The Newlyweds' Cookbook Giveaway


Once you get married, traditionally the women would cook for the husband. Not in my house. My husband does about 90% of the cooking. Yep- and he enjoys it! We don't cook that much, but when we do, he rules the kitchen. When we got married, we got this great Cookbook called "The Newlyweds' Cookbook". At first, I thought another cookbook for my shelf, but after we looked through it, we really like the dishes. The book has everything from snacks, brunch, classic dishes and quick meals.
WIN IT: One lucky reader will win their own copy of "The Newlyweds' Cookbook" by Ryland Peters & Small.

How to Win: Leave a comment letting me know your favorite dish. Do you have a fabulous recipe for it, do you use cookbooks?

  1. I love to cook. My favorite dish is chicken parm. I make my own sauce from my grandmothers recipe. I wait for chicken to go on sale and then cook the paste. The whole family loves it.

  45. I LOVE cooking and baking most days. I love cook books with lots of beautiful pictures. They inspire me.

    I use recipe books for ideas, and sometimes to try out the recipe for the very first time. After that I tend to be a dump and mix cook. This is all good and well except that it's 'hard to pass on the recipe to those who prefer an exact measurement method.

  63. I have been an admirer of my grandmother's cooking all my life. She is Italian, and every Sunday she makes a dinner for the whole family. She makes the BEST meatballs around. In them, she includes bread (homemade, of course), and spices. Just writing about them makes me want some!
