We’ve chosen a winner of Virginia Willis’s Bon Appetit, Y’all! Christy, please drop us a line with your mailing address so we can get the book shipped out to you! Everyone else, thanks so much for playing along…stay tuned for more announcements and more giftaways!

You may not be getting our copy of Bon Appetit, Y’all, but don’t let that stop you from trying Virginia Willis’s recipes. You can buy the book yourself, or you can browse the list below that we pulled together over the last few days. We’ve listed all of the recipes from the cookbook and then proceeded to search for each one of them online. Yes, we’re that obsessive. Yes we’re that compulsive. Yes, yes we did indeed click 40-50 pages deep on google’s search results to make sure we didn’t miss any of Viriginia Willis’s recipes.

(There are a few recipes that we couldn’t find, but we’re hoping that Christy will try them first and share…and if you happen to run across any during your culinary clicking through the web, let us know. We’d love to keep this list growing…!)
