The Pioneer Woman – A Year of Holidays Book {Giveaway}

The Pioneer Woman - A Year of Holidays Cookbook Giveaway via

If you haven’t heard yet, Ree wrote another fabulous cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks ~ A Year of Holidays! This one is full of her very favorite holiday recipes. I love it because most recipes can be used all year long, not only for holidays.

And guess what? Today I’m giving away THREE signed books just for you! Ree will sign the winners books and mail them directly to you herself. How awesome is that?!

If you didn’t know, I grew up in Ree’s small town of Pawhuska, Oklahoma and went to school with her husband. He’s a great guy and I love seeing all of the adorable photos of him and their sweet kids throughout this new book!

The Pioneer Woman - A Year of Holidays Cookbook Giveaway via

When you are from such a small town, everyone is practically family in some way, or they either grew up playing on the playground with each other. I am so proud of my talented blog friends when they write new books, create cool products or show up on TV. It’s even more fun to see those bloggers succeed right from tiny my hometown like Ree!

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is head home to visit family in Oklahoma, then to Ree’s house for her giant 4th of July party. You would not believe the amount of food being served on that day. It’s about the best pot luck party you could ever imagine! So I was thrilled to see some of her favorite recipes and photos from that party in her book.

I can’t wait to make her Watermelon Sangria… a 4th of July tradition! Because usually by the time I get to the party, most of it is gone and I only get a tiny cup full. ha! If you make anything from her book for a party, it must be this. Believe me!

I have been drooling over photos for over a week now since I got the new book! Toasted ravioli is next on my list to make. Yum!
