Sweet Giveaway: Win a Copy of Mitford Cookbook by Bestselling Author Jan Karon

Who doesn't love having a sweet new recipe book? 

While you mull that one over, let me introduce a totally sweet giveaway: one lucky reader will receive the gorgeously designed Jan Karon's Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader: Recipes from Mitford Cooks, Favorite Tales from Mitford Books. In case you're not familiar, Jan Karon is the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mitford Series (35 million copies in print). But even more importantly, this book is filled with over 150 delicious Southern recipes, including Esther Bolick’s delicious Orange Marmalade Cake, The Irish Lady Rhubarb Tart, and more! And, since we all love a good backstory, this four-color cookbook features Jan’s personal reminiscences, dozens of beloved scenes from the Mitford books, jokes, cooking tips, and a story never before published in the novels.

How do you put your name in the hat? It's easy. Simply answer in the comments below telling me what your favorite Southern dish is (either sweet OR savory, I am feeling generous!).

Details: The giveaway is open to US entrants only, please--the giveaway will close at Midnight next Friday, October 15.

Fried Chicken with a kick!

Cornbread-REAL cornbread made without sugar or flour the way my granny in Nashville made it. Heaven. Pour sorghum on top like grandpa loved to do for sweetness, if you like. (I'm feeling very nostalgic-my mother, their daughter, passed away on Memorial Day.) Nostalgia or no, it's unbelievably good stuff!!

pecan pie!

I think it has to be chicken and sausage jambalaya. I love Southern desserts, too, so I'd probably need a slice of red velvet cake to follow...

Most definitely shrimp and grits ... from Magnolias in Charleston. Yum! A little peach pie for dessert would be fine too.

OMG...Southern food...reminds me of my childhood in Arkansas!

I love grits. Any way you cook em. With shrimp, cheese, butter, sugar, anything.
October 7 | Unregistered CommenterLadywild
Fried Oysters, fresh off the coast of Charleston, with hush puppies and coleslaw. Yum...

Oh, and of course Pecan Pie and Red Velvet Cake (with cream cheese frosting!), for the sweets :)

grits, grits and grits! Yum!

Hushpuppies and anything that goes with them. I love the Mitford series, and Jan Karon's style.

Fresh sweet corn on the cob has always been my favorite. ;)

I love spoonbread, and a good hot gumbo with lotsa crab shrimp and okra,

sweet potato pudding mmmmhm! ;)
October 7 | Unregistered CommenterKelly
That’s a very hard question for me to answer since 1/2 my family is from Mississippi! But, I would have to say my (dearly departed) Grandma’s buttermilk biscuits with butter and honey and her banana pudding! Also, collard greens with REAL Southern cornbread! (Real Southern cornbread does not contain sugar or honey!)
