This Weeks Giveaway!!


Okay, it is time for this weeks giveaway. I wasn't sure what to do this week, and then I realized that I somehow ended up with two "Rachel Ray: 365 No Repeats" cookbooks, so one lucky reader is going to get my extra copy. This is such a great cookbook with some really yummy recipes.

There are three ways to enter.

1. Leave me a comment letting me know who your favorite Chef is.
2. Subscribe to my blog for an extra entry.
3. You can earn another extra entry by blogging about the giveaway, and linking back to my blog.

That's it, just that simple. Good luck, and be sure to leave an email address so that I can contact you if you win. The contest will run until Friday night, and the winner will be announced on Saturday Morning.

Great giveaway! I love Rachael Ray's recipes, but I think my favorite chef has to be Tyler Florence. His style of explaining techniques makes even complicated meals sound feasible. Thanks for the contest!

Briana @ Bargain Briana said...

Rachel Ray is probably my favorite. Here recipes are yummy and so easy!

Sandy said...

although she is not a real chef I like the way rachael teaches and cooks- normal food- and speaks to you ok to the audience like friends not like we are below her- real food that I can actually eat and enjoy

paula deen is another but once again no chef but give me some butter BUT my all time chef has to be Julia Child- she was a hoot watching on pbs growing up and although I never balled a duck or anything or poured a bottle of wine into a duck---wait maybe I did I put wine in a chicken but I wasn't silly drunk- She was a funny and educational lady and am sure I got ideas from her in the back of my head

Kelli said...

My favorite chef (to watch) are the chefs on Bravo's Top Chef each season. Inspiring...thanks for the offer.

torinem said...

Paula Dean! Anyone who uses a stick of butter in almost everyone of their recipes is a winner in my book!

Roxie said...

I'm new to this whole blogging and Post a Comment site so I'm not really sure that I'm doing it right but I'm trying and I'm sure having fun and learning about alot of fun things available to people. I really like watching Rachel Ray and Paula Dean on the Food Network, Rachel Ray cooks alot of meals that my family likes and that's quick and easy without alot of clean up. It would be nice to have one of her cookbooks and not have to pull up a recipe on the internet and copy it down (our printer been down for several months). Thank you for the chance to win a copy.
