They're called colloquialisms, idioms, of just good old fashioned, home-grown country sayings steeped in humor and home-spun common sense. These parlances might not fit the modern hoity toity rhetoric you're used to seeing in print or hearing on TV, and that's exactly why they're more refreshing than an ice cube in July. In Butter My Butt and Call Me a Biscuit, Author Allan Zullo offers up more than 200 vernacular verses presented in themes, such as: * Admitting You're Wrong--The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm, 'cause the colder it gets the harder it is to swallow. * Congress--Gettin' a politician to do somethin' good for our country is like tryin' to poke a cat out from under the porch with a rope. * Ego--Some people are so full of themselves, you'd like to buy 'em for what they're worth and sell 'em for what they think they're worth. * Teenage Boys--You kinda wish they used their heads for somethin' besides hat racks. * Revenge--Two wrongs don't make a right, but they sure do make it even. * Surprises--Sometimes you get so surprised by life there ain't nothin' else to say but, 'Butter my butt and call me a biscuit.'"

This cookbook has 6 generations of good ole southern family recipes as well as some fun ones. There are around 600 recipes in this book. You will find anything from purple hull peas to jalapeno cornbread, chocolate pie to frog legs, Dutch oven recipes to gifts in a jar, roadkill to potato soup. There is such a wide variety, you've got a lot recipes to choose from. I wrote this cookbook to share with others the delicious foods we grew up on and have passed on to our children. These recipes bring back childhood memories when our families would get together and have home cooked meals. Now a days, people don't want to cook from scratch because it is so much easier to just go out and get fast food. I miss the days of home cooked meals. I hope these meals put a smile on your face, bring back some childhood memories, and will allow your families to spend some quality time together. Enjoy!!!
