Is it strange to say that I grew up with Jack Daniels? I mean not personally mind you, but “Jack” as he was affectionately called, was my fathers drink of choice. I always remember Jack being around. I was very intrigued about the prospect of a JD cookbook, so I was thrilled when Thomas Nelson sent me a copy to review.
Jack Daniel’s Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook by Lynne Tolley and Pat Mitchamore is filled with wonderful recipes for just about any occasion. It of course has a very nice selection of cocktails, which I may have to try for the up coming season. The Mrs. Butts’ Boiled Custard ( yup, it’s a cocktail…) sounds amazingly good! I really can’t wait to try the Sinfully Good Roast Pork… oh my, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! There are some unusual recipes in the book ( at least for a New Englander) such as Possum and Sweet ‘Taters. Many of the recipes are true southern fare, that just sound so decadent and delicious. I think I’m gonna have to add a bottle of “Jack” to the grocery list from now on!
