"Off The Eaten Path: Second Helpings" Cookbook by Southern Living
Loved this book!!!
We have cooked quite a few recipes and have loved them all..........Any chance for a third helpings!!!!!
Just not that great
I was very disappointed with the cookbook. I didn't really care for the recipes. Too much other content I wasn't interested in. I thought it would have more "southern home style recipes".
Great book - I went back & purchased a second one
Love this book! Great pictures and nice recipes! I purchased one for my neighbor as well!
Beautiful book, so-so recipes
This is one of the most beautiful cookbooks visually. There are hundreds of color photos and interesting stories. Like David Venable, I read cookbooks cover to cover like regular books, and I really love books like this that are so appealing to the eye. I have the original cookbook by this author also.
Despite how beautiful the book is to look at, the recipes were just so-so. There were only two recipes in this book that I have even the smallest interest in making. While there were a lot of pictures in the book, there were not all that many recipes. I guess I was expecting tasty food made from scratch using farm-fresh products (given where the recipes come from), but most were recipes from roadside diners that have lots of processed foods in the recipes and are loaded with fat and sugar.
I lived in the South for a while and the food is really so good. I used to love the restaurants in the small towns because everything was homemade and tasted so good. The food in this cookbook isn't bad; it's just not the best of the South and that's unfortunate because there is so much good food there. Having said that, the book really is beautiful and fun to read. Buy it for that, not for the recipes.
I can't wait to try some of these recipes. I have a daughter-in-law that is Cajun and she can't wait to try all of those recipes. We are very excited.
I have tried 5 of the recipes and my family has loved all of them.
This is the most beautiful cookbook I've ever seen! But it's more than a cookbook, I couldn't stop reading the stories and every page has a colorful picture. I love the construction of the book cover and how the book stays open. Can't wait to try the recipes! This would be a cool job going to different restaurants looking for recipes. Thanks Southern Living!
EXCELLENT BOOK ON ITS OWN !
THIS COOKBOOK QUALIFIES AS AN AWESOME GIFT FOR ANY COOKBOOK LOVER, ANYONE WHO ENJOYS TRAVELING THROUGH THE SOUTH OR JUST LIKES TRIVIA HISTORY AND INTERESTING ARTICLES. IT IS MORE THAN A COOKBOOK. I CAN SEE KEEPING A FEW ON HAND FOR GIFTS AS WELL. KUDOS TO THE AUTHOR!
Vacation in a cookbook :c)
I am in love with this book! I live in the south but don't get a chance to travel much. The recipes are great but the pictures and stories are even better. So glad I got this book. I will be making these recipes.
More than just a cookbook
The stories about the restaurants and pictures are great,and to make it even better, we get great recipes--made the mistake of letting my mother look at it, and now I am afraid it will be a long, long time before I get it back!
I bought this for my daughter and had it sent to her home. She called me and said this cookbook is totally awesome! It's also nice so that if you are in the area of one of the restaurants that you know you can stop there for some good food!!!
