Cookbook Giveaway!


I'm back and I'm having a giveaway to celebrate!


Back in July I joined, BloggerAid–Changing the Face of Famine, a group of international food bloggers determined to make a difference. I've been working on a special project with them that I will be announcing in the near future.

Within this organization, I'm also part of a group called View and Review. Members of this group have the opportunity to tryout new products and cookbooks and then post a review there and on our blogs. My first cookbook arrived yesterday. The Everything Cookies and Brownies Cookbook by Marye Audet will be receiving special attention from me this week. I know……it's a hard job, but somebody has to do it. Cookies and Brownies and a Cookbook, oh my! Where will I start? What recipe has my name on it? Why am I salivating already? Lemon Crinkles, Keylime Cutouts, Pumpkin Whoopie Pies……how's a girl to decide?

Be sure to stop by next Friday for my review, learn more about the author, and trust me, I'll be sharing photos and a recipe with all of you!

Best of all, Marye not only sent a copy for me to review, she also sent one for a giveaway! (Don't we like her already?) And she signed both copies, stating that if she becomes famous I can sell it and buy a cup of coffee. Well, Marye I'm putting on a pot of fresh coffee and pulling out my baking pans — I already know this book isn't going anywhere!

Now on to the giveaway! To enter for your chance to win The Everything Cookies & Brownies Cookbook all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Additionally, if you share a link to this giveaway on your blog, Facebook or Twitter you'll be rewarded with an additional entry for each place it appears! (If you do any of these be sure to leave the link in a second comment here so that I know to enter you again for each one.)

Let's see, that can give you a total of up to four entries! How about you tell your readers to mention your name and blog in their comment and YES, you'll be entered for yet another chance for each of your faithful followers who join in the fun. Cool, huh? Add a link to this post in your blog and if you'd like a graphic, just grab the one in my sidebar.

All entries from around the world will be accepted until Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 5:00 PM EST. Sorry, but anonymous comments are not eligible for this giveaway.

The lucky winner will be announced next Friday, October 23, 2009 and as soon as I receive the shipping information the cookbook will be on its way. Good luck to all.

I'm linking this to Foodie Friday over at Michael's at Designs By Gollum, be sure to stop by and click on all the other fabulous foodie links. It's great to be back and I can't wait to catch-up on all your blogs!

Hi Rhonda!!! Nice to read a perky post by you!!! I see you've recovered from the flu! Oh gosh it's been ages since I've baked, and I don't have the best oven right now, so don't enter me in the contest, but I wanted to say hello anyway! Thanks so much for your comment today!!!
Hugs! :)

Mary said...

CrazyCris said...

Danger! Danger! Danger!

a cookie and brownie cookbook when one is trying to lose weight?! no problemo!!!

I love cookies and brownies and am reduced to the ones I can make by scratch because there's no such thing as mixes here (or the rare rband that exists is HORRIBLE!) and not many cookie options on the supermarket shelves (don't get me going on what is considered a "brownie"!)

So sign me up!

yummmmmm

Same here just saw your post on the BloggerAid forum, is it a case of better late than never, time will tell

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
