Review; A Good Meal Is Hard to Find: Storied Recipes from the Deep South (Southern Cookbook, Soul Food Cookbook) by Amy C. Evans and Martha Hall Foose

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cookbook A Good Meal Is Hard to Find: Storied Recipes from the Deep South (Southern Cookbook, Soul Food Cookbook) by Amy C. Evans and Martha Hall Foose through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
A Good Meal Is Hard to Find is more than just a cookbook: it's a love letter to the women and food of the Deep South.

With charming narratives, visual storytelling, and delectable recipes, A Good Meal Is Hard to Find is everything you've ever wanted in a Southern cookbook.

Inside are 60 go-to recipes organized into five chapters—Morning's Glories, Lingering Lunches, Dinner Dates & Late-Night Takes, Afternoon Pick-Me-Ups, and Anytime Sweets. Recipes written by award-winning cookbook author and Southern food expert Martha Hall Foose, as part of a collaboration with Amy C. Evans.

• Each of the 60 recipes opens with a short vignette about a story about a unique Southern character.
• Divided into five chapters from breakfast to dinner, with cocktails and desserts in between
• Recipes paired with gorgeous, vintage-inspired acrylic paintings by Amy C. Evans

Inspired by generations of storytelling and Southern comfort food, this genre-bending cookbook is a must-have for cookbook lovers, vintage collectors, and Southern cooking enthusiasts alike.

Recipes include Francine's Strawberry-Glazed Doughnuts, Camille's Bridge Club Egg Salad, The Suzy B's Spinach and Mushroom Frito Pie, Stella's Harissa Gold Chicken, and Estelle's Butterscotch Pound Cake.

My Thoughts on the Book
This cookbook has some amazing artwork as well as some fun and easy recipes, several in which I really want to try, such as St. Anthony's Rosemary Braised Rabbit.
