Bloggy Giveaway!

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS FOR ENTERING! 2 NAMES WILL BE DRAWN AND THE WINNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED!**
It's bloggy giveaway time!!! In honor of my new (trial :)) weekly feature, Keeping Creative Kitchens, and because they are my favorite and I always have to give them away, I'm giving away cookbooks again! For every 100 entries I will add another winner. Each winner will receive a cookbook -- no longer yet to be determined!

You will receive one of these hardcover, beautifully photographed cookbooks: Cooking from the Hip by Cat Cora (Iron Chef America) or Forever Summer by Nigella Lawson (also from the Food Network). I personally would like to own both of these! You will have a choice and I will try to honor it but no guarantees. I hope you will enjoy!

I may or may not have more than two times the amount of cookbooks on that shelf... :) And I may or may not read cookbooks recreationally... :)

Anyway, here are the rules (you knew there had to be some :)):
1) You have to have a U.S. or APO mailing address (if you live international, you are welcome to enter, I will just need someplace to send it here in the states - I'm sorry to have to limit it).
2) You do not have to be a blogger to enter but please make sure I have a way to contact you!
3) You may only enter once.
4) To enter, you must leave a comment and tell me your favorite thing to cook or bake or your favorite cookbook (not website).
5) Failure to follow the above will unfortunately disqualify you.

I will close the comments sometime on Saturday and randomly select the winner(s). I will contact the winner (s) via e-mail or blog as well as posting the results here and linking to the giveaway site.

That's it - HAVE FUN! I love entering all the giveaways and I have even won a few things. My absolute favorite win so far was a Sleepy Wrap baby carrier - so great and I use it all the time! So go join in all the fun at bloggy giveaways!

Fun!!!! I love cookbooks! Thank you for this opportunity!

I live in the US. I love to cook casseroles! I think I love the variety of them and just easy to put together and come up with different variations! :)

thanks again!

Robin said...

How fun! I collect cookbooks. My favorite thing to cook is Thai curry - an quick and super-delicious dinner.

stephanie said...

Well, I'm still learning what I like to cook most in the kitchen, but my husband loves Hawaiian Rice and I like to bake Molasses cookies. And you know I have an interesting selection of cookbooks to peruse.

Mama10EE said...

I think my favorite thing to cook is my homemade pasta sauce. I just love how it takes all day, the smell permeates the house, and it always reminds me of my grandmother (Mom's mom, from Italy, who passed 17 years ago) and my mother who both taught me how to make sauce. I also love to make/bake just about any sweets there can be made!

Jenna said...

Hmmm... choosing a FAVORITE recipe is just too hard. My favorite go-to-cookbook is the updated Fanny Farmer's Cookbook. I have the original from 1897 as well, but things like oven temperatures are just too handy to not use! I made a Swedish bread this weekend that was very yummy, from the Fanny Farmer's.

ladyoffruit said...

I love cookbooks! My favorite one is probably the one my little sisters' church club put together as a fundraiser.

Holly said...

I love making breads and muffins. My favorite cookbook, currently, is one put together by the women of my church several years ago. Terrific giveaway. Thanks!

Bethany said...

How fun! I just found your blog recently and LOVE it because I love to cook, too!! And I've been known to read cookbooks and Taste of Home magazines recreationally as well!!
My name is Bethany nad I live in the US. I love to bake bread because it's an all day process and I feel like that first warm, buttered slice is the ultimate reward for the work I did:) My favorite cookbooks are the Taste of Home ones. When I got married two years ago I couldn't cook or bake at all (or so I thought). Someone gave us ToH 2006 for our wedding and I was determined to be a better cook than my husband. Our weight gain since the wedding is proof that I accomplished my goal and now I love to cook!!! For Christmas this year I'm putting together a family cookbook for all of the women on both sides. Should be fun!

Megan said...

Hey friend. Cooking is something I enjoy doing, although I'm finding now that I'm working full-time that I don't get to do it as often. But, I love making a risotto in my rice cooker that has asparagus in it -- SO good and SO easy!
You know where to find me. :)

Chris said...

Hi Alaina! Missed seeing you yesterday down in Franklin. What a fun giveaway idea - I have to admit I read cookbooks and Bon Appetit magazine recreationally :). One favorite cookbook is Williams Sonoma "Savoring Soups & Salads" - it is comprised of soup and salad recipes from 5 different world regions, I think they are North America, Asia, France, Italy and Spain/Portugal (which seems kind of funny). But it's a great cookbook - I made butternut squash soup from it the other day and it was to die for, so delicious.

I just love cooking Bauernbrot- Authentic German Bread. I got the recipe from my grandmother, and every year for New Years, I try to cook it for the family. It's a great tradition!

I love making soup, soup of any kind! My stick blender and I are good friends *L*

Lynne said...

I love cookbooks and would love either one of these.

I'm a good cook but my family isn't too adventurous so I don't get to experiment a lot. I really enjoy baking though, especially trying different types of cookies for the holidays.

My favorite thing to cook is hot wings for my husband-- they are his favorite. Oddly enough though, my favorite cookbook is The silver Palate!

I have been using the crockpot alot lately. I have gotten most of those recipes from a cookbook my mom just got me. It is called The Secrets of Slow Cooking.

I love cookbooks as well, especially to read through them and look at their pictures.
Favorite book right now, even though I just bought it and haven't made anything out of it, is an International Cookbook that gives history of the different areas of cooking, glossery of terms specific to that region and the different ingredients specific for those recipes.

My favorite cookbook is this old Cajun cookbook my hubby's grandmother gave me from the 60s. The cover is falling off so I can't even tell you the name, but besides the food being excellent, it's also a family heirloom! Thank you for doing this!

My favorite thing to cook? Chicken Parmesan and Fettucinni Alfredo. Both are so easy, but impressive. One of my favorite cookbooks is BHG. It's just got a lot of recipes that make really great jumping off points to get creative in the kitchen!
