Book Twenty-Seven

My goal for several years has been to read 50 books in one calendar year – 52 weeks – but I have always fallen off the rails around 25 books. This year, I’m twice as determined. I will be posting short reviews of each book with my thoughts and any recommendations I received for the book as well as a link to purchase the book from Amazon, (though I recommend checking your local library first). If you have questions, leave a comment! If you want to follow my journey, find me on Goodreads.

This may be my favorite book of the entire year. Recommended by my dear friend, Donna, this one includes the secret to homemade mayonnaise and no less than six recipes for pimento cheese. I cannot make a casserole without thinking about the distinction between Episcopals and Methodists. The cameos included here may go by different names, but if you are southern you know these people. They are your neighbors, your mother’s best friends, and the ladies at your church. There are few things in life I love like southern wit, deviled eggs, and dying well. This will be a well-consulted member of my library for a long, long time.
