Our second cookbook, BOOK TWO is a continuation of the great Southern recipes that I grew up enjoying around Mama’s Big Oval Table. There were just too many recipes to pack them all in one book, so we made another one. BOOK TWO is also a coil bound cookbook, so it lays flat in the kitchen while you’re cooking, or it’s just easy to hold and read. We have 278 full color pages of recipes with over 1,000 step-by-step photos to guide you through preparing our recipes in your own kitchen. We’ve also included more photo’s from our family album and more stories I hope you’ll enjoy it. Like our first cookbook, this one is also 8.5″ x 11″ in size. Recipes are easy to follow, easy to prepare, and very delicious. Each book is signed by the author. Enjoy!

We Southerners love our sweets. Whether it’s pie, cake, candy, cookies or breads, we just love our sweets. We also love a good appetizer for when the family gathers together for special occasions. I’ve taken all the sweets and appetizer recipes from our first two cookbooks and compiled them into this Carolina Christmas Sweets and Appetizers Cookbook. I’ve also added recipes from our Taste of Southern website that didn’t make it into the first two books, and I’ve added some additional recipes that have yet to be published online. We’ve got a total of 123 recipes, step-by-step, photo illustrated with over 1,000 full color photos, to help you easily prepare our recipes at home. This is another large, coil bound book, 8.5″x11″ in size with 282 pages of recipes, family photo’s and Christmas stories from my youth. Order your copy today. Each book is signed by the author. Makes a great Christmas gift.

Presenting our very first cookbook…  “From Mama’s Big Oval Table”

Our first cookbook was released in January, 2021. Featuring 272 large, full color pages, with step-by-step, photo illustrated instructions for lots of our favorite Southern recipes. Includes recipes, family photos and family stories, all about great meals served from Mama’s Big Oval Table.

Coil-bound, (slightly different from the photo) full color, 272 pages highlighting many of our favorite recipes from our Taste of Southern website. Step-by-step, photo illustrated instructions guide you through the process of making some of the favorite dishes you could find on Mama’s Big Oval Table each and every Sunday.

We’ve got over 1,000 photos, including our recipes and a good number of old family photos and stories so you can get to know us better.

We’ve been posting the recipes that Mama taught us here on the Internet since January 01, 2012.

Now, we’ve compiled many of them into this very special cookbook for you to hold, use, and enjoy at home. We like to think its the almost perfect cookbook for those just learning how to cook, or for those that have been cooking for years. Everyone will find something they like.

From Appetizers, to breads, to main dish and side dish items, to desserts, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve also included a section of canning recipes to help you learn how to can and preserve food at home. Many of our canning recipes have won numerous ribbons in our regional and NC State Fair.

Then, we share some of our personal life story with you along with old photos from the family album. Family and friends tell us that’s one of their favorite parts of the book.

And, along with the step-by-step photos, you’ll also get printed step-by-step instructions to complete each item or dish. Perfect for those just beginning to learn to cook, or for the advanced chef as well. If you enjoy Southern cooking, I think you’ll enjoy our cookbook.


Over 40 years in the making…

I’ve wanted to publish my own cookbook since my radio days back in the late 70’s when radio listeners would call in to my talk radio program and share their favorite recipes with me on-the-air.

Now, thanks to the world of self-publishing and digital printing, I’m finally able to share these recipes with the readers of Taste of Southern.

Our cookbook is a large 8.5in x 11in. in size with larger print so it’s easy to read and follow along. The coil-bound edge binding means you can lay the book out flat on your counter, fold back pages with ease, or just relax with it in your easy chair and enjoy the family photos and stories.
