Molly Liggin Rankin posted a picture of this cook book on Facebook this morning. The book in her picture was her mother’s, Edna Matthews Liggin.
“This old cookbook was on top of my mother’s refrigerator most of my childhood as best I remember. That fancy platter of “petits fours” picture on the inside cover of the book always intrigued me….needless to say, Edna didn’t make petits fours but this was the only cookbook I remember in our house.”
Me being me, I had to see if it was on Amazon. There are several editions of book on there. The one shown above was printed in 1951.
A very nice selection of authentic down home Southern Dishes from the Yearwood’s family favorites. Beautifully photographed and well written directions as are all Ms. Yearwood’s books.
Nancy Fuller has a popular cooking show. She shares her recipes and tip bits about her family and friends. I started watching her by accident. The show came on one morning and she was talking about her grandmother who was a Tabor. My grandmother was a Tabor also. I kept watching to find out more her Tabors and I liked the show. This is one of her cookbooks. I think you will enjoy it.
This is a great cookbook. If you love Ree’s show, you’ll love the book! This one is comfort food with a twist. Like her other books Ree has photos of both the process making the recipe and the finished dish. It is a great book for beginners also. Totally recommend!
If you are a Mitford fan you must have to have this cookbook. It has all the recipes from Mitford. You will find some from the church suppers and even some from Puny’s own cookbook. How about Harley’s famous brownies? It also has stories where the recipes came from. This is perfect for Mitford fans. Your collection will not be complete without it. And it would be a wonderful gift for a Mitford fan.
