I have a lovely relationship with a few different publishing houses and I am so thrilled when they send me newly released cookbooks. I was looking at my shelves the other day and realized they’re positively bursting, though…I really have too many cookbooks right now. So I’ve decided to pass some of them on to a lucky reader; I’ll also give that reader a signed copy of my new book!
The copy of my book is brand new, of course, and most of the other books are very new, as well (about half have not been used at all). A couple are gently used and/or have a little tear of the dust jacket near the bottom of the spine. The Food52 Cookbook is a few years old: I am giving it away because I have an extra copy.
So, there you go: one of you will win all 10 of these books! So that I don’t incur crazy shipping charges, this giveaway is only open to my readers in the USA. The Rafflecopter widget will be open for entries until December 23, 2013 at 12:00 EST. I won’t be able to ship the books in time for Christmas but I will get them out to the winner asap.
Holy cow you guys. People are reading my book and I still can’t believe it. I don’t know what I expected, but I certainly did not expect the first printing of the book to sell out so fast. It was a small print run, but still…not what I expected. Just five days after the release, there were no more copies left on Amazon.com. None. Again…I can’t believe it.
So many people talked up the book the first week it was out and I am so grateful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has posted on Facebook, Instagram, twitter, etc…you’re all so awesome! I also want to give a special shout out to the following folks:
I adore making homemade gifts for family and friends during the holiday season. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites in this post…I also have a fabulous giveaway to share with you.
For gift giving, homemade candies are always a hit and they keep really well…the same can be said of my body scrubs and bath salts. And of course, cookies and granola make yummy gifts, too. I personally like to pack up samples of a few different things in little boxes or glass jars and give folks a small bag of my goodies. Hanukkah was very early this year so I’ve missed the boat on that, but I will probably be sharing a few more homemade gift ideas here in the weeks to come so look out for those.
These marshmallows are SO good. I’ve been mini-fying them and putting them in hot cocoa. Yum.
Now, because not everyone has the time or desire to do the homemade gift thing, I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you an awesome giveaway! It’s for a $500 amazon.com gift card. You can use it to buy anything you want or need…you can keep what you buy or give it away! You will find the details about the giveaway, and the widget for entering, below.
This giveaway will be open from today (Friday December 6th, 2013) through Wednesday December 11th 2013 at 11:59pm EST. You must be 18 years old to enter and you must live in the USA. One winner will receive a $500 gift card to Amazon.
