Something a little different tonight, and something you haven’t seen here in a while. You may have noticed there haven’t been a lot of product promotions or giveaways here on the blog in the last few months. I think I’ve just naturally started to shy away from them.
To be honest, they make me uncomfortable. When I first started getting offers, they were new and exciting. But these days I try to be very selective about what I accept and promote (which isn’t much). With that said, sometimes I get really excited about something I find at the grocery store. Things like Whole Foods 365 Almond Milk or Nasoya Lite Firm Tofu , but those are always things that – just like you guys – I buy with my own money and get excited about in my own tiny kitchen.
So I hope you can all rest assured that if I DO have some sort of gratuitous product placement on here, it is only because I am so excited that I can’t bear to keep it to myself – I simply love it (and you) that much. Remember last year when the nice folks at the publishing house sent me a copy of Terry Walters’ Clean Food ?
Well…she’s done it again.
Clean Start is the second book in the amazing Walters collection, and I assure you it is just as good as the first book. Dare I say, it might be…better?
Loaded with even more gorgeous photos than the original, and chapters organized by season, Terry has a way of keeping ingredient lists simple, while making food the feels and looks gourmet.
Both books have made their way onto my coveted “favorites” shelf in my kitchen .
Nestled below two Ball jars full of chia seeds and shelled hemp seeds (totally normal).
And so like one friend telling another about a fabulous new cookbook find, I thought I’d share this one with all of you.
Quite literally – one lucky reader will get their very own copy of Clean Start! Let’s have fun with this one. I’m sitting and looking through an outside window, watching city workers string up holiday lights in the trees, and sipping a hot coffee from a red Starbucks cup.
In the spirit of keeping things seasonal (ala Terry !), leave a comment telling me what you are looking forward to the most this upcoming holiday season. (Any holiday counts!) I will announce the winner tomorrow (Friday) night at 8pm – what better way to start the weekend than with a free cookbook, right?
I will start – I am counting the minutes until my mom and sisters arrive for a pre-Thanksgiving/birthday celebration weekend. So excited to have my family all together for the first time in over a year!
