Weekly Cookbook Review (White Trash Cooking 1 & 2)

As most of you know...
I have gotten several e-mails from people asking me what my favorite cookbook in my collection would be. (There is no way I can choose just one! It would be like choosing which of my children I love the most, it just can't be done.)
I have decided to share some of my favorite cookbooks here with you every Monday.
Some are funny, some are old, some are traditional, some are goofy, some are for a specific kind of food, some cover it all...

Let me introduce you to some of my friends.....

"White Trash Cooking"

By Ernest Matthew Mickler

If'n your lookin for fancy vittles, you done come to the wrong place! But if your lookin for good ole stick to yer ribs country folk homemade cookin that makes ya wanna lick the bowl when yer done, .. Mister, You Found it!

Welcome Neighbor!

I love these two cookbooks!

They are just a wonderful read! Very entertaining and You can tell they were written by someone who knows his White Trash, backward, country, kinfolk and Loves them dearly!

There are wonderful recipes that many of us have tried, just dont admit most of the time like...

Uncle Willie's Swamp Cabbage Stew

Boiled Peanuts

Chicken Fried Steak & White Gravy

Chicken Feet & Rice

Freda's Five Can Casserole

Cooter Pie (that's turtle for most folks!)

Day-Old Fried Fish

Rice-n-eggs (my hubby's favorite of all time!)

Anti-Stick Peanut Butter Sandwich

Mamma's Pralines

Bucket Dumplings

Tar Babies

Southern Sweet Tea

cobblers, cakes, candies, pickles, soups, breads, you name it! Its in there!

and many MANY more!

These are the recipes that are just plain old good eatin, and they don't cost a buncha money to make!

There are wonderful stories throughout the books, as well as Great photos (it's like looking through The family photo album full of pictures of the get together for your Aunt Bessy's Birthday.... You remember Aunt Bessy... she lives over yonder down the dirt road a spell near the river bottom.)

There are measurements like "Add enough till it feels right, kinda wet but not soggy"

There are some really good recipes in there! (the ones you forgot all about from years ago and wish you knew how to make? They are IN here!) There are even better pictures and stories!

I give them 3 out of 5 wooden spoons!


At the very least set em out on your kitchen counter when guests come over, and let the conversations begin!
