September Cookbook Giveaway


Hey kids! It's time for another monthly book giveaway at the Crispy Cook. Last month I rummaged through the cookbook shelves and offered up a copy of "Light and Spicy" by Barbara Gibbons, featuring some pretty tasty and healthy offerings, including a delicious-sound Mojo Sauce which I have yet to alchemize from a bookmarked recipe to a delight for the table. Maybe this month. Anyway, Paula at HookandYarn is the lucky winner and has an interesting blog to check out if you like gardening, crocheting and fiber arts. Congratulations Paula!

For this month's cookbook giveaway I thought I'd offer an autumnal book, and "The Goodness of Nuts and Seeds" by John Midgley (NY: Random House, 1993) seems like the perfect choice. This book is packed with nuttiness and has some tantalizing recipes, from the intriguing Blue Cheese, Celery & Hazelnut Soup to Coconut Curried Noodles with Vegetables to Tarator (a Turkish walnut-garlic sauce).

To enter the cookbook giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment after this post by midnight, September 30 (Eastern Standard Time) and I will randomly select a winner from the entries after that. Good luck to everyone!

Blue Cheese, Celery & Hazelnut Soup? Yes, please!

Sam's Lackey said...

How cool that you give away books! :-) This guy sounds like he was ahead of his time advocating nuts back in 93

totally count me in! I live on nuts and seeds.

In a household that contains one vegan and one gluten-free vegetarian, I know we really need to get cracking on our nuts and seeds recipes. I just keep putting it off because it's so unfamiliar! I am going to check this book out from the library right away.

It's so awesome that you give away cookbooks! It's so awesome that you own a bookstore, period.

Nuts for something other than muffins or chocolate (or straight to the mouth) would be really great.
