Customer Reviews

I love Christy Jordan's cookbooks.
As for recipes themselves, I have earmarked several that I will definitely try, but I am already familiar with many of the recipes in this book.
Definitely recommend this cookbook for anyone who doesn't want to spend the entire day in the kitchen but wants to give their family good food.

I loved Christy's first cookbook and love this one as well. I like that it's so affordable. This is simple southern cooking at it's best. Christy's recipes remind me of the kinds of recipes I grew up on and continue to cook for my family. I love to cook and on the weekends I enjoy more complicated and time consuming recipes and even sometimes tackle a gourmet recipe. During the work week I come home exhausted and just want to prepare a simple but filling recipe and this book gives me lots of those. I like that there are slow cooker options for many recipes included in this book too. There's nothing like coming home to a meal already prepared or mostly prepared and ready to dig into. If you enjoy reading your cookbooks as I do you'll also enjoy the little stories and inspirational messages Christy includes. I've already made the Chinese Chicken Salad (great to take for my lunches at work), Italian Beef Sandwiches (I used the slow cooker version and only had to stir fry my peppers and onions when I got home from work) and beef gravy. I love that she gives you the option and recipes to make some of the things homemade instead of using things like Jared gravy or canned soup. I'm not against using those things to make my life simpler either but often homemade not only tastes better but is healthier and cheaper as well. I also have ingredients for the coming week to make Pizza Rolls, Steak Tips over Rice, and the Simple Fruit Crisp. I have lots more recipes marked and ingredient lists prepared for the coming weeks. Thanks Christy for helping me Come Home to Supper!

Come Home to Supper: Over 200 Casseroles, Skillets, and Sides (Desserts, Too!)--to Feed Your Family with Love is Christy Jordan's much awaited book after her surprise runaway hit Southern Plate. She states in her introduction that this is a book about feeding your family on busy nights. She says sometimes we all sit around watching a tv chef prepare filet mignon when what we're really wanting is a new recipe to prepare a pound of ground beef to feed our family. I think that's practical insightful thinking for modern families relying on the drive through.

Her book is a paperback and it doesn't stay open on its own. You will need a cookbook stand to use this book at the stove. I don't need a photograph for each recipe but many of you will be disappointed to learn that there isn't a photograph for each one. Most of the food photography is full page and looks appetizing.

The recipes are divided into the following chapters: beef; pork; chicken; seafood; sandwiches; casseroles; sides; breads; desserts; and pantry. As you can see, the author tries to deliver on her promise to deliver practical, no frills, everyday cooking to you. These recipes are clearly written and will involve no online shopping to buy obscure ingredients. Most ingredients are probably in your pantry this very second. You also won't have to buy a half shopping cart of ingredients to prepare a meal from this book.

Jordan inflects a lot of the same soul from Southern Plate into this book. She talks about reliance on family and spending meaningful time with your children in asides throughout the book that are sprinkled with family photographs.

This book is full of practical, easy to prepare foods that your family will love. Every recipe I have made that I've gotten from Christy has been a hit at my house with my kids and my husband. This is not a gourmet cookbook, and if that is what you are looking for - keep looking. This book is your go-to weeknight cookbook for when you need to get food on the table for your hungry family. This is a wonderful resource for working parents (don't want to leave out those dads that cook!) or those just getting started learning to cook. Christy shares lots of tips and helpful information, as well as sprinkling in bits of inspiring quotes and family stories. Anyone that reads knows that Christy is a gifted story-teller as well as a wonderful cook. She also encourages us to make time to spend with our family around the dinner (supper) table because it is a great way to connect. This book is mostly recipes, but it's never JUST about the food with Christy! :) She is a real encourager - she wants to feed your soul and not just your belly.
I've already tried some of the recipes that are included because they have been on her website, but that's ok because it will be handy to pull out this book and not have to search it on the computer when I want it. But there are LOTS of new recipes as well.
It's true that Christy makes use of convenience items in some of her recipes, As a working mom, I rely on those a lot also. Who has the time to cook a full gourmet meal after a full day of work and possibly an evening full of kids activities? But she has taken it a step further for you and included the recipes to make your own "cream of" soups and various sauces. I love fancy food as much as some of the "foodies" do, but at the end of a long day I want something easy to prepare and comforting to eat. This is the book I'm going to be pulling from over and over!

More About the Author

My name is Christy and I like to feed people.

My love of feeding good folks good food led to me starting, my website dedicated to teaching classic Southern dishes through step by step photos, mixed with a few stories from my life and the folks who raised me. In it's second year, Southern Plate had over 43 million page views, and a following of some awfully nice people who have become my Southern Plate Family. I thank the good Lord for them each and every day.

I'm a wife and mother of two and I've lived in North Alabama all of my life. My Southern roots run deep, with my "people" (as we call our ancestors) moving to Alabama before it was even a state. I was raised by some of the best people in the world who taught me that life is good, homecooking is best, and there is always something to be grateful for.

My food is simple, old fashioned, economical, and in most cases quick and easy, too! Southern food is, in it's purest form, all of these things. I believe what makes it so delicious is that it is traditionally prepared by someone who loves you. That's the Southerner's secret ingredient :).
