Few people know that national pie champion Francine Bryson got her start on the cooking contest circuit at age sixteen with a savory stuffed pork loin—that won first place. In Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen, Francine invites you into her home to share recipes for everything that graces her Southern table: chicken dinners, savory pies, Sunday suppers to serve the preacher, make-and-take casseroles, dips and other redneck whatnots, backyard barbecue favorites—and, of course, three chapters devoted to her celebrated baked goods, including her most-requested holiday sweets. Feeding people is what Francine loves to do, and here are simple instructions for 125 dishes with 60 color photographs to help you to bring her Southern charm to your table.

I grew up in the north, Michigan to be exact. I moved to the south in 2002 and started my southern trek between three states, starting in Texas, then Louisiana to Mississippi and finally back in Louisiana. I have been trying different southern foods, just trying to find the perfect southern food. I have learned how to cook different southern foods from friends parents as well. When I saw this book was up for review, I decided to give it a go and see what kinds of food that I haven't tried that might sound appealing. 

There are so many appealing recipes in this book, that I must say, I can't wait to try almost all of these. With Blueberry BBQ sauce to Blackberry Pecan Bread, to Squirrel Pot Pie (yes, you heard that right). Just so many options to try. There is definitely something in here for everyone.

The book is easily readable and understandable. With beautifully photographed recipes and well put together. I highly recommend this cookbook.
