Blue Ribbon Baking from a Redneck Kitchen - Book Review
I have really enjoyed reading through this cookbook. All of her stories about being in the kitchen with her grannies and her mother made me think of all the wonderful memories I have of baking when I was a little girl. The names of her recipes are so fun. They are down home easy to make with normal ingredients. Some really great combinations I'd never think of like her chocolate bacon peanut butter pie.
Flipping through this cookbook just made me feel happy. I felt like she could be a good friend because of the way she comes across in this book. I can tell she puts a lot of time and love into her creations. I'm so happy she got her dream of publishing her own cookbook and sharing with all of us.
I'm looking forward to making many of these recipes for gatherings with family and friends. Purdy's Peppermint Pie is on my list for Christmas time. I love that she includes her little Blue Ribbon Tips at the end of some of the recipes. The only thing I wished was included was more pictures. I love seeing photos of what the end product should be. It also really helps me decide if I want to make it or not.
Overall it's a wonderful cookbook. I highly recommend this book if you like baking. So many wonderful memories to be made of your own with it. You can find out more about this book here.
