I'm a southerner so this book immediately spoke to me but you don't have to be southern for it to speak to you. I'm always looking for fun bites to try because not only do I love to cook, I also enjoy the looks on peoples faces when they eat something I've put together. This book came at a great time for me, my dad will be turning 70 in August and I've been looking for new recipes to make for a party we are having for him. Let me tell you this book delivered wonderfully on taste and ease when I took on several recipes, deciding on the ones I will use for my dads party. I tested several and loved them all. The Carolina Caviar was a simple but well seasoned dish that I enjoyed making, I've made a recipe similar to this one but enjoyed the differences that this one added. Now as anyone can tell you southerners love Deviled Eggs and that happens to be a specialty of mine so I had to try the Deviled Egg Spread and it turned out beautifully. Not only was it easy to make but it truly reminded me of a deviled egg. I'll be turning this spread into sandwiches like the book suggested and can't wait to see what everyone thinks. Now I have a freezer packed full of pecans that I put up last year and I found a fabulous recipe that not only allowed me to use them but brought them to life. The Pecan Cheese Strips were simple to make and are something that can be made ahead of time and frozen. I love this because I can always make several batches, freeze them, and pull them out when needed. When you are making most of the food for a party being able to make something ahead of time is always welcome. The last recipe that I tried was the Bacon Pecan Cheese Ball, just like the deviled eggs, southerners adore a well put together cheese ball. I've made a huge variety of them over the years but never one like this and let me tell you it is one that I will use again and again. Who doesn't love bacon and cheese!!! This was truly a great compilation of recipes that I look forward to making may way through. I'll be testing more as the weeks go by and can't wait to see what catches my taste buds next.
I loved every recipe I found in SOUTHERN SNACKS ... and there are 77 for “small bites with big flavors!”Adore the colorful design and really pretty photos in this terrific cookbook by Perre Coleman Magness, cook and writer behind the website The Runaway Spoon, which focuses on creative recipes with a Southern slant. Every kind of snack ... for a football game, party, special occasion ... is featured, many inspired by southern community cookbooks, home cooks, and chefs who put new twists on southern flavors. I want the Field Pea Hummus, Sweet Tea Pecans, Louisiana’s Natchitoches Meat Pies, Charleston’s Benne Wafers ... and hey, if I can admit it, the Fried Dill Pickles. Major yum! Along with recipes you’ll find fine Southern stories and lore, just perfect to read while fixin’ up your next Southern Snack. I’m in Heaven, y’all! 5/5 Pub Date 10 Sep 2018 Thanks to University of North Carolina Press and NetGalley for the review copy. Opinions are fully mine. #SouthernSnacks #NetGalley
I was so excited to read this book about Southern snacks. Some I had never heard of and wish to try. Being from the South, I understand the concept of having something to offer people when they visit. Now I have many more foods to add. If you like southern cooking or just good food, you will love these recipes. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.
