Has pretty much my favorite gumbo recipe ever. There are some recipes I don't use, because they're focused on feeding little kids (something I don't do often) and feature Velveeta, but that's, like, less than five percent of the book. Everything else knocks it out of the park and has assured my welcome invitation to brunches and potlucks for years to come. Nom nom cream cheese-stuffed blueberry french toast nom fried bread nom bok choy salad nommity nom basic guidelines for Epic Vegetable Soup nom.
Plus, how can you not love the in-depth treatise on mashed potatoes?
