MY FIRST GIVEAWAY! THE RECIPE CLUB: A TALE OF FOOD AND FRIENDSHIP


I'm very excited to be hosting my first Giveaway! Caitlin Price of FSB Associates is presenting me with a copy of The Recipe Club: A Tale of Food and Friendship. I read an excerpt and I wanted more so I knew that it would be a delight to read.

The website for The Recipe Club: A Tale of Food and Friendship describes the book as a “novel cookbook,” a deliciously funny, touching story of friendship, loss, and the ties that bind—with more than 80 recipes that keep the plot cooking. Compellingly readable, this heartfelt story celebrates the resilience and power of women’s friendships. It’s a charming pastiche of e-mails, hand-written childhood letters, third-person narration, photographs, illustration, and more than 80 delicious recipes.

Read an excerpt from THE RECIPE CLUB: A TALE OF FOOD AND FRIENDSHIP and see for yourself.

So let's make this fun... to enter, click on comments below and:
  1. Leave a comment - let me know the name of your favorite recipe and where it came from. Be prepared to give the entire recipe if asked. The holidays are coming and everybody always wants something new!
  2. Leave another entry if you're a follower (or become a follower and tell me.)
  3. Blog about the contest and leave me a link in a third comment. (sidebars are OK).
  4. No PO Boxes, US residents only. (sorry non-US residents)
  5. One of your entries (or your blog profile) must have an email address so I can contact you.

Contest ends October 15th. If I cannot contact the selected winner, I will choose again.

One of my favorite Christmas recipes is Nanaimo Bars. I've made them for years and years. Imagine my delight when I was able to visit the town of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. We stopped at a little diner. I remember the meal was delicious and for dessert we had a nanaimo bar from the very town where the recipe originated.

My favorite recipe, gosh that's hard-last winter it was cabbage soup, which I followed with gingerbread with lemon curd. Every once in a while I cook but most often I just throw something together so me and my husband don't starve LOL

My mom makes a really great thing called Lemon herb chicken ring. It's not really holidayish....but she makes it for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter...so I think of it as a holiday recipe! It so good straight from the oven or cold the next day from the fridge! Thanks for the chance! bekki1820cb@gmail.com

Favorite recipe-raspberry scones from Babycakes-I make them every 10 days-they only last 2 days in our house-so I need to slow down the eating somehow.

One of my favorites is a Black Bean Salsa recipe that I think I may have gotten from Southern Living. I'd have to look at the recipe card to know for sure. But I take it every year to our family reunion. Great veggie dinner!
