Grits-Girls (giveaway)


My eyes are bloodshot, my stomach is growling and I need a serious intervention people. Really. I am not kidding. I am never going to fit through my doors after the holidays.  See, I met someone. Someone wonderful! And I was up with them all night. Oh, it was such comfort. It was so sensual. I am in love…with ALL of her recipes. Yes, I am having an affair with

See all the colored tabs? Those are all recipes that I want to try…soon. There are a couple that I am going to make for Thanksgiving. But I want to make them all, now. There are some recipes that she has that are already some family favorites here, which tells me, she and I have similar tastes. Like…Orange Balls. Remember awhile back when I made Orange Balls? Yep, she makes them. Many recipes I have never heard of and never tried…so I have lots of new things to present to my family and friends.

Whether you are a seasoned cook or just a beginner, you will fall in love with Dana, her recipes, and her family and friends as you walk through the fabric of her life. You will feel as if you have made a whole new batch of friends as you make recipes from each one and hear the story behind it. Like the waffles they have on Christmas morning as big glasses of milk chill in the freezer, a tradition started years ago by her father.

The GRITS-GIRLS cookbooks are must have for every kitchen and would make anyone a GREAT Christmas gift.  And Dana has graciously offered a WHOLE set (yes, all 3 books) to ONE of you lucky readers.

    I would probably have to go with “GRITS: A Celebration of Southern Recipes from Family and Friends” before trying any of the others. My husband, daughter, and I all love Southern food (DH is from TN, and it’s where we currently live), and I’d love to learn how to cook his favorites ;)

    Thank you for this GREAT giveaway!!

    I love the Grits book because I love Grits. The only thing better in the morning than grits is scrapple. But these are Southern Gals and I bet they know their grits.

    Is anyone looking…Okay, I’ll have one more slice! because I find the name to be funny! I was born and raised in the South and I miss it a lot. People tend to think Oklahoma is the South but it isn’t anything close. Its just a distictly different world!

    Put just a little bit more on my plate…please! sounds like a great cookbook to have. Thank-you.

  • michele p  says:

    I lived in FL when I was 8-9 years old for a little over a year. I loved the Southern Cooking-and long to go back again (last time was in 2000 twice!) and sample some more wonderful foods from my youth. I can remember corn dogs I first tried in FL, then moved back to ME and had to wait some years for us to get them here! My favorite cookbook would be the Grits one, tried and true Southern recipes-definitely giving me the chance to make some comfort food here in the chilly Northeast!
