    I received a free copy of this book. I haven't tried these recipes yet, but after reading through this cookbook I can say that I look forward to trying more than half of the recipes. Even though some of the recipes don't appeal to me, I think they might appeal to someone like my dad. So, at some point I'm sure I'll try the majority of them. Also, I wish there were pictures of some of the dishes included in the cookbook. I have a question about the recipe Easy Blackberry Cobbler on pages 94 and 95 I received a free copy of this book.

Also, I wish there were pictures of some of the dishes included in the cookbook. I have a question about the recipe Easy Blackberry Cobbler on pages 94 and 95. The following is the ingredient list: 2 cups fresh blackberries 2-3 cups sugar, divided 1/2 cup salted butter 1 cup sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup evaporated milk 1 tablespoon baking powder Is the 2-3 cups sugar a typo? I know blackberries are tart and it's really a matter of personal taste, but 2 to 3 cups of sugar seems a lot for 2 cups of blackberries. Considering that it calls for 1 cup of sugar in the batter, I'm wondering if starting off with a one-third cup of sugar for the blackberries would be better. I look forward to trying these recipes and I appreciate being given a copy of this cookbook.

    I love the Savor the South cookbook series! This one takes on the tradition of Southern Sunday Dinners. As the author writes in the introduction, "Sunday dinner, especially in the South, is more than a meal - it's a state of mind. It's about taking the time to be with the people who matter to you. During the week, we often are rushing - to get home, to get to a meeting, or to get to a child's after-school activity. On Sunday, we can slow down, relax, and savor the food and relationships that wil I love the Savor the South cookbook series! This one takes on the tradition of Southern Sunday Dinners. As the author writes in the introduction, "Sunday dinner, especially in the South, is more than a meal - it's a state of mind. It's about taking the time to be with the people who matter to you. During the week, we often are rushing - to get home, to get to a meeting, or to get to a child's after-school activity. On Sunday, we can slow down, relax, and savor the food and relationships that will nourish us for the rest of the week." (p. 3) The recipes featured are well-known Southern favorites - fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, etc. Most of the recipes are favorites that have been passed down in the author's family, but others are a twist on an old favorite. So many of the recipes sound delicious and there are definitely a few I want to try. But, I also like that the author gives tips at the end of the introduction on how to have a successful "sunday dinner" whether you grew up doing it or not. To me this cookbook embodies not only the food, but the spirit of the South where food is an expression of love.

    I enjoyed this cookbook. She had good recipes and good stories of her family all gathering around the "Sunday table" for dinner. I recognized so much of what she was talking about in my own family. Growing up in the south, after church, everyone would gather at our house, (including aunts, uncles, cousins) for grandma's (she lived with us) cooking. Even though grandma has passed on and people have moved away, including me, my mama still cooks Sunday dinner after church for my brother, sisters, t I enjoyed this cookbook.
