Only wish that they had the money to print ALL the quilts in full color, but the book is still a delight. The quilt theme is very nice and attractive. Great recipes for a person with diabetes and high blood pressure.

Yes, there is a historical legacy of black cooking in this country, no matter how white bread things may seem now-the legacy of African slave women who started inventing "Southern cooking" 200 years ago with an elegant, vivid amalgam of African, British and New World elements while sustaining their own families on ingredients that didn't make it to the Big House. But to look at some of the new cookbooks you'd think their still-loved heritage was fit only to be scrubbed and expurgated.

I love cookbooks that provide narrative.

I liked many of the recipes but some I won't make.

I've enjoyed owning The Black Family Reunion Cookbook for many years, not only for its excellent recipes but also for the many narratives.
Once again, the Council has issued a winner. The recipes I've tried out of this new book have worked as well as their original cookbook. Actually, I didn't notice that these recipes are supposed to be 'healthier' until I began to write this review!
I've particularly enjoyed the black-eyed pea soup, the mustard greens and potato soup, and the collard greens and turkey wings. The pound cake recipe is standard, but the pear upside-down cake is terrific. The banana oatmeal cookies will be a hit for you. The chicken broccoli casserole is yummy!
I could go on, but I'll just say that every recipe I've tried has worked well. This is good home-style cooking, nothing too fancy, and the recipes are well written.
However, it's the stories and parables running through the book that make it special. I've always been a fan of Ms. Bethune, and the narratives here about her are particularly enjoyable.
This book is not only excellent, but it's also an excellent buy!

I'm not a huge fan of soul food, but really like this cookbook nevertheless. The recipes were submitted by members of the council and are terrific. Importantly, the authors made efforts to cut out much of the fat from the recipes and did a great job.
I also really enjoy the stories that are interspersed throughout the book. A number of prominent African-Americans share their memories of Dorothy Height and recount times that they shared a meal with her. One word of caution - the recipe for Hoppin' John calls for 2 pounds of brown rice...I think this is a typo and perhaps should read 2 cups. I ended up with a HUGE vat of rice with a few black eye peas. Otherwise, a very fine collection!

I bought this book because I am an avid quilter. I wanted to see what quilts had to do with cooking. The book turned out to be so many things that delight me. I enjoyed the stories about famous African Americans. The recipes are great because, with the low calorie ingredients, you can have soul food without guilt. The quilts are displayed with a bit of quilt history and a glimpse into the soul of the quilter. I reach for this book again and again.

You can buy this book with confidence. You won't be disappointed. Unlike other cookbooks that entice you with 5 star reviews, only to be disappointed with 1 star results, this book delivers. So...sit back, relax and have a gastronomically good time.
