Quick-Fix Southern: Homemade Hospitality in 30 Minutes of Less: A Review

Quick-Fix Southern: Homemade Hospitality in 30 Minutes or Less
Rebecca Lang
Andrews McMeel Publishing

My Thoughts: We love “southern food” so I pounced at the opportunity to review Lang’s newest cookbook. All of her 115 recipes can be made in thirty minutes or less (great for this working mom of 6) and are flavorful and satisfying.

My favorites so far are: Slow Cooker Boiled Peanuts, Spiced Pecans (virtually free from our trees!), Chicken Boudine and Double Chocolate Scoop Pie. I am also looking forward to trying her Slow Cooker Pot Roast!

I highly recommend Quick-Fix Southern: Homemade Hospitality in 30 Minutes or Less as a wonderful addition to any kitchen!
