Weekend Cooking and Day Two of My Blog Anniversary - a Cookbook Giveaway!


Package One - Connie
Package Two - KindleJoy

Thank you everyone for entering!  If you didn't win, don't fret! Your names will go in for the Grand Prize Drawing too!
(Winners chosen using Random.org)

I really enjoy participating in the Weekend Cooking meme, sponsored by Beth over at Beth Fish Reads, and thought today I would tie in my weeklong Blog Anniversary Celebration with a little bit of cooking!

I have collected cookbooks since I was a young bride, nearly 30 years ago. One of my most favorite cookbooks is "The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes From An Accidential Country Girl" by Ree Drummond.

This sassy Oklahoma gal takes some of the best of comfort foods and presents them in a new and lively way that brings a smile to the face of foodies everywhere! And this cookbook is so much more than a book full of recipes - it is a "come on in and sit down and visit a while" book where you meet Drummond's family, learn about their Oklahoma lifestyle, and learn how to make soul-satisfying, tummy-loving dishes that your family will adore.

Drummond includes full-color, eye-popping photographs for her step-by-step instructions for such dishes as Cinnamon Rolls, Chicken Fried Steak and Gravy, and more.  Trust me, it will set your taste buds to watering just reading this charming book!


My friends at William Morrow/Harper Collins have graciously donated a copy of Ree Drummond's book, plus three others for me to giveaway during my blog's 3rd Anniversary Celebration.  So, I have packaged them into two prizes for two lucky winners to choose from!

Package One:

"The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes From An Accidential Country Girl" by Ree Drummond and "Food Network Star: The Official Guide To America's Hottest Food Show"

Package Two:

"Salad As A Meal: Healthy Main-Dish Salads for Every Season" by Patricia Wells and "The New Brooklyn Cookbook: Recipes and Stories From 31 Restaurants That Put Brooklyn On The Culinary Map" by Melissa and Brendan Vaughn


Simply leave your name, your email address and which package you would like to win!  Easy peasy!  I will draw the two winning names on Sunday! 

Also, all entries will go into the drawing for the Grand Prize - A NOOK Simple Touch - donated by Avon Books!  The Drawing for the NOOK will be next Saturday, Sept. 10th.

Good Luck to Everyone!!

Enjoy the weekend, my friends, and as always ...Happy Reading!!!

Oh, so hard to choose. I'll go for Package 2 because I've been on a multi-year quest to convince myself that salad is my favorite food.

Thank you so much for picking me as a winner! Never ever won anything on a blog before. There is obviously a first time for everything :D
I just love salads and eager to try out new, exciting recipes!
A nice Sunday evening to you and your blog followers!

Cinnamon rolls as comfort food, I am all for that. One of my all time favourites, but I have not thought of it in this way. My loss I guess.

group 2 if you are including Canadians in the contest.
