If you’re not already a Reba McIntire fan, you will be after reading her book, Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots. Not only does it include mouthwatering recipes, it is sort of a biography and self help book with advice from Reba herself.
Since almost everyone loves southern food, the recipes really stand out. Reba has included her own southern recipes and others from friends. Some of the recipes have a little twist from traditional southern fare, and others don’t seem particularly southern at all. However, there really isn’t a recipe in this fun cookbook that people won’t want to try. The recipes are presented in the standard manner, with Reba’s comments and hints at the beginning, followed by a list of ingredients, and step-by-step instructions to insure a picture-perfect result.

Included are beautiful, professional photographs of almost every dish, as well as photos of Reba over the years. The pictures make the food seem mouthwatering, and the pictures of Reba make her seem real and very likeable.

All told, this is one book you’ll want to curl up in the corner and read cover to cover. Before reading, you’ll want to make a few of the recipes to sample because you’ll be tempted to quit reading and cook some extremely yummy dishes. Reba fans will definitely want this fun cookbook on their recipe shelf.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
