    I borrowed this from the library solely because I'm downsizing and don't need another cookbook. Plus, I really wanted her biscuit recipe! There are some other pretty great looking recipes here, but it's her commentary that's just adorable! She calls salt "compliments" because if you ...

    3.5 stars. I am a sucker for cookbooks with southern recipes, and recipes for lots of side dishes/vegetables. This one hits those marks. Carla actually hired someone else to write the book, which is fine. She developed the recipes. I like picking up different techniques. For example, i...

    I love Southern food and was really looking forward to checking out this cookbook, but I found it a little disappointing. Maybe because I've grown up in the South there just weren't a lot of recipes I wanted to try. I did like that she explored all aspects of Southern food and talked a...

    I read a lot of cookbooks, most are good, but this one really stands out. I recommend this to anyone, check it out. A nice departure from the Paula Deen stuff I see a lot, there are some really yummy takes on a lot of favorites. I love how much this highlights vegetables in ways that m...

    This book would be awesome for someone who likes this type of food. For me this is not my normal type of fare and this probably would not be given the choice my first pick. I did find a recipe for something called sweet tea soda, that sounds very interesting. There could have been more...

    Hall?s writing is cozy and conspiratorial, like she?s letting you in on family secrets. There?s a lot of great history and a lot of vegetable recipes. I wanted to make pretty much every recipe I read. She?s a delight. ...

    Are you supposed to cry while you read a cookbook? Carla's connection to her family and ancestors is so beautiful and so in the spirit of how we should experience food I cried the whole way. Also the recipes look amazing. ...

    I will try a couple of the recipes in this book. ...

    I found about four recipes that sound healthy and easy without special ingredients. ...

    Love Carla! Lots of things to try in this one. Good basics, but with enough distinction to make them new. ...

    A wonderful collection of stories and recipes from one of the best cooks I've ever followed. Carla is the happiest and most joyful person and I loved reading about how her love for food came about. ...

    I love Southern food and was really looking forward to checking out this cookbook, but I found it a little disappointing. Maybe because I've grown up in the South there just weren't a lot of recipes I wanted to try. I did like that she explored all aspects of Southern food and talked a...

    I read a lot of cookbooks, most are good, but this one really stands out. I recommend this to anyone, check it out. A nice departure from the Paula Deen stuff I see a lot, there are some really yummy takes on a lot of favorites. I love how much this highlights vegetables in ways that m...

    This book would be awesome for someone who likes this type of food. For me this is not my normal type of fare and this probably would not be given the choice my first pick. I did find a recipe for something called sweet tea soda, that sounds very interesting. There could have been more...

    Hall?s writing is cozy and conspiratorial, like she?s letting you in on family secrets. There?s a lot of great history and a lot of vegetable recipes. I wanted to make pretty much every recipe I read. She?s a delight. ...

    I didn't know an audiobook of a cookbook could be a thing, but it was kind of like watching a cooking show with nothing to look at. I love Carla Hall, way back from her two part call of "hootie, hootie hoo" on Top Chef, so I enjoyed hearing her talk about food that is important to her....

    Are you supposed to cry while you read a cookbook? Carla's connection to her family and ancestors is so beautiful and so in the spirit of how we should experience food I cried the whole way. Also the recipes look amazing. ...

    As always, fun takes on Southern favorites. ...

    I will try a couple of the recipes in this book. ...

    I found about four recipes that sound healthy and easy without special ingredients. ...

    Love Carla! Lots of things to try in this one. Good basics, but with enough distinction to make them new. ...

    A wonderful collection of stories and recipes from one of the best cooks I've ever followed. Carla is the happiest and most joyful person and I loved reading about how her love for food came about. ...

    I love this woman...... the way she writes, the way she cooks, and her marvelous sense of herself and humor! ...

    I liked the book. I made 10 recipes from the book with no modifications. All of the recipes were well written and I will be trying more in the near future. ...

    Beautiful, diverse, and simple. What more could you ask for? ...

    Nice book with not an overwhelming amount of back story for each recipe. I found a few I'll try. ...

    Congratulations Carla, great book. Love the simple to make recipes. ...

    As always, fun takes on Southern favorites. ...

    I will try a couple of the recipes in this book. ...

    I found about four recipes that sound healthy and easy without special ingredients. ...

    Love Carla! Lots of things to try in this one. Good basics, but with enough distinction to make them new. ...

    A wonderful collection of stories and recipes from one of the best cooks I've ever followed. Carla is the happiest and most joyful person and I loved reading about how her love for food came about. ...

    I love this woman...... the way she writes, the way she cooks, and her marvelous sense of herself and humor! ...

    I borrowed this from the library solely because I'm downsizing and don't need another cookbook. Plus, I really wanted her biscuit recipe! There are some other pretty great looking recipes here, but it's her commentary that's just adorable! She calls salt "compliments" because if you ...

    3.5 stars. I am a sucker for cookbooks with southern recipes, and recipes for lots of side dishes/vegetables. This one hits those marks. Carla actually hired someone else to write the book, which is fine. She developed the recipes. I like picking up different techniques. For example, i...

    I love Southern food and was really looking forward to checking out this cookbook, but I found it a little disappointing. Maybe because I've grown up in the South there just weren't a lot of recipes I wanted to try. I did like that she explored all aspects of Southern food and talked a...

    I read a lot of cookbooks, most are good, but this one really stands out. I recommend this to anyone, check it out. A nice departure from the Paula Deen stuff I see a lot, there are some really yummy takes on a lot of favorites. I love how much this highlights vegetables in ways that m...

    This book would be awesome for someone who likes this type of food. For me this is not my normal type of fare and this probably would not be given the choice my first pick. I did find a recipe for something called sweet tea soda, that sounds very interesting. There could have been more...

    Hall?s writing is cozy and conspiratorial, like she?s letting you in on family secrets. There?s a lot of great history and a lot of vegetable recipes. I wanted to make pretty much every recipe I read. She?s a delight. ...

    I liked the book. I made 10 recipes from the book with no modifications. All of the recipes were well written and I will be trying more in the near future. ...

    Beautiful, diverse, and simple. What more could you ask for? ...

    Nice book with not an overwhelming amount of back story for each recipe. I found a few I'll try. ...

    Congratulations Carla, great book. Love the simple to make recipes. ...

    Carla Hall reaches out to the reader with her love and vulnerability. In turn, we the reader not only are encouraged to cook... but we learn about the culture through her ...
