I rate the product how I feel it should be rated according to me and not what the seller wants me to put. This is my honest opinion of how this product has performed to me and or my family. OK now for the honest review!.Southern Cooking Bible: Smokin' Tasty And Authentic Southern Recipes MMMMMM good. You would think Aunt Bee was in the kitchen helping you cook with this book!The recipes are easy to follow and the ones I tried tasted great. I was just wanting more. It a ok read and a decent little book. But it could be better!If it was organized in sections (beef, pork, chicken, etc..) instead of being all jumbled up, that would be easier to use.But being from the south there are a few recipes that are not Southern! This is not a real Southern Cooking Bible, NO corn bread! it did have Succotash! :)Basic good recipes, with easy to follow directions .NO PICTURES!! WHAT IS A COOK BOOK WITHOUT PICTURES OF THE DISHES! If the kindle version had picture this book would be perfect!All-in-all this book is a good download!
Having lived in the deep south for over 11 years and the southwest for another 11 years I figured that there may be some recipes in this book that I have seen before or have made in the past and I was correct. For the Cajun and Creole recipes I was pleasantly surprised to see that most of them held true to what they claimed to be. One recipe called for kielbasa which I am a big fan of, but that is a rookie error when making Jambalaya, you want to use andouille sausage to get the proper flavor. Other than that issue I found that these recipes were easy to follow and that most of the ingredients are readily available at the usual supermarkets. One thing that would make this cookbook better would be the inclusion of some pictures of the finished dishes. Another issue I had with the layout of the book is the name of the recipe is on a separate page from the ingredients and the instructions. Keeping the ingredients and the instructions on two separate pages is acceptable, but put the name of the dish on the same page as the ingredients. One dish that had an odd twist was the Gumbo with potatoes, I am use to gumbo with rice but for this recipe the potato idea was good. I received the book for free but it is wort purchasing if you want to make some authentic style southern dishes.
In my opinion, this cookbook is not that great. First, I prefer a cookbook with pictures of the dishes. It helps me to get a sense of what the dish should look like. Second, a majority of the recipes have too many ingredients for the average home cook. I am not looking for recipes with 20 ingredients! I was born and raised in the south and was excited when I saw this cookbook, but now I am dissatisfied. I did happen to like one of the recipes for the fried potatoes. If you're looking for more Cajun/Louisiana style recipes that take too much time and ingredients to make, then this is the cookbook for you. If you're like me, someone who loves to cook, but is also on a budget and has a full time job and not a lot of time, then don't get this book.Disclaimer: I reviewed the kindle version of this cookbook free at charge in return for publishing my review. This is no way affected my review.
Back a while ago (back in the day) I am talking a good 30 years ago... We would come home from church and have a big spread of all the country fine foods you can imagine. This cook book has brought back many memories of the fine cooking that my friends mom used to do when we were younger. Great easy recipes that taste amazing with real ingredients not processed foods. My kids can't get enough of the macaroni and cheese.This is a great book and I refer to it quite often to bring back those fond memories.I fully recommend this book!I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion
My SO loves Southern cooking and has a few cookbooks with some trusty recipes. This cookbook adds a few more to his repertoire and has a few recipes for his parents to enjoy as well. He's been looking for a good red beans and rice recipe and this book has one. There's also a Southern red rice with shrimp recipe that's good. There's two different shrimp etouffe recipes, which is fun. He makes a cheesy grits recipe, but the Smoky Shrimp and Grits recipe in this book gives him another good option utilizing grits. The Quick Shrimp Chowder is easy and destined to be a regular dish his chowder-loving dad'll make.For me there's a better sweet potato pie recipe than the one we were using, except we'll use our homemade crust instead of store bought. The mac n' cheese is a nice comfort food treat, particularly with the Gouda, but we'd leave out the ham. The chili war between my SO and his dad is bound to heat up again, this time over Cincinnati chili. Seems a bit odd for a Southern cookbook, but chili in general is a Southern treat.There's 30 recipes in this book. We would prefer that they were organized as opposed to the seemingly random order they're in now. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow. We'd make the occasional substitution like fresh green beans for canned. This book makes an excellent addition to my SO's collection with many 'keeper' recipes. I received this at a free or discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. To clarify how I view the rating system, five stars = A, four stars = B, three stars = C, two stars = D, and one star = F.
