Favorite Cookbook Giveaway and Williams Sonoma Gift Card

Hi y’all! I sure hope you’re excited, ‘cuz I’m about to launch my very first giveaway. With 2017 coming to a close, and so many new things ahead for 2018, I just feel like gathering people together and celebrating with something fun and exciting. What sounds more fun and exciting than a giveaway!?!

So what, you ask, am I giving away? Well, I’ve decided to share my favorite cookbook of 2017 with you – Deep Run Roots by Chef Vivian Howard. Vivian has been a huge inspiration to me this year. After I cut the cable chord back in April, I started exploring different television options available on my new streaming device (high-tech y’all!) and I stumbled across her show “A Chef’s Life” on PBS. I became HOOKED! Starting four seasons late on a tv show sure does make binge watching so much easier!

First of all, living in NYC but then moving home – some place she never thought she’d return to permanently – well, that’s my story, too. I moved back to Metro Detroit. It’s not the deep south, but it isn’t NYC either! Seeing Vivian take on new experiences and projects as she follows her passion for food and the talent she’s developed in her career, even when she is admittedly nervous or stretched too thin, has been super relatable and encouraging for me. Whatever the stressors, she pursues, persists and succeeds. I absolutely love that about her. For me personally, the past few years have also been all about new challenges and bigger risks than ever before. Often times leading me to wonder if I’m just going crazy. Watching Vivian take on new challenges and win in her life really gives me hope for all my crazy decisions!

As I watch Vivian’s show, or read her cookbook, there are so many things I feel I have in common with her. She doesn’t know it, but I’m pretty sure we could be Besties. Or, you could call her my….Spirit Animal. In either case, I hope her book inspires you the way she has inspired me.

If Vivian ever learns of this giveaway, I hope it serves as a small “Thank you” to her for helping me believe in my own roots, and my own story. Thanks, Vivian!
