I have been dreaming of sharing the cover and details of the book with you for over a year, and I’m so excited for you to see it. I wrote the book alongside my mother (Phronsie Dial) who is the quintessential Southern hostess. Creating a cookbook full of Southern recipes and entertaining tips is truly a dream project us! 

This book is my largest to date with over 75 recipes perfectly suited for year-round entertaining with Southern charm. You’ll find entertaining tips and tablescape inspiration throughout the 200+ pages. Discover modern twists on classics and beloved heirloom recipes from my family’s favorite recipes. 

Nashville food photographer Kyle Dreier (who photographed two of my early books, Push-Up Pops and Frostings) photographed this book for me, and he is a magician behind the camera!

All of our team put our heart and soul into the pages of this book (blood, sweat and tears), and we couldn’t be more thrilled for you to see the cover and learn more about the book.
