It is, as the title suggests, a mouth-watering, evocative, and charmingly conversational discussion of cooking at Cross Creek.

Everyone who read CROSS CREEK was tantalized by the delectable hints of Mrs. Rawlings culinary charm. She received countless letters- from housewives, from men in the services, asking for recipes, sending her recipes, or simply expressing their delight in her talk of food. Thus it came about that Mrs. Rawlings was encouraged to enlarge upon this aspect of her Cross Creek life.

She has bound together her recipes by delightful little vignettes in the true Rawlings style. Grandma Traphagens Sugar Cookies bring a nostalgic memory of the old time cooky jar in the farmhouse kitchen. The recipes for fish and sea foods are prefaced by an amusing tale of a nocturnal hunt for flounders which later, after they had been eaten by Mrs. Rawlings and her maid, were discovered to be electric rays! The simple and homely collard greens recall the elegant servant Kellogg, who had a taste for Cosmology - and found that life at Cross Creek was not all dinner parties and Mallard duck.

It often includes hunting for such foods as turtle eggs, to the obvious suspicion of the Yankee soldier on beach patrol. Grits and deadly pecan pie, syllabub, and sweet potato pone, they are all here, but so are steak and kidney pie, and floating island. Mrs. Rawlings has a fondness for all types of food best expressed in her own words - Food imaginatively and lovingly prepared, and eaten in good company, warms the being with something more than mere intake of calories.
