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.

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!

"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!
