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.

I have wanted to know the recipe for that Orange Marmalade cake ever since I started listening to the Mitford series years ago! My favorite southern dish would have to be Fried Green tomatos.

Pecan pie

Mmmm... it's hard to pick... pecan pie comes to mind off the top of my head... but I wouldn't turn down biscuits with sausage gravy.

Chicken friend steak! I had it once in Kentucky and I know they are serving that stuff up in heaven!

does baked mac and cheese count?? i think that counts as southern...but i like to put jalapenos and pepper jack in, so it might be a little more south-western ;)

For my savory: smoked baloney (you say bologna, I say baloney) and hush puppies
For my sweet: Hummingbird cake
I have two favorite southern dishes, devilled eggs and eastern NC pork bbq. YUM!

Pecan pie, never had it 'til my brother in law requested one. So I found a few recipes and he was thrilled. It's been a Thanksgiving staple ever since.

My favorite southern dish would have to be pimento cheese. I love it on crackers or sandwiches, either way it is delicious! I also love sweet tea (of course) and as a true Southern gal, I love shrimp & girts! :)
October 9 | Unregistered CommenterLaura
I like mashed potatoes, corn bread, peach muffins, and sweet potato pie.

Super-duper sweet corn bread cooked in a cast iron skillet. Oh my goodness I need to make some now....
October 9 | Unregistered CommenterGMM
Fried chicken and biscuits.
October 10 | Unregistered Commenterk
I have to say biscuits. Buttered, jammed, covered in gravy, filled with egg and/or bacon or sausage and/or cheese - they're a whole lot of delicious that can be consumed in so many ways.
