My Take:

I am reviewing the Adobe Digital Edition provided to me for free from Net Galley.  I am getting so hungry reading these marvelous recipes!!! I have always thought that the food of the south is distinctively wonderful and these quick fix recipes make them so much more easy to enjoy.  At the beginning there are some very important and interesting tips for cooking southern such as how to make your own buttermilk and self rising flour...both helpful because I do not always have these ingredients on hand.  There are recipes for grits, biscuits and even fried green tomatoes!  Yummy...I'm going to have to try these slow cooker boiled peanuts!  And bring on the sweet tea!
