Sat, Nov 15, 2pm
Kitchen goddess Jean Anderson pops in to share with us her latest, Mad about Muffins: 70 Amazing Muffin Recipes. Not only will Jean show us how to correctly mix muffin batter, but rumor has it that we will have hot samples right out of the oven. To put it simply, when Jean Anderson says she has the perfect way to mix muffins -- you better believe it. She is a six-time best cookbook award winner (James Beard, IACP, and Tastemaker), as well as a member of the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame and a founding member of both Les Dames d'Escoffier and the New York Women's Culinary Alliance.

Saturday, November 22nd at 11am, get ready to have your socks knocked off -- Sheri Castle is back with The Southern Living Community Cookbook. Many of you know Sheri as an amazing cook and food writer. For her latest book, she delved into all of those classic comb (and otherwise) bound community cookbooks, tested favorite recipes and compiled this beautifully curated collection. I am adding one to my library and expect it to be a big cookbook this upcoming holiday season.

Then later that day at 2pm...we celebrate the latest additions to the Savor the South cookbook series with Debbie Moose and April McGreger. This is the perfect time to solve those last minute holiday cooking conundrums. Ms. Moose literally has written the book on Southern Holidays. It is a cook's celebration of the richly diverse holiday traditions of today's South. Covering big traditional holidays such as Christmas and Mardi Gras, this must-have collection also branches out into regional and cultural holidays that honor newer southern traditions, including recipes from real cooks hailing from a range of ethnic traditions and histories. Debbie Moose is an award-winning food writer and author of many cookbooks

In Sweet Potatoes, this paean to the brightly colored root, April McGreger tells the multifaceted history of a fundamental southern food, praising its rich and diverse savory-to-sweet flavor profile, botanical varieties, and shockingly high nutritional value. Along with instructions for selection and storage, McGreger shares the fifty best sweet potato recipes in the world. Ms. McGregor grew up on her family's sweet potato farm in Mississippi and brings her infinite wisdom from her work as founder-chef of Farmer's Daughter, a farm-driven artisan food business in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

*cue Superman theme song* Just in time, on Saturday, December 6th at 11am, Anne Byrn Saves the Day: 125 Guaranteed-To-Please, Go-To Recipes to Rescue Any Occasion. Seriously, Anne Byrn, perhaps better known as The Cake Doctor, is a problem-solver extraordinaire, who knows what every too-busy cook knows. There are a gazillion recipes in the world, but the right recipe, the recipe that always works, the lifesaving recipe for when times are crazy -- that's priceless. She presents 125 of these guaranteed tried-and-true recipes for every occasion. Whether they are Anne Byrn's own family favorites or collected from her network of fans across the country, So, it would seem, we now have nothing to fear about our holiday cooking!
