FROM A SOUTHERN OVEN: THE SAVORIES, THE SWEETS by Jean Anderson (Wiley, $32.50)

Anderson, one of the country's most respected cookbook authors, focuses her talents on her Southern roots (she's a die-hard Tarheel) in this appealing, trend-free volume. Anything baked (from chicken casseroles to towering cakes) is fair game. With lots of photos, cooking tips and historical notes.

From the scores of cookbooks published in 2012, here are eight guaranteed to whet the appetite. --ERICA MARCUS / erica.marcus@newsday.com
