It’s Time Again for a Box of Cookbooks Giveaway for the Week of 5-9-11!
May 10, 2011 in Uncategorized
It’s been too long since I had a box of cookbooks giveaway! This box will be won by some lucky reader in a random drawing, and consists of an eclectic group of books. First, I have Maida Heatter’s classic cookie book, which everyone knows is one of the best cookie books ever. For some airplane reading or relaxing on a hot afternoon, MFK Fisher will entertain you with her views on food.
Here is a great book for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, or for picnics over the summer. It’s packed with recipes and fun picnic and family gathering ideas.
Now here’s a fun little book from designer, Kate Spade! It’s all about being a good host for special occasions such as cooking for friends, setting the table, invitations, music, dinner parties, gift and decorating ideas, and everything it takes to make any occasion memorable for all. You will love this book!
How about some vintage Betty Crocker? Here is the first edition, 1962 classic of easy meals. Such great retro food!
And yet another Betty Crocker, but this one is for the kids or grandkids! So many kids love cooking and this one is for some fun baking time with mom or grandma.
If you would like to enter the random drawing for these fabulous books, send your name and email address to [email protected] (no one sees it but me) by this Saturday, May 14th, at 11:59 pm CST. Since I didn’t post the giveaway on my usual Monday, and drawing on Friday, I’ll extend the entry time to Saturday. Good luck in the drawing – it’s easy to do! And come back every week for a new book or books to be given away.
Congratulations to Phillip H. from Ohio who won last week’s giveaway, the classic book, “The Joy of Cooking.”
Why I Started This Blog
I love cookbooks. I mean I really love them. I love to read them, treasure them, learn from them, and, of course, cook from them. To me, cookbooks take on a life all of their own. They are history, family, and memories. I have been collecting cookbooks and writing down treasured recipes of family, friends, and neighbors since about age twelve, which means I now own thousands of cookbooks, recipes, and clippings. Now I want to share them with you along with the many other culinary treasures of my cellar." - Debbie Vanni
