Happy New Year, everyone!
What better way to start off a fresh new year than with a great new cookbook brimming with an abundance of new recipes?
I’ve been so excited to write my very first cookbook review — especially since this is a cookbook I am greatly enjoying!
I was immediately drawn to Whitney Miller’s new cookbook, New Southern Table, because fabulous recipes with southern warmth and charm is most definitely a winning combination! Gorgeous photos and heart-warming tales of Ms. Miller’s family traditions are delightfully interwoven throughout the book, giving the reader a genuine taste of true southern hospitality. From classic favorites with a new twist to a toasted coconut cream pie with chocolate and pecans, this wonderful cookbook is sure to become a family favorite! With three of the chapters entitled “Family Suppers“, “Sunday Dinners” and “Company’s Comin’“, I am equally inspired to gather together and re-connect at the family dinner table with loved ones! Menu inspiration is plentiful with recipes such as Smoked Brisket, Olive Oil Biscuits, Sweet Potato Cornbread and Sweet Corn Grits. Ms. Miller’s dessert selection is a chapter that is near and dear to my heart! (as well as my sweet tooth!) Her Brownie Cookies are moist, rich and chocolaty — but wait, there’s more! As if this cookie recipe wasn’t already amazing on its own, it can be delightfully transformed into not one, but two Mississippi Mudd Pies that are sheer bliss! I found the recipe for two 9″ pies to perfectly encompass the tradition of southern charm — one for you, and another to share!
Whitney Miller has graciously shared her Brownie Cookie recipe on her lovely website — I’m sure you will also enjoy reading more about her!
I made the brownie cookie recipe this week — need I say more? I think the chocolate picture speaks volumes!
I also made her recipe for Mississippi Mudd Pie which can be found in her new cookbook — page 262 in case you are already on your way to buy it — which I highly recommend!
Another picture that speaks volumes …
A piece of that wonderful pie!
