I love the story of how this giveaway came about. Several weeks ago, in one of our Reese Witherspoon Walking Around round-ups, Reese was carrying a cookbook, and we all tried to figure out what it was. Well, it was THIS book!
One of you eagle-eyed readers IDed it, and then the book’s publicist emailed me to ask if we wanted to give it away, and obviously, I said yes, because I love a giveaway, and I know y’all love cookbooks (as do I). And it’s about time that we Americans start thinking about what we’re going to cook for Thanksgiving.
When Heather Earnhardt opened her tiny, magical café, The Wandering Goose, in Seattle, she infused a little Southern comfort into the heart of a city that’s skies are often gray. Her specialty is biscuits, slathered with butter and homemade jam, piled high with fried chicken and bread-and-butter pickles, or country ham and an over-easy egg. In Big Food Big Love, this “red-dirt girl” shares stories from her childhood in the South and 130 recipes that contain a satisfying mix of nostalgic and traditional Southern favorites. Served up with a side of Southern charm, this is genuinely good and unfussy food that’s meant to be eaten with family and friends.
