~ Phyllis Hoffman Fan ~

This is my current favorite book. Have you seen it yet? Not only does it contain gorgeous pictures of table settings, it has delicious recipes in it too. A couple of weeks ago I made the fried chicken that was soaked overnight in buttermilk. John is not a fan of chicken but he even loved it.
Phyllis Hoffman is the lady that brought back Victoria magazine last year. She also has introduced several new magazines that have become my favorites too. The picture above shows her holding a copy of Paula Deen's magazine that is such a treat to read. My other favorite is Southern Lady.

Most of you are probably familiar with Mrs. Hoffman's work but if you haven't read any of her magazines or books you might want to pick up a copy at the store. I'm a big fan of hers these days. Any other fans out there?
