This book is ten years old, but it contains some amazingly ageless, down home simple fare. And I’m a big fan of that! Come on, you know you are too.

Beautiful color photos though out, showcase the delicious dishes included. There’s not a photo for every recipe, but enough to make readers mouths water.

Many of the chapters are broken down into individual meals. For instance, Gather ‘Round The Table breaks meals done by the day. Monday starts off the week with Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breast with Chile Cheese Sauce, and Red Potato and Green Bean Sauté, and Thursday brings Bobby’s Special Seared and Backed Thick-Cut Pork Chops, and Couscous Salad with Feta, Tomato, and Olives. Unfortunately, Friday seems to have been forgotten. Well, we can just eat out that night.

Other chapters contain meals to take on outings, classic favorite, and of course, desserts. You’ll find Tender Southern Pound Cake, Sweet Potato Meringue Pie, and Double-Fudge Bread Pudding. Yumola!

All in all, THE DEEN BROS. Y’ALL COME EAT is a recipe book I’m sure you’ll turn to often when you’re in the mood for simple comfort food dining.

Here’s the thing, my review is from 2018 for a book written in 2008. I found this $24.95 hardcover online at the for just $2.39! It appears to be out of print now, but the BookOut still has over 100 copies as of 3/37/18!

  1. Thanks, Lisa. “Ya’ll come eat” are words I like to hear! :) Happy Thursday.

  2. I love cookbooks with down home recipes. Like you, I want photos to show how it might turn out - not that mine looks as pretty as the photos at times. :)

    Thank you for the review and now I have another cookbook to explore.

    1. Kay, I grew up in a "meat & potato) house. We always had down home type meals.

  3. Like you, Lisa, I read cookbooks like they ate novels. Even if I only find one or two recipes I want to make in any particular, that book is worth buying. I always liked Paula's recipes and it sounds like the apples didn't fall far from her tree!! 😉

    Happy Reading.

    1. I would love to have seen your cookbook collection before you weeded it out.
