    I don't entertain, and don't cook all that much either, but I do like to look at cookbooks even when I know I'm not going to cook any of the recipes. This book had some tasty-sounding recipes and beautiful pictures but unfortunately not for all of the dishes. (At least the pictures were not in the PDF of the book that I received.) Some of the recipes were adapted from community recipe books. There's a heavy use of cheese, mayo and frying so it's ...

    I love appetizers and hor d’oeuvres. They’re my favorite part of a holiday meal or going out to eat. I could make a meal out of them. And sometimes at home, I do. So, I was thrilled to find SOUTHERN SNACKS. The first thing I did when I opened this book was look at all the photos. Sadly, there isn’t a photo for every recipe (that’s my hang-up), but the photos that are included made my stomach growl, my mouth water, and my grocery bill go u...

    I'm a southerner so this book immediately spoke to me but you don't have to be southern for it to speak to you. I'm always looking for fun bites to try because not only do I love to cook, I also enjoy the looks on peoples faces when they eat something I've put together. This book came at a great time for me, my dad will be turning 70 in August and I've been looking for new recipes to make for a party we are having for him. Let me tell you this bo...

    I normally don't review cookbooks, but I tasted the sweet tea brined pork tenderloin with sweet tea mustard and I have to say, it was AMAZING, yall! I also really love that this book mentions good-quality ingredients, like using Duke's mayo (which is the only mayo I will cook with) and Crystal hot sauce-- which is the best, fight me. I can't wait to do more cooking out of this book.

    This book contained some great southern party snacks. Though not the healthiest of choices they seem simple and easy enough to prepare during summer bbq season. The author also provided background on where these recipes originated from and added her own unique twists to some of them. The Collard Green Pimento dip sounds like a must try recipe.

    "Southern Snacks" provides you with an array of appetizers that capitalize on the flavors of southern cooking and often serve them up with just enough of a twist to be something new and different. With each recipe, there are notes about the inspiration or original source for the receipe. Reading through this cookbook, I was immediately making a list of the recipes that I want to make - maybe to take for a next gathering and others to just nibble ...

    Southern Snacks by Perre Magness Coleman is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early September.This book offers chapters on dips, cheesy, deep-fried, and nutty things (sometimes all three at once), seafood, meat, and veg, plus acknowledged storytelling offshoots with titles, like 'Ro-Tel,' 'Ham Dust,' Crawfish Boil,' and 'Koolickles,' oftentimes with their own suggested menus. There's a neutral color scheme, generally along the same lines of, ...

    Perre Coleman Magness certainly knows his Southern dishes as is evident in Southern Snacks. There are a variety of small delicious bite-size recipes in this book along with some wonderful tales to go with them. I loved the story of Hollywood even though I am not a dill pickle fan. The recipes are categorized into groups such as Dips and Spreads; Cheese, Please; Deep-Fried Love; Seafood and Eat It; The Meat of the Matter; The Garden Path; Nuts for...

    I loved every recipe I found in SOUTHERN SNACKS ... and there are 77 for “small bites with big flavors!” Adore the colorful design and really pretty photos in this terrific cookbook by Perre Coleman Magness, cook and writer behind the website The Runaway Spoon, which focuses on creative recipes with a Southern slant. Every kind of snack ... for a football game, party, special occasion ... is featured, many inspired by southern community cookb...

    I received a copy of this for a fair and honest review. I am a lover of book and snack is a nice way to get a lot of little tastes of this that are all over the map. This is from the south and I think the cheese section of the cookbook was my favorite besides the fried section. I love to fried foods. There is always a section on seafood. Hard to get that in my land locked state of Montana. There are a few other sections but I mentioned my favorit...

    I received an Advanced Reader Copy from University of North Carolina Press for my unbiased opinion of the book. OMG, this cookbook had me salivating from the first recipe page. This book makes me feel that I am back south of the Mason-Dixon line! I gratefully tried hot Vidalia onion souffle, Kentucky beer cheese, party tomato pies, Bama wings with white sauce, and beef tenderloin with blue cheese biscuits and green onion butter. I loved it all!!!...

    Great idea, a book full of Southern style snacks, flavourful and often fried and with bacon or mayo! I kid, even though it is true...I enjoyed reading through this book, and got a lot of good ideas for party and holiday gathering foods. The instructions were clear, the photos were very well done, and the recipe selection was varied moderately enough - not recommended for plant-based diets! This should do very well in our library.*eARC Netgalley*

    Make you wanna slap your Mama!!Please note that I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.I absolutely adored this gem of a cookbook. Not only are the recipes accessible, I love that Perre Coleman Magness shared so many memories. Not only of food, but places and people. My family is from Lawrenceburg, TN so the author's recollection of time spend in Columbia was so familiar and warming. Just a reminder than food, memories and the Sout...

This cookbook offers 77 recipes for full flavor southern snacks, good for everything from potlucks to tailgating. Many of the recipes are either borrowed from or inspired by southern community cookbooks, home cooks, and chefs who put new twists on southern flavo...

    I love cookbooks and have many, many great books in my collection. This one has earned its space on my shelf. Travelling with my husband in the Air Force, we spent a few years in the South. Many of these recipes remind of cooking with our friends and the snacks that we enjoyed at many a gathering. I've been looking for a great recipe for fried pickles and this one just might be the winner!

    Starting a cookbook with a recipe for "Mississippi Sin' is not a bad thing in my view :D. This book is elegantly designed with simple recipes (although I'd prefer numbered step-by-step rather than narrative) that I can't wait to make. I've marked quite a few, since I tend to do themed dinners (and my 'southern' menu needs inspiration for sure -- which I've found in "Southern Snacks". The cheese-focused recipes alone stoked my appetite and how wou...

    I was very excited with I was selected to preview this book. I love cooking and am always looking for new recipes. This one being Southern Snacks I knew I would find something. There will be several appearing at a homegate this fall. They even share possible recipe choices for tailgates, Derby Day, Sunday afternoon get togethers and many more. You will find recipes using ingredients that are so totally southern such as black eyed peas and country...

    I was so excited to read this book about Southern snacks. Some I had never heard of and wish to try. Being from the South, I understand the concept of having something to offer people when they visit. Now I have many more foods to add. If you like southern cooking or just good food, you will love these recipes. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.
