I have several Southern Living cookbooks including several years of the annual editions and the 20th anniversary edition. This is by far my favorite. The recipes are grouped by category rather than month as in the annual editions which I hate, it makes it hard to browse for a dinner recipe. One of the best things about this book is it has recipes for everyone from the beginner to the advanced chef. I can't name the number of times I have used the reference sections also. The substitution list is the best and I love the introductions and tips listed all over the book. Where the annual editions are really geared towards an experienced chef this book has so many basic tips that I would strongly recommend it for a beginning chef as well.

Honestly, I have never purchased something that I have been so thrilled with as I have this cookbook. It has everything you can imagine in it, including helpful tips, substitutions, etc., and appeals to cooks of all types. It makes a superior wedding shower gift and an awesome Christmas gift for anyone. It's for the novice and the expert as well. And boy, you just don't get any better than this when it comes to the recipes. Oh my, that sweet potato casserole in this book is just outstanding! Folks could not keep away from it during a holiday gathering and it was the first thing gone! It's that amazing and that good! Everything I've tried in this book (and I've tried a chunk) has been incredible. You can't go wrong in any way buying this book for yourself or anyone. It's that amazing and you really need to have it in your collection.

This book is truly a comprehensive collection of recipes. I work as a home economist, and this book contains most of the recipes that the public requests. It sits on my desk with my "easy-to-reach" references. As is typical of Southern Living cookbooks, recipes are presented in an easy-to-read, organized format that makes cooking a pleasure, even for the novice. I give this cookbook as a gift for weddings, graduations, and housewarmings. One of the best I've ever run across in my work. I have my own copy as well.

I love and collect cookbooks, and as much as I have learned from Julia Child and the delightfully over-the-top Paul Prudhomme, this is the one I turn to over and over again for both special occasions and regular evening meals. There is such a wide variety of choices in this book- not just southern classics like Country Captain and Hummingbird cake, but excellent quesadillas, scampi, and teryaki beef sticks, and stardards like peanut butter cookies, all in one book. I haven't found a bad recipe yet, and I've tried a lot! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys having people LOVE what they cooked!

This book is incredible! I highly recommend it to experienced cooks and new ones. I purchased my copy directly from Oxford House, but my friend just had to have a copy. Just about everything is in here. All cooks should have this book. Anybody who THINKS (s)he's a cook should have this book.

When our brother Jeff and his wife Jodie raved about the "Ultimate" cookbook we knew we had to check it out. They both are cookbook afficianados so when they claimed this was the "one cookbook you must have" we ordered it from Amazon.com. They were absolutely right! It contains wonderful recipes: the best of everything (except for the missing Dieter-Bryce breakfast sausage muffins) and each recipe is perfectly explained. It's a "must have"!

After living in the heart of the Smokeys for two years while in college, I became a devotee of southern cooking. In an effort to reconnect with the southern way of life, I have subscribed to Southern Living for many years. This cookbook is a wonderful distillation of the lore, methodology and flavors that make southern cooking so compelling. It is wonderfully made and photographed. It not only contains all of the essential recipes in a southern cook's repertoire, but includes a great deal of basic cooking information, instruction and general information. It would be a great gift for a new bride or anyone just learning to cook. Don't hesitate!

This is by far the most comprehensive, helpful, pretty, and best basic cookbook with a contemporary flare that I have seen. The recipes are new and elegant, yet simple and "doable." The tips cover a full gamut of needs from the novice to the experienced - use of herbs, food presentation, garnishes, wines, etc. The calories, fat content, etc., assigned to the recipes is very helpful for those watching weight. An excellent addition to any cookbook library and at more than reasonable price.

This book is excellent for recipe content and photography of recipes. Each recipe I have tried so far is delicious. I have collected Southern Living recipe books for years and this the best one.
