Book Description

Not all Southern cooking is the same, and this collection is not about fried chicken or biscuits and gravy. Not that some of those famous Southern dishes aren't delicious.

Being from Virginia originally, I grew up with my mother cooking like her mother. Everything was smothered in butter, grease, or heavy cream. My Mom was known to fry Krispy Kreme doughnuts in butter, served hot to our family. Yum yum.

So with apologies to my early days, I offer this collection of (mostly) healthy alternatives. Each of these recipes is the result of my becoming a vegetarian just after my college days, but easing back into the mainstream over a few years. The results of my culinary journey developed an eclectic collection of my family's favorites.

From melt in your mouth eggplant parmesan, to green beans that taste fabulous, without the ham hoc, we have enjoyed these dishes for years. Fantastic and healthy halibut, and McGuire Chicken (you must try this one) are examples of the variety.

And, because you deserve it, treat yourself with the best cookies ever baked, anywhere, by anybody. I'm not kidding.

I trust that you will find my family's favorites, becoming your favorites as well. Enjoy.

And you gotta try my 25 years' best cookies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Eats! January 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being from North Carolina, I miss good eats! So, I'm poking around in the cookbook section (where I spend a lot of time being on a diet and all) and find this fine little cookbook with recipes that remind me of home.

Thinking I might splurge on some Green Potatoes, I bought the cookbook only to find that the recipes are both delicious AND healthy. Some of these recipes really remind me of home, but without the massive calorie splurge that I'd normally find. It's especially nice that Debra has included some recipes that are vegetarian.

I'm enjoying this cookbook and I hope you will too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well...Not Really Amazing February 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not a southerner, so there may be some who feel I'm not qualified to review this. (I was born in Mobile, Alabama, though.)

The book claims to have 20 years' worth of recipes...and has 18 recipes. Many of them involve boneless, skinless chicken breasts, which don't strike me as a particularly Southern ingredient. One recipe calls for turkey breast and one is a fish recipe. No beef, no fried chicken, no ham, no pork, no bacon. No spoon bread. No biscuits. No cornbread.

I like zucchini in veggie quesadillas quite a bit myself, and it's a good suggestion...although again, quesadillas aren't what come to mind when I think of Southern cooking. Same for ziti, chicken Marsala, or eggplant Parmesan. Don't get me wrong - the recipes are generally fine (and very similar to ones I already have on file), but they aren't what I was expecting from a cookbook promising "Southern Flavors."

There is a reference to "cured" eggplant but the explanation and instructions don't appear until the end of the book. There are other problems with ingredients and instructions. One recipe says to spray the skillet with nonstick spray, then put olive oil in the pan and heat it. This seems to be overkill to me; I usually see one or the other used, but not both. Several questions were left unanswered - is a "large can" of tomato sauce bigger than the 8-ounce ones I have on hand? What size baking dish is recommended? What's a "spear" of broccoli? The main stalk with all the florets included? One of the smaller stalks? How much broccoli should be used? What does the asterisk after the eggs in the oatmeal pancake recipe indicate? Why is there no ginger in the gingerbread recipe?

The cookie recipe is indeed good - I've had it in my recipe file for years now, and it's a favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Flavors Cookbook Is Great!!! January 26, 2012
By Crystal
Format:Kindle Edition
"Southern Flavors | Southern Mom's Amazing Cookbook" by Debra Lynn starts out with a Table of Contents that makes my mouth water just by reading the recipe titles with a little description about each. I can't wait to get started making some of these - if not all of them. They all sound SO good.

If it's "down home cooking" that you're looking for, "Southern Flavors" is the recipe book that you want to get. There are main course recipes, dessert recipes, vegetarian recipes - you'll find 'em all right here. Pardon me, but I've got to hit the kitchen and make something really good from "Southern Flavors" for dinner tonight!

5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Cooking Improved! January 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OMG! The oatmeal chocolate chip cookies rock! They are awesome. As a Southerner, I am qualified to give an authentic review of these recipes. And I say they are definitely worth checking out. Her variations of classic Southern meals are fantastic.
