Description: Enjoy mouth-watering Southern cooking at its very best with this collection of 120 authentic regional recipes from Miss Mary Bobo. For nearly 80 years, this delicious fare -- filling, remarkably economical, and easy to fix -- has been a delight to anyone lucky enough to pass through Lynchburg, Tennessee and visit her boarding house. Now you and your family can take pleasure in these same recipes right in your home. 

Miss Mary's main dishes are simple, nourishing food that satisfies every time. Easy-to-fix BBQ Pork Chops are juicy and tender, for example, with a hearty flavor that comes from the barbecue basting sauce. Classic Southern Fried Chicken is delicately crisp and browned on the outside, moist and tender within. This chicken makes you wonder if it would ever be possible to eat "take-out" again! 

The side dishes are also "real special" -- everyone will want to fill up his plate and come back for "seconds." Mustard and Turnip Greens are a Southern standby that's perfect accompanied by wedges of Skillet Corn Bread. Cheese-Topped Mashed Potatoes are a wonderful example of Miss Mary's ingenuity when it comes to making ordinary favorites taste extraordinary. And don't miss out on Stewed Tomato Casserole -- it's a longtime Southern favorite rarely found in other parts of the country, which is a pity, because it's marvelous with almost any meat dish. 

Most of the incredible breads and rolls take only a few minutes to put together. The Corn Muffins are the lightest and freshest-tasting you'll ever have, while the irresistible, just-out-of-the-oven aroma of the Hot Rolls will create a nostalgia for the type of family cooking you thought you'd never enjoy again. 

Desserts are the crowning glory of the Southern kitchen and Miss Mary's was no exception. Sample the regional specialties you may never have heard of -- delectable favorites like Caramel Meringue Pie with its creamy, pudding-like filling, or one of the classics, such as Mississippi Mud Cake, Glazed Strawberry Pie, and Banana Custard Pudding. Bonus: Holiday treats, from Sweet Potatoes with Pecans to Tennessee Whiskey Cake.
