From Down-Home Deviled Eggs with Smoky Bacon to silky and light Spicy Carrot-Ginger Soup to the ultimate Chicken Pot Pie with buttery crust on the bottom to her Granny's unforgettably luscious Five-Flavor Pound Cake, Carla's flavorful recipes are so deeply satisfying, they ll become family favorites in your kitchen.
For Carla, the only way to make truly comforting food is to cook it from the heart, and in "Cooking with Love," she shows you that love with her tempting, inspiring recipes for all sorts of sumptuous dishes, displayed in beautiful full-color photographs.

"Whoever put this book in your hands loves you - and you're about to love them right back! Carla is a born teacher. Full of useful insights, helpful quick-fixes learned from years of trial and error, and her signature humor (and patience), Cooking With Love puts Ms. Hootie Hoo herself right there at the stove next to you, every step of the way. Whether you're a novice or expert, she'll have you dancing into the kitchen to whip up unbelievably simple, sumptuous feasts from scratch, whether it's weeknight Buffalo Wing Burgers, or The Saints' Gumbo for a weekend get together. If I'm coming to dinner, please make the Groundnut Stew - it's my favorite!"
“Carla Hall knocks it out of the park with her first book, all about love, tradition, family, flavor and style, and flavor again. Her true natural ability to make things delicious is all over every single recipe. I love working with Carla on “The Chew” every day and simply get jiggy every time we get to taste her magic on set. With this sweet tome in the home kitchen anyone can make thoughtful tasty food with real style.”
“As a cook who enjoys kitchen experiments, I love Carla’s stories of how she develops her delicious dishes, tinkering with flavor combinations until she gets them just right. And they really are just right. And what a range: her rustic mushroom tart is great and Granny’s five-flavor pound cake is worth the price of the book.”
