|With this newly released cookbook, Cookin' it with Kix: The Art of Celebrating and the Fun of Outdoor Cooking, Kix Brooks is sharing a collection of favorite recipes, some inspired, but many tried and true, hand-me-down heritage recipes from his own family.|
Disclosure: I received a copy of this cookbook as well as the promotional giveaway books free, as a member of the "Cookin it with Kix" blogger team.
As the highest selling duo in country music history, with more than 23, #1 hits, 75 major industry awards, and over 30 million in record sales, if you know country music, you know Brooks & Dunn. I mean who doesn't go back home from wherever you currently are when listenin' to Red Dirt Road?
Taught the kind of cooking southern men pass on to their boys by his Dad and his grandfather, D-Daddy, food and fellowship is as much a part of Kix Brooks' life as is music. No surprise there, considering his roots run deep in what is considered Sportsman Paradise, aka Louisiana, where hunting and fishing often rule the supper menu.
Now with this newly released cookbook, Cookin'it with Kix The Art of Celebrating and the Fun of Outdoor Cooking, Kix Brooks is sharing a collection of favorites, some inspired, but many tried and true, hand-me-down heritage recipes from his family. Don't be fooled by the name and thinkin' this is strictly a book that'll put you standing over a grill. It's not.
Contents range from the usual shrimp boils and fish fry gatherings, to those post-hunt, hole-in-the-ground, cooking with fire recipes, to classic holiday meals and recipes for other celebrations. Scattered throughout are "Kix Tips" offering up suggestions for substitutes, add-ins, meal accompaniments and simple kitchen helpers. Here's a little run-down of what you can expect.
You'll get a little history about Kix Brooks and his Louisiana roots and background and where the inspiration for this cookbook came from. You'll learn about his venture into raising Beefmaster cattle and how he came to be a partner in Arrington Vineyards and he'll introduce you to his co-writer Donna Britt.
|Grilled and Smothered Strip Steak|
|Camp Grilled Wings|
This chapter covers spreads for occasions from holiday meals, to simple get-togethers.
|Taco Time Beans|
|Lemony Tomato Jam|
Aunt Katty's Cheese Wafers, Sweet Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Deviled Eggs, Tabbouleh Salad, Oven "Fried" Fries, Angel Biscuits, Jalapeno Corn Muffins, Pimento Cheese - Two Ways, Tomato Jalapeno Garlic Schmear, Lemony Tomato Jam, Tipsy Fig Preserves, Honey Butter with Orange Zest and Molasses Apple Butter.
|Kickin' It Hot Sauce|
|Chocolate Praline Pecan Pie|
If all that didn't make you hungry, you better check your pulse!
Seriously, this is a fun book and an impressive cookbook that I know you'll enjoy adding to your own collection as well as gifting. If you're a Kix Brooks fan you'll especially enjoy the personal history and memories he shares with us about growing up in Louisiana. One caveat. Although each chapter is indexed at the beginning, finding things by category or ingredient may be a bit of a challenge since the book lacks a comprehensive back-of-the-book summary index. It's not that big of a deal though, so as you see something you want to make, or when you make something you love, I suggest using some of these handy, dandy tools to mark your page.
Life is short y'all... Celebrate!
