Our Best Bites Cookbook Giveaway

Our Best Bites

The sweet ladies behind Our Best Bites sent me a copy of their new cookbook to review.  Before the book ever arrived at my house I knew I would love it.  I think I have shared about 20 of their posts with you on my blog in the past year and I have loved every single recipe that I have tried.  LOVED!

Remember the chocolate chip cookie pie:

 

I mean what is not to love!

For every recipe that I have tried, my sister-in-law has tried ten.  My favorite that she recommended to me was Spicy Honey Chicken:


Which you have for dinner and make extra so that you can have this salad the next day for lunch:


The first recipe I tried out from the new cookbook was the Vegetarian Black Bean Taquitos.


I had some cilantro lime ranch dressing left over from dinner the night before and thought this would be the perfect way to use them up.  And I was right.  I will be sharing this  recipe with you later this week.

Recipes are obviously the most important piece of a great cookbook, but next to that the Rollover Ingredients Index has to be my favorite part.  These girls have listed all of the ingredients that you will have left over from a recipe and give you a list of other recipes in their cookbook that will use them up!  Now you won't have to throw out the rest of that fresh basil or dump buttermilk down the drain.  It is the perfect way to help you save money and a great way to plan your grocery list.

And I won't even tell you how much I love the bookmark, because I am probably the only person that unintentionally closes my cookbook a dozen times while trying to make dinner.

Honestly, the only thing I think I would change about the cookbook is the cover. It is super cute, but every time I pull it out to use is my 3-year-old thinks we are making cupcakes.

Our Best Bites

So, now to the fun part!  You can win a copy of your very own!!  Just leave a comment letting me know which recipe from Our Best Bites is your favorite.  If you don't have a favorite yet, head over to their blog and let me know which one you want to try.

Want more entries?  Post about this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, or twitter and then leave a comment here with a link.  (one entry for each, please leave each link in a separate comment).

And for even more chances to win, you can subscribe to Our Best Bites blog, follow them on Twitter, and like their Facebook Page.

So that is seven lucky chances to enter!!

Good luck!  You have until Midnight (CST) March 20, 2011 to enter.   A winner will be chosen at random from all entries.  Winner will be announced on Monday, March 21 and will need to respond within 48 hours.

Our Best Bites provided me with a copy of their cookbook to review and a copy to giveaway to one of my readers.  All opinions are my own.

  107. They've got some great recipes and cute ideas. I made their baked zucchini fries last weekend and they were scrumptious (especially dipped in a little ranch dressing).

    Plus, that glass block holiday jell-o keeps catching my eye. It would be the perfect addition to an art awareness lesson I'm planning for my son's class. Now, if I were only adept at handling the stuff.

    Really, who can't make jell-o, right? Sadly, so wrong in my case.
