Summary and Info
I enjoyed the quirky recipes and stories. I read this straight through like a novel. This book is is not your traditional type of cook book. It contains many recipes that quite honestly, you would have to have grown up with to appreciate. She has offered some substitutions for health reasons, lard being all but outlawed now. This book contains some very old recipes that I had only heard of, but if you grew up in one of those homes that saved the bacon grease to cook with, this book is a keeper. A great cookbook on true southern recipes.
