Johnnie Gabriel, cousin of beloved cook Paula Deen, serves up another generous helping of Southern recipes from her award-winning Atlanta restaurant and bakery, Gabriel's.
In 1989, Johnnie Gabriel started baking cakes to pay her daughter's tuition. Soon she became known as Marietta's "cake lady," and, along with husband, Ed, made the decision to go into the baking business full time. What started as a small storefront bakery quickly became a local favorite. Customers began asking for weeknight meals for their families and Gabriel's Desserts quickly became more than just a bakery.
In this follow-up to "Cooking in the South," Gabriel serves up "Second Helpings" of more than 150 delectable Southern recipes, including:
- Crown Pork Roast with Maple and Cranberry Rice
- Tomato and Mozzarella Pie
- Pecan Tassies
- Sweet Potato Bread Pudding
- Cornbread Salad
