This book has a ton of old southern favorites, new southern favorites, and southern with a twist. Has anyone ever tried Bacon Pralines? At first I thought; Ewww!, but then...might be good.
My friends at work also got together and bought me a gift card to Kiepersol Estates. http://www.kiepersol.com It's a local Texas winery, and I have become a huge fan of Texas wines.
My buddy Barbara who knows my cooking obsession got a subscription to Cooking with Paula Deen. I cannot wait!
So...not that wild and crazy. But I'm too out of shape for wild and crazy, so this one was just perfect! Maybe if I start training now for next year....
