Jack Daniel's Cookbook, Stories and Kitchen Secrets from Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House,
by Lynne Tolley and Mindy Merrell

If you are interested in Southern cooking, this has some excellent recipes. There is Jack Daniel's whiskey in places I wouldn't put it, but I think it works fine in barbeque sauce. There's a long chapter on barbeque and grilling. Southern standbys like cornbread recipes and coffeecakes abound. The fried chicken recipes, or rather, instructions, are what I remember from neighbors in my childhood in Maryland. Anecdotes from the old boarding house add to this unusual book. Not much for vegetarians, and there is bacon grease in recipes that have usually written it out in the 21st century.

My paternal grandmother was a southern cook. I loved her fried chicken, but when she served other meats, I would sometimes just eat the spaghetti with tomato sauce (and bacon grease), the potato casserole (with bacon grease), the cole slaw (with bacon grease), and the cornbread and biscuits (with bacon grease or lard). It was insanely tasty.
