Super Fun Giveaway Time

I was lucky enough to just inherit an absolute treasure chest of cook books and cooking magazines.  Well, I wouldn't really say inherit because nobody died, thank goodness.  So from time to time I'm going to have a little giveaway and pass some of my fortune on to you.

This time around we have the "1001 Community Recipe" cookbook.  I didn't take the time to count them, but I'm assuming there really is 1001.  I already have a few recipes picked out to try, possibly one this afternoon if I can find the energy to get off my posterior region and do it.  This book has yummy sounding recipes like Lemonade Chicken, Cranberry Pork Chops, and a recipe for waffles that uses club soda!  But no pictures, so you have to use your imagination.



Then there are the two little Taste of Home magazines, that have pictures for each recipe.  In the picture below I purposely have the page opened to the Coffee Crusted Prime Rib because that's the recipe you'll need to make and invite me over for if you win.


Time for Rules:
1.  To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite dish to take to a potluck.
2.  Make sure I have some way of contacting you if you are the winner.  If there's no way, the entry get's tossed.
3.  Continental US only, please.
4.  Giveaway will end Thursday April 29th at midnight MST, and I will announce the winner sometime on Friday the 30th.
5.  Thanks for playing!

I am usually the one who brings dessert since nobody else in our small office bakes ... but my favorite dish to bring is Mexican spaghetti. It's easy to make, everyone likes it, and no leftovers to take back home :)

I love those community cookbooks! You can always count on finding some great recipes. I don't know what I would bring to a potluck, it's been awhile since I went to one. At the moment, I'm REAL fond of that banana pudding I made awhile back. I guess I would bring that.

My fav dish is probably an "antipasto" pasta salad. I had grown up on it, and when I moved to North Carolina no one even knew what it was. I felt like I was on another
planet!

I could seriously use a new cook book! LOL

Stoppin' by from SITS!

The Blonde Duck said...

Hmm. I usually wind up bringing desserts, but when I bring a side, I bring potato salad.

It depends on the time of day for the pot luck. I like taking deviled eggs, asparagus salad, or ham salad stuffed cherry tomatoes to name a few.

If I'm the lucky winner, give me a visit on my blog. What a nice addition to someone's cooking repertoire your give away will be.

Best,
Bonnie
