Cookbook Giveaway - You Can Be A Winner!

Well even though I was a total loser yesterday for messing up my own recipe, you can have the chance to feel like a winner!  And nothing makes me feel better than offering a gift to someone else. 

That's right!  I'm giving away ONE FREE COPY of my cookbook since I just received a few extra copies in the mail yesterday. 

Look below, I even have my first celebrity endorsement for it - Alvin the Chipmunk and Brittany the Chipette! 






Below are the rules on how you can enter to win.
(Note: Even if you've already purchased my cookbook or if you're a friend of mine and I gave you a copy, you're still eligible to enter and win.  You could always give it away as a Christmas gift!)

To enter: 1. *Mandatory Entry* You must leave a comment on this blog post with your name and tell me why you want the cookbook.  And you must either leave me your email address in the comment so I can contact you if you win or send me your contact information directly at this address - learn.laugh.cook@gmail.com

2. *Bonus Entry* Become a public follower of this blog through Google Friend Connect and leave me a separate comment to let me know that you now follow. Current followers are eligible as well, just leave me a comment reminding me that you are already a follower.

There you have it!  You can increase your chances to win by doing any or all of the above seven methods.  But you MUST at the very least leave a comment here on this blog! 


Other Rules:  This contest is open to US and Canadian residents only, and runs until December 6, 2010 at midnight.  I will use a random number generator to select the cookbook recipient.  The winner will be notified by e-mail and will have 24 hours to respond (so be sure you either leave your email address in the comment or send me a separate email to learn.laugh.cook@gmail.com so I can tell you if you're the lucky winner).

Good luck!


And if you don't win this contest, don't worry!  Other chances to win a cookbook are coming up soon!  I have three colleagues who have told me that they will be doing giveaways of the cookbook as well.  I'll forward news on that once those contests are up and running! 

Have a great weekend everyone!  I'll be back Sunday night with my meal plan for next week.

  33. Even though your cookbook is on my Christmas wish list for gifts from my children, and I know that they are ordering it for me, I would still love to win this copy of your cookbook to give to my daughter for Christmas. I have been a follower for a long time!

  34. Thank you for this great giveaway! I love the comments you made about your cookbook, "Cooking is a chore that most of us have to do on a regular basis. I wanted to make cooking more fun and meaningful for myself and my family. Therefore, I changed my attitude, altered my eating habits, used the resources I had and created some terrific meals." -- That is where I want to get to. Right now, cooking is still a chore for me, and I think that is apparent to my family. I'd love to make it more fun and a time when we can be together as a family. Thank you for this giveaway! ~Cee~
