    Great gift for people who love to cook

    I liked the book because it has ordinary food that is easy to make.You don't have to go out and buy groceries before you can cook.There are exceptions,but that goes with any cookbook.
    I bought 8 of these books for my sisters,daughterin-laws,and daughter .They were all thrilled.
    There are some recipes that call for canned products and mixes,but many more that are from scratch.And even though I cook from scratch ,occassionally if I am in a hurry and need something quick,I love to use the easier dishes.And they are always a hit.

    Some great recipes! And very Southern

    I'm not sure what the reviews about can dumping are in this book - but I've picked up some great techniques on things like frying chicken, and found some recipes JUST LIKE my grandmother used to make. Now, I'm Southern - born and raised in Rome, GA., and I'll attest that this IS Southern cooking. It is NOT gourmet cooking, just every day Blue Plate Special at the best Southern small town diner cooking. I love it - I recently got rid of a lot of my cookbooks, but this one stayed on my shelf.

    Best Down homemade cookbook for 2005 !!!!!!!

    This cookbook is the best that I've ran across in many years!! I collect cook books, and this cookbook is great for beginners and for advance cooks. Most of the ingread. in the book you have right in your cubbards. The food is great and home made like my mother and grandmothers. The charts and the table in back are full of information to cook for a small group to 100 servings. It also measurement that I have found in old time recipes and how to convert ( example can contents )
