GIVEAWAY: Pioneer Woman's New Cookbook: "A Year of Holidays" - Buttered Side Up

GIVEAWAY: Pioneer Woman's New Cookbook: "A Year of Holidays"


Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"
I have been reading the Pioneer Woman's blog since before the dawn of time. Well, since I first started blogging, anyway. I love her quirky sense of humor and openness about her mistakes. I remember thoroughly enjoying reading her love story. And I learned a lot from her photography tutorials.

All of this to say, I am very honored to have received her latest cook book: A Year of Holidays. I now own all three of her cookbooks, and I must say that this one is my favorite. Let me share a bit of it with you:



Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"

Helen couldn't wait to get her little pea-pickin' hands on it. Hence her presence in the following photos. She threw a bit of fit when I took the book away to take pictures.



Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"
This cookbook has recipes for all your favorite holidays. I don't know about you, but I seriously need this lesson on how to roast a Thanksgiving turkey. I really like how Ree shows you not just how to prepare a single dish for a holiday, but how to make everything you'll need (mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, etc. etc.). It's kinda like a holiday feast bible.

But let's look at some more of the recipes...



Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"
Take a gander at this caramel apple pie.



Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"
These little cookie bars look extremely addicting.



Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"
I think Reuben would LOVE these Lemon Creme Pie Shooters.



Pioneer Woman's "A Year of Holidays"
Another thing I really like about this cookbook is that Ree has a do-ahead game plan. This will help you co-ordinate your feast-making to help it be less stressful.

And she even includes recipes for what to do with the (inevitable) leftovers.

  5. Oh I'd love to be in this one! :)
    I can't survive a Christmas without the Swedish "Jansson's Frestelse" ( The temptation of Jansson), it's like a potato gratin a´la Dauphinoise but instead of garlic you use anchovies -and before you wrinkle your nose.. they're swedish one's that have been marinated in delicious spices like cloves, all spice etc, I think Ikea carries it actually. Anyway, it's an amazing dish!
    Oh, and I've got an U.S address if I would be one of the lucky one's to win it ( I'll ask my aunt to bring it over with her the next time she come's to Sweden :)
    Have a lovely weekend!
