Great cookbook Oct. 26 2010
By Mary Ann Jones - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is Johnny Gabriel's second book and I had to have it. I also have the first one, they are both beautifully done books, with delicious recipes. I had the pleasure of meeting the author at her restaurant. She is a lovely down to earth lady. I highly recommend both of her books.

Second Helpings is a wonderful follow-up to her first book, Cooking in the South. Her recipes are simple and classic, but there is one the caught my eye and my sweet tooth... Chocolate Italian Cream Cake!!!!! Divine!

Any seeking an exceptional Southern cookbook will want this! Jan. 20 2011
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
SECOND HELPINGS comes from a Marietta Georgia cook who has spent twenty years creating and developing classics of southern cooking. SECOND HELPINGS is the result, combining fine flavors and easy techniques. Shrimp in White Wine Cream Sauce, for example, pairs garlic, cream and butter in while Old-Fashioned Three Layer Peach Pie provides mouth-watering flavor. Any seeking an exceptional Southern cookbook will want this!
Heavy on desserts March 29 2013
By the hat lady - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this cookbook. The recipes are delicious and easy to follow. However, i would not really consider this a southern food cookbook. You will find these recipes served in the south, but you will find them else where. I consider them more mainstream. The book has beautiful pictures and gives you a little history of why the author chose each recipe. The book is very heavy on desserts, almost half the book. I wish they would have incorporated more main course meals.
