4.0 out of 5 stars Love This Book, May 30, 2010
This review is from: Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood: Stories and Recipes to Share with Family and Friends (Hardcover)
Unlike most of the reviewers here, I did not see "The View" and have actually never watched it. I volunteer at my local library and see many of the new books that come through. Being a cookbook lover, this one caught my eye as soon as I saw it. As I browsed through the book, I was instantly impressed with the beautiful photos of food and family. As I looked through the recipes, I saw many that I would love to try, as well as some that I would not make (but that is true with most cookbooks.) I love to eat and love to cook, but there are some food products that I do not eat such as pork products and hot or spicy foods. Nonetheless, I was interested in many of the recipes I saw and took the book home. Like some of the other reviewers, I had that "down home, good food and family" feeling as I enjoyed the stories and family memories. There was just enough information about each recipe to be interesting and memorable. I have only had the cookbook for 3 days and have made just one very simple recipe so far; the "Sweet and Saltines" which I plan to bring to a family party. Oh my goodness!! My husband and I ate a few to "sample" and they are addictive!! I did find that the caramel seeped through and coated the bottom of the crackers as well as the top, so I don't know if that is supposed to happen or not. I see no way to avoid that, for the gooey sauce will make its way through the crevices in the crackers while quickly heating up in the oven. I did find that these will melt and get soft if left out of the fridge for too long, so I have stored them in sealed containers in the fridge. After being in the fridge overnight, they were awesome the following day. This week I will be making the "Chicken Poppy Seed Salad" and "Uncle Wilson's Stuffed Peppers." One of the librarians shared that her mother made the "Key Lime Cake" for her birthday, saying it was the absolute best cake ever and that I would be the "hit of the party" if I brought it to an upcoming family function. Key lime pie is one of my all time favorite desserts, so I will definitely be making this cake soon. I will be purchasing this cookbook for my own collection.

Regarding the Sweet and saltines (or as my family calls it "crack" lol) yes, it is supposed to seep through or around. All the more for yumminess!
