The New Southwest Cookbook Review #Giveaway

Home » Miscellaneous Recipes and Posts » The New Southwest Cookbook Review #Giveaway

There was a moment of glee when I ripped open the package containing Meagan Micozzi’s The New Southwest: Classic Flavors with a Modern Twist. Back in my early blogging days, I started visiting Meagan’s blog, Scarletta Bakes, for a few giggles, cooking tips and always for top notch Southwest recipes. Meagan has entertained while teaching us the tricks of this cuisine through her blog for years. And now she was offering a slew of all new recipe in her very own cookbook…and I was given the opportunity write a The New Southwest Cookbook Review.

With said book in hand, I cooked up my first batch ever of Migas, a Tex-Mex version of scrambled eggs , then moved on to her twist on Coyotas, a Mexican cookie, with her brown butter version. Paging through the cookbook, I saw so many tempting recipes, but of course, I lingered over the baked goods: Sage and Honey Skillet Biscuits, Grilled Apple Pie and Sonoran Honey Streusel Coffee Cake all piqued my interest. This cookbook may never leave my counter! All the gorgeous photos were taken by Meagan herself (I love to see how a recipe is supposed to look before I start cooking) plus there are helpful tidbits interspersed throughout the book. I’m imagining that every single recipe is as marvelous as the two I’ve tested….so I know you all would love to win your own copy.
