34523666Love Welcome Serve: Recipes that Gather and Give

LOVE WELCOME SERVE is a cookbook of Southern comfort food from Amy Nelson Hannon, the owner of Euna Mae's, a destination kitchen boutique in Northwest Arkansas.

Having been a preacher's wife in the South for more than twenty years, Amy Hannon's heart for hospitality was established, confirming her long-held belief that people who are cooked for feel cared for. Modeled after her grandmother, Euna Mae, Amy's big-hearted lifestyle has become noticed by a disconnected world that is drawn to her mission of using food to love, welcome, and serve those around her. Amy encourages people to open their homes and their hearts, connecting with folks over food; and she offers home cooks simple, crowd-pleasing, comfort recipes, meals that can be prepared for whatever the hospitality affair. Recipes like Brown Sugar Chili over Cheese Grits, Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas, and Sam's Pulled Pork are perfect belly-fillers for gathering people in your home. And recipes like Comfort Chicken Pot Pie, Hello Dolly Brownies, and Layered Spaghetti Pie are ideal for giving to folks when they just need to feel loved. Combined with her refreshing enthusiasm and approachable recipes, Amy Hannon has ignited a passion in young cooks who are spreading their hospitality wings, and she has reignited that same passion in seasoned cooks who had forgotten how much joy comes from serving others. Love Welcome Serve, Amy's first cookbook, will encourage you to embrace hospitality so you can enjoy the life that happens when you make and serve food for your people.

My Thoughts:
Love Welcome Serve is such a beautiful and warm cookbook. These are the kind of recipes that make you feel at home and loved.  With every page turned, you can feel Amy's love for cooking and her heart for good meals with family. If you're just starting out cooking, not to worry, Amy gives such amazing tips on how to get started or even if you're a seasoned pro, you'll still pick up some tips and trades along the way. If you want to learn new recipes with basic tools, you've come to the right place. Get ready for seven chapters of recipes with gorgeous photos and southern charm. From sweet tea, to roasted honey balsamic Brussels sprouts, or chocolate peanut butter dream pie, this book will make your stomach growl and your grocery bill sky rocket, but you'll love this cookie book. 
This is the perfect gift for the cook in your life for Christmas or maybe someone who is recently engaged for a Bridal shower. The simple recipes and tips in this cookbook are amazing.  I love the Southern Hospitality and charm, especially being a northerner. This book is simply beautiful, yet simple Thank you to the publisher for a copy. A favorable review was not required. I give this book 5/5 stars and highly recommend you put this on your Wish List!
