Give it away now!

I received a very happy package in the mail last week – one from Penguin containing Kate Jacobs’ new book, Comfort Food. I thought, why not share the wealth?

If you liked Friday Night Knitting Club, you’ll enjoy Comfort Food – a book about women, family and – of course – food bringing people together. I finished this book in just two days – I was eager to find out what was happening with Gus Simpson, her family, and the crew of her CookingChannel show, Eat, Drink and Be. Kate has a way with bringing out the good side of every character, even the ones you’re sure you’ll hate at the beginning of the novel. The book made me want to whip up some food and share it with my loved ones, much like the way Friday Night Knitting Club made you wish you had the book on tape so you could knit while reading.

To win a copy of Comfort Food, simply leave a comment on this post that mentions your favorite food and why you love it so much. A winner will be randomly chosen. Because I want as many people to get something as possible, a second person will be chosen (again, at random) to receive a Comfort Food tote bag. The winner will be announced July 3, giving you almost two weeks to enter. (And if you don’t win, make sure to go to your favorite book store and pick up a copy!)

  1. The fist thing that comes to mind is Mom’s Thanksgiving Turkey Stuffing — she makes so much, it’s also baked off as a dressing! Sweet, savory and nutty, it fits the bill on so many levels. If only we could have it year round….

    Competitions are always good *lol*My favourite food wold be Fondue… melted cheese, white bread *drools* but it tastes best when its freezing cold outside and you have friends over (if they are willing to leave their houses when its so cold:D). Chokolade version of fondue is also very good;) But unlike normal fondue, its best eat alone of with my sweetheart (lets face it, who wants to share their chokolate with lot of people?)

    My favorite food..hmm…a really good salsa. Love chips and salsa, could it it everyday. I craved it like crazy during my first pregnancy. It would make me burp something terrible. When we were eating out, hubby would pretend it was him.
