Reviews

"I bought this as a gift for a friend visiting from out of state. Not only is it chock full of wonderful southern recipes, it also has pages here and there with trivia and information about the state of Arkansas. My friend was delighted with those little "extras" and I think it made a great souvenir for her.." --C. Pine


"Being from Arkansas, naturally I was drawn to this book. I also collect cookbooks so I have learned to weed out the ones that tend to be too extravagant for my everyday meals. This cookbook has all the wonderful, Southern-style, home-made recipes I grew up enjoying. It is a compilation of the best recipes from fifty-four different cookbooks from my home state. Historic pictures and interesting tid-bits about Arkansas are scattered through out this collection of tried and true recipes. I know I will enjoy using this cookbook for many years to come and it has already become one of my favorites when I am looking for something yummy to cook!" --J. Johnson
