October 15th, 2012 | 19 Comments »

Sticks and Stews. That’s the theme this week.

Once again, here are the details on our Monday Fun Day cookbook giveaway. If this is your first venture to this site, welcome!
I’ve got two cool books for you this week, but watch out! Next week is EPIC!!

Congrats to our winners from last week!!
Jen Hjelle- Pizza & Flatbread in 5 Minutes
Val Stanley-  Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes
Elle Strike- Desserts in Jars 

First, let’s go over the rules once more so everyone knows what’s going on.


~~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.

All right. Ready??

ON A STICK! by Matt Armendariz

I was given a copy of this to review and this is one fun book, folks. Party perfect recipes for entertaining, or just making every day meals that much more fun. Matt is the talent behind the blog Matt Bites, and is a renowned food photographer. This book is gorgeous, small, simple to use and everything goes on a stick. Kids will love it. Adults will squeal. Love to entertain? This one’s for you.

REAL STEW by Clifford Wright

 Do you love a good stew? Crave thick chowders, chilis and gumbo so hearty that a fork will stand up in them?
This book has it all; a dizzying array of soups, stews and the like from all over the world. You’ve heard of some, but likely not all of them, and therein lies the fun of this book. From the simple to the complex, you can’t find a more comprehensive guide to everything that simmers in a pot. With the impending winter, this book will become a favorite of yours.
{{DISCLAIMER: Your book will have a different cover than the one shown above, but it’s exactly the same.}}

    I’d go with Real Stew. Not a “on-a-stick” type person.

    On a Stick! – When I was 10 I dreamed of owning a Cookies-On-A-Stick business. I even made samples of the product and gave them to my neighbors. One of my dad’s buddies said, “That cookie was delicious but I got a splinter, can I get a refund?” I knew he was joking but I was still mortified!

  7. I’ve liked you on Facebook!

  8. I would love Real Stew! My husband and I have been all about soups and stews lately, and they’re nice because they’re so economical!

    Thanks for this opportunity 🙂
