November Cookbook(s) Giveaway

I really wanted to offer a book this month that I could afford to send anywhere. I also wanted to offer something with a holiday theme. I wasn't able to find one book that met both these requirements so this month I'm offering two books.

The first book is small but mighty. It's called 30-Minute Weekday Meals and it's from a popular line of books, Company's Coming, that honestly I had not heard of previously. I'm probably in the minority as there are over 100 books in this line. I chose this book for a few reasons. First of all, it's small enough to be mailed in an envelope. Second of all, it has metric measurements for everything. It also has an interesting variety of quick meals and a nice spiral binding so it will lie flat as you follow a recipe.



Everyone can enter to win this book. I'll send it anywhere on the planet.

The second book is Christmas With Southern Living 2001. 2001 is long gone but the recipes and decor and craft advice in this book are timeless. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you can still enjoy the recipes. The calendars for November and December 2001 are probably not of much use now but the rest of the book is still relevant.


This is a hardcover book so I'm going to have to stick to U.S. mailing addresses for this one.

This is how it works - just leave a comment on the giveaway post letting me know which of the cookbooks you're interested in - if you're outside the US that can only be 30 Minute Weekday Meals but if your mailing address is in the US, you can try to win both. I just need an e-mail address (if your profile links to an e-mail, you don't need to type it out, I'll find it). Entry is open until the last day of the month. First chance I get after that, I'll draw the winners. There will a drawing for each book. Then I'll contact the winners for mailing addresses and then I mail them! I'll pay the shipping, of course.

Please enter me for either of the books. I am a big fan of Southern Living, I subscribe to the magazine for the recipes alone. I also can never have enough cookbooks for weekday meals. I cook in an elementary school so when I get home I always look for something fast to make so I can have some time to sit down as I don't at work all day.

Southern Living : ). The company's coming books are really big here in Canada. I'm pretty sure the author is Canadian.
