My Favorite Family Recipes with a Modern Twist
by Whitney Miller
I love good old fashioned southern food and this book delivers. She takes classics and make a few swaps and switches and makes them healthier for the at home cook to eat. Her cookbook is full of easy to use recipes that don’t have ingredients that are hard to find or expensive and makes them simple and fast so any one can be a New Southern Table cook. The pictures are so pretty and she writes in such a manner that it’s like your old friends and she is sharing her families recipes with you. Whitney Miller’s New Southern Table is a cookbook that will never make it my bookshelf it will be on my kitchen counter since I know I’ll be using it so much why put it up. Her red beans and rice recipe is different from any recipe I’ve seen and since I make it weekly that was the first one I knew I’d try. All her recipes are good not just on paper but when you make them also. You know what I mean you get a cookbook, try a recipe and it doesn’t come anywhere near what the book says. Not Whitney Miller’s book all the recipes come out great and with such ease! Grab a copy and try out some good down home southern cooking with a twist.
