I have always had trouble making tasty, fluffy biscuits before now. The Callie's buttermilk biscuit recipe is easy and foolproof. I even froze a batch and used them a week latter for cobbler. They were just as good. The rest of the recipes are a mix of family meals and celebration sized menus. The layout is well done, pictures useful, and text easy to read. Looking forward to more from Carrie Morey!

Just took a class, with Carrie Morey, about the cookbook and everything we made was AMAZING! She noted that page 21 "Black Pepper Biscuits" contains a typo - it should be 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons (NOT tablespoons) in the biscuit dough. She is a traditional southern home cook, with a background in elementary education, so she is able to create easy to understand, delicious recipes for the modern southern cook (and those who wish to cook in a southern style). I own so many cookbooks, that I now try to not buy new cookbooks, but this one was worth the purchase!

I pre-ordered this book and was anxiously awaiting its arrival. It is everything I hoped it would be! Pictures of delicious looking food, not just biscuits, and well written recipes

I have lived all over the US, but I am a Southern girl at heart. My parents were both born and raised in the South, and I grew up on good, Southern cooking. I couldn't wait to start cooking from this book. I'll be honest, I'm something of a biscuit snob. To me, biscuits should be simple and so I haven't made Callie's biscuits yet (I've never HEARD of putting cream cheese into biscuits!), but will probably give them a go sometime in the future. I do heartily agree with her preference for White Lily flour for your biscuits, though. It's the best brand I've found for great biscuits.

This is definitely a book on Southern cooking and, as such, Callie loves her butter!! Now I love butter as much as the next person (I refuse to even have margarine in my house!), but 1 stick of butter for the "A Cup A Cup A Cobbler" recipe was definitely too much. I took it to church for our potluck, and the ladies there agreed that the cobbler taste was good, but it was way too much butter. I would recommend dropping it to no more than 1/2 stick, and possibly less. On the same vein, I was going to whip up the "Christmas Cast-Iron Apple" which looks like a cross between an apple pie and an apple crumble today, but between the pie crust recipe and the pie recipe, it calls for a grand total of 2 1/4 sticks of butter! I decided to hold this recipe until Thanksgiving when I can just indulge and not worry about it!

Mrs. Em's Bread has a wonderful flavor. It's quick and easy to whip up and the results were great. I will say that the inside of mine was slightly doughy even though by her guidelines it should have been done, but that could be partly due to my new loaf pan. Next time I'll let it cook about 5 minutes more than she says.

This book has a great basic roasted chicken recipe, with instructions for several varieties. I made the Greek Chicken, and it came out wonderful!! It is very easy to make and has a luscious flavor to it.

If you're into eating healthy, be careful with this book!! It is truly Southern in many ways. However, if you just love to eat Southern and hang the calories, or if you want that splurge ever so often, this would be a great cookbook for you! I definitely plan to keep it around, and there are lots of recipes I can't wait to try. (The "Lighter Low Country Tomato Pie" is absolutely calling my name!) Grab yourself a copy and let's get cooking!!

I received a copy of this book from Simon & Schuster for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This book made me want to buy a square cast iron skillet! I think my biscuits may have worked out better with it.
I saw Carrie Morey on Fox and Friends. She was charming. Her cookbook is good. And full of cholesterol laden recipes. Some of the directions for her recipes are hidden in the description, so don't go straight to the recipe...read the description first.

This is one of the most beautiful cookbooks in layout and in the presentation of recipes that I have seen. I am a cookbook collector and I have enjoyed reading the book. Will now use the recipes. What made me order this book was I ordered these biscuits from QVC already prepared and boy were they good. I ordered the black pepper, cheese and ham. The book is great! Thanks.

The recipes in this cookbook are easy to folllow and the explanations are very detailed. Have tried some of the recipes already and my family loved them. This is one of those cookbooks that should be in every cooks library.

Yummy, yummy, yummy!! Love that the recipes are heirloom. Matched some recipes up to my grandmother's missing recipes, where I always wondered what was her special ingredients and technique.
