I don’t profess to be a redneck, but I do love me some country cooking! Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen is Francine Bryson’s newest cookbook. She starts the book of with Redneck Whatnots that includes dips, salads, and finger foods. The next chapter is called Yardbird. She ends the book with Holiday Baked goods, and Bread & Rolls. What’s a southern meal without bread?
I love everything about this book from the beautifully composed pictures to the interesting introduction to each recipe. And the recipes!! Oh. my. word! I am ready to make every recipe in this book, but like I said, I love country style cooking. Francine cooks like many Grandmother’s would cook. I’m dying over the Shrimp and Grits on p. 102-103. That’s something I’ve never ventured to try, but it’s moving to the top of my list! The Mac and Cheese Burgers on p. 58 and the Fried Green ‘Maters on p. 154-155 sound so good and are really making me hungry! In the bread section, Lemonade Rolls p. 218-219 look and sound scrumptious! I highly, highly recommend this book for country cooking lovers of all levels. These recipes use common ingredients with a skill level anyone can do.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
