Y'all Come Eat!

I love cookbooks. I especially love cookbooks by Paula Deen. Simply reading her recipes is almost as satisfying as cooking and tasting them.
Recently, I checked out a cookbook titled The Deen Bros.Take It Easy by Jamie Deen. It is chock full of down-home charm and plenty of photos of these two handsome, southern men. It was no surprise that the recipes were also tasty to look at. The cover claims it is a book of quick and affordable meals the whole family will love. I do believe they are right on target! I have tried a couple of the recipes. They were easy to fix, and my family loved them! The Deen brothers also include some lighter, healthier options to cook for your family. This is one cook book I will be using again and again. Try this yummy dessert for your family:
Ten-Minute Blackberry Cream Pie
- One 10-oz. pkg. fresh or frozen blackberries (thawed)
- 3 Tablespoons blackberry jam
- One 8-oz.tub Cool Whip
- One 9- inch Graham cracker piecrust
Place the blackberries in a bowl and mash with fork until broken up. Add the jam and mix until combined. Spoon the blackberry mixture into the crust. Top with Cool Whip and serve.
