Book Club: A Southern Linner


This was our cookbook month for our adult/teen book club.  The plan is to read a cookbook or read about a cook and everyone cooks and brings a recipe from it.  This month’s book is: A Love Affair with Southern Cooking

I chose this book first because everyone loves to read it and the recipes!  I have to admit, it was tons of fun to read. She traveled the South for decades learning all about southern food. The book has great personal anecdotes, a timeline of food in the South, and histories of people and products that are from the South.  Many of the recipes I liked, but some were a little too “foreign” for me. 😉 Who knew southern food was so varied and different than what I know!



Peaches for place settings, sunflowers in mason jars with a little burlap and ribbon and bowls of candied pecans.


I also printed some questions to use for our cookbook book clubs. Cookbook Book Club Questions


We had boiled peanuts, grits, okra dishes, sweet potato dishes, etc. Yum!  IMG_3781

We also had some iced tea with bourbon and lemon.  And we also had some Cheerwine shipped in. Something I’ve never tried.  But, they were good!
