Format: Hardcover
Now, this is my idea of a cookbook! Four hundred recipes culled from several thousand community cookbooks, which are an excellent source for "real" recipes, as opposed to the elitist, artsy concoctions of chefs in expensive restaurants. I.e., this is the sort of regional comfort food I not only like to eat, but am also capable of preparing: Peach Cobbler, Pecan Pie, Country-Fried Steak, Honey-Baked Chicken, and all that good stuff. On the other hand, I'm really not an okra person (my wife is), and I have no use at all for greens of any kind. But you'll also find Curried Chicken Salad, Three-Pepper Frittata, Orange Hummus here, none of which I would consider "Southern." The Beer and Tomato Hush Puppies turned out really good, and so did the idea of making French toast with English muffins (never thought of that). Shrimp Manale (with garlic and white wine) is a very simple dish, but excellent, and the Catfish Classique, made with vermouth, whipping cream, and chopped scallions, was a very interesting take on a South Louisiana staple. I don't know about making "quick" beignets from frozen dinner rolls, though. I got this book from the library, but I think I'm going to have to buy my own copy.

Format: Hardcover
This Southern Living Cookbook is unique and a must have because it's a volume of "400 Best Recipes" chosen from over 4,000 Southern Community Cookbooks (SL tested/tasted & approved). Plus, there's no "duplication" of recipes from other SL cookbooks, which you sometimes find if you collect them like I do.
I think this is truly one of the "most southern" SL cookbooks I've seen. It's a treasure of recipes you'll remember from your childhood, or what I affectionately call "Grandma Recipes". The recipes are timeless and never disappoint!
There's "comfort food", "sweet southern goodies", "quick and easy homestyle", "tastes like fried/but it's not" selections and more. One of my favorites is the chapter highlighting "10 Stellar Southern Favorites". The "Healthy Homestyle Cooking" Chapter provides nutritional analysis for each recipe, which I appreciated. Yet, I wish each recipe included this information. Despite that, it's a cookbook I highly recommend, enjoy tremendously and politely won't loan out!:)

Here's another Southern Living cookbook you can't live without. The recipes are gathered from regular folks and aren't overly difficult to prepare. However, they taste as if you've been in the kitchen for days. They're really that good. This book made me really want to take up cooking further and since I bought this book, that's what I've been doing. Their desserts are outstanding and the main dishes are just wonderful. I can't say enough good about this book - just buy it for whomever you need it for and you'll be on their best friend list!

I have done several of the recipes in the short month I have had the book and find the recipes easy to follow. In addition, I get rave reviews of my cooking form everyone when I make one of these. The picture of the cover cake should speak for itself. This is a keeper!

I am not one for following recipes very well, but this book has some amazingly short and simple instructions and I find that I can follow them to a tee.

Many of my childhood favorites are here and some fresh creative versions are included as well. This is a must for anyone who loves Southern cooking or food in general!

My cookbook collection has swelled to over 125 books. For growing lack of space, I made a resolution to feed my love of cookbooks with trips to the library and checkout books so that I could try them out and only buy the ones that I really love. This "Southern Living Homestlye Cooking" book was the first book I checked out. I began to bookmark all the recipes that sounded wonderful to me and soon found that I had chosen about 20 recipes in my first pass! I wanted some new ideas for a Christmas party I was planning. People are still raving about the Salmon with Tomatoes, Basil and Capers recipe I got from the book. Simple, fresh ingredients were combined for perfect success. This is what this book is all about for me. It has become one of my absolute favorites.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My first encounter with this cookbook was an ad SL sent my way advertising the new cookbook. BECAUSE of the picture on the cover, the delicious looking chocolate cake, I ordered one. This was a birthday present for my neice, who loves to cook. She made the cake for her hubby's birthday. It is as delicious as it looks. I called SL to order another book for my daughter in New Orleans. They were on back order. They had already sold out, because of the picture on the cover. I finally got the second book. My daughter got to enjoy it a couple of years before Katrina took it away. I've found it again for her and now one for me too! It really is the prettiest cover I've seen on a cookbook. I liked what the other fans wrote,minus one. I can ditto it all,minus one.

This is an excellent cookbook put together by Southern Living. I love many of the Southern Living cookbooks, but this is by far the best that I have used. It is well-organized, and has many great recipes for every day kind of cooking, as well as some more entertaining-type cooking.
