Country Cooking From A Redneck Kitchen By Francine Bryson

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 have been cooking from this cookbook for the past few days, it is marvelous. I have all the ingredients in my pantry.  The flavors are out of this world.
Now this is not a low calorie cookbook it's southern food so its not fat free.
If you love to cook and bake with ingredients that you already have on hand then this is your cookbook.
The pictures in this cookbook are great there are not a lot of them but those that are in the book are great.
Easy to do cooking. Great tasting.
I gave this cookbook 4 stars. I highly recommend this cookbook.
I was given a copy of this cookbook by the publisher for my honest review.

  3. I want to give this cookbook a try. It bet it has some really good recipes in it.

  4. I collect cookbooks so this will be a nice addition to my collection. Thanks Mary

    1. Natalie, You are the WINNER! I ordered you a copy of this cookbook from Amazon it's on it way!

  5. I like this a blue ribbon pie winner. I plan to check this cookbook out.

  6. I live in the kitchen I love to bake. I want to see if this cookbook has pies that the church ladies will love.

  7. Sounds like a cookbook that I would use daily. Living in a small town far from major grocery stores make it hard to cook foods that you have to run out and buy special ingredients for. Having them on hand in the pantry is so much better. This is just what I need. Thank you Mary for this review!

  8. I just ordered this for my wife, She saw this on QVC and wanted it but after reading your review I had to get it for her. She will be so excited to get it.

  9. Yummy I wish I had this cookbook in my kitchen. I need something different to cook. Thanks Mary
