Overview

Fannie Flagg's Original Whistle Stop Cafe Cookbook: Featuring Fried Green Tomatoes, Southern Barbecue, Banana Split Cake, and Many Other Great Recipes by Fannie Flagg

"IT'LL MAKE FOR SOME MIGHTY FINE EATING."
—Fort Worth Star Telegram
After the tremendous success of her novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, and the beloved movie that followed, author Fannie Flagg received thousands of requests from all over the world asking for recipes from the little cafe of her Alabama childhood that was the model for the cafe in her novel. Now, she joyfully shares those recipes, in what may well be the first cookbook ever written by a satisfied customer rather than a cook! Inside you'll find wonderful recipes for:
* Skinless Fried Chicken
• Pork Chops with Apples and Sweet Potatoes
• Baked Ham and Pineapple Rings
• Baked Turkey with Traditional Cornbread Dressing
• Black-eyed Peas
• Fried Okra
• Creamed Onions
• Broccoli Casserole
• Southern Cream Gravy
• Fried Catfish
• Scalloped Oysters
• Down Home Crab Cakes
• Beaten Biscuits
• Corn Pones
• Lemon Ice Box Pie
• Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie
• And much more!
The recipes in Fannie Flagg's Original Whistle Stop Cafe Cookbook are all for delicious hearty happy food that comes with all sorts of things, from gravies to hot sauces (very often the secret's in the sauce). But most of all this food, and this book, comes with love.
"If you liked her novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, and if you liked the movie they made from that novel, you'll like this cookbook....It's funny, just like Flagg."
—Richmond Times-Dispatch
"Recommended...All the traditional dishes are here, along with the author's irreverent, irresistible commentary on Southern cooking and culture."

This is THE best cookbook you will ever use. I have made many recipes from this book, and each one has been exceptional. My husband and I agree; there is not a bad recipe in the book.

This is the best southern cookbook I have ever found. Just like my mama made!!!! A must have for your collection especially if, like me, you have moved out of the south and can't find these wonderful dishes anywhere else!

This is the best southern cookbook I have ever found, the recipes are just like my mama made!!!!! A must have for your collection, especially when, like me, you find yourself living out of the south and can't find these wonderful dishes anywhere else.

The recipes are easy to follow and short which I like. Also the little comments by the recipes are fun to read and most are very funny. I have a friend that I know will love this cookbook too so I have bought another one to give her at Christmas.

Use a store bought graham cracker crust and be careful to buy condensed milk not evaporated milk. Delicious.
