Reese Witherspoon invites you into her world, where she shares how southern hospitality and a love of good food, drink, and dipping toes into all that life has to offer have led her to create the kind of lifestyle most women only dream about. In Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love & Pretty Things—replete with stories both hilarious and poignant—Reese divulges Southern secrets for living like a lady (the importance of curves; never being too busy; getting your workout by going on long walks with friends) even as she breaks down traditional barriers. With recipes for delectable dishes from Reese’s family tree such as Drunken Deviled Eggs plus new takes on old favorites (like Spicy Tomato Soup), this spirited guide shows readers how being feminine and formidable can go hand-in-hand. There is nothing I like better than diving into a book by Reese Witherspoon.
