Fans of romance book author Sheryl Woods will love tilting the focus from romance to food, since both aspects of human life are entwined. Author Woods writes, "Since the Sweet Magnolias series began, many of you have asked about recipes for some of the dishes mentioned. Here they are, along with many, many more created by Teddi [Wohlford] who (like Dana Sue) has put a new spin on many traditional Southern dishes and kicked 'em up a notch."
Writing introductions to each chapter in the character of Dana Sue, Ms. Woods keeps romance (and a wee bit of gossip) in the air, dividing into the following sections:
-Sweet Magnolias Margarita Nights
-Sullivan's Restaurant Specialties of the House
-Serenity Farmers' Market
-Sunday Brunch at Sullivan's
-Mama Cruz's Recipe File
-Chef Erik's Decadent Desserts
-The Corner Spa's Low-Cal Healthy Selections
-Holidays & Get-togethers
While fans will relish seeing their favorite characters and locations, anyone can enjoy the scrumptious recipes that take you from morning to night, from family dinners to holidays made for lasting memories. You'll find the recipes loved by Woods and Wohlford whose roots are firmly tied to the south. Enjoy recipes such as Dana Sue's Killer Guacamole, Helen's Lethal Margaritas, Sweet Potato Biscuit, Uptown Down-South Cheese Grits, Three-Cheese Macaroni Casserole,and Backyard Low-Country Seafood Boil. Sweeten your palate with Southern Cream Cheese Pound Cake, Fresh Peach Macaroon Tart, or Southern Supreme Red Velvet Cake.
There are color photographs throughout that illustrate how to serve romantic, and tasty food.
