Review

“ ‘Be the Change, indeed! This inspirational story makes me proud of the new South. The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook is packed with down-home comfort recipes, as well as modern takes on traditional Southern ingredients. Magnificent color photos, detailed, helpful tips, and cheerful stories make this a welcome newcomer to the cookbook library.
Virginia Willis, author of Bon Appetit, Y’all and Basic to Brilliant, Y’all
 
The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook is charming. Alexe and Dixie share, so openheartedly, the story of one little market, and by doing so give readers a chance to revel in a rural small-town revival. Hoop and Havarti Macaroni, Sweet Potato and Green Chile Casserole, Peach Icebox Pies—the recipes inspire home cooks to remember the classics they cherish and draw their loved ones around the table for good, old-fashioned conversation.”
Martha Hall Foose, author of Screen Doors and Sweet Tea and A Southerly Course

I enjoy cookbooks that have stories to accompany the recipes.
Suzanne Anderson
I wouldn’t say this book is a “healthy” cookbook if that is what you are looking for but I believe if you love good southern cooking you will love this cookbook.

My usual practice with most cookbook reviews is to actually make several recipes from the book rather than simply say that they sound good. As it happens, The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from a Southern Revival arrived on my doorstep just as I was spending several more days in the hospital and packing to move, so the recipes that I tried were both simple and relatively familiar. Results were mixed.

TEST RECIPE #1 - SAUSAGE GRAVY

I am a Southern Girl, even though I live in Vermont, raised on gravy. Sawmill gravy, Sausage Gravy, Dried Beef Gravy . . . my Northern Grandma even made a version with hamburger. This is comfort food at its very best, quick and easy to make, very economical, easily stretched to feed a crowd. I make a mean skillet of Sausage Gravy, even if I do say so myself, a recipe that has been a favorite no matter where I've lived for more than 50 years. Sausage Gravy is simple - sausage, flour, salt, pepper and milk. The secret to great gravy is in the sausage and not all sausage is created equal by very long shot. So, I was surprised when a friend & fellow cookbook aficionado mentioned to me that she had passed on The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from a Southern Revival specifically because of the recipe for Sausage Gravy - and that is exactly the reason that I didn't.

I served up B.T.C.'s version of Sausage Gravy for Sunday Morning brunch to my daughter and her hubby, who loves nothing better for breakfast than Sausage Gravy.

This luscious cookbook is strictly for the mom with time on her hands or for the weekend cook. The recipes are for food that is hearty, tasty, and even decadent. However, most of the recipes in this book take a long time to prep and cook!

The resident soon-to-be six-year-old and I started with one of the easiest recipes in the book - the Chess Pie. It had the fewest ingredients, and aside from the oven time, was pretty quick to cook and prep. I was a bit surprised that the recipe calls for a store-bought pie crust, but it does reference a page to go to if you want to prepare a homemade crust.

My daughter loved making the pie and, when in the oven, the most delicious smells were filling the kitchen. We took it over to her grandparent's house and that pie was devoured in short order. Not only was it delicious, but they've requested another!

We also tried the grits. Now, the grits take about an hour to cook. That's a long time, so we reserved that for the weekend. In spite of the time involved, the prep was easy, and those grits were delicious! I'll make them again, but only when I have that much time before the little one is clamoring for breakfast.

Finally, we tried the Coke Gumbo. Okay, that's not what it's called, but it should be! In spite of this unusual ingredient, the Gumbo was good. Now, it's doesn't taste like Creole Gumbo (my mother is Creole and pronounced it good, but not authentic!), but it was good.

As time allows, we'll try more of the recipes, but many of them have an astounding number of ingredients and will take a lot of time that this working mom just doesn't have each day.

A very good cookbook, written by people who know and care about good food. I was very impressed with their versions of old favorites. The use of herbs is excellent. The stories about the food are lovely.

"The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery" cookbook begins with the inspiring story of how it all began in a small town that was loved as the authors describe it in 'Knowing & Remembering.' The store, an old 2 story brick building had lots to offer, and everyone knew about everyone who lived in the town. The store began as a family business, and became a landmark in that town.

Along with its interesting history of the store, this fantastic book offers: Breakfast; Soups For Every Season; Salads; Spreads; Sandwiches; Casseroles; Mains; Sides; and more. Thus far, we made the Italian Chef Salad, and the Banana Pudding. Both were delicious, and we will make them again.

Some of the Desserts include: Fried Pies; Sweet Potato Pie; Key Lime Pie; Tea Cakes, and several more selections. My daughter's next selection is the Charlie Brown Cookies, and mine is the Sweet Potato Casserole With Marshmallows And Coconut Crumble. Just reading the recipes makes your mouth water, and the colorful photos are inviting, and inspiring. We will leave updates with new recipes we make. A great addition to my cookbook collection, and a wonderful gift for friends and family on special occasions. Highly recommended!

So much more than 'just' a cookbook, "The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook" is filled with stories and history, some that just make you laugh out loud! I love the tidbits at the beginning of the recipes. Some of us ladies were chatting during potluck at church Sunday about dressing vs. stuffing, and I had to share from this book. All the Southerners fully agreed that it's cornbread dressing (NOT stuffing) and it never goes inside the bird!

There are so many great recipes in this book, many of which I grew up on. I love Chess Pie and while this recipe will make a good pie, I recommend switching the tablespoon of flour to cornmeal (straight cornmeal, not the cornmeal mix) and adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. I know, I know. Vinegar in a pie? Trust me on this one, it's fabulous! So many classic Southern recipes are in here such as Red-Eye Gravy, Apple Salad, Red-Rind Pimento Cheese, Cornbread Dressing and Fried Pies. I grew up on Fried Dried Apple Pies. My mom would dry apples in the summer, and then all through the fall and winter, she would take some out, cook them with her own concoction of spices and sugar and fill the pies with that. Oh, my! Part of me feels like that's the only real fried pie, but part of me is definitely wanting to try her recipe for peach pies! Along with some old favorites are some newer recipes that definitely weren't on our table growing up, but sound great such as Roasted Fennel Mashed Potatoes, Crab-Meat Stuffed Mushrooms, and Watermelon Salad with Feta.

The only drawbacks I found in this book is some of the recipes have a lot of ingredients (for instance, her recipe for sausage gravy has 14 ingredients. I'm a bit of a purist in some things, and this would be one of them.
