I got this cookbook when it released and have been testing recipes since. YUM! Carol's banana bread is out of this world--my son wants me to make it every week for him. I've made some of the soups, the Earnhardt's rice, and a few of the main dishes as well. These recipes are time tested, family approved. My favorite kind of food--those that have been passed down from family members and friends. You know you cannot go wrong. Also, the stories and family photos are such a great bonus to the book. Lots of eye candy to look through while your food is cooking. Great mother's day gift!

"Pit Stop in a Southern Kitchen" is a great recipe book for anyone and a true "must have" for fans of Nascar greats Dale Earnhardt, Dale Jr., and Jeff Gordan. I met and talked with Martha Earnhardt and Carol Gordon Bickford when we exchanged books (my new title and theirs)at their recent signing during the Talladega race weekend. I found both of these new authors to be friendly, down-to-earth, and engaging in talk about future titles. This book is full of simple to prepare, time saving recipes that are sure to impress everyone from your kitchen table to your next family reunion.

"Pit Stop" also offers some short personal stories and pages of before unseen,and interesting family photographs from both Martha Earnhardt and Carol Gordon Bickford, depicting the rise of four of Nascar's most successful and respected drivers. If you like racing and love eating you will surely want to buy this book!

Both my husband and I have read this "cookbook" from cover to cover with excitement. We are true Dale Sr and Jr fans, so the stories were as great to read as the recipes we are trying. It is wonderful to see that Jr and Jeff are such loving and caring sons/grandsons. And to see the bond that was between Jeff and Sr was very special. These two ladies get our congratulations for putting together such a wonderful book. We will await more to come!

Here's a cookbook by the mothers of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and Jeff Gordon. The book is filled with family recipes and brief stories, along with some family photographs.

The two women are very different personalities and also have different cooking styles.

Martha Earnhardt is more of a from scratch, Southern cook. Look to her for your biscuit and cornbread recipes, along with some great cakes and desserts. She says that her late husband would not eat any casseroles, except for macaroni & cheese. She says she is not one for much spices beyond salt & pepper. Her recipes are your Southern basics.

Carol Gordon is a more modern cook. She loves mushrooms with a passion, and uses them in many of her recipes. She likes sour cream and cheese in her recipes. However, she also uses Stove Top stuffing and Minute Rice, which are two directions I can't go in.

Mrs. Earnhardt is pure small town, Southern traditions. I really enjoyed hearing about her kids and grandkids, and not just the famous ones. They seem like a closeknit, wonderful family.

Jeff Gordon's mother is from California. She comes from a much smaller family, has moved around a lot, been divorced and remarried. In other words, she is a more modern woman. She also seems quite nice and down to earth.

I picked out about a dozen recipes to try. There are more good ones in there, but I was already familiar with those. So far I have tried two. First, Martha Earnhardt's homemade ice cream is fantastic. It's very similar to a recipe my mother used when I was a child. I'm thrilled to have this recipe. Then I tried Mrs. Gordon's Swedish meatballs. This is the reason I gave the book only four stars. They were greasy and not even edible.

If you are a race fan and a Dale Earnhardt and/or Jeff Gordon fan (yes you can be both, lol) and you like simple, easy to prepare "home cooking" then you will probably like this cookbook.

It includes many antedotes from the mothers of both Dale and Jeff. it is interesting to see their different backgrounds in their stories and recipes. Not all the stories are about their famous son's, they include tales of other racing families they have met and their own families that are outside of racing as well. And some really nice blurbs about what it means to be the mother of a driver and the challenges and fun that go along with that.

I have prepared several recipes from the book and I have enjoyed them all. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Jeff's mother's recipe for lasagna. It is non-traditional but quite good. And I am native to the south so Martha's contributions really brought me back to my youth. And I was able to find recipes similiar to those prepared my by grandmother. So it was a win all around for me.

Overall, it doesn't contain any earth shattering, life changing recipes, but if you are a race fan (of even if you aren't) looking for simple, classic, family orientated dishes then you will enjoy this book.
