Descriere

Academy award–winning actress, producer and entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon invites you into her world, where she infuses the southern style, parties and traditions she loves with contemporary flair and charm.

Reese Witherspoon’s grandmother Dorothea always said that a combination of beauty and strength made southern women 'whiskey in a teacup'. We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.

Reese’s southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken. It’s reflected in how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her kids - not to mention how she talks, dances and does her hair (in these pages, you will learn Reese’s fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). Reese loves sharing Dorothea’s most delicious recipes as well as her favourite southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honky-tonks.
 
It’s easy to bring a little bit of Reese’s world into your home, no matter where you live. After all, there’s a southern side to every place in the world, right?

  • We always say in the South that good manners are a kind of passport. If you have good manners, you can go everywhere and people are glad to have you around.

  • Pretty is as pretty does.” People aren’t pretty if they act ugly.

  • Everything is going to work out. You’ll see.

  • In fact, I always give the same thing: a cake plate. Always, always. Because you know what? Cake plates remind you of fun times and good things. No one is depressed when they see a cake plate. A cake is happiness. With frosting on top.

  • That said, if you are looking for a how-to, self-help bible . . . this ain’t it. I love a good party, but I don’t have a ton of free time, so when it comes to shortcuts and good-enough-ing, I have been there and store-bought that.

    I really do love this woman and every little thing she stands for. From great recipes to great well bred manners, I'm encouraged that many young woman and men will read this book and make sure they too know how to set a proper table and teach their kids also.

    I enjoyed it, but I guess I’m just not as into decorating and homemaking as people who love this book is. I enjoyed the stories and admire Witherspoon and the strong southern women in her life.
  • (3/5)
    Light version of growing up Southern with a smattering of recipes ....Reese is a true Southern Belle and proud of it.....
  • (3/5)
    Fun, light reading about Southern hospitality, but probably better as a physical book than an audiobook.
  • (5/5)
    You don’t need to have southern roots to enjoy this delightful book by Reese Witherspoon. In fact, it is enjoyable even if you don't especially like to cook. Included with the recipes are tidbits about growing up southern, what that means even after you grow up and leave the south, and advice passed down from older relatives. Many photographs are sprinkled throughout the book, both of Reese and her family. The audio version is read by the author and adds much to its southern charm.

    I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. ????? Whiskey In A Teacup by Reese Witherspoon. What a great insight into Reese's world! Everything from how to hot roll your hair to what to put on your dinner party table. An amazing book that will definitely be on my list for Christmas gifts for all the women in my family!
