Cookbook Giveaway!

I'm trying to clean out my bookshelf because it's more than overflowing with cookbooks!  And - you all get to benefit from this.  I'm giving away a few cookbooks that I don't quite have room for anymore - though they're all great cookbooks, they're just not quite my style of cooking or I've got too many similar cookbooks and I need the space! 

Here's the list of cookbooks I'm giving away:

The Mayo Clinic Williams-Sonoma Cookbook: Simple Solutions for Eating Well
Blog Aid: Recipes for Haiti
500 Cupcakes: The Only Cupcake Compendium You'll Ever Need
Seriously Simple Holidays: Recipes and Ideas to Celebrate the Season
Confetti Cakes For Kids: Delightful Cookies, Cakes, and Cupcakes from New York City's Famed Bakery
Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2004

If you'd like to win any of these cookbooks, just leave a comment here with a link to a summer recipe you think I should try (from your blog or any other website), as well as the cookbook(s) you'd love to add to your collection.  If multiple people want the same cookbook, I'm draw a random number.  I'm headed to Ohio for my college reunion and a visit with my folks, so comments will be open until I return on June 7!

  1. Such a generous person! I'm dying to make this Corn Pudding Pie I made a few summers ago! You need to check it out here: http://joonbug.com/miami/firstcourse/Majarete-Pie-Sweet-Fresh-and-Healthy/z5pbNHahUFk

    I'd love the 500 Cupcakes book! :) Thanks and hope you stop by my blog!

  2. I will trade you my favorite Cooking Light recipe (starring asparagus, which, at least here, is delicious right now!), for a request for the Cooking Light cookbook.

    This comes from the book Cooking Light Superfast Suppers, which are not always so Superfast but have never been anything other than really delicious.

  3. I adore this couscous recipe - it works with regular couscous as well as Israeli couscous, and it's wonderfully springy!

    And I'd love Confetti Cakes!

    I'd love the 500 cupcakes cookbook!

  5. Gah! I just bought a cookbook, and I feel trying to get another one would reduce the "specialness" of the one I just got. Crazy, right? Good way to do some housecleaning, though!

  6. I'd be interested in the cupcake book--my daughters are starting to bake and I think this would be great encouragement for them. For a recipe recommendation, I will give you one of our favorite salads made with Bok Choy or Napa Cabbage and perfect for picnics and potlucks: http://artofnaturalliving.com/2011/05/15/my-most-forgiving-bok-choy-salad-with-napa-cabbage/

  7. You should try my recipe for Brown Sugar Chai Spiced Ice Cream - http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/05/brown-sugar-chai-spice-ice-cream.html. I would love to win 500 Cupcakes or Confetti Cakes.

    For a hot summer day, try sambar: http://www.food.com/recipe/udipi-sambar-89803

    Piping hot, soaked up with idli (lentil cakes): http://www.indianfoodforever.com/indian-breakfast/idli.html

    Both recipes take forever, but most of it is down time, when you don't have to be involved. And you can make a huge vat of sambar to be enjoyed for a whole week. Yum, yum.

    Anyway, I'd be interested in the Mayo Clinic-Sonoma cookbook! Contact me at countdown621 at yahoo, thanks.

  10. I would love for you to try my Kulfi (indian ice cream) recipe- it's the perfect recipe to beat the heat---

    I am torn between the confetti cakes and the 500 cupcakes book!

  11. Great giveaway Sara! I really want to have the America's test kitchen healthy family cookbook - the 3 weeks I borrowed it from my library wasn't long enough!
