I am also sort of fond of the earlier publications, as they have the classic 'church cookbook' binding which neatly lays flat on the table as you have both hands full with spatula and measuring spoon.
So, let the buyer beware of this REPRINT! To Paula's credit, she is not hiding this fact, but, as with Mark Bittman's reprinted volumes, it is easy to be too eager for a new volume from a favorite author and leap before looking.
Checked out the table of contents and the introduction - the recipes look delicious and I'll enjoy eating them while someone else prepares them! The best of both worlds!
Mrs Paula....."illegitimi non carborundum"
**Please note that there are not any photos...But then , when combining two volumes, I doubt that Paula had any room or money left to fit-in tons of photos too!
Recipes are very easy to duplicate. Paula's writing style if fun to read.
PS: Please note that Paula loves butter. Those of us that watch her TV show know this, as she is very open about her "love of butter". So plz do expect that many of Paula's recipes include butter. However, if you are watching your weight and counting your fat intake, I would advise to just cut the butter portions ,and that Paula's recipes will still hold-up well.(I've tried this method and it works).
For those of you that love butter and are thin enough to be able to eat it often, then this cook-book will not alter your regular cooking style.
Either way I think that any cook will find this cookbook helpful!
1. There are no pictures that accompany any of her recipes, and that is a huge disappointment to me. I like to be able to see what a finished product looks like. Maybe not so much for a simple recipe, but one that requires several steps to assemble deserves a photo to make sure that we are all on the same page when the recipe is complete. On the plus side, she does include photos of her wedding and some of the events leading up to her wedding, and they were fun to see.
2. She took two older cookbooks and made them in to one very long book. While that is not such a bad idea, what I did not like is that she did not combine the books to make it easier to follow. For example, she has her first cookbook called "The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook" in the first half of the book, and everything is organized according to food category--appetizers, soups and salads, main courses, side dishes, breads, and desserts and you think "great!" I will just browse through this section to find whatever dish it is I want to make from that category. For example, I was looking for an appetizer recipe to take to a party, so I looked through that section from pages 9-24. But hold on--there are more appetizer selections and they are in the second half of the book from the cookbook titled "The Lady and Sons Too!" and now you flip to pages 185-202 to find another batch of recipes.Read more ›
