly Bars. Party Peas are a true Mama-original. Early peas with cream, a smattering of cheddar and paprika...and they are the best thing in the WORLD!!!! Songwriter Kim McLean is also creating a "soundtrack for the perfect southern meal" that you can preview on Youtube by searching "Sweet Tea - Kim McLean". Love you food bloggers and thank you from the bottom of my lil' Louisiana heart!!!!! Devon O'Day
