A heartwarming tale of food and family, Soul Food Love brings just that--love! Love for food and family permeate the pages. Comfort food--the kind you want to feed those you love--is prepared with a healthy twist, just another example of love. We want those we love to be around a long time so we can feed them goodies such as Spicy Pepper Chicken, Shrimp Stew, Roasted Asparagus with Lemon Zest, Chopped Spinach and Turkey Salad, Herb Roasted Salmon and more so we can show our love with HEALTHY comfort food. Kudos to Ms. Randall! I received a copy of this book through Blogging for Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I really was surprised when a coworker handed me a recipe from this cookbook and told be that I would love it. Why? I am not a fan of butter. Soul Food was not to my taste. I was so impressed with that recipe that I picked up the book. Caroline takes us back to the roots of Soul Food and brings flavor to the table. The recipes that I have tried have been a mix of flavors, not depending on lard and butter but on spices and the flavors of the food itself. Recipes made one day can easily be blended with other ingredients to make a leftover meal which I find a bonus in my 2-person household.
