September 2007 Cookbook Giveaway

I thought I should get this in before the month was over. I've been wanting to give this cookbook away for some time but when I went back to Ollie's there wasn't a copy left anywhere (and I looked and looked and looked). I finally got my hands on a copy of this somewhere else.

This is the ultimate brunch-breakfast-sweets-with-a-bit-of-savory-thrown-in-too cookbook. There are over 1500 recipes organized by state and by inn or B&B. Some are duplicates. The book isn't organized very well and the index stinks but the recipes are there. There are quiches, frittatas, french toast, pancakes, omelets, muffins, biscuits, bread puddings, stratas, scones and so much more. There are no photographs but you won't miss them.

So far I've made from this book:
Cinnamon-Apple Cake
Pineapple Oatmeal Muffins
Strawberry (Peach) Streusel Bars

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'll mail the book! I'll pay the shipping, of course (I'll probably send it media rate - postal rates have gone up again). Unfortunately, I'm going to have to limit this to mailing to US mailing addresses only. Postage is just getting too expensive. My apologies to all of my foreign readers but blame the postal service.

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', etc.

When I recipe calls for vinegar, does this mean you can use distilled white or apple cider vinegar? I assume it means white distilled. Which is standard if no specific vinegar is specified?

Which do you recommend for the Campbells Soup Tomato French Dressing?
