BETTER THAN HER FIRST COOKBOOK,
This review is from: Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood: Stories and Recipes to Share with Family and Friends (Hardcover)
I WENT TO MY LOCAL BOOK STORE AND LOOKED AT THIS BOOK. I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK AND THE RECIPE'S. THE BOOK HAD SOME SUPER RECIPE'S THAT I WANT TO TRY. INFACT, I MADE THE ASPARAGUS BUNDLES AND THEY WERE VERY GOOD. HER COOKING IS PRETTY BASIS, WHICH IS THE SOUTHERN WAY. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR UNUSUAL RECIPE'S, THIS PROBABLY ISN'T FOR YOU. HER FIRST COOKBOOK IS REALLY, REALLY BASIS. I LOOKED AT HER FIRST COOKBOOK AND DECIDED IT'S FOR NEW COOKS. I PREFERRED THIS BOOK "HOME COOKING".

It sounds like you really like this cookbook, but still only gave it a 3. I disagree about southern cooking being basic. I think you are kind of generalizing. There are a lot of really good basic recipes that are pretty in all kinds of cuisine.

That is my opinion of the book. I bought the book BECAUSE it had very simple recipes. I cook many recipes that are complicated, these are not.
My opinion is that 3 out of 5 stars is pretty good. In my opinion (being from the South) that Southern cooking is basic, down home cooking. That describes this book exactly.
