You know it's going to be a good cookbook when the first page you flip to you want to make that recipe. We lived in Texas for 3 years and came to love southern dishes. We look for cookbooks from Louisiana especially. We were not disappointed with the variety of recipes this cookbook had to offer. With 110 recipes in this cookbook we are going to be very busy in the kitchen. "We received this book for free from Multomah Publishing for this review."
