To be “fixing to” means that you’re planning to do something. For Southerners, “fixing to” isn’t just an interesting turn of phrase—it’s a whole state of mind. Others might say they’re about to eat, but Southerners say they’re fixin’ to eat.

Whether you’re new to Southern cookery, or just looking for new inspiration, this bounty of homestyle recipes from breakfast to dessert (and every meal in between) is sure to make your mouth water. Between courses, “Libation Lessons” will show you how to pair Southern food with your favorite beer, wine, and spirits.

Add a little bit of love—the secret ingredient that makes good food great—and you’ll be Fixin’ to Eat! (Goodreads)

*I received an eARC of this book to review.*

The recipes featured in this book are pretty easy and I liked how quickly it flowed from one recipe to another. However, to me at least, this was more of a Southern-inspired cookbook than an actual book of southern recipes. I was born and raised in the south, so I am aware that different regions have different takes on things but I had never heard of pretty much any of the variations in this book (except for the biscuits). The versions in this cookbook are interesting though, and I think I may try some of them when I am feeling adventurous.

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5
