Lighten Up, Y'all
by Virginia Willis - A collection of classic Southern comfort food recipes. In this book, all the classics are covered - from a comforting Southern Style Shepherd’s Pie with Grits to warm, melting Broccoli Mac and Cheese to Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pie. Each dish is packed with real Southern flavor, but made with healthier, more wholesome ingredients and techniques. Wherever you are on your health and wellness journey, Lighten Up, Y’all has the recipes, tools, and inspiration you need to make the nourishing, down-home Southern food you love.
Virginia Willis has cooked with Julia Child, prepared lunch for President Clinton, and catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda. She is a classically trained chef, but hails from Georgia and learned to cook with her Southern grandmother. In her fifth cookbook, she celebrates the healthy and wholesome side of Southern fare by adapting and developing recipes to make them guilt-free but still satisfy the soul.
