southern dishes with a twist

Book Description from the publisher:

She offers a taste of her family table with dishes like Southern Horchata, PB&J Chicken Satay, Dehydrated Okra Chips, Sweet Corn Grit Tamales, Peach Bread Pudding with Sweet Tea Rum Sauce, and much more.

My Review:
"Whitney Miller's new southern table" is a great new cookbook to add to your collection!  I love the variety of recipes included in this book.  It is a nice mix of "everyday" recipes with a little twist her or there and then recipes that I have never made, but sound delicious and I cannot wait to make them.  This book is divided into sections based upon the type of recipes, including Sunday dinners, company's comin', breakfast, socials and snacks and family suppers to name a few.  Dessert Toast and the toppings bar to accompany it is such a cute idea and would be fun to set up with kids, maybe as part of a sleepover.  I love cobblers and peaches and sweet tea and there is nothing more southern than Whitney's recipe for Sweet Tea Peach Cobbler, this sounds amazing and I cannot wait to try this in the near future.  The photographs of the food included in this book make everything look so appealing as well.  This is a cookbook that I will use over and over again.
