About the Author
I have always loved to cook and have had the pleasure of starting many friends and family on their path to find their "inner cook". I catered for a company that produced television commercials until a job transfer moved me to another city and have written local cookbooks for years. I had not given much thought to producing cookbooks for a larger audience until Amazon came along. I now have the time to devote to the projects and it is going to be a blast.

The Italian Stew, Minestrone Soup and Navy Beans with Greens Soup recipes looked really good to me. There is a great section on Goodies to add to Salad. An excellent Basic Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe with suggestions to spice it up. The cooking tips section includes an excellent tip on cleaning leeks which are difficult to clean properly. I cook and am always learning new techniques and tips. Not being the most organized guy, the work area organization tips will be especially useful to me.
Whether you are an experienced cook or just beginning, there is something for everyone in this book. I highly recommend it.
The book includes recipes for classics like Chicken Noodle and Minestrone, but also recipes for soups/stews such as Navy Been and Greens, Oyster Stew and Lethal Weapon Chili. Also included in this cookbook are some wonderful salad recipes. To make sure I get it right, she kindly included cooking tips and techniques too.
This is a terrific cookbook and I am very glad I own it! I will be using it often!
What did I like about this cookbook?
- She emphasizes creating soups from scratch AND freezing stocks and the basics so it's quick to create new soups. I love her economy in terms of cooking a big batch of starter and freezing some of it for later.
- She un-apologetically uses bacon drippings (while giving options to do without). That adds a delightful taste to the soups.
- She includes nutritional information
- She has real, interesting southern cooking which tastes great!
I enjoyed this cookbook.
But I was quickly running out of soup and salad ideas, especially soups that I could freeze, because I really do not have the time to cook up a broth every day.
I was very impressed with the book. There is a great choice to choose from. But more than that, I love it when you can read and feel passion about food in a cook book. Sounds obvious but I sometimes get the feel that people just throw together recipes as part of a conveyor belt 9-5 job.
Not so with Katherine the author. She knows her soups and salads, but really wants to help you make them 'as good as it gets' if you know what I mean.
The tips section for each recipe is useful, but the tips section at the back of the book gives the book another great little extra, and there are some gems in there (well for me anyway).
Most of the recipes are within my 'skill' level, the few that look a bit more complicated I will try as the author promises that I will be well rewarded for my efforts. Great book, thank you.
I know I'm going to try the Rustic Black Bean Chili, even though I doubt it will snow any time soon in the desert of southern Arizona (They say it's their... "go-to dish for snow days"). I enjoy all those spicy (pun) tidbits that the author sprinkles through out the cookbooks.
It's a good soup and salad recipe cookbook. Follow this advice => get the "I'll Have the Soup and Salad" book.
