Katherine’s Southern Cooking

Katherine's Southern Cooking - Katherine Baldwin

This book has 40 step by step recipes that cover most of the traditional Southern foods that I learned how to cook from my Mother and Grandmother. However, I have adjusted them to use extra virgin olive oil and spices instead of the traditional method of seasoning them with salt pork and bacon drippings. I have included a full nutritional analysis for those items so you can decide which method you use to season your food.

You will find appetizers like Cheese Straws and Asparagus Roll Ups and a few more. It covers the breads like Buttermilk Biscuits, Cornbread Dressing, and Hushpuppies.

The Main Dishes section gives you recipes for Baked Ham, Chicken Pot Pie, Fried Flounder, Roasted Chicken with instructions for 3 different methods of roasting it. And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a Southern Style Deep Fried Chicken recipe.

The Side Dishes have those traditional family reunion inspired casseroles such as Asparagus Casserole, Broccoli Casserole, and Cheesy Potato Casserole. It also covers Collard Greens, Creamed Style Corn, Macaroni and Cheese, and Creamy Mashed Potatoes.

If you are looking for great recipes for Dessert, you have got to try the Banana Pudding and the Southern Sweet Potato Souffle.

The recipes in this book will have the number of servings, preparation time and total time from start to finish. Your time may vary if you are just starting to learn to cook. There is also a nutritional analysis with each recipe calculated using the USDA database, Version SR-24.

So, grab your copy now just in time to impress your family and friends for the holidays.

    So if I buy this book I won’t have to buy a diet book?

  3. Eric Goldberg January 26, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    I’m not from the South. Can I buy this book?

    • Editor January 26, 2013 at 11:24 am #

      In this case we can make an exception.

    This is the food of my childhood. I love how you’ve made the familiar meals healthier.

    I have to add this to my library.

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 7:46 am #

      Thanks Lynn! Healthier is always better.

    Hi, I liked and pinned her book. Looks really good. The picture on the cover makes me hungry. She looks like she’s doing OK. She has 24 reviews and all but one are 4 or 5 star. That’s pretty good.

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 7:58 am #

      Hey James, thanks for the Pin.

  7. Gerald Patterson January 26, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    This looks like the Blue Plate Special in the “Chew and Chat Cafe” in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Fond memories.

    Just shared this on Facebook, and will buy once I get access to my laptop!
    (On my phone on a date now… Interestingly, my wife is having meatloaf with mashed potatoes and corn succotash.

    Congratulations, and good luck with your book launch!

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:27 am #

      Wow Bolaji O, that’s a few of my favorite things too. Gotta love meatloaf – the singer and the food.

  9. Joan Marie Verba January 26, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    Already left a nice review for this cookbook. Katherine does it well!

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 7:49 am #

      Again, much thanks Joan. You do it well too, lol. Love your books.

  10. Clay January 26, 2013 at 12:28 pm #

    WooHoo! Probably better than my mom made but she didn’t write the book. Nice cover photo too… :-)

  11. Robert Blake January 26, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

    Awww man. I am gonna have to report Katherine’s Southern Cooking book cover to the Food Porn Police! Because all of that sinful good food looking back at me is causing me to think wild and crazy thoughts. :-)

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:30 am #

      Me too Robert. Think I’m going to make fried chicken tonight.

  12. Britt Malka January 26, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

    This sounds awesome. I’ve never tasted southern food, but it sounds tasty from your description.

  13. Gautam January 26, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    Liked, tweeted and posted in FB about Kathy’s book:)

  14. Kim Hald January 26, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    This is great, I love the nutritional analysis with each recipe.


  15. Coach Comeback January 26, 2013 at 1:07 pm #

    Great description!!! Really! Mouth watering! This sounds like it would be any chef’s dream.

    I guess that I why I miss my dad’s home cooking so much!

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:34 am #

      Yes, many memories in these pages.

  16. Tony January 26, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

    So much for the new years diet resolution, did’nt think I would make it much past January anyway.

  17. Gordon Wong January 26, 2013 at 1:46 pm #

    My wife and I are on the hunt for the best fried chicken. We’ve gone to many recommended places around our area. We will definitely look at your fried chicken recipe.

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:36 am #

      It’s great being able to make your own. You can tweek it to suit your taste.

  18. Linda January 26, 2013 at 2:04 pm #

    I always enjoy finding new recipes that contain healthy choices and alternatives. My family will love these recipes, and I will love that they are better for them.

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:36 am #

      Thanks Linda.

  19. Lauree January 26, 2013 at 2:08 pm #

    I am also not from the south, but I purchased anyway! And I am looking forward to making a number of the recipes soon! Here are some I particularly liked:

    I love savouries, so the Asparagus Roll Ups and the Holiday Cheese Ball look like becoming real favourites.

    Hamburger Pie looks interesting — I like that I don’t have to cook the meat first.

    The Cocktail Sauce will be nice and easy, and being able to make sufficient for one meal will mean it is really fresh — much nicer than store-bought.

    An enticing combination of flavours in the Southern Sweet Potato Souffle — although not a fan of desserts myself, my husband loves them, so I think I will make it for his birthday in a couple of weeks.

    I also liked being able to check the nutritional information.

    Congratulations to Katherine!

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:38 am #

      Thank you Lauree. I agree that fresh is always better. Hope your husband enjoys the Sweet Potato Souffle.

  20. Charity January 26, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

    Being from Atlanta, I love Southern cooking! Good luck with the book. :)

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:39 am #

      Thanks Charity and good luck with all of your books.

  21. Cheryl Antier January 26, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

    I’ve been working on my own cookboosk, so you’d think I’d be tired of looking at recipes – but just reading the blurbs about the recipes made my mouth water… This sounds like a book I need to have in my library!

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:40 am #

      Thanks Cheryl. There is no such thing as too many recipes, lol.

  22. Stan Allen January 26, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    Hey – looks good to me. I’m off to the kitchen to try it out and stuff my face with southern goodies. Do like the way it’s written and am happy to leave a positive review on Amazon.

  23. Jimmy Johnson January 26, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I like how you have adjusted the recipes to be more healthy and included nutritional value information, I love Southern foods!

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:45 am #

      Thanks Jimmy. I think it’s important to include the nutritional information. A lot of people need to pay attention to their food values for many different reasons.

  24. Marg Ruttan January 26, 2013 at 2:57 pm #

    Looks like a great book! Liked and will purchase shortly.
    I’d love to review your course, Paul.

      Thanks Alan.

  29. Flora M. Brown January 26, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

    Southern cooking with nutrition facts? Great as I’m moving toward eating healthier. But this cookbook also shows that there are some things that can not be substituted, like salt pork.

    I’m looking forward to cooking the hush puppies and the fried okra. Yum!

    Thanks for the free copies of your course also.

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:49 am #

      Yeah, I kinda went out on a limb choosing that topic for my next book, but I just had to do it, lol. My family demanded it.

  30. Carol Clifford January 26, 2013 at 4:36 pm #

    WOW – now I can pretend to be in the land of Fried Green Tomatoes and Steel Magnolias without leaving the house.

    Absolutely love this book and like to test out recipes for books I review so dinner is looking good at the moment.

    • Katherine Baldwin January 27, 2013 at 9:51 am #

      Absolutely Carol. Repeat after me: “Hey Ya’ll”

  31. Editor January 26, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    All these comments are making me hungry!

    The fried chicken looks as good as that from Mitchie’s tavern at Montecello. I can’t wait to try it.
