Not surprising, this fluffy kernel of goodness is one of the most popular snacks in the United States. If you are seeking a terrific gift that is sure to please everyone on your holiday shopping list, you certainly can't go wrong with a gift like the Popcorn Factory Snowtime Snack Assortment.
On the eleventh day of book gifting, Rural Mom suggests Southern Po' Boy Cookbook: Mouthwatering Sandwich Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans
I could say I picked the eleventh pick in our Rural Mom 12 Days of Book Gifting Suggestions because of it's incredible photography, crazy-good recipes and its potential to make my lunches a whole lot brighter throughout the winter season. These reasons would all be spot on, but what truly tipped my hand to put it on the Rural Mom bookshelf were the memories of all the fantastic po' boys we ate on our recent trip to New Orleans. I've been longing to recreate some of the magic at home, and now I have the cookbook to do it!
