About the Author
Marian Cooper-Cairns first appeared in the pages of Southern Living magazine at the ripe old age of eight, holding a homemade popsicle made in a Dixie cup. Fast forward a few decades later, and she's on staff as a food stylist in the Southern Living Test Kitchens. With a background in fine art photography, she decided to follow in the footsteps of her mother, former test kitchen alumna, and attend culinary school. She is a graduate of Texas Culinary Academy in Austin with a degree in Culinary Arts and has successfully merged her two passions of imagery and food into a unique career. Her work can also be seen in Cooking Light, Coastal Living, Design*Sponge and the recently published cookbook Southern Plate. She is a self described chronic dinner party planner and an aspiring beer nerd. Her favorite southern foods are okra, breakfast tacos, and pretty much anything that involves pork.

The format is all screwed up because there will be pictures super imposed over writing so that you can't distinguish either. And then part of the page is yellowed and part is white. I'm sure if you got it in actual book form this wouldn't be an issue but the Kindle format isn't that good.
But I've seen a few nice recipes I will try and I have enjoyed most of the stories and the old photos that I could see. Because of the lousy kindle formatting, I'm giving it 3 stars.
Finally a recipe for spiced nuts without butter! The technique with egg white creates a crispy shell to adhere your spices to the nuts. Not greasy. The best I have ever made.
All recipes are approachable like most southern cooking - with adaptations for health. Some recipes are rather pedestrian (deviled eggs, potato salad) while most are quite good. I generally enjoy this series from Southern Living - if you enjoy the magazine then you will appreciate this cookbook.
An interesting read - the vintage photos add to the visual interest and the text is wonderful.
