- Linda J. Hawkins
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine recently reviewed Southern Seasons #1, and are giving a copy away this month to one fortunate reader. This is what they had to say:
"Linda J. Hawkins’ lovely award-winning cookbook Southern Seasons with Memory Making Recipes has 182 pages of beautiful photos and family recipes, with an internal spiral binding which allows the book to lie flat (so helpful for cooks!). It costs $27.99 and is available at Heart to Heart Publishing.
Linda J. Hawkins is both a mother and a grandmother and the descendant of gifted cooks in her own Southern family from Kentucky. She has combined her family’s recipes with her own photographs of nature, events, and people (as well as food) with meaningful quotes and Bible verses to create a book that is at once a devotional, an encouragement for moms (and families), and a cookbook of recipes keyed to the four seasons of each year.
Southern Seasons with Memory Making Recipes begins with recipes for the winter season, specifically, with cakes! Then Linda shares meaty skillet dinners and soups, including his and hers chiliis, stews, soups, and chowders. Spring recipes are next with picnic food ideas followed by delicious pie recipes and old-fashioned desserts. In the summer section, Linda shares delicious-sounding canning recipes and many delicious recipes like Corn Pudding, her Great-Granny’s Tea Cakes, Peanut Brittle, and Chocolate Spinach Cake. Fall begins with sweet treats featuring nuts as the main ingredients in cakes and fudges. A Thanksgiving menu starts with cornbread dressing, homemade mashed potatoes, broccoli casserole, and cranberry Jell-O salad.
Each section also includes tips for entertaining, meal preparation, pantry staples, etiquette tips, and child training. Ideas for making mealtimes fun and saving money inspire families to connect as well, and Scriptures and loving quotes encourage the cook as she pages through the book.
There is so much more to this book of encouragement with recipes; so go and read the full review to get all the inside information!
