  1. The fun goes on, but this time I am hoping for a win on 3 or 5, I have read the others at least twice, and they are superb.


    • WHAT???? This book ROCKS! I actually read cookbooks for funsies (though I am a foodie, too) and this one is awesome. Full disclosure: I do know the author. But I didn’t really when I got this book. I’ve cooked a few of the recipes (the frittata is to die for) and at some point, I’m going to try the tiramisu. The soups are SO good in this book, and she walks you through a step-by-step on making your own pasta, which is actually not as hard as you would think. In addition, I have it on good authority that the author is, in fact, a sis-tah who plays for our team. How could you go wrong with THAT? A sis-tah! Awesome Italian food! Vegetarian (that you can alter into meat-ful)! Way easier than you’d think, to cook a full traditional Italian meal. With a name like “Roberti,” she knows what she’s talking about… 🙂


  2. Well, I missed yesterday being sick…so hoping today will be lucky…would love to win Rrose and Dk’s stuff but there is lot’s of other intriguing things there!

    Ps…If I can’t win…then sure, I’ll pull for Nann to win!
    Very Happy Holidays to Everyone!


  3. writes my name on a slip of paper, puts a bit of kibble on it for Jove’s dog, tosses it into the bag. woohoo


    • Mmm hmmm. Oh, I see how this works…and it’s actually my dog who did the pick. She’s a piece of work. You can find her on Facebook: Taylor Wonderdog. But there are still 7 days of fun and madness after this, so keep on playin’! WOOOOO!


      • Well, I’m sure my kids would like some kibble as well. Or my dog for that matter. We have a Chinese Crested. Every seen one? Hairless wonder. Lily (the three year old) covered her little hairless body (the dog) in body glitter.


  4. Hi there
    What can I say? All the books look wonderful to me. I already own some of them but not all and I wouldn’t mind to complete my list.
    Thanks for this chance!



  5. Rrrose and DK would like to clarify that the winner of our books has the option of hardback OR e-book.


  6. This contest is better than any Advent Calendar I’ve ever owned! Thanks for the great books you’re giving away!


  7. Not sure if I’m too late but I want to put my hat in again… Cate Culpepper is a friend and it would be great to win her book, too.
