“We southerners love our stories and our food; we’ll eat and talk most anywhere, but we do a fine job of bringing the two together over a crowded dinner table. In Hungry Is a Mighty Fine Sauce, Shellie Tomlinson takes food and stories to a whole NEW level. It’s filled with funny stories about Shellie’s family and friends. Who doesn’t love the story about Lady, the holy ghost dog, and then there’s one about Shellie, her BFF Rhonda, and a practical joke that occurred at 25,000 feet. With all those great stories there is also a host of yummy recipes, like Shellie’s Mexican Lasagna, Mama’s Chicken and Dressing, Holiday Hurt Yourself Bread, and Aunt Judy’s Banana Nut Cake. And y’all, this is my favorite part—these recipes have ingredients I can find in my pantry and at my local grocery store. No obscure roots or unheard-of spice that you can only find in stores where they sell unicorn horns and fairy dust. Oh and the pictures—goodness, the pictures are gorgeous. Shellie combines flat out funny stories with mouthwatering recipes, and that makes this one of my favorite cookbooks—ever. I know what I’m getting everyone on my Christmas list this year!”
