Add a Pinch Cookbook Cover //

The book is filled with family-friendly recipes that solve the dilemma of what’s for supper! You’ll find that the recipes are indeed easier, faster and fresher Southern classics with tips on sharing dishes with others and entertaining, how to recreate leftovers into another meal your family will love, tips on how to make recipes even easier, and a few simple swaps to lighten up many of those favorite Southern dishes.

The book also includes handy icons to guide you to recipes with 10 ingredients or fewer, that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, meals that are freezer friendly and slow cooker favorites! In short, it is the cookbook that I’ve wanted in my own cookbook collection for years and that I hope you’ll find useful and as a valued resource!

Love ya!

Publisher’s Weekly says “Stone shows how a Southern cook balances traditional with modern, making her own cream of chicken soup to be deployed instead of the canned version. Vegetables include the gratifyingly regional, such as butter beans, okra, and collard greens, in approachable preparations, and a classic condiment whose time might finally have arrived: suitable-for-canning, authentic chow chow.” 12/19/2016
