It was the day after I accepted the "new gig" and I was kind of already flying high on excitement (and fear!) and when I opened the email from "Morgan" that read, "Ree Drummond would like to send you an advance copy of her 'A Year of Holidays Cookbook'"...well, I got a little giddy, it was like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae!
Only I don't like cherries on sundaes. But, you get the idea, right? :)
So, last Saturday, when one of my kiddos came running in from outside with a package that looked suspiciously like a book, I tore it open and sure enough...this was inside:
I quickly thumbed through it, and guys? I love Ree's style of cookbook writing. (No, I haven't been paid, or encouraged, or even asked to say anything at all about the cookbook...just doing so 'cuz I like what I see!) She intersperses her recipes with stories of her family and I may or may not have teared up at the Mother's Day introduction.
You can't make me tell. *sniffle* *tear*
Gah. I'm such a sap...talk about moms and grandmas and I turn into a puddle.
And the recipes...coffee granita? Yorkshire pudding? Prime Rib? Pecan Pie?
Can you hear my tummy growling?
Dear Pioneer Woman,
Will you adopt me?
All my love,
Hungry in Minnesota
(Oh, and I just looked it up...the cookbook will be released on October 29th! Less than a week away!)
