Romantic Prairie Cookbook & A Giveaway

I'm so excited..... 
First of all...... I love to cook and Fifi O' Neill's Romantic Prairie Cookbook has been on my "want" list from the moment I got wind that it was debuting.  It's now available for purchase and let me tell you..... It's 192 pages of wonderful!!  It's full of great photos by the famous photographer Mark Lohman, featuring beautiful locations and delicious recipes.  Fifi is so full of talent and creativity she just keeps coming up with one great publication after another. What will she think of next?

 Second...... my friend Lu's fabulous recipe for Salmon was featured in her book.  Lu's an amazing cook who comes from a long line of Italian Chef's.  Every time Lu's cooked for my family and me, I feel like I'm dining Alfresco in Italy!  My mouth is watering just writing this sentence.

Lu's little boy, Dusty (whom I adore) made his debut in the cookbook..... serving up his little lady friend some lemonade.  What a little gentlemen he is!

  Last but not least, I'm so excited to share with all of you that my store A Beautiful Mess is a featured source in the cookbook!

 I'm so honored Fifi, thank you!!!

In honor of all this excitement Lu is having a grand giveaway on her blog.  She's giving away a signed copy of Romantic Prairie Cookbook.  You can go to her blog to enter to win.  While on her blog you can copy her recipe for her now famous salmon.....YUM!

Good luck to all of you and be sure to tell Lu that I sent you over to win!

Have a great Sunday everyone!
