You know I’m addicted to Pinterest, right?
You know I have 15 Boards dedicated to food and drink, right?
You know I stalk food blogs, right?
Well, I’m combining my love of Pinterest, food blog stalking, baking and giving stuff to people into one big cray-cray giveaway. Just because.
I’m giving away NINE cookbooks written by some very talented food bloggers!
Congratulations to all the ladies for getting published – and just to think, not so long ago, you thought, I think I’ll just start a blog and share some recipes. Sort of mind-blowing.
So here are the super duper awesome food bloggers/ published authors who have generously agreed to sponsor one copy each of their books for the giveaway. You should absolutely go visit their blogs and check out their yummy recipes.
In no particular order…..
The most repinned recipe on my Pinterest board is a Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken (142 times!) that I found on Jessica of The Novice Chef‘s blog. It is DELICIOUS. And so is her new cookbook, Mini Donuts: 100 Bite-Sized Donut Recipes to Sweeten Your ‘Hole’ Day. Can you imagine if you just tried one donut recipe every week? How awesome would your days be? I love, love, love this cookbook.
Jenny Flake, author of The Picky Palate Cookbook offers 128 delicious and crowd-pleasing recipes, which promises to entice even the pickiest eaters to chow down. Jenny writes the popular blog, Picky Palate, a go-to resource for parents who need some easy, fast recipes for their picky eaters. I NEED this cookbook, I’m the mother to the world’s pickiest eater.
Jeanne of Art Of Gluten-Free Baking has been gluten-free baking since 2000, when the birth of her daughter triggered her gluten-intolerance. Her daughter has a life-threatening allergy to peanut and is sensitive to soy. Her husband reacts to almonds and lemons. Yet, this talented lady is able to come up with meal after meal of yummy delicious food, and is now sharing over 60 recipes of gorgeous gluten-free desserts for the holidays in her new book, Gluten-Free Baking For The Holidays.
Alana of Eating From The Ground Up, is a mother of two, and started her blog in 2008 when she realized, while working at a farmer’s market, that she wanted to chronicle her love of recipes and giving out advice on what to do with ingredients like escarole and garlic snapes. Over the last few years, Alana started making basic food items that she previously thought she could only get at the supermarket, and lo and behold, has turned that knowledge into her first book, Homemade Pantry: 101 Foods You Can Stop Buying & Start Making. I absolutely love the concept of this book, as I’ve started making a lot of food from scratch.
Gretchen of Kumquat, is a registered dietician, recipe tester and food stylist. Is that not a perfect combination for a cookbook author? Several years ago, Gretchen battled some health issues and decided to stop eating gluten, and immediately felt better. And now, she has a book, Fast & Simple Gluten-Free, that has 100+ delicious gluten-free recipes for the family that you can make in half an hour or less!
I met Faith through Bonbon Break, just as she was launching her book, An Edible Mosaic (she writes a blog of the same name). The cookbook is packed with over 100 Middle Eastern recipes with a focus mainly on dishes from the Levant (i.e., Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine). The recipes are authentic Middle Eastern, mostly taught to Faith by her my mother-in-law, but Faith has streamlined them slightly, to adapt to the way we cook today, with unique ingredients demystified and cooking techniques that anyone can follow. I love, love, love this book.
Marisa of Food in Jars, has been canning and preserving since 2006. I’ve never canned food but have always been fascinated, so her cookbook, Food In Jars: Preserving In Small Batches Year Round is perfect. Marisa also teaches canning classes, how cool is that? Jam anyone?
Sitting down together as a family for dinner is one of my favorite memories of my childhood. Dinner: A Love Story is a book filled with 120 recipes and is for anyone reaching a life milestone – just moving in together, just married, just had children – the idea is to get together, sit down and eat. Jenny’s blog, Dinner: A Love Story is a great inspiration for parents fighting to get your wits together to put together a meal on the table for the family, day in, day out.
I’m very good at eating cookies, but not so much at decorating, so I am absolutely in awe of Bridget of Bake at 350. Her cookies are almost too gorgeous to be eaten. For those of us who are cookie decorating novices, her book Decorating Cookies is a must-have. I think this will also make a great gift for Christmas! There are more than 60 delicious cookie-designs in the book for all occasions. Yum!
There is something for everyone here, and so many chances to win, so what are you waiting for? (I did a spontaneous poll a couple of hours before this post and found that many did not like the various ways they have to follow people and so on – well, this giveaway doesn’t require you to, but if you want your chances of winning to increase, then you do have to like and follow. But it’s not mandatory. Up. To. You.)
Enter the Food Obsessed Cray-Cray Giveaway here!
