Have you ever entered a contest sponsored by a blogger? I have entered many, especially the contests sponsored by Pioneer Woman because she gives away such incredible prizes. I know it is a little silly because she literally has 40 to 50 thousand people who enter her contests. The chances of winning are pretty small.
A month or so ago Madison, of Espresso and Cream sponsored a contest for a new cookbook by Alice Currah, called Savory Sweet Life. I was really excited when I saw it because I have been reading Alice’s blog Savory Sweet Life for about a year now and had actually considered purchasing her new cookbook. I absolutely love cookbooks, and read them like a novel. I have been collecting them for many years and probably have about 100 or so of them. I am really glad I waited to buy because guess what……I won the Savory and Sweet Life Cookbook giveaway from Espresso and Cream! Thank you Madison!!!
As soon as I received it in the mail, I sat down and devoured every page. It is organized by occasion instead of the traditional food category. There are chapters on Sunday Mornings, Block Party, Game Day, and Family Game Night just to name a few. Here are just a few of the recipes that immediately went on my “Recipes to Try” list:
Tomato Pesto Olive Tart
Smoky Corn Chowder
Dad’s Carrot Cake
The Ultimate Breakfast pan”Cake”
Doesn’t that pan “cake” look fun? I think it will be a great breakfast entree to try when the kids are all here for the holidays.
The cookbook contains 100 recipes with everyday ingredients and easy to follow directions. Alice took all the gorgeous food pictures herself. Now I just need to get working on that “Recipes to Try” list. Pretty sure I will not get through it in my lifetime!!
