Mother's Day Giveaway Bonanza: Day 4/5

Posted May 07 2009 9:23pm
To enter today's giveaway, leave a comment telling me one of the ways your Mom showed her love for you.And don't forget to read the "Official-ish Rules" below to see how you can earn extra entries! You have until 11:59 PM EST tonight to enter! Good Luck!

Today I am giving away two fabulous cookbooks! There will be two separate winners drawn for this giveaway.

First up is " The Weekend Baker" by Abby Dodge

Here is just a sampling of the praise given to this wonderful book:

“Abigail Johnson Dodge understands that there are some days when you need a quick dessert and others when you want something spectacular. That realization is behind this book’s unusual-and sensible-structure. The recipes are organized according to how long it takes to make them. Whether you’re looking for a speedy dessert--say, Crunchy Berry Summer Crisp--or an elegant finish to a dinner party, such as Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake, you’ll find it here.”

- Food & Wine, December 2004

“This no-time-for-frills cookbook offers low effort/high yield desserts such as quickie cakes and no-bake snacks. Streamlined recipes are organized according to the time they take to make: Baker’s Express (ready in an hour), Baking in Stages (manageable steps) and Productions (more complex desserts).”

- USA TODAY, November 2004

I know *I* would be pleased to get this book and I think you will be too... great recipes for everyone from the most novice of bakers all the way to the experienced home baker. Good stuff!


Our second cookbook today is " The Moms' Guide to Meal Makeovers" by: Janice Newell Bissex and Liz Weiss

This is a book that I think any busy Mom or Dad would love to have. It shows you how to feed your family healthy, kid approved and delicious meals. And in fast and easy ways! What could be better?

From the website:
In our book, we show fellow moms and dads a better way with realistic guidelines designed to give families a healthy meal makeover. Our 5-Step Meal Makeover Plan begins with advice on how to market good nutrition to kids, establish food rules, and make life easier in the kitchen. Our Best of the Bunch chapter reveals which brands of kid convenience foods – hot dogs, chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, frozen pizza, and more — are the best tasting and most nutritious ones out there. What follows are tips for stocking a healthy pantry. We even serve up 120 recipes for family favorites such as Fast-As-Boxed Macaroni & Cheese, Cheesy Broccoli Soup, No-Nonsense Nuggets, Have-it-Your-Way Tacos, Sweet Potato Fries, and Chocolate Pudding with Toppers. All come complete with nutrition information and have been made over to be faster and more nutritious than the originals.
