Recipes like Banana Pudding Pie, Poppy Seed-Chicken Casserole, and BLT Potato Salad are presented alongside poignant essays that stir memories of family, friends, and the whimsies of childhood. Full of simple and satisfying dishes like Chicken Pot Pie and Pan-Fried Pork Chops, Southern Living Comfort Food is for young and old alike. Its food for the soul. Its a tribute to family traditions. I watch her do it every year. Mom leafs through files, shuffles through kitchen drawers, and finally emerges victorious with a handful of old, dog-eared recipes for the dishes our family always expects on the table every Thanksgiving and Christmas. This disorganization isn't a sign of an untidy housekeeper; like every good Southern cook, she's showing respect for family history. -Dana Adkins Campbell 1963-2003
