A Kentucky Mountain Giveaway: Snug Hollow Farm Cookbook!

Posted Dec 19 2010 11:58pm
I was born and raised in Kentucky, but haven't really known KY. In some ways it took me moving away to appreciate the rolling hills of central KY with their maze of fences holding in beautiful horses, to the barren snow covered fields on a cold winter day.

But it was the mountains that were still a mystery to me; an area I hadn't been exposed to. That is until my new job! With this new position I work with fifteen school districts mostly in the "hollers" of Eastern Kentucky. This job gave me a chance to find my state and gain an incredible appreciation for new areas. The people, the culture, but most of all the mountains. The Appalachian mountains are said to be the oldest mountains in the country, Kentucky being a part of this beautiful range. I have had a chance to see the Appalachians of North Carolina and Virgina before, but it's the section that crosses my home state that makes me want to come back to visit again and again.

 So, when my husband and I decided to take a get-a-way the other weekend, we chose the mountains. We needed to "get off the grid" for awhile. To step away from the hustle and bustle of the holidays and meditate on the real meaning of Christmas.

Proof that you are NOT in the city anymore!

 Snug Hollow Farm Bed and Breakfast is located on 300 acres of organic living! Barbara Napier, the owner is just as amazing as the land she tends to everyday. She not only gardens, runs the bed and breakfast, but she can COOK! Yes, after taking the first bite of homemade salad and bread at dinner I knew we were destined to be friends. You can flip through her vegetarian cookbook, Snug Hollow Farm Cookbook---which by the way I am giving away a signed copy below---and see that we do have a lot in common. When you stay at her Inn you have the choice of enjoying dinner, who would be crazy enough not to take advantage of this, which could be anything from pizza with fresh, homemade dough and sauce to a creamy butter pasta dish with roasted winter vegetables. And of course there is the treat of breakfast and hot coffee. I fell in love with her Crispy Oatmeal and Cornmeal Oat Waffles!

A breakfast favorite

I love how Barbara explains basic mixtures such as the combination of nutritional yeast and tamari sauce for salad dressings and gravy. Right when I came home I had to try out her Braided Rosemary Bread recipe. Wowzers, how easy and absolutely wonderful it is!!!
