Rick Bayless Cookbook Giveaway!

Cause I think Rick Bayless rocks.

Cause it's chock fulla recipes that you should make.

Cause I found this cookbook for a great bargain I bought two, one for you and one for me.

Cause it's almost the weekend and the terrible, horrible humidity has finally left so my hair can return to normal again.

Cause we're having absolutely beautiful weather here in New England for oh like 8 days in a row! I'm feeling hap, hap, happy.

Cause I know sometimes you just need to curl up with a good book (or cookbook) and chill.

Cause I love you all.

I'm giving away a copy of Rick Bayless' cookbook Rick & Lanie's Excellent Kitchen Adventures.


Rick Bayless


Chef-Dad - Teenage Daughter. Recipes from Mexico to Thailand, by way of Oklahoma, France and Morocco, with side trips to Spain, Japan and Hong Kong. Each chapter starts with some wonderful stories by Rick and Lanie. It's really like reading a little mini biography before you get to all the recipes!

Here's just a few to get you salivating: Huevos Rancheros; Bangkok-Style Chicken Satay; Moroccan Meatballs, Tartiflette (French potato and cheese supper), recipes from Hickory House (his parents' barbecue restaurant, so many great ones!) Pad Thai, Potato-Leek Soup with Bacon, Profiteroles, Chocolate Truffles, Crispy Meringue Shells with Ice Cream and Fruit Salsa,and Chinese Pot Sticker Dumplings. I could go on and on.

I love that each recipe includes an intro by Rick and then by Lanie. I love that there is a little box in each recipe that says "DO THIS FIRST", cause that's what I always say to myself when I'm getting ready to make something "ok what to do first?". Problem solved. Rick even gives you music recommendations to go with each chapter. How cool is that?

So whatcha gotta do to win a copy?

Just answer a silly little question.....

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF PIE?

Leave it in the comment section. I don't Tweet, but if you Tweet it, I'll give you another entry, just let me know. If you share it on Facebook, I'll do the same.

I'll pick a winner on June 9th cause I like the number 9.
