Books That Make Us Hungry: Happy Haulidays from Chronicle Books Giveaway!
Yes, readers, the holidays are upon us soon, and Chronicle Books, a real favorite of ours here at Life Told in Recipes, is having a lovely little contest where we can all win. Here's how it works. We create a list of books we would love to win (see below). Then you just comment on the books and why you'd like to be a winner. Then on Dec. 13 Chronicle picks a winning blog AND one reader from that blog who has commented. We both then get a happy shipment of the books on this list.
How great is that!!!! Could it be any simpler??? This is the proverbial win-win for us all so spread the word to your friends etc.
Without further ado our list of top faves:
Cake Pops by Bakerella (yes we already did one giveaway of this book but we had so many interested readers, that we would love to spread the love here some more)
Farmers' Market Desserts by Jennie Schacht (the more dessert cookbooks the better, we say)
Whoopie Pies by Sarah Billingsley and Amy Treadwell (ditto to dessert cookbook comment)
Savory Baking Pastries by Mary Cech and Noel Barnhurst (clearly a baking theme is emerging here)
Cupcake Kit by Elinor Kilvan (because the more cupcakes in the world, the better for us all)
The Big Book of Appetizers by Meridith Deeds and Carla Snyder (who doesn't love throwing a dinner party with lots of great appetizers?)
Delicious Dips AND Skinny Dips by Diane Morgan (we could go low or high-fat if we had both of these wonderful books)
Soup's On by Leslie Jonah and Frank Frankeny (nothing is better for warming the heart on a wintry day than homemade soup)
At Home with Friends by Michele Adams, Gia Russo and Victorial Peisor (tips for fab entertaining)
Blackbird Bakery's Gluten Free Baking by Karen Morgan (we're curious about this and what better way to try out the idea)
Time for Dinner by Pilar Guzman, Alanna Stang and Jenny Rosentrach (everything every busy parent needs to know to put quick, healthy meals on the table seven days a week)
Commonsense Kitchen: 500 Recipes Plus Lessons for a Hand-crafted Life by Tom Hudgens (appeals to our obsessive recipe collection natures)
Latin Grill: Sultry and Simple Food for Red Hot Dinners and Parties by Rafael Palomino, Arlen Gargagliano and Dan Goldberg (who doesn't love spicy food?)
Love in Spoonfuls: Fast and EAsy Ways to Make Nutritious Food for Your Baby (The Divine Miss M deserves this!)
Book of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks by Bethany Keeley (one of us is a grammar freak)
Mom's One-Line a Day: 5-Year Memory Book (one of us is a new mom who STILL talks about how her mother, the other one of us, didn't do a baby book about her; this is the revenge gift)
Baby Face Nesting Blocks (another gift for the Divine Miss M)
and a few Moleskins planners and notebooks because they are the coolest books ever for keeping track of life's stuff.
So that's it. We want to win because we want YOU to win! So comment below and spread the word.....
Happy Haulidays to all!
