{Review and Giveaway} - The Looneyspoons Collection

CONTEST CLOSED - Winner is comment #48  "My favorite cookbook is the Companies coming cookbooks , so many great ideas in the collection, Cher MacInnis"

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Janet and Greta Podleski - the authors of the bestselling cookbook The Looneyspoons Collection.  They offered to send me a copy of their book to review, and if I liked it, they would send me a copy to give you {my awesome readers} (a $34.95 value).

So... today I let the boys pick out something to make.  They chose the "Cookies for Rookies". 

  
I put the boys to work, and the recipe was super-easy. 


And, more importantly, the cookies were delicious.


Ready for a chance to win this fun book (which includes catchy titles, delicious recipes, and interesting nutrition tips)???

  2. My favorite cookbook is one that my grandmother got when I was a child from her church, called "The church ladies made it". Everything in it reminds me of when I was a child and the food is kid friendly and budget friendly. Looking forward to reading more of your blog :)

  7. My favourite cookbook is one that I made myself for my siblings and I so that we could cherish all the great recipes from our extended family...everything from my grandmother's secret fudge recipe to my uncle's rum pot...with pictures throughout of us at dinner tables, in the kitchen, around the picnic table and more!

  15. I Love to cook and to try new recipes. My Favorite cookbook was given to me by my friend's mother. It's called Mabou's Cookin' Kitchens, and it's a collaboration of recipes from the locals in Mabou. I use it so much that the pages are getting ratty, and when I get a new recipe I write it inside of this book.

    I'd love a chance to win a new cookbook. Loving' the blog Gina...keep it up.

    Hi Gina
    My favorite cookbook is crazy plates from the same author!

    A recipe idea for your readers from Highlights magazine that I made last night:
    Fruit Nacho's
    Place vanilla pudding in little desert bowls, place favorite chopped fruit & berries all over the pudding, stick cinnamon sugar pita chips around the side of the bowl to scoop the pudding. My kids and husband loved this kind of healthy desert!

  25. I typically look for things on allrecipes or other places on the internet because of my son's dietary needs (very-low-sodium) and I can find things that are easily tweaked in the vast universe that is "the net". That said, my next favourite is "Martha Stewart Cookies" (what can I say, I am a sucker for sweets).

  37. My favorite is a cookbook made by a lady who had a small pastry shop in my home town. "Vickie's" was the best, her gift to the town when she retired and closed the business was creating a cookbook of her most requested items. jfleeman at live (dot) com

  43. My favourite cookbook is one we are making together as a family. We constantly find new recipes and experiment. If we like it, it goes in our family cookbook. I also have traditional recipes from my parents and grandparents, my favourites from when I was a kid. We also like to experiment and make our own recipes for our cookbook, but not all make it in!!! When we have tried all the recipes we want to out of a cookbook, saving the ones we loved, we pass the cookbooks on to others....which reminds me, I need to clean out our stash!
