You wouldn't know it by looking at her, but Faith Ford loves to eat. In fact, the beautiful and talented actress who played Corky Sherwood on "Murphy Brown" for ten years is also a passionate, expert home cook. Growing up in Pineville, Louisiana, she learned the great Southern classics from her mother and grandmother - Smothered Chicken, Smoky Beef Brisket, Catfish Po'Boy, Buttermilk Biscuits, Creamy Cheese Grits, Fluffy Lemon Ice Box Pie, and Chocolate Sheet Cake with Fudge Icing. As a young model and actress living in New York and Los Angeles, Faith learned to modify her favorite dishes from home into more healthful, calorie-conscious fare: Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken, Dilled Egg White Salad, Roasted Five Vegetable Soup with Turkey Meatballs, Sauteed Green Beans with Fresh Herbs, Faith's Lighter Cheese Grits Frittata, Cranberry Orange Slush, and Faith's Peach and Pecan Crumble.Cooking with Faith has the best of both of Faith's worlds - a combination of the homespun, heirloom recipes Faith grew up with and the lighter, healthier, more modern versions and creations. This is food to live with day to day and this is food to celebrate with or just indulge a longing for comfort and home. In addition to the 120 recipes, there will be delightful anecdotes of growing up on a small family farm in the American South as well as 8 pages of full color photography and 20 black and white photographs throughout.
