The Crown of Southern Cooking - Cookbook Review and Giveaway

Winner of The Crown of Southern Cooking is: Carol M. Happy baking and cooking, Carol!

I would like to give a huge shout out and thank you to Quail Ridge Press, for the opportunity to review this new and delicious cookbook, The Crown of Southern Cooking by Evelyn Roughton.

I have enjoyed every page of this cookbook. While Evelyn's husband was in the Air Force, they spent time living in, and traveling in many countries, so the history of some of the recipes is quite interesting. Adding to that, they have a restaurant in the Mississippi Delta.  

I am loving learning more about the foods and flavors of this part of the south. It really is delicious, and different from Wisconsin and Minnesota traditional foods.

Up on my baking list for next week is Italian Cream Cake. This cake is a recent obsession of mine, so I was thrilled to find a recipe for it in this cookbook.

B.B.'s Pickled Black-Eyed Peas are so yummy, just look at this dish. It's a dip, a side, or a salad. Your choice! I've had it all three ways. This recipe is one of my favorites from the cookbook, it's completely different from anything I have ever made before. I can't get enough of it!
