There are two TOCs - one is hyperlinked and one is not. Neither is integrated with the Go menu on Kindle, so one cannot "Go To" the table of contents.
The introduction is somewhat bland and colorless; there's no sense of the author's personality and it ends with "We hope you enjoy the variety of southern soul food recipe choices we have compiled." I just don't get the sense that this is a collection of someone's personal family recipes, despite the "Uncle Harold's" and "Cousin Rita's" sprinkled throughout.
I was disappointed that the sweet potato pie called for frozen pastry and canned sweet potatoes. The peach cobbler calls for canned peaches in heavy syrup. The recipe says to save the juice but never explains why. The banana pudding recipe calls for boxed pudding, with the introduction saying "this is the quick version and just as good." Two recipes call for "store bought gravy," and the "Country Fried Steak and Gravy" has no instructions for gravy or recommendations, just "serve with gravy" in the introduction. I take shortcuts, too, but I would have expected something more than "store bought gravy" in a book with this title.
Of note, I will say that I don't really know whether the recipes fit the category "soul food"; cornish game hens, macaroni and cheese (from scratch), potato salad, salmon croquettes.
Here's the recipe that took the book from 3 down to 2 stars: Hog Wild Smothered Pork Chops. The intro says "you can purchase gravy or prepare from scratch." No instructions for preparing from scratch are given. The ingredient list calls for sliced onions but they are never used.Read more ›
The recipes are clearly explained,and in most cases a choice of ingredients that can help you save time in preparation is given. I like the variety of recipes, especially the desserts, which are not always incorporated in soul food recipe books.These days I'm enjoying mouth water dinners in mins
I do know I love okra, and pork and chicken 'n dumplings are my favorites. I'd love to cook collard greens. Now, I have an incredible cookbook that explains each step perfectly for no fail splendor. I can't wait to try the Orange Honey wings, also.
