Farm Fresh Southern Cooking - Cookbook Review


Farm Fresh Southern Cooking written by Tammy Algood, is a great cookbook full of Southern recipes.



I chose this recipe book to review because my husband is from the South and it seemed like a good idea for me to learn some new Southern recipes, myself, to prepare for him :) Looking through the book, I found quite a few recipes I would like to try out. A few of them are the Golden Brown Goat Cheese Medallions, Coconut Corn Fritters and the savory zucchini pie. I do however; wish their entrĂ©e/meat section had more recipes. My husband is a meat lover so that would have been nice :) 

   We also love smoothies so when we came across the Summer Fruit Watermelon Smoothie, we knew we had to make it!! It calls for Watermelon, crushed ice, lime juice and raspberry sherbet. We couldn’t find just ‘raspberry sherbet’ so we used berry patch sherbet which contained all berries. I think the smoothie would have been better if we used only a raspberry sherbet, but it was still pretty good.
   
  I love the photos in this book; I think they were used great, to show the beauty of the food, and allowing it to look original enough to make yourself, at home. I do wish each recipe had a photo of the food though. Because some pages, they have the recipe but no photo..and if it's your first time making it, a photo would be nice to go off of. 

   If you have a garden, this recipe book will give you new ideas of food, to bring to the table....Just as the book says “Straight From The garden To Your Dinner Table.” :) 
 
But going to the store to pick out your ingredients will work just as well.


 I received this book from booksneeze.com in exchange for my review.

  1. I recently self-published my own e-book The Blessing of a Mother-in-Law and Daughter-in-Law Relationship. I was wondering if your blog would be willing to do a review of my book?

    The purpose of this book is to combat the lie that a mother-in-law, daughter-in-law relationship is destined to be a negative relationship filled with mutual dislike and mere toleration of one another. Instead, it is written to show that God purposely created this relationship and intends for this relationship to hold blessings. The book takes a close look at the lives of Ruth and Naomi and applies the principles found there to our lives today.


    My book will be free for download April 20-April 21.

    Let me know if you think this is a book your readers might enjoy. If you are interested you can contact me via e-mail at forhisgloryalone@ymail.com.

    Thank you for your consideration,
