Sunday Suppers-Simple, Delicious Menus for Family Gatherings

The publisher sent me this cookbook last week.  It’s a very nice hardback with color photos.  288 pages of some GREAT recipes.

I made these 2 over the weekend.  They blew us away!

Southern Living will help you revitalize the tradition of Sunday supper in this new book by award-winning author Cynthia Graubart.

Sunday supper doesn’t have a set time. It can be formal, or it can be casual. It can take place after a lazy Sunday afternoon spent at the lake, it can be the delicious conclusion to your day after church, or after a game of touch football in the back yard. The key to supper is that it brings family and friends together over food that has been prepared with care and many times from cherished family recipes.

Organized in five distinct chapters, Sunday Suppers is designed to help you create delicious meals without too much muss and fuss. More than 50 easy-to-make main dishes are perfectly paired with appetizers or salads, sides, drinks, and desserts. Some of the delicious meals you’ll find inside include Braised Short Ribs, served with Hot Bacon Potato Salad with Green Beans and finished with Mississippi Mud Cupcakes, or Fall Chicken Casserole with Fresh Herb Spoon Rolls, and Tart Cherry Crisp for dessert. You might want to try your hand at Tomato & Feta Shrimp, served alongside Herbs and Greens Salad, with Peach Melba Shortbread Bars for dessert.

With easy menu-planning ideas, cooking tricks, tips for stocking the pantry, and around-the-table inspiration for everything from decorating the table, you’ll have all of the tools you need to host a proper Sunday supper.

Cynthia Graubart is a James Beard Award-winning cookbook author. She also wrote the Sunday Suppers column in Southern Living magazine. She travels the South inspiring cooks through her appearances on radio and television and her popular cooking classes. She lives in Atlanta.
