monday fun day….. the second (and local version)

October 8th, 2012 | 62 Comments »

Rapid fire, wasn’t it? Whew….. that first giveaway went quickly.

{{Congratulations to Kelli Abrahamian who won the Canning cookbook,
and to Liz Paul who won the Thanksgiving cookbook!}}

Thanks for entering, everyone!!


But first, let me repeat the details, ok? Some of you may not have been here last week.


~~Each week in October, starting on Monday, I will put up a post offering cookbooks to give away.
BUT YOU’LL HAVE TO ACT FAST! Each cookbook offer will be up for only FIVE DAYS. 

~~At the end of the day on Friday, each week, I’ll close out the current giveaway, choose the winner and notify them quick as a wink. So in order to be eligible- YOU MUST leave comments on these posts that contain your contact information.
Don’t go through all the work of commenting without that!

~~If you are chosen as the cookbook winner, you will be asked to provide a mailing address so I can send you your book.
If you’re local, I’d be happy to meet up with you to hand you your winning cookbook in person!

Unfortunately, given the expense of mailing books, I have to limit these giveaways to US residents only.

Ok. Now…. Part Two. These are the big guns, folks. Local authors. Signed books. Here we go!!

DESSERTS IN JARS by Shaina Olmanson

It’s entirely possible that everyone has this cookbook by now, but then again, maybe not. Shaina is a Minnesota blogger, cooking up delicious and healthy fare for her four children at Food for my Family. She’s one of the hardest working bloggers I know, and on top of all her commitments, she created this beautiful dessert cookbook. I was blessed to receive a copy of this book, signed by Shaina herself and am excited to give it away as part of Monday Fun Day. You’ll love the photos, the simple and delicious recipes and if you’re like me, the section of Gifts in Jars will delight you.

HEALTHY BREAD IN 5 MINUTES by Zoë Francois and Jeff Hertzberg

Zoë and Jeff’s quick dough method has revolutionized home bread baking. You make a big batch of dough, keep it in the fridge and use it as needed to make lovely, fragrant and crusty homemade bread. This hard-copy book is full of healthier options for your daily bread, all with the same, easy 5-minute method. Wouldn’t YOU love to have fresh baked bread every day??

ARTISAN PIZZA AND FLATBREAD in 5 MINUTES A DAY by Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg

An entire book of gourmet pizzas, flatbreads and other thin, crusty delights, utilizing the same quick 5-minute dough method designed by Zoë and Jeff. The recipes are mouth-watering and delicious, and the method couldn’t be easier. I was fortunate to attend a local event with Zoë and watch her demonstrate the techniques involved, spin and twist a disc of pizza dough in the air and make one of the best pizzas I’ve eaten recently. I received this signed hard copy as a participant in the event. Win this cookbook, and you’ll be flipping spinning pizza dough over your head in no time!!
