If you know me, or followed me previously on my blog Only from Scratch, then you know that cooking is one of my favorite hobbies. It helps that I have a husband who enjoys eating and allows me to be creative in the kitchen.
Over the past six years or so, I’ve discovered that I absolutely love Southern cuisine. Even though I grew up in Virginia, my parents were both from the North, so foods like grits, fried chicken, pimento cheese, Creole, and even sweet tea, weren’t generally found on our table. My husband’s family, and most of his friends, are from South Carolina. Trips to Charleston, living in Georgia for a few years, and now our little stint in Pensacola, have exposed me to the wonder that is true Southern food. I’m hooked.
A few months ago I was sent a new cookbook to review, The Southern Living Community Cookbook, and I have to tell you that this cookbook is incredible. I’ve made many of the recipes and each one has been a hit. Some of our favorites:
Lexington Grilled Chicken, Cream Cheese Banana Bread, Sweet Potato Biscuits, Grits & Grillades (a New Orleans dish), Sausage and Pinto Bean Dip. There hasn’t been one that we didn’t like!
Today, I’m giving away a copy of this cookbook to one of you! Whether or not you’re a lover of Southern food, this cookbook is sure to hold many recipes that you will love. Most are fairly simple, with a few being the type that can challenge you in the kitchen.
This little blog of mine is what you would call a ‘lifestyle blog’, which basically means I will be writing about our life. I cook, we eat, and so from time to time you’ll find our favorite recipes posted here. (Trust me, I’ll only share the ones that we would make again–I don’t want to waste anyone’s time with a so-so recipe just because I want to have another blog post!)
Simply use the Rafflecopter form below to enter for a chance to win a copy of one of my favorite cookbooks!
