The winner and some thoughts about cookbooks!

We hav e a winner–Liz (Isaac’s mom), two great cookbooks are coming your way: Candy Construction by Sharon Bowers and Cookie Swap by Sharon’s friend Lauren Chattman! Enjoy!!

Sometimes the best cookbooks aren’t found in bookstores! Our family friend Paula Klein visited a few weeks ago, and I was very honored that she brought me a copy of the cookbook she compiled for her loved ones. She’s an awesome baker, and the book is full of her tried-and-true recipes!

This one is so good that her husband, Roy, says he’s mentioning it on her tombstone. (I think he’s joking!!)

Paula’s Banana Bread (A recipe good enough to be carved in stone!)

1 stick margerine

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

3/4 cup mashed ripe banana

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/4 cup flour

Mix the ingredients in the order they are listed. Put in a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Congratulations to the Winner!!

 

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving.

Wow–that poll was fun! Looks like most people love stuffing!

Today let’s try something else new! I’ve got a great cookbook to give away to one lucky reader.

Simply leave a comment with your suggestion for how I can improve my blog or things you’d like me to write about.

In one week, next Wednesday night, I’ll use Random.org to pick a winner. (If you’re ever running a raffle or contest, that’s a great service to use, to keep things totally fair!)

If you don’t know me personally, make sure to leave me an e-mail or some other way to contact you, so I can  find out how you want me to get your prize to you.

I can’t wait to hear all your ideas!

Good Luck!!
