Anyone who loves soul food will be excited to pick up Rosie Mayes’ cookbook, I Heart Soul Food: 100 Southern Comfort Food Favorites . Mayes, whose personality is reflected in both the prose and recipes, is delightful, and makes the book fun to read as well as to choose what to make today and most likely every day from now on. Unless you are from the South and have been making soul food for years, there will be something new for you in this excellent cookbook. The recipes are so tempting that you will want to lock yourself in the kitchen and cook for a week or so. The recipes include classic soul food dishes, as well as some new twists.

The recipes are easy to follow, and are written in standard recipe form. Most are fairly easy, so even beginning cooks will be able to make them picture perfect. The photographs, which are of most of the dishes, are beautiful and make the recipes even more tempting. Another plus is that most of the ingredients can be easily obtained at any mainstream grocery store. The important thing is what Mayes does with those ingredients, and that’s what will make almost everyone love this book.

Anyone who wants to learn to make good, authentic soul food will definitely want to pick up this excellent cookbook. The recipes turn out how they are supposed to and are delicious. Highly recommended.
