Muppets Thanksgiving with Big Bird

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada! I hope you can forgive me for starting my Thanksgiving post with a rather dark piece of humour, but food from fiction has been a part of my life for so many years now, that I can't help myself from sharing my favourites, no matter how "inappropriate" they may be.

Besides, it's funny.

I have had an incredible year that's still not quite done, but I'm grateful for so much that has happened already, including the publishing of Outlander Kitchen: The Official Outlander Companion Cookbook in June.

I'm thrilled to report that we've sold A LOT of books, and I have all of you to thank for that.


I'm thankful for the enthusiasm with which the fandom has responded to the cookbook. Everyday, people like Jenna, who made this very pretty, dressed-up version of Governor Tryon's Humble Crumble Pie, send me pictures of their creations. I love her leaf crust!

Keep those images coming on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram...tere's another reason to take photos of your OK Cookbook creations, which I'll talk about more down below.


I'm very grateful for all of the press coverage for the cookbook as well. Most recently, BJR's Fudge made it into the People Magazine Holiday Recipe issue (out last week).

My mom bought all of the copies from her local Safeway, so you'll have to go somewhere else to get your own copy.


There's no better way for me to give thanks than to host a big, INTERNATIONAL, cookbook giveaway! I'll be giving away a copy signed by both Diana and myself, as well as at least one more copy of the cookbook signed by myself. I'm planning a Grand Prize and several smaller prize packs including aprons and double-signed recipes cards!

Starting later this week, there will be several chances to enter. For some of those entries, you'll need to post a photo of your Outlander Kitchen creation. (Don't have the cookbook yet? Dinna fash! Check out the OK Recipe Index and choose a dish to make from there.)

For your first chance to win, please make sure you're subscribed to my newsletter. It's coming out later this week, and will have one way to enter that is exclusive to newsletter subscribers, as well as a recipe for a veggie version of a popular Outlander Kitchen comfort-food recipe. Subscribe now!

To everyone celebrating today, I wish you the best of celebrations with your friends and family.
