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:

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.

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…

Take a gander at this caramel apple pie.

These little cookie bars look extremely addicting.

I think Reuben would LOVE these Lemon Creme Pie Shooters.

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.

All of it! Can I say all of it? It's just that we live so very far away from family right now. The thought of walking into my mother in law's house with all of the holiday smells is bringing tears to my eyes. All of it, as long as it's shared with loved ones!
