In the month of February, we’ll be celebrating Love (and Like). Mary has already filled you in on the Love part, so I’d like to let you know about the “Like” part – and how you can enter to win our first contest on Facebook.
Just go to the A Passionate Plate Facebook page, “LIKE” us, and then leave a quick post about a food that makes you think of love.
On Valentine’s Day, we’ll pick one LOVE POST as our contest winner! It’s that easy!
Just so you know, I took my assignment to choose a cookbook for this contest VERY seriously and it wasn’t easy. When I Googled (I love how that’s a real word now – it’s even in the dictionary) “love food cookbook” several options were presented. I perused them carefully because this is our first contest, and I wanted this cookbook to be just right. To my horror, I came upon this book: Natural Harvest – A Collection of Semen-based Recipes. Seriously! The summary states, “If you are a passionate cook and are not afraid to experiment with new ingredients – you will love this cook book!” Passionate – yes. Semen – NO! I need to be more careful with my Google searches.
After quite a bit more selective searching, I came up with just the right cookbook… one that really is all about love and the title says it all, “The I Love to Cook Book – Rediscovering the Joy of Cooking for Family & Friends” by Lauren Groveman.
This beautiful, hard-bound book is full of delicious recipes, helpful and time saving kitchen tips, gorgeous photography and inspiration for anyone searching for a truly exceptional home cooking experience. After spending a few days with this book, it’s definitely going to be a hard one to give away!
