deep run roots

my sweet friend got this for me for my birthday and it’s everything everyone says it is. it won cookbook of the year for good reason. it certainly blew me away. the recipes (every single one of them and there are LOADS) look delicious and totally approachable. trust me on this one. if you have a loved one who loves to cook this is a sure thing. i’ve made 3 of the recipes so far in the 5 days i’ve owned it and all have been crazy good.
