One for you and (maybe) one for me

It’s that time of year again. Time for my blogiversary celebration! I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for almost 3 years now! Last year I had two giveaways to celebrate my second blogiversary, so it only makes sense that this year, I’ll have 3 giveaways leading up to my 3rd blogiversary, which is coming up on August 28.

All three giveaways will be a similar format. Each week I’ll post of list of kitchen related items that I either already have and love or that I’ve been wanting.

When you enter into the giveaway, you’ll let me know which item off the list you’d like to have. If the winner has picked something that I want, I’ll get one for you and one for me. If it’s something I already have, then I’ll just get one for you. How fun is that!

For the first giveaway, I’ve got a list of cookbooks. Some of these are my go-to cookbooks that I love to sit down with when I need some inspiration. Others are cookbooks that are on my list. Here’s the list in no particular order:

Donuts from William Sonoma

Baking Illustrated from Cooks Illustrated

Baking from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan

Martha Stewart’s Cookies

Good Eats: The Early Years by Alton Brown

Good Eats 2: The Middle Years by Alton Brown (pre-order)

Cake Pops by Bakerella (pre-order)

Some rules:
– Enter by midnight (EST) Friday, August 13
– One lucky winner will be chosen at random
– Open to US mailing addresses only

To enter, leave a comment answering:
– Which of these cookbooks would you like to win?

– If you’d like to receive a second entry, go to my Facebook page and leave me a comment with the name of your favorite cookbook.

    My last huge successful meal is the crown roast from Bon Apetite magazine. I almost canceled making it when I found out how much it cost, but ended up making it anyway. I’m glad I did, everybody loved it!

    My last hugely successful meal was sundried tomato and artichoke stuffed chicken breasts for 60you people! I have never cooked for that many people at once but with the help of my Mom we pulled it off! 🙂

    I’d have to say my Christmas Eve meal. Yummy pork tenderloin, baked cauliflower and my grandma’s spinach that was all on the table within 20 minutes of my planned dinner time. I’d call that a success!

    The last hugely successful meal I executed was actually a cookie swap party. I asked people who RSVP’d to bring only a dozen cookies. Everyone brought so much more and brought snacks, too. I was so worried there wouldn’t be enough, I made too much just in case. Instead I had to have one guest make sure no one left without a good supply. And we helped each other set up trays for relatives in nursing homes, nursing home staff.

    The spirit of the holidays was incredible and brought a bunch of strangers so much closer. (We’re all snowbirds in a campground in Mississippi)

    I made slow roasted pork chops with apples and onions, scalloped potatoes and I baked Italian bread. So simple yet delicious!

    I am a vegetarian, but I made Christmas dinner for our family and successfully made the ham. Everyone loved it, thank goodness! 🙂
