I don't normally buy items for a policical statement but this time I have. Paula has freedom of speech and I have the power of the buck. Today I bought this book AND a box of cheerios (in support of their ad that contains a mixed race marriage). Time for American to grow up beyond the age of ten years old, get over the polical correctness crap and get on with life.

EVERY recipe we (my wife and I) have used from Paula's book has never failed to make us look at each other, smile, and say "WOW, this is GOOD".

Highly recommended! We love you, Paula!

Like the last reviewer (Sher) I have purchased this book in support of Paula Deen, who has been made a scapegoat by the American public. What really gets me is the hypocrisy behind it all! We've all made mistakes, stuck our foot in our mouths, said things we wished we hadn't, wishing we'd lived up to our better selves. I don't care if she is a public figure, she's human for God's sake! We are all "public figures" in the sense that we have a circle of influence that affects the larger world and we don't really know how that influence ripples out to affect strangers. Since there seems to be a double-standard for the use of the "N" word, maybe we need a rule book on its use: e.g., whites can't use it because they have to be politically correct at all times, blacks can use it among themselves, wealthy film producers can use it and make lots of money (they get a free pass). What? No rule book? That's silly? Well then, why don't we just nix the word and be a little kinder to one another!

Also, I loved the Cheerios mixed race commercial, and I think Sher had a great idea: I'm going to buy Cheerios as well - AND donate a bunch of boxes to the local food bank!

Paula is a sinner and a lady ...and I love her. A person who throws stones at her misses the point. Paula is a REAL person.....and she is anything but a racist. I am a liberal Democrat...and Paula Deen is being falsely attacked. Her books are as great as she is.

I am a Southern-raised transplant to California and also not a cook. But I bought this book so that I'd have a compendium of Southern recipies to share with my California-native wife. About a year ago, I visited Paula Deen's Savannah restaurant, The Lady & Sons, and absolultely loved the food. No other celebrity chef is more closely identified with Southern cooking than the highly-commercialized Deen, so I'm accepting her authority for this "bible."

This is only the 2nd or 3rd cookbook I've ever bought in my life, so I don't have much to compare it to. But the book does what it promises and lives up to its title. After a 5-page introduction from Deen about the history and variety of Southern cuisine, the book has over 20 well-organized chapters, each specifically separated by type of dish. Most recipes take up one full page, although a few are half-a-page and others 2 pages. Some recipies have diagrams to explain certain techniques. Almost every recipe has either a "tip" from Paula that explains a particularly significant part of the recipe or offers a substitution that might suit alternative tastes. The instructions are easy-to-understand and very direct.

The recipies are not accompanied with photos of each dish. There are two sections of color photos which depict a small number of the finished dishes (with references to the page number of the corresponding recipe). This is one criticism I have of the book - I would have preferred a thicker book with glossy paper and a color photo of each completed dish on the same page as the recipe.

The book is well-made - with standard hardcover cookbook binding that makes it easy to lay open to a specific page in the kitchen. There is a standard book jacket that wouldn't withstand moisture.

I was given this as a gift as a friend of mine knows I grew up in the South and have been on the look out for a good southern cooking book (not very common here in England). I've only tried a handful of recipes and they are good, but I have 2 big complaints, so I took off a star for each:

1) No pictures. I know it sounds remedial, but it's nice to have an idea of what your dish should look like by the end. Also if you're serving for others, the presentation of dishes in images often give me ideas about how I want to put final touches on things. Unfortunately, I'm not imaginative enough to come up with great presentation on my own
2) There's not a lot of variety between some dishes. Some just seem like variations on a theme rather than brand new recipes

Despite this, I would still recommend the book to anyone who is either new to southern cooking or just wants a nice collection of southern recipes as there are some nice staples here.

I have a lot of cookbooks and don't necessarily need another one, but if this is one way that I can show a little support for Paula Deen, then it is time and money well spent. Please understand my support is in no way in regards to what word she may have used or how she used it, but for the fact she finds herself in a media storm and in a position to lose a great deal of money due to "political correctness." She took the high road and answered a question honestly and because of that has been labeled by many as a racist that should be punished and made an example of for all to see. I admire her honesty and her response to the situation and wish her success. I have canceled my subscription to the Food Network magizine and have no intention of ever buying products by Smithfield Foods again. Last time I checked freedom of speech was still protected by the United States Constitution and if people don't like what I have to say then they are free to disagree or not listen, otherwise I have no problem letting them know exactly what they can do with their buttered biscuit!
