In celebration, I am going to give away a copy of Better Home and Gardens New Cook Book-Celebrating the Promise. This is an edition that was put out to celebrate the 25th year of the Susan B. Komen Foundation. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the book were given to the foundation.
This was a limited edition of the 14th edition of the New Cook Book. There is a special section at the beginning that contains recipes from celebrity cooks.
Like all good basic cookbooks, besides recipes, there are charts and all kinds of information. Nutritional information is include for the recipe. Inside the front cover is a chart of equivalents.
Inside the back cover is a chart of emergency substitutions.
Beside common recipe topics, this book has a section on cooking basics, canning and freezing, grilling, and 20-minute meals.
Everyone one needs a good basic cookbook in their recipe collection. If you don’t have one, this may be just the chance for you to get one. If you do have one, it would make a great gift for a new bride.
Although I purchased this book several years ago, I did it to support finding a cure for breast cancer. I have an older edition and have never used this one.
To enter to win this book, you do not have to tweet, twitter or “like” on Facebook. All that is required is that you make a comment on this post. Since my “inquiring mind” wants to know, tell me if you have a Better Home and Gardens plaid cookbook, if so, what edition, and what is the name of your favorite recipe from it.
The contest will run through Tuesday, May 15th at midnight PDT. I will draw a winner on Wednesday, May 16th so that I can get the book in the mail before we leave on vacation.
Good luck and thanks again for reading my blog.
