Overview

It’s a heartfelt celebration of family dinners—the comforting, delicious food that memories are made of—by the new doyenne of Southern cooking. Christy Jordan is a former editor-at-large of Southern Living, a contributing editor to Taste of the South, and publisher of the wildly popular blog SouthernPlate.com—boasting nearly 1 million unique visitors per month, over 60,000 e-newsletter subscribers, and more than 50,000 Facebook fans. She’s appeared on TODAY, Paula Deen, and QVC, among many other media outlets, and her first book, Southern Plate (William Morrow), has 107,000 copies in print.

Conceived and written to reflect the reality of today’s hectic schedules—and the need to gather around the dinner table—Come Home to Supper offers more than 200 deeply satisfying dishes that are budget-minded, kid-friendly, and quick. These are the everyday meals that Christy Jordan most loves to cook, and her family most loves to eat, and she serves them up with generous helpings of her folksy wisdom, gratitude, and lively stories.

Many of the recipes make ingenious use of the slow cooker or a single pot or skillet; require easily found supermarket ingredients; and are packed with time-saving tips and shortcuts. And the menu, well, it’s all good, includingCrispy Breaded Pork Chops with Milk Gravy, Beef and Broccoli,Spicy Fried Chicken,Craving Beans, Summer Corn Salad, Slow Cooker Baked Apples,Ice Cream Rolls, andCinnamon Pudding Cobbler. Or to put it like Christy Jordan, food to make your family “smile louder.”

Like Lisa Caponigri's Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner? A Year of Italian Menus with 250 Recipes That Celebrate Family and Lucinda Scala Quinn's Mad Hungry Cravings, Jordan's follow-up to Southern Plate: Classic Comfort Food That Makes Everyone Feel Like Family seeks to reconnect families at the table. Written with busy, practical home cooks in mind, her recipes (e.g., Coca-Cola pork chops, oven-baked sloppy joes) emphasize time and money-saving solutions. Store-bought ingredients such as canned soup and frozen vegetables reduce prep time and cleanup, and appliances that include slow cookers and microwaves minimize labor. Optimistic vignettes (e.g., "Your Life Through Rainbow-Colored Glasses") encourage readers to be good parents and to live happy, meaningful lives. VERDICT Unpretentious Southern comfort foods dominate this family-friendly collection. Not recommended for readers avoiding meat or dairy.

This is simple southern cooking at its best. Christy's recipes remind me of the kinds of recipes I grew up on and continue to cook for my family. I love to cook and on the weekends I enjoy more complicated and time consuming recipes and even sometimes tackle a gourmet recipe. During the work week I come home exhausted and just want to prepare a simple but filling recipe and this book gives me lots of those. I like that there are slow cooker options for many recipes included in this book too. There's nothing like coming home to a meal already prepared or mostly prepared and ready to dig into. If you enjoy reading your cookbooks as I do you'll also enjoy the little stories and inspirational messages Christy includes making this book a must have if you love making good food. Speaking of making good food, do you know the difference between baking soda and baking powder? Or how long raw eggs will last in your refrigerator? What is resting time? What is even the proper temperature to cook chicken? If you don’t know the answer to even one of these questions, I’d also recommend that you buy a copy of Conquer Your Kitchen… from Chef Jai Scovers, bestselling author of The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution and don’t forget about her companion cookbook, Simple, Healthy and Delicious. In “Conquer Your Kitchen,” you will discover over 100 surprising kitchen secrets that will save you valuable time and money. Including…why you should always start every meal with a pot of cold water, how to cook the perfect pasta, rice and/or potatoes every time, and even, how to deal with the “picky” or “light” eater in your family! The charts for food storage are worth the costs of the book alone. Who knew that you should never defrost meat on a counter top? Where Chef Jai tells you to do it makes a lot of sense! In Simple, Healthy & Delicious, Chef Jai Scovers reveals just some of her favorite, most satisfying and delicious recipes, often with a healthy twist, quick meal ideas and helpful cooking tips that will help you reach and maintain your healthy weight loss goal and still provide real, wholesome meals that your entire family can enjoy at any time! Including Lemon Shallot Scallops, the Ham & Herb Cheese and the Pound Cake French Toast. I highly recommend all three books, even if you have to borrow the last two from your local library!

I liked this book a lot mostly because the recipes are down to earth & don't require some exotic ingredients or hard to find spices. I found several new dishes that I will try.

Christy Jordan’s latest cookbook is dedicated to families in today’s world. This cookbook is crammed full of delicious recipes that are made up of affordable ingredients. She focuses on making things easier for her readers by offering differing ways to cook in the same recipe, i.e. slow cooker versus oven. The recipes are organized by the main ingredient and cover wide variety of cultural favorites. Christy Jordan includes anecdotes from her past and uplifting quotes throughout the book. This is a wonderful cookbook for busy families who are looking for easy recipes to bring everyone to the table.  Notes: This review was written for My Sister’s Books.

Come Home to Supper is a family-friendly cookbook with recipes that everyone, from little children to adults, will love. I love that the recipes do not call for "out of this world" ingredients. You can find all of these ingredients at your local grocery store and do not have to go searching. These recipes are also budget friendly- which is a great thing! With a section in the back of recipes for homemade ingredients, you have the option to go the short-cut route and used canned items or you can make them from scratch and the recipe is right there. Also included in this book are many short stories that will warm your heart and encouraging quotes throughout. This book is sure to become a family favorite and one that you turn to time and time again. I'm sure it won't be long before many of these cookbooks look old and ragged just because they have been uses so many times. But that's a good thing! If you want a cookbook that's family-friendly, this is the one for you! *I received a copy of this book from Workman Publishing for an honest review.*
