Fortunately, I found a few food related books like the Southern Living Off the Eaten Path. I had been looking at this one online and found it at the Alabama Booksmith signed by the author. Having first edition books signed by the author and having a whole room dedicated to authors with southern voices is the niche that Alabama Booksmith has found – and it works!
After a visit one day, SS and I went back a few days later for a special author remembrance and signing by some friends of hers. During that visit, I found A Homemade Life by the author of the Orangette blog page – one of the first one’s I discovered when starting Holly’s Diner.
