Starting Fresh

This is our newest WhistleStop cookbook~ Starting Fresh.
It is full of great updated recipes... some old favorites, some new and fresh. When I wrote it, I had in mind new cooks- or a seasoned cook who is short on time but ready for some fresh ideas. I have included words of advice from friends all over the country.
When you order be sure to mention you are a blogging friend~ I'll be happy to sign a copy!

The Original WhistleStop CookBook

This is Mom's Cookbook. It is full of recipes from the Original WhistleStop Cafe. It also includes some history and pictures of the early cafe. There are cooking tips and hints for good Southern cooking.
It is not only a good cookbook... but a fun read!

Just a Pinch

We have decided to create a Country Store to make it easier for blogger friends to get their hands on WhistleStop Products. We have a great website that has some history about the cafe, recipes, and wholesale pricing.

This little country store is not meant to replace that website. In addition to batter mixes & spices, we have cookbooks, aprons, and gift items. This store will just be 'A pinch of this and a pinch of that'.

We will be able to offer gift packages for the holidays, some special items and hopefully get some feedback on new products. We hope to be able to offer unique items from time to time.

All items will be shipped UPS from our warehouse in Irondale. We realize that shipping to residential is more expensive and will be happy to ship to a business if you'd like. Email me at with your lists!
