Tailgating with Dorie~ A COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!!

Photobucket

Well, the more accurate title for this post would be Biscuits with Dorie, but because I made these biscuits for our first tailgate of the year, I was inspired to come up with a football themed pots title...Biscuits are perfect in many, many settings- including on a paper plate with fresh berry jam, on a Saturday game-morning at the start of the season. While making these biscuits I though about how much I love my copy of Baking from My Home to Yours, by Dorie Greenspan. I purchased it when I joined the weekly baking ranks of Tuesdays with Dorie, and loved each and every recipe I tried! While I was unable to keep up with my weekly TWD commitment, I still cherish this book and use it VERY often!! There are so many great recipes that are really not all that technically difficult and yield professional, delicious results. When I make something from this book I prefer to post the link to buy the book vs posting a copy of the recipe...I've decided to go one step further and GIVE YOU THE BOOK!!! THAT'S RIGHT, A FREE COPY OF DORIE GREENSPAN'S BAKING; FROM MY HOME TO YOURS!!!!

Just type "Tuesdays with Dorie" into the search feature on this blog to get a tiny idea of the bounty of glorious recipes that this awesome book contains! Mine is a floury-sticky mess, but don't worry, the winner will receive a shiny new copy~ ready to get coated in flour and sugar!

Here's how it's going to go down~
All you have to do is POST A COMMENT with your favorite Dorie recipe or if you've never tried one, the one you'd like to try, on to this post on or before Tuesday September 15th and a winner will be chosen at 6pm PST on Tuesday September 15, 2009.

I'll post links back to this giveaway on my TWITTER and FACEBOOK page to remind you to get your post up before 9/15/09 at 6pm PST!!
Good Luck~

The Mays family is SO making Chocolate Chunksters! I'm not sure who will eat the most of them, Acacia and Alaya - or their Dad! I'd guess Douglas!

What a lovely giveaway. I always see all the wonderful TWD posts and sit here drooling. One that I'd really like to give a go myself is the Brown Sugar Apple Cheesecake, as I love apples and cheesecakes, but have never combined the two.

This cookbook looks great! I have not made any Dorie recipes, so I did a search. I didn't get very far, because I found one of my fav combinations. Chocolate and Cherries. The Devil's Food White Out Cake (with the Cherries) looks very very drool worthy!

I have followed the blogroll for almost a year and have made a few of the recipes--all of which were delicious! One of my many favorites would have to be the lemon yogurt cake and the many brownie recipes :) I would LOOOOVE to own the book myself and start from the beginning!!
