"DELICIOUS, SOUTHERN RECIPES WITHOUT THE CALORIES!"
on February 5, 2013
I have had the pleasure of enjoying Southern comfort-food over the years, but never had the opportunity to collect unique recipes for my own kitchen. Bobby Deen, host of his own show, Not My Mama's Meals, delivers over one-hundred of his all-time favorite recipes. His top priority was to continue to cook the mouth-watering recipes he grew-up on, while replacing high-calorie items with lo-cal versions, then testing his results. In conclusion, the Southern flavors were locked in to perfection and never changed. He realized that he didn't have to sacrifice any of his favorites. However, each recipe is 350 calories, or less, which is a huge bonus. Bobby Deen offers recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinners. In addition, recipes are included for Soup, Salads, and much more. The tasty Appetizers such as Seafood Dip and Party Guacamole are sure to be a big hit, and luscious Desserts such as Raspberry Angel Pie, or Peach Cobbler makes your mouth water by just looking at the photos. "FROM MAMA'S TABLE TO MINE" also includes sandwiches, side-dishes, tips, and stunning photos of prepared-cooked recipes. I cannot wait to try the Mini Savannah Crab Cakes, and Not My Mama's Banana Pudding. The author includes a select group of foods that he works with in his diet such as Avocado, Blueberries, Sweet Potatoes, and more. Bobby Deen can honestly say; 'You can have your cake and eat it too!' Easy-to-read recipes, classic comfort-food, inspiring calorie charts per recipe, and colorful illustrations. An Update on New Recipes we made: FRENCH ONION SOUP, which we love, very tasty and will indeed make again. Also, we made JACK's CORN CHOWDER, delicious & filling. One of my favorites is REAL SOUTHERN CORN BREAD. This is the Best corn bread recipe I have found thus far and I've been searching for years. My daughter and I enjoy toasting the corn bread and adding butter. The taste is sensational. A fascinating cookbook for every kitchen, and a great gift idea for any chef. Highly recommended!
