April 2007 Cookbook Giveway




The month is slipping away fast so I had to scramble to find a cookbook to giveway. I knew it had to be a cookbook that I already owned a copy of since I didn't want to offer anything that wasn't tried-and-true so I started going through my Recipes, listed by cookbook link and as soon as I got to this one, I knew this was a book that many of you would enjoy.

This book is loaded, LOADED, with healthy recipes. There are approximately 500 of them. There are appetizers, kid's favorites, breads, desserts, main courses, sides - basically, recipes in almost every category you can think of. There are pictures of every recipe (and nutritional information) and it's spiral bound. You can see a samples of the layout here, here and here. (I think the copy I ordered to give away has a plastic binding so don't get too excited.)

These are some of the recipes from this cookbook that I've tried so far:
Banana Waffles
Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chicken Fingers
Garlic-Mustard Green Beans
Memphis-Style Pork Chops
Multigrain and Cherry Muffins
Orzo-Broccoli Pilaf
Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
Zesty Swiss Steak

This is how it works - just leave a comment on this post. 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 winner. Then I'll contact the winner for a mailing address and then I mail the book! I'll pay the shipping, of course. I'll open this to everyone - in or out of the U.S.

I've received some some weird hits, resulting from queries on common e-mail extensions, hitting the cookbook giveaway posts. Probably someone trolling for e-mail addresses so feel free to modify your e-mail address when you leave it, using 'at' instead of@ and 'dot com' instead of '.com'.

They lucky winner will get a nice new copy of this book, while I have to deal with sticky pages since I spilled something on my copy some time ago.

Good Luck!

Include me Paula! It sounds great.

Another Jen interested! This sounds like my kind of cookbook. I gotta have pictures to see how the recipe is SUPPOSED to look (what can I say, I'm a visual person!)

My email is mrs_pile@hotmail.com

And like Jan, I'd be ecstatic with the sticky copy and you could keep the new one!

Love your blog Paula. You amaze me at how often you cook and the variety. I get so in a rut and can't think of what to make. Plus a lot of the time, there's nobody home to eat and DH would be happy with a bowl of cereal. Although he'd be happier with a meal but his work hours are weird and I never know what time he'll be home.

Thanks for the contest!

Claire said...

I just found your site, and am a fellow cookbook "junkie". With my "middle-age-middle" starting to concern me lately, I have been seeking healthier recipes to try, and this cookbook seems to fit the bill.

OOPS! I forgot to sign in before my last comment. Anyway, thanks for the chance to win healthy cookbook!

slloyd said...

I have a question actually. Do you know of a way to remove the strong odor of onions that permeates everything my home when I use Lipton or Mrs. Grass Onion Soup Mix? This is one of my favorite shortcuts and adds so much flavor to certain dishes that I do not want to stop using it. Any suggestions?
