‘Still Cookin’ Southern Comfort Featuring Crock-Pot Favorites’

‘Still Cookin’ Southern Comfort Featuring Crock-Pot Favorites’

There are no fancy food photos, flashy layouts or fussy preparations in Madison resident Linda Stone McCollum’s latest cookbook, just 223 pages packed with easy, satisfying Southern comfort food.

McCollum’s love of cooking is rooted in her Mississippi childhood. Through the years she has collected cookbooks and recipes from family and friends. Her retirement bucket list included writing her own cookbook, although she didn’t wait for retirement to do it. She published “Southern Comfort” in 2013; “More Southern Comfort” followed in 2015. Friends kept asking for more slow cooker recipes, so more recently McCollum released “Still Cookin’ Southern Comfort Featuring Crock-Pot Favorites.”

Readers will find a vast range of recipes suitable for snacking, entertaining and family mealtime. Most are simple enough for beginning cooks, and many use time-saving convenience foods. Some 50 pages are devoted to slow cooker recipes.

“Southern Comfort” cookbooks are sold at the Mississippi Craft Center, in Ridgeland. For mail orders, contact Linda McCollum at
