Holiday Cookbooks: Perfect for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to pull out your favorite cookbook and plan a special treat for mom.  

If you or your mom love cooking for the holidays, or anytime, a holiday cookbook is also the perfect gift for Mother's Day.  I know I personally have a collection of specialty and holiday cookbooks that I absolutely love and frequently grab for reference.  I enjoy "pouring over a cookbook", as my own mother would say, reading recipes, making a grocery list and planning to try a new recipe.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks A Year of Holidays

Our very own pioneer woman, RenaissanceWoman2010, reviewed a fabulous cookbook for all of us recently in her article entitled, I'm Spending the Holidays with Ree.  I was so impressed by her review, that I simply had to purchase my own copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks A Year of Holidays.

I have my own grandmother's Pecan Pie recipe that I use, but the recipe and featured photo were all I needed to see to know I had to have the cookbook!

The Pioneer Woman's Holiday cookbook is chock full of some great recipes and while I don't know Ree personally, I do know she will now be a part of my holidays too.

May You All Have a 
Happy Mother's Day!


  1. Thanks for bringing us some great ideas for holiday cooking. I'm always looking for a new and interesting recipe.

  2. I'm not much into cooking for the holidays anymore but still enjoy a great cookbook review. Thanks for sharing the link to The Pioneer Woman's cookbook review. Diana did a fine job of convincing me it's filled with yummy recipes!

  3. Wow, does this look like a cookbook I can add to my library. I'm always looking for new recipes to try for the holidays.

  4. Ah... I remember Diana's page about the Pioneer Woman's Cookbook. Yummy looking recipes delightfully reviewed. I really shouldn't read blogs that talk about food when I haven't had dinner yet... and I'm starving! :)

  5. Thank you for featuring two pioneer women today. Deeply appreciated! There are some great Mother's Day recipes in Ree's cookbook. I just love the Pioneer Woman's blog, too. It's one of the most successful on the Internet. Her traffic and engagement are unreal. I want to be like Ree when I grow up.
