Cookbook Giveaway!

I'm so excited about my Amazon gift card that I received from the Fairy Hobmother, and I want to share it with you guys too! So I'm hosting a giveaway where you can enter to win any cookbook you want (that's available to ship from Amazon.ca and is less than $40).

To enter, leave a comment (with your email, if you don't have a blog), tell me which cookbook you want, and tell me something random about yourself. This contest is only open to people living in Canada (sorry!) I will leave the contest open until 11:59pm PST on December 18.

***Contest closed. Genevieve won Appetite for Reduction!

You are so awesome, Ashley! Way to go for spreading the love. :)

I have been meaning to check out Enlightened Eating, which is probably what I'd get. :)

Or maybe a raw cookbook since I now have a dehydrator! Wahoo! :)

Beth said...

Hi! If I had to pick a cookbook it would be The Barefoot Contessa At Home. :-)

emily said...

How exciting! I'm a reader in Toronto, and I'm really excited for the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook. I had my 30th birthday cake from them (pistachio!) and it was one of the best cakes I've ever tasted.

Erica said...

Oooh! If I win I'd love "The Grit Cookbook: World-Wise, Down-Home Recipes [Paperback]" please :)

Random: I've visited your neck of the woods once, and it was lovely! Ate at Gorilla Food, climbed Grouse Mountain, and marveled at the friendly bus drivers who thanked me when I paid my fare. Here in Toronto, interactions with transit employees are...chilly at best unfortunately.

I've been mulling over this one: How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food for awhile. Sadly, I haven't had a chance to get a copy yet!

Congratulations on your AGC!

csbryant said...

I love cooking and have a biweekly breakfast potluck at my house. I would love to win: Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How To Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals!

Belladatura said...

Sooo many choices, but I still haven't gotten Veganomicon, so I'd love to get that!

Dee said...

Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi. Pure food pr0n. My dog loved the eggplant recipe from the cover.

Cameron said...

WHY? OH WHY IS IT LIMITED TO CANADA?!?!?!?!?

O Canada!

Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command...


Ruhlman's Twenty: 20 Techniques 100 Recipes A Cook's Manifesto


I....uh...play Dungeon and Dragons. With dice!

Debby said...

Hi, It is so generous of you to give something away, I think I would pick Jamie Oliver's new cookbook, something about meals in minutes?I was just staring at him, he is so cute!Random thing about me,I can make sock monkeys and I live in Calgary!

Glogirl said...

I would love to have "Taste of Home Winning Recipes, Vol. 2".
Something random about me is that I use to raise chickens with my sister when I was growing up.

edmontonjb said...

I would love the Taste of Home Baking cookbook.

Random: I cannot eat fries without ketchup but I don't like ketchup on any other food.

Joanne said...

Wish I was a Canadian! But I'll put in my two cents anyway...I'd want the Perfect Scoop!

Penny said...

The cookbook I'd love to have is Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie by Ken Haedrich. I LOVE to bake and the prettier the result the better- the ulimate compliment for me i someone telling me my cookies, cakes, etc are "too pretty to eat!"

Random fact about me: I met my husband at a science fiction convention. (And for the record, neither of us was "in uniform." LOL!)

Genevieve said...

Awesome giveaway! I have so many cookbooks on my list that I want, but I would choose Appetite for Reduction - since I know you recommend it!

kickpleat said...

Aw, you are too sweet! I'm totally jonesing for Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mo​uth Cookies by Alice Medrich cuz who doesn't love cookies?

mb said...

So generous!

I've had my eye on 'Peas and Thank You' as I love her blog and have read great things about the recipes -- even for non-vegans.

Random fact: I rescue pit bulls.

Always Behind said...

Thank you for sharing your gift card! I love your blog. The one cook book I've been longing for is called:
Everyday Harumi

Something random about me: I don't share my food. I'm quite a "Joey" in that aspect. If you've seen friends, you know what I mean :).

Thanks again! Hope I win!

Hannah said...

I would definitely take Supernatural Everyday.

Random factoid: I used to spell "took" as "toke." The worst part is that nobody corrected me until last year during my second year of university. Not my finest hour.

Andrea Zeng said...

The New Best Recipes by editors of Cook's Illustrated would make a wonderful holiday gift. A random fact about myself is that I try not to repeat recipes that I have made before, because there are 1000's of recipes out there to try that I have yet to.

Basht said...

I'd get The 30-Day Vegan Challenge. I've heard good things from twitter about it.

random: I can't sleep if the dishwasher is running... it makes sounds that make it seem like someone is fiddling with the lock on the front door.

Laurel Alanna McBrine said...

great idea! There are so many to choose from, but I am really liking the new book from Fresh restaurant. Random fact: I am having my first ever blog giveaway right now, a strawesome glass straw!

Ricki said...

Don't enter me in the giveaway, but just wanted to say how great this is! Thanks for hosting this, Ashley. And hope you have an amazing holiday yourself! :) xo

Cristina Favreau said...

I lost all my cookbooks in our move last year, so a new cookbook would be awesome to start my collection (again).

I would love "Everyday Happy Herbivore" by by Lindsay S. Nixon.

Cooking-related randomness: Give me any meal recipe and I can pretty much ace it. But I'll ruin even the simplest of cake recipes (especially the icing!).

Nsjacq said...

If I won I'd buy Everyday Happy Herbivore.
Random: i love cookbooks and food blogs and read them like novels. :).

AndreaP said...

This is so nice of you! I'd love the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. It seems like there are a lot of well loved recipes in there!

As for me - I have 3 kids under the age of 7. I'm giving away baskets of homemade goodies for Christmas this year. And I once went skydiving!

grace said...

okay, not living in canada, i can't enter...but everyone should want the nancy bagett cookbooks. she is incredible (and the books are so interesting to read!). good luck to those who are in it to win it! :)

Veronica said...
