BELOW ARE RECIPE NOTES FROM A FEW FAMILY RECIPES
Deb’s Deep Dish Chocolate Pie (from soul food cookbook)
Recipe Note: This pie is my sister's signature dessert and is simply to die for! If you love chocolate, you're gonna love this pie. Make it and you'll "taste" why. Deb's Tip: For best results, make sure the eggs and butter are room temperature.
Emerson’s Fried Corn
Recipe Note: My stepfather Emerson used to make fried corn quite often. I remember he would pull up a stool to the stove as he prepared this dish. We couldn't wait for Emerson's fried corn. It was certainly a real treat for the entire family.
Big Mama’s Butter Roll (from soul food cookbook)
Recipe Note: A very old recipe Big Mama used to make when I was a young girl. Everyone raved about her homemade butter roll.
Apple Pie with Crumb Topping
Recipe Note: I remember my mother making this pie and letting it cool in the window seal. The aroma of cinnamon and brown sugar filled the house making it very hard to wait until it cooled down.
Country Banana Pudding (from soul food cookbook)
Recipe Note: This was my mother's original recipe from her personal collection. The custard for this pudding is outstanding and is best with pure vanilla extract. Great for any occasion.
Book Reviews and Comments
Soul Food Lovers’ Cookbook
“Cassandra’s recipe in her cookbook did not fail to meet expectations and tasted just how I remembered. Those who like straightforward recipes, you will not be disappointed here. If you are looking for a small southern cookbook with recipes familiar to the Cajun and Creole style of cooking then this is the book for you.”
From: Amy R. Kendall
BellaOnline Southern Cooking Editor
“You either like Banana Pudding or hate it, but the Harrell’s cookbook would sway anyone’s nay vote. It was delicious. But let’s move from the desserts category to the Main Dish section: The Gumbo Chicken Wings were very good and so were the Smothered Pork Chops. Don’t get me started on the Breads & Rolls section.
In the beginning of the book there is a “Brief History of Soul Food” page and although interesting, the picture on the cover is truly what prompted me to accept this review as well as prepare a few recipes for my family who really enjoyed them. I own and have read other soul food cookbooks - Soul Food Lover’s Cookbook is at the top of the list.”

“I just want to let you know that I made the Sweet Potato Pie from your cookbook and it was DELICIOUS!!!!! I thought my husband would hurt himself. Also, I had my 13 year old daughter make three Pecan Pies and they were so good. We also made the Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and Big Mama’s Pound Cake (I make this often). Everything was so good and I got so many compliments. Thanks for sharing your recipes.“
Tanita from Little Rock, Arkansas
“Thanks for your great recipes I am an inexperience cook and just wanted to feed my family but didn’t have your recipes to do so. I want my family to be close to their roots by providing them good soul food cooking thank you once again!”

FEATURED RECIPES FROM COOKBOOK
SOUTHERN PECAN PIE
Excerpt from Soul Food Lovers’ Cookbook
Copyright 2007, by Cassandra Harrell
½ cup Karo syrup, dark
1 cup white sugar
¼ cup butter, melted
3 eggs, room temperature
1 cup pecan halves
1 (9 inch) pie crust, unbaked
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir together syrup, sugar and butter. Mix well, add eggs, and pecan halves. Mix well. Pour into pie crust and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool before cutting.
Recipe Note: When I was a teenager, this was the first pie I ever made. It’s a great recipe, not too sweet, and a real winner on taste. I still make this pie today. An old family favorite that has been in my family for over 50 years.
HOT WATER CORN BREAD (from soul food cookbook)
Excerpt from Soul Food Lovers’ Cookbook
Copyright 2007, by Cassandra Harrell
2 cups self-rising white or yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon sugar, (optional)
1 1/2 cups hot water
Combine cornmeal, flour, egg, sugar and hot water in large bowl. Heat vegetable oil in skillet until hot. Place about 1 heaping tablespoon of cornmeal mixture for each bread patty in skillet.
Fry in hot oil over medium heat until light brown on both sides, about 3 to 5 minutes. Cool patties on paper towels. Yield: 8 to 10 bread patties
Recipe Note: Family Treasure Recipe: My grandmother taught me how to make this bread. Make sure the water is hot and not lukewarm--its makes better bread. If this is your first time making this recipe, use fresh vegetable oil.
