"Faith, Family, Friends, and Fried Chicken" is Sherry-Marie's big debut. Sherry was advised for years to write her story. Now, in a style of storytelling that Sherry laughingly describes as "Erma Bombeck meets Joel Osteen, and they have dinner together", comes her memoir, which circles around four instrumental influences in her existence: Faith, Family, Friends, and her loved for Southern comfort food.
Sherry shares her heartwarming story and sincere expression of American family life intertwined with her family's and friends' recipes. From biscuits with "chocolate gravy" to Banana Croquettes, to Kentucky Blackberry Jam Cake, Chocolate Lust, Sherry-Marie's Spaghetti Salad; Bethany's Chicken Enchiladas; Ammanda Faith's Flag Cake; Kick the Can Ice Cream Applesauce Meatballs, just to name a few of the old, Southern family recipes readers can indulge in from Sherry's Southern roots.
Found within the pages of the 2nd book of the "Faith, Family, Friends and Fried Chicken" trilogy Sherry continues the sweet, hilarious journey. Taking you from stealing watermelons growing in a creek to a prayer being unbelievably answered with almost and entire professional soccer team...all the while interweaving her deep faith, southern life lessons and laugh-out-loud humor. And don't forget the 40+ fabulous recipes, some of which are: Grandmother Burkhead's Fried Squirrel; Hominy Casserole; Jen's Sunday Pot Roast; Bacon & Cheese Spoon Bread; Mama's Fried Rolled Oysters; Jelly Pie; Racehorse Tarts; Country Ham & Raspberry Lemon Scones...

*Sherry-Marie, you are such an inspiration!! You have challenged me more than you will ever know. These past 5 years I have wondered where God was and if I could ever find hope & trust in Him again. I know I've missed so many opportunities to dance. I'm going to try to remember to find joy in this journey along with the pain...Bless You! S.A., Moore, OK
*I just read "Faith, Family, Friends and Fried Chicken". Although she tells of the disappointment, loss, heartbreak & tragedy she has endured throughout her life, the focus of the book is exactly what the title implies. Sherry's is not a story dwelling on sadness, but one of a woman who always finds strength through her trust in God, never takes her blessings for granted, loves every minute of every day & never loses her sense of humor "some days you are the bug and some days you are the windshield". I found it very inspirational & surely will be gaining a few pounds trying out her family recipes! Love you sooo much Sherry! L.D., Ennis, TX

*I've just finished the second book and loved it. Although it is different than the first, it is just as good. I found myself laughing and then sniffling. It was like sitting down to have a heart to heart heart talk with my best friend. During those talks, no matter what you bring to the table, there are hugs and support. EVERYONE should read this book! T.N., Beaverton, OR
