As many of you know I collect cook books.
I am always on the look out for unique,
new or old books to add to my arsenal.
I tend to buy the cook books that mirror the
kind of style and way I cook for my family.
You would think that finding cook books
like that were easy....HA!
Let me tell you it is NOT!
To me, cook books are personal.
They tell a story. Let us see who the Author
really is by the ingredients used,
the description's they give to
each recipe. Even the their vocabulary.
I can usually tell if I will like the book
by (3) things:
1). The cover photo/title
2). The introduction/foreword
3). Style of recipes
I read them as if they were a novel.
A novel I don't want to put down!
Do you understand just how much I love
finding a Cook Book I LOVE?
I am happy to say I have found another
much loved "novel", I don't ever want to finish.
Authored by my sweet friend, food blogger of
I knew I was going to love this New Book,
after I "dog eared" and highlighted every
page of her 1st cook book~ Southern Plate.
When I was given the opportunity to
receive an early released copy to
review/giveaway I JUMPED at the chance.
You will find over 200 recipes that have
been approved, by Christy's own family.
Come Home to Supper, recipes are simple
to make with everyday ingredients.
