December Cookbook Giveaway


For the November Cookbook Giveaway, I offered a copy of "John Sarich at Chateau Ste. Michelle: For Cooks Who Love Wine", by John Sarich and Lori McKean (Seattle: Sasquatch Books, 1997). The lucky winner is the very first entrant, Vicki, author of the blog Work in Progress which chronicles her kitchen adventures and some cool book reviews as well. Congratulations Vicki!

For the December cookbook giveaway, the Crispy Cook prowled around the shelves over at our used bookstore, Old Saratoga Books, and came up with "Eating on the Run: Nutritious Eating-From Airline Meals to Microwave Zapping", by Evelyn Tribole (Champaign, IL: Leisure Press, 1992). I think it is an appropriate selection for this busy holiday month when we all could use a little extra help in cooking up quick and easy meals that don't skimp on nutrition. How do these recipes from the book sound? Tortilla Pinwheels, Strawberry Yogurt Frappe, Cobbette Salad and Spinach Cheese Pasta. The book has extensive chapters on planning and packing meals and lots of nutritional breakdowns.

As always, entries are made by leaving a comment after this post. Do so by midnight, December 31st, 2008 to be eligible to have this book sent to you courtesy of the Crispy Cook. Good luck to everyone!

Hi! I just followed your blog :) I didn't know you give away cookbooks, as we just recently "met" on GYO :) Am I qualified? I do not live in USA.

BTW, just finished La Cucina (in one reading! I am sort of in a rush as I just discovered this event near the deadline :) I know what I am going to cook for the event, still have to cook it though :)

Congrats Vicki: I'll get that book mailed to you and your chihuahua tomorrow.

Robin: Thanks for entering this book giveaway.

Ning: Thanks for stopping by. You and anyone anywhere in the world are eligible for this randomly generated contest. I have previously sent books to winners in Crete, Canada and Australia. Who knows, the Philippines might be next!
