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.”

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
09/15/2013
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.

    Southern Goodness!

    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.

    Come Home to Supper is a family-friendly cookbook with recipes t

    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.*
