Cookbook Giveaway!

I was very excited when someone from Snubbr (a site that you can go to for product recommendations) contacted me and asked if I wanted to do a cookbook giveaway on my blog. How could I turn down the opportunity for one of you to win a cookbook? All you have to do is comment on this post and tell me what cookbook you want to win (that's less than $30) and why you want that cookbook.

The contest closes Friday May 28, at which point Snubbr will pick the winner and send them their cookbook. Make sure to include your email address or a way of contacting you. This contest is open to people in Canada and the US. I'm looking forward to seeing what cookbook people will choose!

Lexi said...

I would definitely have to say Moosewood Low Fat Favorites. I have heard SO many good things about that book, and the recipes sound both fun and delicious :) I also love that many of the cookbooks's recipes are vegetarian or vegan. As an aspiring vegan, it would make meals a lot easier!

Thanks :)

Jenn @ BentoForKidlet said...

I would love to win Hello, Cupcake! I have been wanting that cookbook for quite some time now. It seems like I am always making cupcakes for some school or extracurricular activity for my son and the ideas in this book are amazing!

Magi said...

I've been asking for the Le Halles cookbook by Anthony Bourdain for what seems like FOREVER. I love him. I've read all of his books except the cookbook....it just seems wrong.

Nora said...

I'd really love a cop of Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day - simply because i'm trying to become a better baker!

Topher said...

I'd love to get the Sweet Melissa Baking Book. I am a huge baker. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

Robin said...

I'd love to have The Cake Book. After making the Cinnamon Swirl Buttermilk Pound Cake from your website, I must have this book.

smalltownoven said...

I'm all for the Momofuku cookbook!!

Becca said...

Amazing giveaway! I am also drooling for Bittman's How to Cook Everything.

Janetom said...

The Flavor Bible, the right combination of ingredients can make or break a dish, this book would help me cook fabulous combinations of flavorful dishes.

Sondi said...

Erin Mckenna's Babycakes looks amazing!

Sherri said...

I've been wanting to Donna Hay's Modern Classics 1. I have MC#2 and love it!

EvilDucky77 said...

I would love to have the Momofuku cookbook that everyone is raving about! :)

David said...

Oh, that would have to be Adam Perry Lang's "BBQ 25:'. i've heard it's fantastic guide to everything grill related, and is something i really want to check out.

it's his take on his '25 essential' grilling recipes, getting everythign possible out of a cut of meat, and that's something we can all aspire to.

Connie said...

The Cake Bible: Rose Levy Beranbaum

I have been working my way through the Pie and Pastry Bible for some time now, and have used some of the recipes off your site, Chocolate Beet Cake, Creamy Coconut Cake,
and really think that this would round out my pastry books. I would like to someday be a well rounded chef, in experience, not in my actual stature ( I already am!)

JenB said...

Oh my what a hard question!

Last time I was at the bookstore I was checking out this one: The Best of Cooking Light Everyday Favorites: Over 500 of Our All-Time Greatest Recipes.

I'm in need of some new 'everyday' type cookbooks. Most of mine are more for special occassions.

dbenwood said...

This is a tough one, but I would love to have Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, my daughter has it and has enjoyed every recipe so far. Also, I love Jamie Oliver!!

Sara said...

Very cool giveaway! I would love to win All Cakes Considered by Melissa Grey. I love the idea of all the stories going with the different cakes, and I've just been getting into listening to NPR, so I would love to learn some of the cakes from this book!

Shannalise said...

I guess this is a chance to recommend one of my favorites The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia by Rebecca Wood. Its not filled with recipes but it does have some and gives a lot of ideas and information on how to prepare a variety of foods. I borrowed a copy from a freind, but have to give it back soon.

jennoreilly said...

oooh, by far 'the barefoot contessa cookbook' by ina garten! I have barefoot in paris and everything is simply mouthwatering!

Dana said...

There are so many! Right now, I'd have to say The SoNo Baking Company Cookbook by John Barricelli. I love to bake and I keep reading about this one. It sounds like one I would love.

Liana said...

I would by far want to win The Flavor Bible. My mother seems to have an innate sense of spices and flavors, and what works well. I've been trying to acquire for ages, and having just completed my freshman year in college, I've learned it's an invaluable skill. I don't just want to learn new recipes, but also understand how recipes operate, hopefully so I'd be able to create my own.

THANKS!

Leslie said...

sky high cakes!! everything i've ever seen from there on food blogs is absolutely beautiful and the blogger always RAVES about it--i want it because it's unique--you can't just look online for the recipes
my email is brandydreamz@insightbb.com

grace said...

i've heard really good things about 'all cakes considered' by melissa grey. apparently, the recipes rock and the commentary is hilarious and almost as enjoyable as eating the goodies created by those aforementioned rockin' recipes. great giveaway!

kirsten said...

ooo...I would love to get my hands on the The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread. I love eating it...why not make it :P

Katrina said...

I've had Bakewise on my list for a while, that or Martha Stewart's Cookie Book.

Caroline said...

I'd love The Gourmet Cookbook, because it has so many recipes that I'd love to try.

Rachel Baker said...

I've really been lusting after a copy of Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day, because I've always been very interested in making my own yeast breads. Many people reject it as unecessary since you can easily buy bread in a store or use a breadmaker, but I think it would be so satisfying (and delicious!) to make your own!

How to Cook Without a Book: Recipes and Techniques Every Cook Should Know by Heart by Pam Anderson

I love recipes, and I've created some amazing things from them, but I would love to learn the techniques (and therefore gain the confidence) to be able to create my own, original dishes.

I would love Betty Crocker's Best Bread Machine Cookbook!

Chantelle said...

I'd like to get

Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites: Flavorful Recipes for Healthful Meals

cause it sounds good!

Cheryl said...

I have been drooling over Thomas Kellers Ad Hoc at Home cookbook. I have seen a recipe or two from this cookbook online and just can say, if those two were that amazing, how is the rest of the book? I definitely want to find out.

Rebekah said...

I have been lusting after the Rebar Modern Food Cookbook. I heard about it here on your blog, and I am dying to try some of the awesome vegetarian recipes.

It is summer produce time I am a part of a CSA and I am recieving fruits and vegtables that I have no idea what to do with. I feel like this book would be a great tool.

Robb & Nancy said...

I think I'd go with Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar by Isa Moskowitz

wdziedzic said...

Vegan Cupakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero is a cookbook I have been lusting after since I became vegan a few months ago!! I would LOVE to show everyone that vegan cupcakes can be delicious!

Andrea said...

I've been wanting to get the cookbook "Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites" for a while now. I have borrowed my mom's cookbooks for a while, but now she's moved across the country and I can't take advantage of that anymore! The primary reason I would like the cookbook is so that I can try cooking more low-fat alternatives to my daily meals. My dad just got diagnosed with adult-onset diabetes, so I really want to lose some weight and improve my health to lower my own risk... The Moosewood cookbooks are all really well-written and have some lovely recipes, so I'm hoping this one does too!

Anna said...

'1,000 vegan recipes'by Robin Robertson would be my choice. i am trying to build my vegan cookbook selection. This seems perfect because it has recipes covering a little bit of everything!

Cookie baker Lynn said...

Wow, it's dangerous reading through the comments because I'm finding so many new cookbooks to add to my wishlist. Currently, the top of my wishlist is
Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day. It covers a large variety of yeasted treats and shows how to make them without the usual tedious processes of traditional baking.

Patricia Scarpin said...

"Rustic Fruit Desserts: Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More", by Cory Schreiber - I'm looking for more fruit based desserts and this seems to be packet with homey, comforting ones!

fresh365 said...

Oh man, how to choose? I have a list a mile long! World Vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey is at the top though.

Kim said...

I'm a little afraid of baking with yeast even though I've made a few things with it so I would just like to get a little more comfortable with baking with it more. I've read that the perfect book to get for that reason would be Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking. I've read so many great reviews about it.

Jane said...

I would like The New Moosewood Cookbook. I have just become vegetarian, for sustainability and health reasons. Everything I've had from the Moosewood Cookbooks has been fabulous, and the recipes are easy to follow. Great education in them too. It would be the first vegetarian cookbook to my collection. Great jump start to cooking new and wonderfully.

Neomi said...

Hands down, David Leibovitz's book Ripe for Dessert or even his new book Ready for Dessert. I've always been a bit afraid of making dessert (cookies was were it was at) but his friendly style of recipe writing helped me get over some of that fear and make some fancier cakes. (I took his book out of the library once and tried a few of the recipes and they were so so good.) I'd love to own one of his books.

nfmgirl said...

I've wanted Quick-Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson. I'm trying to learn new vegetarian recipes, and want quick options for weekdays. Thank you!

karebear said...

I think Erin McKenna's "BabyCakes: Vegan, (Mostly) Gluten-Free, and (Mostly) Sugar-Free Recipes from New York's Most Talked-About Bakery" looks great; i absolutely love cupcakes & this one has great reviews!

Erin said...

I've been dying for Vegan Yum Yum by Lauren Ulm since it was released!
I'd like to learn more special vegan recipes, right now i'm kind of stuck in the basic vegan meals, but from what i've seen on her blog she has tons of interesting innovative vegan recipes!

I'd love a copy of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. I have a collection of his books but am missing this one.

Cindy Mushet's THE ART AND SOUL OF BAKING seems to be a pastry class in book form, with everything you need to know and all the little thing you didn't know you needed to know about baking. She includes tips that never seem to show up in recipe books that come only from years of experience. I stand somewhere in-between a dabbler and an experienced baker; I want to grow in the craft, honing my skills, and I believe that this book would greatly help me in doing so.

Bitty's Book said...

I am already in love with "Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It: And Other Cooking Projects" by Karen Solomon. I hope everyone knows what they are getting for Christmas this year!

Kristian and said...

i would love to win the Rebar cookbook, i lent it to my sister and she put it outside her front door for me to pick up and someone took it! I miss this book so much, i made the lentil soup tonight from your blog (thank you) but i use it all the time and would love to replace it. Thank you - fingers crossed!

saveur said...

I would love to win Classic Turkish Cooking by Ghillie Basan and Jonathan Basan but I think it is out-of-print.

As a substitute, but completely unrelated, I'd love to win The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook.

Christine said...

wooo hooo! always love a new cookbook-- How about Little Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse. Love, love, love your blog. thanks!

Two Buck Chuck said...

I would love The Moro Cookbook. I really want to learn about Spanish cooking and heard great things about this one. My email is shoshana.seidman@gmail.com. Thanks!!

Connie said...

That Moro Cookbook was the first one I bought after culinary school...Phenomenal!

Dawn said...

How Fun! It would definitely be Moosewood's Simple Suppers. I keep checking and re-checking this out of the library and can't get enough of it!! I'll keep my fingers crossed! :)

dominique marie jeanne said...

Awesome!! What a great giveaway, the book Vegan with a Vengeance would be an amazing win...because i don't already own it, and the recipes posted on eat me, delicious all sound totally delicious (not to be too redundant).

thanks so much for hosting this!!

dominique (dominique.frgt@gmail.com)

Ruchika said...

I would love to win The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Gir. I follow your blog along with hers. Both inspire me to be creative in the kitchen!

Josette said...

WHAT: Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas

WHY:
The recipes take the reader through the day, from luscious breakfast smoothies and crunchy granolas, filling soups, light salads and snacks to the more substantial dishes of a main meal. Expanding on the beans and lentils of traditional vegetarian cuisine, she draws on inspiration from regional and international cuisine, from simple stir fries like the Hearty Seitan "Buddist's Delight" to Pasta with Enlightened Alfredo Sauce.

SOUNDS OH SO EAT ME, DELICIOUS!

Great giveaway! The Enchanted Broccoli Forrest by Mollie Katzen. One I'd like to add to my collection.
reneeandsteve@eastlink.ca
Thanks!

Janice said...

I would love to have a copy of Heidi Swanson's "Super Natural Cooking"--I don't have anything like it in my collection yet.

Thanks so much for this fun opportunity!

saveur said...

I realized I didn't say WHY I wanted my books, so sorry for a double-post:

I would love to win Classic Turkish Cooking by Ghillie Basan and Jonathan Basan but I think it is out-of-print. I just came back back a trip to Turkey and this book was recommended by a Turkish chef. Unfortunately I can't seem to find it myself!

As a substitute, but completely unrelated, I'd love to win The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook. I find they have very reliable recipes and this is a very comprehensive collection.

kg said...

great giveaway. i would love Kim Boyce's new book "Good to the Grain". I've seen it on a few blogs and i can't wait to continue experimenting with more whole grain flours!

ps congratulations on your new blog endeavour

Erin said...

I am an avid baker and cook. I also have a modest obsession with cookbooks. I love reading them and test driving them from the library. I recently became familiar with Jim Lahey's work and his bread. As a novice bread maker I am very interested in his technique and have fallen for his book "My Bread". I would love to add this book to my collection and continue to sample his recipes without racking up a fine on my VPL library card!

spike said...

Actually, Secrets of a Jewish Baker: Recipes for 125 Breads from Around the World sounds great, because I could follow along with your blog & because bread making has always eluded me.

nomspot.com said...

I would love to own "Hello, Cupcake!" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. :)

moon_serenity@msn.com

Taylor said...

Hmmm this is a tough one...I would pick How to Cook Everything because that's what I need to know!

Melissa said...

I'd love to get one of the Moosewood Cookbooks! omydarlingblog(at)gmail(dot)com

Lynn said...

I've had John Besh's My New Orleans: The Cookbook in my Amazon shopping cart for months now. Love him, love his restaurants & I've heard great things about the cookbook.
