Again, I want - I NEED - to be a SPQ. Following these recipes and financial tips, I hope to someday achieve my goal. Truly funny; wonderful FATTENING recipes (and I do plan to try a number of them); and the financial tips are just no brainers! We can all learn from this group!

Helpful Score: 2
I have this cookbook and love it! The Sweet Potato Queens are hilarious and the author (Jill Conner Browne) includes much of that same kind of humor all through the book ("You know, some people like to say 'Less is more' but we are just the kind of girls who believe more is more - and also better"). I have made several of the recipes and they have all become family favorites. The one we like most is "Death Chicken" made from simple ingredients (rice, soup, chicken, bacon) but tastes -incredibly- good. And Fried Dill Pickles...the recipe is two pages long and so funny, my ribs hurt from laughing. Then there is Hershey Bar Pie...OMG.
Hilarious! I haven't tried any of the recipes but the book keeps you laughing through out. I enjoyed it almost as much as her 1st book. If you liked the first Sweet Potato book you should definitely read this one.
I love this book. Every recipe I've made from it has been delicious and people are always asking for the recipe. The crowd pleasers have been Sallie Mae Sweet and Salties and Linda's Killer Cake with No Apples. A family favorite is That Pumpkin Stuff that Dorothy Makes.
