About this item

A collection of classic Southern comfort food recipes--including seven-layer dip, chicken and gravy, and strawberry shortcake--made lighter, healthier, and completely guilt-free.  Virginia Willis is not only an authority on Southern cooking, a French-trained chef, and a veteran cookbook author she is also a proud Southerner who adores eating and cooking for family and friends. So when she needed to drop a few pounds and generally lighten up her diet, the most important criterion for her new lifestyle was that all the food had to taste delicious.The result is Lighten Up, Yall, a soul-satisfying and deeply personal collection of Virginias new favorite recipes. All the classics are covered—from a comforting Southern Style Shepherds Pie with Grits to warm, melting Broccoli Mac and Cheese to Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pie.
