Enter to Win Martha’s American Food

MarthaAmericanFood

Martha Stewart makes me homesick. Okay, let me clarify that.

I grew up in the American Midwest, surrounded by corn fields, farmland, and berry-picking expeditions every summer. When I started paging through Martha’s American Food I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic. Several of these dishes made frequent appearances on our dinner table: meatloaf, chicken pot pies, tuna noodle casserole, pot roast, sloppy joes, kielbasa, creamy coleslaw, green bean casserole, strawberry shortcake, cherry pie. Oh, I’m drooling on my keyboard. That’s attractive.

This cookbook is full of Mom’s home cooking Martha-fied! The photos are gorgeous, the recipes are classic and easy—as American food should be, and she covers every region from coast to coast. But don’t fret, my Canadian friends, as “American” as this cookbook is, I think you’re going to absolutely love it.

In fact, I’m overjoyed to offer a copy to one of you lovely, lucky readers.

Anyone hungry??? ;-)

    I think my favourite has to be the good old hamburger, but it has to be a really good burger. I don’t think there is anything as satisfying as a perfectly seasoned, juicy, garlicky, grilled hamburger on a fresh bun or kaiser with lettuce, cheddar cheese, beefsteak tomatoes, ketchup, relish, spanish onion, sauteed mushrooms. Yum, Yum, Yum. A nice order of beautifully brown, piping hot fries on the side & you’re in heaven!

    I’d have to say that fajitas are my favorite American food (although there is a lot of other great choices). It has been a favorite dish in our household for years. Although one thinks Tex-Mex when one thinks of fajitas, the ‘Tex’ in ‘Tex-Mex’ wins: fajitas did have their beginnings in Texas!

  276.  Lynn Dubourt said, on May 5th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Roast Beef and gravy.

  277.  Jeannette Laframboise said, on August 24th, 2012 at 12:01 pm
