I've owned this book for over five years, and it is best cookbook I own. Recipes are well-tested, don't cost very much to make, use readily available ingredients, and many are simple enough to make for weeknight suppers. I recommend the chicken gumbo, the Carter Hill barbeque ribs, the eggplant casserole, the yam pork chop skillet, the Jamaican bannana cake, and the honey crunch pecan pie. I recommend this cookbook as a gift for college students because the recipes are easy and delicious.

I keep this book in my kitchen. I do so because I often use it for the biscuit recipe and also when I'm making out my food shopping list and I need ideas on what to cook. I also read this book while I'm in my kitchen "watching a pan". The stories in this book are most entertaining and help the time fly by. It's not the best soul food cookbook I've ever owned (that would be Patti Labelle's cookbook), but it is certainly in the top five. Especially for the new soul food cook, this book is a good investment.

Format: Paperback
The Black Family Reunion Cookbook came just in time for my own family reunion this past weekend - July 4, 2005. It's an excellent choice for newcomers or oldheads like myself. It takes you back to the good days when your mother was in the kitchen whipping up a delicious peach cobbler or some tasty macaroni and cheese. I just loved this! Every single recipe took me back to my youth. It was funny running across dishes that I had forgotten about. Whether you're African American or Hispanic, you will love this cookbook!! Highly recommended to the world of book lovers

Rolanda,

I have had this book for over 10 years, and I'm white. I bought this book when I was dating a black (african american) guy and wanted to cook him the foods that he liked. I still refer to it from time to time, but the best recipe is the macaroni and cheese. I get so many compliments when I make it for family dinners and potlucks, and everyone asks me for the recipe.

I've had this book for several years now and I it is one of my favorites. Since I started making the Macaroni and Cheese Deluxe, it is expected that I make it for every family gathering, which is great because it is so easy to make and so delicious!
