Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Pioneer Woman Cooks book giveaway

I've done one giveaway already for this book. Since the interest was so high for the first giveaway and since Ree offered up an additional three books, I'm having another giveaway. And, yes, people, you read correctly. Three books.

If you've read The Pioneer Woman's blog, you've seen the recipe section of her site and probably have fallen in love with the not only the recipes, but the pictures and everything else related to her life on a cattle ranch.

Ree was kind enough to send me a review copy back in October of her new book, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl, a luxuriously picturesque book that there are not enough adjectives to describe. This book, which lists for $27.50, includes several of the recipes on her blog as well as a ton of new ones, all including the same sort of step-by-step pictures and instructions that you've grown to love. In addition there's a bunch of pictures from around the farm and information about the family (like, did you know that Marlboro Man's real name is Ladd?).

If you are not familiar with her blog (and, if not, have been under a rock?), then I urge you to go check it out if you are at all interested in life in the country. I must warn you, however, that her blog and life is not a sustainable existence so don't expect any stories of living off the land. This is a true working cattle ranch.

From the book description:
After years of living in Los Angeles, I made a pit stop in my hometown in Oklahoma on the way to a new, exciting life in Chicago. It was during my stay at home that I met Marlboro Man, a mysterious cowboy with steely blue eyes and a muscular, work-honed body.

A strict vegetarian, I fell hard and fast, and before I knew it we were married and living on his ranch in the middle of nowhere, taking care of animals, and managing a brood of four young children. I had no idea how I'd wound up there, but I knew it was exactly where I belonged.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks is a homespun collection of photography, rural stories, and scrumptious recipes that have defined my experience in the country. I share many of the delicious cowboy-tested recipes I've learned to make during my years as an accidental ranch wife—including Rib-Eye Steak with Whiskey Cream Sauce, Lasagna, Fried Chicken, Patsy's Blackberry Cobbler, and Cinnamon Rolls—not to mention several "cowgirl-friendly" dishes, such as Sherried Tomato Soup, Olive Cheese Bread, and Creme Brulee. I show my recipes in full color, step-by-step detail, so it's as easy as pie to follow along.

Now, I know a lot of you probably have some New Years resolutions to work on but, believe me, even though her recipes won't exactly be in Cooking Light anytime soon, they are totally worth the calories!

To enter the book giveaway, just add your name to the comments of this post. You have until Friday, January 15th, at midnight PST to sign up. I'll announce the three winners this weekend.

Oh, I could use that book. My Texan hubby and child love southern recipes, but since I'm from Ontario, I rarely make any and not with too much success. Her book would definitely help. PS Don't you adore her mustangs and pooch ?
