Item Description...
In these pages are recipes Paula has collected from many great Southern cooks in her family and circle of friends as well as many she has tweaked and/or invented. She also includes personal thoughts, observations and stories from her extremely varied, interesting and sometimes bizarre life. From Fried Spam sandwiches to BBQ bologna to the glorious Hawaiian Pie, Paula's recipes will delight you and the Things I Have Learned section...well...check it out! She has cooked in the woods of East Texas in clay ovens with the Rainbow Family, at Morningstar Commune in the 60's, for community dinners for the homeless, for the Red Cross during disasters, and in her home where friends told her for years to write a cookbook. She has finally taken their advice. Feeding people feeds her soul. Hopefully this book will leave you satisfied. Comfort food is Paula's idea of heaven...come on up!

Fun and Interesting, Lots of Good, Simple Recipes  Jun 4, 2008
This book brought me home to Southeast Texas with such an unexpected bang that I got a little teary-eyed. Many of the recipes are throw backs to my childhood and bring to mind vegetables still warm from the garden, and stick-to-your-ribs-who-cares-about-your-waist comfort food I had long since forgotten. Despite the title, there are some healthy recipes in the book, especially when you consider food a big player in your mental health, as I do. Everyone needs a little comfort sometimes, and there's nothing better than a homegrown tomato sandwich to make you feel like the world is on your side! There's some stuff in here that is so simple, you'll wonder why she bothered with a recipe for it (that is, if you don't bother reading the story attached). There is also a lot of stuff you will never, ever find a recipe for anywhere else. It has what I love in a cookbook--adventure, treasure, trade secrets. It's a fun and easy read with a lot of great little stories--a nice surprise in a genre that is often overly formal, dry and to-the-point. This book definitely meanders.

There are stories throughout, so it is both cookbook, memoir, and novel to some degree, though she keeps it simple. You get an idea where the food came from, how it was enjoyed, and what it means to the author. You get a little history and a little culture, and a lot of tasty, satisfying recipes that won't stretch your budget or your time too much. My favorite recipes were the "in the woods" recipes. I have always loved the challenge of cooking while camping, or in any other situation where I had to problem-solve and be resourceful. This book will arm you with some bulk outdoor cooking ideas you may never have come across if you never lived in a commune or worked the kitchen for a Rainbow Family gathering. Do you like the Foxfire books? It's a similar feeling--trade secrets. Of course, I also loved the family recipes for staples like brisket, red beans and rice, posole, several pies, casseroles, and "dead birds and clouds" (aka chicken and dumplings).

Finally, some cookbooks are just cookbooks, which is fine and good, but cookbooks with stories about food, linking that food to the culture of the time and place the author is writing about and even the author herself, are special treats for food lovers and people watchers like myself. This is one of those special ones.
