"This charming volume by the co-founder (with her mother, Callie) of Charleston-based Callie's Biscuits is a breath of fresh air in the cookbook world. Its friendly voice, interesting tips, and unique focus make it a worthwhile addition to southern cookbooks. It begins with a recipe for Callie's Classic Buttermilk Biscuits, and offers variations such as 'Black Pepper Biscuits,' 'Mom's Cinnamon Stickies,' and 'Southern Shortcakes.' From there, the author launches into a series of mouthwatering family recipes rich with Southern flavor: 'Pimento Cheese Shrimp and Grits,' 'Springtime Succotash with Bacon,' 'Vegetable Gratin,' 'Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Vinegar-Based BBQ Sauce,' and 'Summer Corn Salad.' Then there are the desserts, from 'Mama's Sour Cream Banana Pudding' to 'Drunk and Toasty Myers Pecan Pie' — they're not healthy, but they are definitely treats. And the final chapter on entertaining, with menus for themed events, including a Sit-Down Holiday Dinner, a kids' play date, is downright inspiring. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
