COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY: Not Your Mother's ?????? (Updated)

(Editor Update: So the Sales & Marketing Director just put the kibosh on promoting the book as it technically is not supposed to be released until January. So I will just adjust this to a SURPRISE giveway (*wink*wink*) to keep this post alive. If you don't win this "mystery" title this time, I hope you will all pre-order the title over at Amazon. Thank you and sorry for the confusion!)

I am ridiculously excited about this book - a) because I love books, and b) this is one of those books where you go from recipe to recipe, eager to make the next one immediately, and c) the author (Faith Durand) happens to be a lovely, down-to-earth person who has created a very nice cookbook that is a perfect blend of normal everyday food with just the right amount of fancy. It's a necessary antidote to the Ad Hoc at Home type titles that collect dust ton my bookshelf for most of the year.

How lovely does Beans Baked with Caramelized Onions, Corn, and Cheese sound on a chilly day like today? Or Butternut Squash Pasta Casserole with Gruyere and Pecans? It is absurd that at 10am I am already thinking about supper. Well knowing me, not that absurd.

I do know that this weekend I will likely be making Cranberry Cake with Walnut Praline Topping. Because THAT sounds like the perfect breakfast on a cold New England morning.


And yes, I DO work for the publisher but that just means I get a copy to give to YOU.  

One lucky person will get a copy of this fabulous book just in time for the holidays. Simply leave a comment telling me what YOUR favorite casserole type dish is and on December 15th I will randomly draw a name from the pot. 


Leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of this book and have it mailed to you.  Be sure to either check back to see if you won, or email me your contact info, in case YOU win!.

I've always loved and have continued to use to this day a recipe my mom used to make me as a child.

She told me a rather sad story about why she came up with it when she was young but I digress.

The casserole is Tuna. It's easy, quick and can be manipulated in so many ways. Tuna Casserole for me!

i've always considered casserole to be simply an amalgamation of things in the kitchen; that said, my favorite casserole is simply a bag of morningstar farms crumbles, sauteed red bell peppers and onions, a couple cans of tomatoes, and elbow mac.

Macaroni casserole with cheese topping! Thanks for the chance!

Growing up in the Midwest, there is not much I can't figure out how to fit into a 13 x 9 casserole--but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to learn!!! Looks like a great book.

My sister-in-law makes a fabulous broccoli and cheese casserole every Christmas. Once a year I indulge in cheesy, creamy, broccolishiness! Can't wait for this year!
nothing says cozy winter dinner like a home cooked cassarole! total comfort food.
Oh..my favorite cassarole type dish is an old family recipe my grandmother used to make... ye olde baked macaroni. it's not fancy at all, but it's always a win! warm,gooey fluffy,cheesy pasta of awesomeness, how I adore you!

I love good old fashioned tuna noodle casserole. Egg noodles, canned tuna, a bag of frozen peas, and a can of cream of mushroom soup. yummy!

Mr. Baker's Casserole, full of tart garden fresh swiss chard alternated with layers of sharp cheddar cheese and topped off with fresh eggs from Betsy's chickens all baked to a golden brown. (mr. baker was our favorite nurseryman back in phoenix and he passed this year after a good long life!)
