My husband asked me what I was chuckling about. I said I was reading a new cookbook. Then I told him "Take this cookbook and hide it. I want to cook and eat everything in it."

Two authentic Southern girls have put together THE Southern cookbook. Operating under the accurate assumption that anyone in her right culinary mind would want a cookbook suggesting right offerings for the right occasions, they've organized this set of recipes and recollections around church potlucks, sickbeds, gifts, football and clean-up days; it's not the regular divisions of appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes, desserts and such.

Patsy Caldwell knows how to coach the preparation of a good, not-too-hard dish; Amy Lyles tells the funny story of what that good dish really MEANS.

Put a bib on for this one - you're going to drool.

Bless Your Heart is a wonderful cookbook filled with great recipes. But what sets it apart are the stories, which beautifully capture the essence of the South. Now when my Yankee neighbors ask what it's like living in the South, I can hand them Bless Your Heart. Here they can learn about Aunt Lutie, who calls funeral home hotlines every morning so she can be first to comfort the bereaved with her mixed medley casserole, or Ella, who had the good fortune of being invited to join the Luckettville Learned Ladies Society. The writing is captivating and filled with love and understanding. A terrific read!

I received this book as a gift at Thanksgiving. I have since tried many of the dishes. Try the Macaroni & Cheese with Tomatoes, or the White Beans with Bacon and Tomato Sauce....A cookbook I actually use. This is wonderful.

Bless Your Heart by Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson is one of those armchair cookbooks with pretty photos, stories galore, and just the kind of recipes I like for the foods I enjoy the most. But if you decide to curl up in your most comfy chair to thumb through this cookbook, don't be surprised if you find yourself hopping up and running off to see if you've got the fixin's for that great looking mac and cheese or whatever caught your attention in the first few minutes after opening the cover.

If you weren't born in the south, you can still pretend you were when you get into the kitchen to prepare any of these southern favorites. There's a good chance there's a recipe in this book for whatever you're having a hankering for: fried chicken, potato salad, chili, coconut cake, banana bread, and on and on.

So since I've had all these good things to say about the book, why did I give it only three stars? Well, here's why: the dadgum book's falling apart. An entire section starting at page 169 has come unglued. I am sorely disappointed. I haven't overused the book. It's been handled with love, just the way I treat all my books. I'd hate to buy a replacement and have the same thing happen to it. I'd give it four stars but I have a nagging suspicion my book isn't the only one that's disintegrating. To me, this is a sign that the publishing house cut one too many corners in order to maximize profit and I think we deserve better.

This is a wonderful southern cookbook. Yes, some recipes use canned soup and others would make your doctor choke on his boring rice cake, but these recipes truly represent the food that is often served in the south. But don't despair, there are some healthy recipes, too.

This is a cookbook that I can envision using often and passing on to my daughter.

This is an awesome book! Lots of practical recipes that taste good - there's tons of recipes for baked goods in here too. Being a Californian with southern roots, these recipes remind of a time when a distant Georgia Aunt would cook dinner for us. In other words, buy the the damn book.

Here are all the recipes that you tasted at church gatherings, potlucks & Sunday dinner at Grandma's. Very rich & satisfying food, a little too rich at times, but just fix this type of food once in a while.

Here is a list of things I have made so far...all turned out just like I remembered - Good!

Beef Stroganoff
Water Tower chicken with two cheeses (I don't recall this recipe being named this way, but I do remember the dish)
Buttermilk pie with pecans
Chili Cheese pie
Cajun green beans
Peach pecan muffins

As you see, nothing fancy here, but darn good.

I also bought the cookbook "You Be Sweet" by Patsy Caldwell.....another keeper.
