Embrace Your Southern, Sugar!
I feel fortunate to have started the New Year with a book that made me laugh out loud! This one had me remembering things from my past that I'd plum forgotten. But don't worry, you don't have to be a Southerner to enjoy this little gem. Just grab a glass of sweet iced tea, sit back (preferably on a front porch if you have one), and let Julia tell you all about what makes Southerners tick. Be it hospitality, health, the weather, or sports; she's pretty much covered it all in Embrace Your Southern, Sugar!
With humor and wit, she manages to capture not just what she adores about this unique region of the country but why she's so happy and comfortable with her own country roots. The only thing I was missing as I read this one was a slice of pecan pie. But Julia thought of that as well and included not one but two family recipes for this southern classic.
Thanks to LibraryThing and Gibbs Smith Publishing for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
