A Cookbook Giveaway!


Whether we like to cook or not, as mothers we are in charge of planning and cooking our families dinner each night. I love to try a new recipe once in a while, but it has to be easy and family friendly. Martha Stewart type cookbooks just don't get used!

I love to look up recipes online, but I also have several cookbooks sitting on my kitchen shelf that are used often. I like recipes that are written from other moms who understand time constraints in the kitchen.

A blog reader sent me a cookbook to review that their church just recently put together as a fundraiser. I like church cookbooks, as normally the food is basic standard meals that are easy to put together. I wasn't disappointed when looking through this cookbook! There are quite a few recipes I am excited to try out.

Here is some information on the cookbook."We are growing so fast that even having three different worship services on Sunday is barely enough to accommodate all of our parishioners. It's time to build a bigger church! To meet our financial goals, we've published a beautiful hardback cookbook with full color cover and dividers featuring over 300 of the best recipes from families and friends of the St. John Vianney Latin Mass Community in Maple Hill, KS."

They even have a page of free recipes online so you can get a feel for what is in the book! Click here to see the recipes, and make sure you check out the Homemade Rice A Roni recipe. I haven't tried it yet but it's on my list to make with a variation of brown rice in it.

All proceeds from the sale of the cookbook go to help build a church, so when you buy a cookbook you are helping a group of people get a new church faster! You can order online here.

I also have two of these cookbooks to giveaway!!

To enter, simply leave a comment letting me know if you use cookbooks frequently, or if you cook from scratch without recipes.

For extra entries, follow on facebook, twitter, share this giveaway on facebook, or blog about it! Leave a seperate comment for each thing you do. Please leave a way to contact you if you win!

This giveaway ends July 22 at midnight.

*Please note, I was sent a cookbook free of charge to review. Also, by writing this review I am not endorsing any certain type of faith.*

I would love to win this book! My 14 year old daughter and I both cook with cookbooks or online recipes. She actually wants to go to cooking school after graduation. There is one close to us so she can try out her recipes on her family.... :D

I love cookbook! I use them frequently, but also use the internet and recipes I clip from magazines. I'm not to much a "cook from scratch" person, but I do love to cook!

I absolutely LOVE to cook and have a passion for great cookbooks. I also tend to not stick to the rule of the recipe im using and tend to add my own ideas into it by switching it up to try something new.

I love cookbooks! I have a cabinet full that I use regularly. But I also make up meals from scratch fairly often as well. My little boy has a metabolic disorder so I also cook special meals for him.

I am always on the lookout for a good cookbook. I usually find a recipe I like and then play with it and make it my own. I love to cook but sometimes I find I need inspiration as I get stuck in a rut cooking my old standbys.

I am a cookbook person, too. I use recipes off the internet to start me off on the road to creating my own version of a dish. I also do a lot of freestyle cooking. I usually get rid of cookbooks after I find those recipes I really like. Those favorites end up in my recipe binder. A new cookbook would be great!

I would really like to win this! I'm a terrible cook and need directions. When we married, my husband did all of our cooking. It wasn't until baby 3 of currently 5 was born that I've had to take over and it hasn't been all that great. LOL

I use recipes as guidelines, but I never measure and I add and subtract ingredients and amounts according to my family's tastes. My boys are amazing at coming up with interesting and amazing concoctions.

I tend to cook without a recipe or search online to find out what I might make with my ingredients. I love cookbooks more for reading them cover to cover and getting inspiration.
