About the Author

Marian Cooper-Cairns first appeared in the pages of Southern Living magazine at the ripe old age of eight, holding a homemade popsicle made in a Dixie cup. Fast forward a few decades later, and she's on staff as a food stylist in the Southern Living Test Kitchens. With a background in fine art photography, she decided to follow in the footsteps of her mother, former test kitchen alumna, and attend culinary school. She is a graduate of Texas Culinary Academy in Austin with a degree in Culinary Arts and has successfully merged her two passions of imagery and food into a unique career. Her work can also be seen in Cooking Light, Coastal Living, Design*Sponge and the recently published cookbook Southern Plate. She is a self described chronic dinner party planner and an aspiring beer nerd. Her favorite southern foods are okra, breakfast tacos, and pretty much anything that involves pork.

This book is a wonderful feel good book. The recipes are all very basic; don't go here looking for new trendy recipes.

This is a wonderful "picture" book -- great eye candy. The pages are made to look old and yellowed, or tea stained....great fun to go through. Pictures from Southern Living Mazagine as far back as the 60's. I love looking at the pictures of how we entertained 50 years ago!

I love this book -- pure nostalgia.

I think I honestly picked up this cookbook because I love the cover, and the pictures are beautiful inside. This cookbook is nostalgic in every way for me, because there are so many recipes I remember my grandmother making in my younger years. I've made quite a few recipes already from this cookbook, and not one of them was a disappointment. If you love Southern food, with a good story thrown in every now and then, this cookbook is for you.

Recipes I've Made:

Refreshing Lemonade - 5/5
Guacamole - 5/5
Favorite Southern Cornbread - 5/5
Refrigerator Bran Muffins - 4/5 (This recipe does need more spices, but it is still a wonderful recipe. Perfect for freezing!)
Biscuits and Sausage Gravy - 5/5
Dixie Fried Chicken - 5/5
Pepper Steak - 5/5 (Surprisingly made with chuck roast, and it was good!)
Bev's Famous Meatloaf - 4.5/5 (There's brown sugar in the ketchup topping, making it too sweet for my tastes, but still amazing.)
Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes - 3.5/5 (Might be better with cheddar cheese, but it was still decent with swiss and parmesan.)
Chicken Divan - 5/5 (I was skeptical, but it turned out so yummy. Served with rice.)
Chicken-Wild Rice Casserole - 10/5 (By far our favorite meal, my husband wanted me to make every day for a week. Only used half of the mushrooms.)
Red Beans and Rice - 3.5/5 (Not a horrible meal, but it was a little bland.)
Cola Cake - 5/5 (My mom went crazy over this cake, saying it was the best she ever had. Very moist.)

There are still so many recipes I would love to make, so this is only the beginning. If you buy this book, I don't think you will be disappointed. So, what are you waiting for?

This isn't just a cookbook--it's a collection of essays and stories from various Southern cooks as they recall favorite recipes and traditions passed down in their family. It includes lots of old photos from vintage Southern Living magazines. One good feature at the end of each chapter is a recipe given as "Mom's Way" along with a shorter alternative called "Your Way." Any avid cook or fan of SL will enjoy this book.

I ordered this cookbook for myself and one for my Mom for Christmas. I sat yesterday and looked at it cover to cover and what a wonderful book - I came back on to Amazon to order another, one for my niece for Christmas. It's a compilation of old favorites and they are some great old favorites! The pages are done to look like an "heirloom" cookbook. They look like you inherited this book only in perfect condition! There are pictures of some of the old Southern Living covers, there are stories from different contributors of the book, there are old family snapshots from holidays, you name it this book has it if you are looking for the wonderful nostalgia of times being about family and food. In my mind, it brought me right back to my Granny's house on a Sunday. I had gotten fresh peas in the morning from the farmers' market so I made the spoon bread recipe to go with them, a little BBQ pork roast and fresh farm tomatoes. It just doesn't get any better in a cookbook if it can inspire you to get right up and make one of the recipes!!!

I gave this book as a gift to my sister, who collects cookbooks. It was an ideal gift. She was very pleased. For an "Heirloom" book it certainly has an old-timey feel. The book features the most requested and popular recipes through the years at Southern Living. So the trip down memory lane is fun if you've followed the books or magazine. Also, this cookbook is fun to read for the backstories as well as the usually familiar recipes. It especially makes a nice addition to those collecting the Southern Living annual cookbooks.

One rating said the recipes were dated............well, that's why it's called Heirloom..DUH
I love this book, and have been using Southern Living for years. I feel as though I have found long lost recipes from my childhood. On Kindle, it works great, not a single problem. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to cook. Beautifully done with little stories from the past. I think I'll go make a mint julip :-)

Excellent condition! Great price! It covered the regions and the decades of food beautifully. I love to travel
"back in time" and eat the foods that I remember (or have forgotten) and some from my grandmothers era, but never knew how she prepared them!
