A cookbook with a personal touch.

This is more than a cook book. It is the story of the Neeley's life and the food that is so much a part of it. Thier family biography is interspersed throughout the book. Each recipie has a comment about where they got it or how they developed it.

If you're looking for a health food book, look elsewhere. Your arteries will clog just reading some of the recipies. Never the less, I think I will wind up trying almost every entry (even the barbeque spaghetti!). The Cheesy Corkscrews with Bacon Topping was a big hit with my casserole-shy family.

Sock it to me cake

Think there was a misprint in book. Asked for 1/4 cups cake flour and it must not be enough. It turned out terrible. Would not recommend this cake.

    NOT FOR NOOK HD (no PagePerfect, i.e. graphically enhanced, books are).  
    They don't tell you this when you purchase a NOOK HD - which is the updated version of the Nook Color.

    The newest reader gets fewer compatible books, and none with enhanced graphics!  Nice.
