Fixin’ to Eat: Southern Cooking for the Southern at Heart
I like to cook, so I jumped at the chance of obtaining a copy of this book. On the plus side, the recipes are pretty basic to make (nothing too difficult to do), easy to follow and don’t require any items that you can’t easily find in your pantry or grocery store. I would like to commend the author of this book! I kept reading it because I was so interested in all of the recipes as well as the graphics and the additional drink pages attached. Not everyone knows if they should be pairing with beer, wine or spirits or what kind of which but she went into great detail as to which one was best served with certain items! it was a page-turner for the fact that everything listed sounded amazing I cant wait to try the different cheese balls!
The cookbook includes some of the traditional southern recipes that you expect to find such as buttermilk biscuits, pimento cheese, and fried okra. The favorite recipes for me were the baked beans with bacon and the sweet cornbread. Both of which were the hit of my holiday party.
What I liked best about this cookbook is that the recipes didn’t have mile-long lists of ingredients; they were common ingredients that I can find in my small town grocery store, and probably even have in my pantry! Recipes utilize a minimum of ingredients so I’m not spending hours in the kitchen trying to recreate some fancy concoction. Each recipe delivers that down-home comfort that is just what I expect from Southern cooking.
