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.

Hmm, there are so many to choose from!!! Sweet Potato Pie, final answer!
I'm originally from Virginia, and I believe my favorite "southern" food is biscuits and gravy. NOM.

That's a hard one... but I think I'm going to say banana pudding! We're currently stationed in San Diego (hubby is in the Navy), and I love it here... but I sure do miss Southern food!! :)

Give me a church meal, baby! All the yummy casseroles you never have time to make, followed by a dessert table groaning under the weight of all the stuff on it!

my favorite southern dish would definitely have to be really good, buttery, slightly salty cornbread. none of that sweet nonsense northerners like to eat. :)

Cheesy grits or pulled pork

Definitely a good deviled egg with sweet pickle relish and no paprika. Yum.

I don't know much about Southern food (yet!) but I do know I love cornbread and fried chicken!!!!

my favorite southern dish... gosh, it's hard! i'd have to say collard greens with bacon. i served in the americorps nccc for a year and was based in charleston, s.c. we traveled all throughout the southeastern united states, and i fell in love with collard greens forever. i can't figure out how to make them in quite the same way... creamy (but without cream), slightly bitter and slightly salty.... hmmm. i'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Grits--with salt, pepper, and pools of butter for breakfast. Grits pie for dessert.

10-layer cake...particularly if there is coconut involved!
October 8 | Unregistered Commentermegbmd
I'm originally from the South, so my favorite meal has to be fried chicken with okra and a big slice of homemade lemon meringue pie for dessert!
