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.

I like caramel almond apple pie, but anything with chocolate is good, too.

Amy said...

What's my favorite kind of pie? BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. All of them. I do not discriminate.

Jelly said...

Hard to choose one pie since I really love them all but I'd have to say banana cream with graham cracker crust.

White Toast with Butter said...

I would love this -pecan pie!

Hugh said...

Apple!!

Dana @ Cooking At Cafe D said...

Shepherd's Pie!
Actually, we really do love savory dishes - maybe even more than sweet.

Otherwise, I guess pretty much anything homemade. Been hoping to try a Kentucky Chess pie one of these days.

Boy, wouldn't it be great to cook our way through this book with Eli!

I'm a newcomer to pie, which is strange to admit at age 27. I was very anti-crust as a child, and usually gravitated toward the filling only. Now that I've realized my grave misjudgments, and are back on the pie train, (of the few I've tasted so far) I really enjoy lightly sweetened fresh pear pie. Such a treat in Autumn!

Cheers,

*Heather*

Rick Bayless is amazing! My favorite pie is pumpkin. I know it's not very exciting, but since I only ever eat pumpkin pie around the holidays it has a special status in my heart. It's like autumn and family in a bite.

Strawberry rhubarb with a big scoop of Blue Bell's Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. Actually, I haven't found a pie I didn't love, as long as it's homemade.

I love pecan pie. It was the first kind of pie I learned to make and it fits because I'm from Texas!

My own made-from-scratch Coconut Cream Pie.

Brooke said...

Pecan Pie! I can't make it, though! It never turns out right when I do. I can make any other type of pie, but Pecan is my Achilles heal!

Lynda said...

i don't really eat pie but if i must choose, then custard pie!

Pecan pie has to be the favorite, but all pies are good. Love Rick Bayless and my son would be thrilled to get this book as he loves Mexican food. Thanks.

Angelina said...

Lemon Pie (a familiar recipe) is the best!

Alissa said...

Lol. Someone else beat me with the answer of shepherd's pie. :) I never choose pie if there are other desserts available, but if I had to choose a pie I would choose coconut cream pie with toasted coconut and almonds on top. Or apple pie with crumb topping and cinnamon ice cream.

imdaveswife said...

Oh my goodness...pick ONE???? Well I guess I'd have to say Sour Cream Apple with a little brown sugar crumble on top. Great, now I'm hungry. tee hee. A new cookbook? I don't think I've had one in ten years; high time!!!Thanks for doing this!!!
