First-time author Peggy Cannon shares with readers her love for cooking and savory meals in her recipe compilation Peggy’s Carolina Recipes. Cannon has had a passion for cooking as far back as she can remember; she was earlier inspired by her mother who taught her the basics of cooking while she was still young. Now she peruses recipe books from celebrity chefs as well as watches their cooking shows. This fascination for good food and cooking has led the author to collect several recipes both from friends and herself, perfect them, and share them with any one else who may be interested in quick, simple, and easy-to-follow recipes for savory and satisfying dishes. The book Peggy’s Carolina Recipes contains several recipes that cover a wide range of dishes including cookies, cakes, pies, and main dishes including seafood and vegetable dishes.
