Book Review: Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen

Disclosure: Special thanks to Blogging for Books for sponsoring this post!

Though I live in the midwestern city of Chicago, I have a strong appreciation for all things southern. I love flipping through the latest issue of Southern Living -- I'm a subscriber! I'm looking forward to visiting more great southern destinations - Hot Springs, AK, Louisville, KY, Asheville, NC and Chattanooga, TN are at the top of my list. It goes without saying that I love southern cooking -- who doesn't! 

Here's a book that showcases the best of the best in good ole southern cookin':

Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen
by Francine Bryson and Ann Volkwein.

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 a cooking competition. In Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen, she shares all her favorite recipes: chicken dinners, savory pies, Sunday suppers to serve the preacher, make-and-take casseroles, dips and other redneck whatnots, backyard barbecue favorites. She also dedicates three chapters to her award-winning baked goods

So far my top recipe picks in this book are...
Faked Out Fried Chicken - bakes, not fried!2
Corn Fritters (OMG so good!!!)
Fried Okra (the best!!)

The instructions are super easy and don't call for a bazillion hard-to-find ingredients. The book features a total of 125 dishes with 60 color photographs, too, helping you bring a little  southern charm to your table. 

Check out Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen by Francine Bryson and Ann Volkwein, available today at your local independent bookstore or library.
