The Southern Pantry
A well-stocked kitchen always makes for better meals, satisfied families, and-most important-happy cooks. But filling cupboards and stocking shelves with the right ingredients can be an endeavor all its own. That's why Jennifer Chandler's The Southern Pantry Cookbook (Thomas Nelson, $24.99, October 2014) is the perfect resource for setting up an efficient kitchen, primed for turning out meals with maximum flavor in a minimal amount of time.
Calling on her experience as a chef and lifelong Southern cook, Chandler incorporates comprehensive pantry checklists with simple instructions, shortcut ideas, and fun substitutions that will have you cooking with confidence and serving delicious meals your family will request again and again. Along the way, Chandler answers those questions every cook encounters at some point: Can I freeze this? I'm out of buttermilk-what can I substitute? When do I need to replace those dried herbs I've had for a while? So get that pantry stocked and prepare for rave reviews.

Memphis chef Jennifer Chandler has assembled everything a grilling amateur could possibly need to achieve pitmaster-caliber results any night of the week. Whether you're cooking with gas, charcoal, or cast iron, Simply Grilling (Thomas Nelson, $24.99, April 2012) will eliminate the uncertainty and have you manning the flames with confidence.
