Come On Over!: Southern Delicious for Every Day and Every Occasion
Elizabeth Heiskell has an interesting perspective on life. She believes every day has something to celebrate, and celebrate she does with exciting dishes, whether it’s a national holiday or a Tuesday she thinks should be celebrated. And she is a Southern gal, so be prepared for rich dishes with lots of butter, gravy, and cream and interesting combinations of ingredients, textures, and flavors. Each recipe comes with gorgeous mouth-watering photographs and the usual instructions as well as the recipe’s story. There are Mom Tips sprinkled throughout. It’s broken into nine sections — Weekdays, Party Days, Delta Days, Summer Days, Beach Days, Game Days, School Days, Diet Days, and Cheat Days. Every recipe has something unexpected about it. Her Tomato Soup calls for bacon among other unusual things, and her ribs recipe uses Hoisin Sauce. Whatever you do, don’t miss her Caramel Brownies. They are to die for. And her Egg Roll in a Bowl is really fun, different, and easy. A couple of things missing, though, are any information on prep time or any nutritional information. Maybe it’s better to no know how many calories are involved. But this is a fun cookbook, so get out your stretchy pants and enjoy!
