Giveaway: Simple Servings cookbook!


Food / Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

UPDATE: As of December 6, 2014, this giveaway is closed.

*****

Dear people,

I’m happy to announce there’s a new cookbook on the market around here! – Simple Servings: recipes celebrating the place of food, faith & laughter at Faith Builders.

1

Beatrice King has gathered an incredible collection of great eats. She’s been head cook at FBEP for ten years, and got so many requests for her recipes she decided to do it right and pack those babies into a spiral binding.

3

It’s got a gorgeous design and user-friendly layout, as well as full-color-photograph divider pages—and five hundred plus recipes, all tried and tested.

5

It’s not a comprehensive cookbook made to cover all aspects of cooking—rather, it ensures every recipe is a winner, and goes big with certain sections. I got my fingers in it by copy-editing, and as I edited – well, I admit it. I got crumbs and smears on the proof pages because I couldn’t stop trying out the recipes pre-publication. Awesome!

7

From Mocha Smoothies to Italian Cheese Bread, from Mexican Tortilla Stacks to Dulce de Leche Cake, you’ll be wiping drool. Promise. And that’s not even touching the delightful salad section… Or the special “Large Quantities” sector for cooking with crowds.

We’ve slipped a little history of Faith Builders in the front and a couple of good essays in the back.

2

And here’s my own little slice–a recipe I’ll share with you, but only in print!

8

Christian Learning Resource is offering a copy of Simple Servings for free to one of you readers! We’re going to make it an unusually short giveaway, closing Saturday December 6 at midnight, so that those who don’t win have time to take advantage of a second offer: free shipping on all orders placed before December 10! These copies will arrive by Christmas, Lord willing—just in time for you to try out some new holiday recipes, or wrap the book in pretty paper for the chef in your life.

6

We want the word spread on this cookbook! To enter to win, you must share the giveaway news with someone. You may share it on a public network, or simply copy and paste this link {https://sharizook.com/giveaway-simple-servings} into a private email to a friend. Leave a comment and tell me who you shared it with {“BFF” works for me…} and also, just for fun, what favorite food makes your mouth water.

Example: I’m sharing this giveaway with YOU and I would give a lot for a Lindor truffle right now…

Share the joy. And the Chocolate Brownie Trifle. (That’s right. Found on page 388.)

UPDATE: As of December 6, 2014, this giveaway is closed.

Open to US residents only–or those with US mailing addresses. Giveaway closes at midnight on Saturday, December 6, 2014. Winner will be chosen by random.org.

Shared the link with my sis. What I’m hungry for… hmm, a french vanilla latte would be nice since I just had my lunch and am simply not hungry right now.

I shared it on Twitter. And I’m hungry for… umm… I just want to eat something with somebody else. I could be a latte and a scone, anything chocolate, or tacos, as long as there’s a friend with it.

I’m hungry for fresh fruit. To be specific, a just-picked sun-warmed pineapple or a tree-ripened mango bursting with juice and flavor. Mmmmmmm….

I’ve never been to faith builders or met Beatrice, but because I love new cookbooks, especially ones with large quantities section, I’m going to put this on my Christmas wish list. 🙂 (and innocently let everyone in the family know about ordering by Dec. 10) as for what I’m hungry for? A bowl from Chipotle!

I shared this on FB. I’m craving a decadent peppermint mocha. Ah, those were the days!

Alison

I shared this giveaway with two of my friends, Betty and Erika by email. Although I have lost all faith in random.org, I will never give up and keep entering my name. A cookbook by Beatrice would be the ticket to my success in the kitchen. (i think) These days, Warm Custard Drink is at the top of my list.
