Three generations of a southern family come together to deal with a death, but not in the traditional boring way. The table is always full of food, the wine glasses are always full, and the cigarette supply is endless. The baby of the family is always the baby, the oldest is always the oldest, and as long there is soul filling comfort food, the Robertson family can survive anything. Throw in a frantic search for the will, two people at the funeral in the same dress, and the recipes for over 20 classic southern dishes (straight from the author's family vault) and you are guaranteed to laugh, cry and laugh because you cried.

This book makes you feel at home, as if you have found a family that you want to be a part of. The theme may seem sad, but it isn't. It is about a family surviving the only way they know how: eat comfort food, smoke a lot of cigarettes and simply be there for each other. I also am anxious to try each and every single recipe included within the pages of this book.
