This cookbook is much more personal than the Deen Brothers' first cookbook. In the first cookbook , the brothers (Jamie and Bobby) shared with us some of the recipes that they developed with the inspirations from their travels.
This second cookbook, however, deals mostly with recipes that the brothers developed, perfected, and revised throughout their lives. Of course, this does not mean that this book will give the reader ALL the recipes ever invented by the brothers, but this book will give a wonderful BASIS to the readers, and a terrific introduction to the Brothers Deen style of cooking.
To me, the "Brothers Deen Style" cooking is this:
2)FUN to duplicate,
4)Easy to procure the ingredients, and...
5)The recipes do not take too long to make
As was seen in the Deen Brothers` first cookbook, their photos are spectacular! Almost every single recipes in this 2nd book has a LARGE photo to go with it. The photos themselves are inspirational!
This book covers a "homey" style of cooking, with recipes that are easy to duplicate and also FUN to make and EAT! For example, I'll give y'all a taste of some of my favorite recipes from this cookbook:
~~Bacon wrapped chicken breasts w/chile cheese sauce.
~~Romaine,cucumber,& grape tomato salad w/Ranch dressing (the dressing recipe is included).
~~Mama's friend chicken (I have not tried this one yet, but I've seen this one made on their TV show, and is on my list of recipes to make soon).
~~Hoecakes (another recipes the Brothers made on their/and Paula's TV show,that I plan to duplicate soon, along w/ the fried chicken).
~~Three cheese potato gratin (the 3-cheese mix does the trick!).
~~Breakfast casserole w/ham and cheese (this is like a souffle`, but easier to make).
~~Egg white omelet w/ spinach and tomatoes (it's low in cholesterol).
~~Artichoke & Spinach Dip w/ Pita chips (this is the Brothers' version of the original spinach dip many of us have tried before @ parties).
~~Crab Egg Benedicts (if you love Eggs Benedict, then this version will surprise you).
~~Ham and Cream Cheese stuffed Chicken (this is a similar version to one of Paula's recipes that is very good).
~~Spinach Salad with WARM Bacon dressing (if you have never tried this recipe, please do because it has an unforgettable flavor.One of my family's favorites).
I will stop w/ recipes here because I am running out of room, but there are many more in this book....
Anyhow, all in all,(to me), this is a five star cookbook.
