A new cookbook filled with sought-after recipes and tips by Francine Bryson
Calling all bakers! Blue Ribbon Baking from a Redneck Kitchen is a cookbook you need to add to your collection right away (or put on your wish list for sure). This cookbook is written by my very talented friend Francine Bryson. She has won more than 200 local and national baking competitions and was the runner-up and crowd favorite on CBS’s The American Baking Competition last year. Make sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom.
Francine has poured her heart and soul into this cookbook and I’m excited to share it with you. This has been her lifelong dream and I’m so happy she’s living it to the fullest. You go girl! We met at the Great American Pie Festival earlier this year and have been counting down to her cookbook release ever since. I have a feeling that we’d be baking up a storm all the time if we lived next door to each other…and be making trips together to our favorite apple orchard in North Carolina in the fall along with her Team Redneck friends.
This cookbook is filled with amazing recipes and lots of blue ribbon tips. The pie chapter also has several crust recipes for any taste and skill level. Each recipe has a story from Francine that’s full of her southern charm. You can tell there’s a story just by some of the recipe names.
Check out some of the recipes featured in this cookbook. Better have a napkin ready in case you start drooling!
