Format: Hardcover
Compiling all 900 of the recipes from its monthly magazine from 2005 into one volume, Southern Living features seasonal and traditional southern recipes which will appeal to food lovers from around the country. Collard greens, black-eyed peas, hush puppies, and hoppin' john share space with other southern specialties like Chocolate Red Velvet Cake (made with two bottles of red food coloring), congealed salads, a variety of biscuits, and some of the best pies and cakes imaginable. The editors also feature Tex-Mex, Italian, Greek, and Cajun cooking, however, along with a variety of menus for the barbecue, grill, and smoker, broadening the scope (and audience) for their well-tested recipes, which are often accompanied by gorgeous photographs.

The recipes run the gamut from family favorites to "fast fixin's," make ahead meals, freezable desserts and entrees, and "light and healthy" fare, though this latter feature is small compared to the number of luscious, full-fat recipes. Nutritional information is provided for only a handful of recipes--the "light and healthy" ones--so those on lowfat diets will have to read carefully to figure out for themselves what the saturated fat content is for the other recipes and/or what substitutions can be made.

Full menus for holidays, company dinners, picnics, barbecues, and brunches take the guesswork out of planning for big events, providing the busy host or hostess with reliable and tasty main courses, salads, appetizers, and desserts. Indexed by recipe titles, month-by-month specialties, ingredients, and topics (beverages, breads, salads, etc.), the book also has bonus sections of the 2005 Cook-Off Winners and Editors' Favorites, along with highlighted helpful hints and cook's notes regarding procedures.

The recipies in these Southern Living cookbooks are pretty good for the most part, but the organization is a disaster. No sections for types of recipies, such as cakes, vegetables, meat, they just put it all together in "menus" which you then have to read through to find anything. Too much work, its almost an accident when I actually find what I'm looking for. I'm glad I bought them used so that the price was about right for what they are.

I used to purchase these directly from Southern Living but get them substantially cheaper from Amazon. Thanks. Book was delivered as promised. This was the only one I was missing!

I received this cookbook as a gift about a year ago. It honestly set on the shelf for months before I really looked at it. I do not read Southern Living magazine and I usually do not like recipes in magazines in general. These recipes are not what you usually see in magazines. All the ones I have tried are very suitable for cooking at home. For the most part the recipes call for everyday ingredients that are easily found in your regular grocery store. It is divided into months of the year, so that's handy for incorporating seasonal produce. I like how recipes are grouped together so all the recipes you would want for a meal are next to each other on the same page. You may like this or not. Another reviewer mentioned that it was hard to find something specific and that is true. However the general index isn't bad as most recipes are listed by their name and their main ingredient. There is also a month-by-month index which seems like a waste of space since it is in the same order as the book itself.

I own all of the Southern Living Annuals.

Every year contains a great collection of tested recipes. This volume has about 900, earlier volumes contained about 1,200 recipes. In the early 2000s the format of the annuals changed slightly. All of the books contain every recipe published for the calendar year. In previews years because there were several hundred more recipes when they reprinted the articles they did not include any of the photos or diagrams that were included in the issue of the magazine. With fewer recipes they now include diagrams and photos in many of the articles.There are several pages of color photos but there are not photos of most of the dishes. In previous editions most , if not all of the recipes, were submitted by readers and then tested and rewritten for clarity before publication. As the test kitchen has grown at Southern Living fewer recipes are submitted by readers ( in the 2014 edition, I noticed none of the recipes were submitted by readers with the exception of a few recipes from bloggers). while every recipe I have made from Southern Living has been a winner I do miss that home cook- to home cook feel that the recipes had in earlier years.

The annuals are printed month by month, which makes it easy to find what is in season and the indexes are easy to use if you are looking to make something specific. The recipes are both on trend food wise and never lose sight of traditional southern food, a hard blance but they pull it off year after year.

I still buy every annual and I use them with great regularity. Many of the sides I serve at holidays came from the pages of Southern Living and it is a resource I recommend to anyone looking for some inspired recipe ideas. For years I subscribed to the magazine and purchased the annual. For the past ten years or so I have just purchased the annual. The reduction in the number of recipes made it easy for me to reduce my expenses and paper waste and cancel my subscription.
