Cookbook Winner!

August 16, 2009

Thanks to all who entered my little cookbook giveaway.  It was fascinating reading about people’s favorite book.  There were some I have and adore (Sunday Suppers at Lucques, Tartine), some that I have but don’t use nearly enough (Breads from La Brea Bakery), some that I had never heard of and am intrigued by (Eating Cuban, Hali’imaile General Store), and some you might be surprised to know I don’t have (anything by Mark Bittman, Super Natural Cooking).  In short, I have some shopping to do.  :)


As you can see, I had a very scientific method for picking the winner – my son Graham picking a number out of a bowl.  Drum roll, please.


Comment #10 was from Sara at Sprouted Kitchen.  She mentioned Super Natural Cooking which is the cookbook written by Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks fame.  Sara’s blog,is one of the most beautiful blogs out there.  Sara, send me an email (danatreat [at] gmail [dot] com) so I can get your address.


We had our summer party last night and it was so much fun.  I tried to do as much as possible in advance, but I still felt like I was scrambling for the first hour or so just trying to get all the food out.  I had some terrific helpers who made things so much easier, but I still don’t feel like I got to talk to people as much as I wanted to.  I will share a couple of recipes in the next few days, but right now I need to clean up my kitchen.
