Oh, YUM! Best purchase ever and amazing recipes - BLT hash browns are my favorite. Southern soul food - I'm starving just thinking about it. What's nice is that it includes a picture of what you're cooking because, as we know, a picture speaks a thousand words. I can tell a lot about the dish from the picture. The print is big enough to actually read (go figure!), nice slick pages that won't get gross, and not a bunch of filler and chatter, so more room for recipes! 150 recipes! Going to fry some catfish now.

It's not often that I pick up a cookbook and read it cover-to-cover, but that's exactly what I did after I purchased my copy of Southern Living author Morgan Murphy's Off the Eaten Path. It was a quick read, full of Southern humor that made me laugh. I was proud to see Southern Hands, a great restaurant just a few miles from my house, featured in the book -- and even more thrilled that the author was able to convince the owner to give up her famous cornbread recipe. I've driven to Southern Hands JUST to pick up some of that delicious cornbread! Now, I can also bake it in my home. I'm also grateful that Southern Living published the book in full color with photos -- making it as much a recipe/travel book as a lovely coffee table book. I plan to buy this book for Christmas gifts for my Southern friends who have moved too far north to get any fried pickles or bacon bourbon. Well done!

Love this Cookbook. It's filled with good old fashioned down home Southern recipes, and the pictures to go along with it. If you've ever stopped at out of the way diners, and loved their food, then this is the book for you.

nice to have the location of all these "off the road" eateries, but was very disappointed in the selection of the recipes....if you are buying for recipe potential....don't purchase,otherwise, at least you have some great locations to find and enjoy

I purchased this cookbook as a gift for my mother. She has a vast collection of cookbooks but nothing quite like this. She absolutely loved it. Bonus was one of the featured places in the book is minutes from her house. We loved it so much we ordered 2 more for additional gifts. I highly recommend this book.

I actually ordered this for our RV travels but found it so enjoyable that i read the whole thing as soon as i received it. the pictures are just great and in color making it a real cut above average. it is a fun book with wonderful recipes and information for off the beaten path travels. We will have it in the RV with us when we leave in two weeks and then it will go back in my kitchen cookbook library. a gem! It was advertised in an email from Coastal Living so i ordered it immediately from Amazon.

Of course, you would expect some "keepers" in a book about special, local restaurant "gems" in the South. If you get this book, you will have to read through it and mark the best recipes, because they are listed--not by category--but as in a travelogue. You'll need some reminder that they are in there somewhere.

What I especially liked about it, was some of the interesting ingredients used (I don't mean exotic or unfamiliar) to create pies, batters, coatings, etc. It does provide inspiration.

It might be a good idea to borrow this from the library before purchasing. It's more of a fun book than one you'll turn to again and again. It's not one that will get dog-eared from use.

Off the Beaten Path is a great book to sit down and read through. Also has some very good recipes. Brought back a few memories as I read about a few restaurants that I had either heard of or visited at sometime in my life. Delightful
