About the Book
The everyday dinner is a love story. Butter and Pecans is the story of four women, their recipes, and their love for each other and their families. Using essays, recipes, and food memories, author Whitney Archer illustrates her ancestors’ care and cooking in this little memoir. This is their love, their passion. This is their food.
