Dearest Readers,

Over the last month or so, her ladyship, the editor, has been on a mission to clean out her pantry: using up ingredients that are approaching their expiration date (also loosely known as the "I've had this a year and I haven't opened it yet" rule).  This has involved some rather creative cooking solutions.  Her ladyship is not sure how, for example, she ended up with two pounds of bitter sweet chocolate chips but her neighbors are reaping the benefits in muffins, cookies, and various versions of brownies and quick breads.

There is something comforting about a full pantry, is there not? It's like always having a book you wish to read close by. If a library is a promise of food for the mind and soul, A pantry is a promise of food for the body. Each brings it's own sense of contentment and well-being.

The dilemma of what to do with several pounds of chocolate chips was put into perspective the other day when her ladyship caught a piece on NPR on Civil War cookbooks, and what they implied about life during wartime:

Over the four-year course of the war, the cotton-and-tobacco-growing South was steadily starved into submission by the Union's naval blockade of the Atlantic Coast and the Mississippi River, which cut off vital supplies of grain, pork and, most lethally, salt. Meanwhile, ports in the North remained open to trade with Europe. While parts of the South came close to famine, the North continued to dine well and even exported surplus food. All this was reflected in the food literature of the time.

Apparently, only a single cookbook was published in the South during the War: The Confederate Receipt Book, It is a study in deprivation:

APPLE PIE WITHOUT APPLES.--

To one small bowl of crackers, that have been soaked until no hard parts remain, add one teaspoonful of tartaric acid, sweeten to your taste, add some butter, and a very little nutmeg.

Her ladyship, the editor, is not quite equal to the task of attempting a pie made out of saltine crackers. She has, however, redoubled her efforts to make use of everything in her (she realizes) ridiculously overstocked pantry. There will be many chocolate things in the future for her neighbors.

Read independently! And shop local.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


Noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.

The Confederate CookbookHere's an apple pie recipe from a not-so-austere Confederate cookbook:

Fried Apple Pies
A favorite of the McDaniel-Curtis Camp #165 in Carrollton, Georgia

1 cup dried apples
2 tablespoons sugar
1 (10-count) can refrigerated butter-flavor biscuits
3 cups of water
Peanut oil

Cook the dried apples in water until thick and not runny. Use medium temperature and stir to prevent burning. Stir until smooth, then add sugar. Open can of biscuits and roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle. Place 1 tablespoon of apple mixture in the center, moisten 1/4-inch edge of circle with water, fold in half, and crimp edges with fork. Heat 1-inch deep peanut oil in a skillet, drop individual pies into hot oil, and fry until golden on the bottom. Turn to brown other side. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to absorb excess fat.

Book & Author Gossip

Lighten up, y'allThe F word

Virginia Willis’ new cookbook opens with the bravest sentences I’ve seen anyone write about Southern food: “I’m going to start things out talking about the F-word. No, not that F-word . . . I’m talking about the word ‘fat.’”  Then Willis – Southern-reared and French-trained, usually elegantly dressed with coiffed hair and bold lipstick – goes on to admit her own struggles. 9781607745730

A NOLA Reading List

I spend a portion of each month finding, reading and writing about new books by New Orleans and other Louisiana authors or books about or set in the city or state. Having already read each of the books for work, they are already checked off of my list, but I thought I’d cull a few picks from the past few months to share with you in one handy spot.

June is Tin House Month at QRB

The WildsFounded in 1998 by Win McCormack, Tin House magazine is a quarterly journal that has featured writing by the likes of Sherman Alexie, Charles Baxter, Rick Moody, and David Foster Wallace. The book imprint, Tin House Books, was started in 2005 after the staff realized how many writers’ careers were launched after being featured in the “New Voices” section of the magazine.  They publish about a dozen books (mostly paperback originals) each year. 9781935639923

Harper Lee's Letters to be auctioned

Go Set a WatchmanThis interest in Lee—who is eighty-nine and reportedly compromised by various ailments, and who resides in an assisted-living facility near Monroeville, Alabama, her home town—no doubt also accounts for the forthcoming appearance, at Christie’s, of a handful of her personal letters, which will be auctioned on June 12th. The letters were written to the late Harold G. Caufield, an architect in New York, and to their circle of friends, which included her early patrons Michael and Joy Brown. (As a Christmas gift in 1956, the couple pledged to fund Lee for a year so that she could work on her fiction.) 9780062409850

Interview with Sean Brock

HeritageI grew up in the Appalachian Mountains, and that accent is thick. When I moved to Charleston to go to culinary school, I was the hillbilly. I was totally made fun of, and I lost the accent. You want to work; you don't want to be harassed. It's the same journey with cooking. You do everything you can to get away from home. You hit your 30s, and you do everything you can to get back to that. That's exactly what I'm doing. My main focus is studying Appalachian hillbilly culture and cuisine. If I am researching something, it's Appalachian hillbilly culture. That's what I want to spend the next 10 years doing. 9781579654634

Rare copy of Harper Lee novel stolen

The owner of Blue Bicycle Books is looking for a rare signed copy of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird that recently went missing from the store. Blue Bicycle owner Jonathan Sanchez told police the book was probably stolen between May 12 and May 19. The book was displayed on a shelf in front of the cash register and is valued at $1,750.

Boogers with super powers

Billy's BoogerBilly was a fourth grader, and his class was having a book-making contest. Billy was sort of a weird kid but he had an active brain and a lot of (weird) ideas and he thought a book might be just the place for them.  So he wrote a book. It was about a booger. A booger dislodged from Billy's nose by a meteor sneezed out by a sneezing star that conked his head and made him sneeze out, well, a little green nose buddy. Oh, and the booger has super powers and super math skills. 9781442473515

Civil War Cookbooks

The only Southern cookbook of the war years was The Confederate Receipt Book. Published in 1863, it had a revealing subtitle: "A Compilation of over one hundred receipts adapted to the times." And those were the worst of times, most miserably manifested in a recipe for Apple Pie without Apples: "To one small bowl of crackers that have been soaked until no hard parts remain, add one teaspoonful of tartaric acid, sweeten to your taste, add some butter, and a very little nutmeg."

Lady Banks {Book} Trailer Park

Bull Mountain

"Brian Panowich stamps words on the page as if they ve been blasted from the barrel of a shotgun, and as with a shotgun blast, no one is safe from the scattered fragments of history that impale the people of Bull Mountain."

--Wiley Cash, New York Times-bestselling author of This Dark Road to Mercy

Bull Mountain"From a remarkable new voice in Southern fiction, a multigenerational saga of crime, family, and vengeance. Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made its home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, running shine, pot, and meth over six state lines, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family's criminal empire, Clayton took the job of sheriff in a neighboring community to keep what peace he can. But when a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms shows up at Clayton's office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and could lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction. In a sweeping narrative spanning decades and told from alternating points of view, the novel brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of the mountain and its inhabitants: forbidding, loyal, gritty, and ruthless. A story of family the lengths men will go to protect it, honor it, or in some cases destroy it "Bull Mountain" is an incredibly assured debut that heralds a major new talent in fiction.

Meet C. Hope Clark

C Hope ClarkC. Hope Clark is author of The Carolina Slade Mystery Series, to include Lowcountry Bribe, Tidewater Murder, and Palmetto Poison, published through Bell Bridge Books out of Memphis, TN. Her second series, The Edisto Island Mysteries, is well represented by Murder on Edisto and the upcoming Edisto Jinx to be released Fall 2015. The third Edisto release is contracted for summer 2016.

The granddaughter of a Mississippi cotton farmer, Hope holds a B.S. in Agriculture with honors from Clemson University and 25 years’ experience with the U. S. Department of Agriculture, all of which enable her to talk the talk of Carolina Slade, the protagonist in her first series. Her love of writing, however, carried her up the ranks to the ability to retire young, and she left USDA to pen her stories and freelance. Lowcountry Bribe's opening chapter took first place in the Phillip Mangelsdorf Award, third place in 2009 Alabama Writer's Conclave Competition and honorable mention in The Writing Show Chapter Competition 2009 as judged by bestselling mystery author C. J. Box. The chapter also made finalist status of the 2009 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense sponsored by Romance Writers of America.

From the Okra Picks

Evidence Room
by Cameron Harvey

Evidence RoomThis atmospheric and beautifully written police procedural is set in Florida where a murder of a young mother shook a small bayou town to its core. Twenty years later, the victim's daughter returns to the scene of the crime and learns that the tragedy of her past has very real consequences for her future.

Everyone in Cooper's Bayou knows the story of Raylene Atchison, the local woman who was murdered on the banks of the bayou, and her daughter, Aurora, who was found on the steps of the mini-mart, alone. But when Aurora, who was raised far away from Cooper's Bayou, returns to Florida to settle her grandfather's estate, she learns that the suspect in her mother's murder was wrongly accused. Aurora meets Josh Hudson, a cop who has been put on administrative leave at the Evidence Room, a warehouse of dusty and forgotten items that could hold the key for solving Raylene's murder. Together, Josh and Aurora delve into the past and find that that the answers they are seeking lie just below the surface of the bayou they thought they knew.

Spanning decades of secrets and lies and featuring a setting that comes alive as a character in its own right, Cameron Harvey's THE EVIDENCE ROOM is a stunning debut mystery from a new literary talent.

The Star Side of Bird HillThe Star Side of Bird Hill: A Novel, by Naomi Jackson
(Penguin Press, 9781594205958, $25.95)

“In the summer of 1989, sisters Dionne and Phaedra — aged 16 and 10, respectively — are shuttled from their Brooklyn life to their grandmother Hyacinth’s home in Barbados. Dionne is filled with palpable teenage angst and the desire for romance, while Phaedra prefers to experience the mysteries of Bird Hill with her grandmother. Both girls have a tentative curiosity about their mother’s early life on the island, but it is not until their father shows up unexpectedly that they question their very identities and what it means to be ‘home.’ Reminiscent of Jamaica Kincaid, Jackson’s coming-of-age tale makes Barbados spring from the page with humor, beauty, and heartbreak.” —Amanda Hurley, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL

Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship, by Robert Kurson
(Random House, 9781400063369, $28)

Pirate Hunters“Kurson, the author of Shadow Divers, follows a team of treasure hunters on their quest for the ultimate bounty of the oceans — a sunken pirate ship from the Golden Age of Piracy — as they race against the clock of international legislation and rival hunters. It quickly becomes clear that these are men who share more than a little in common with the pirates for whom they search. Pirate Hunters reminds us that the daring and romance of piracy’s heroes was good cause to inspire centuries of boyhood daydreams, which are still alive and well today.” —Sara Hinckley, Hudson Booksellers, Marietta, GA

As Night Falls: A Novel, by Jenny Milchman
(Ballantine Books, 9780553394818, $26)

As Night Falls“If you want to experience a great psychological thriller, you must read As Night Falls. Sandy has tried to leave her past behind and start a new life, but it comes crashing in on her in a vicious way. Two convicts break into her house, and that is just the beginning of the terror as Sandy must try to face the past and save her family. I could not put this book down!” —Melissa Wade, Vero Beach Book Center, Vero Beach, FL
