A Giveaway for the New Year!

One of the fun things about blogging are the Giveaways. There are so many beautiful, useful and fun items that bloggers give away, asking only for a comment, an opinion, or an answer to a simple question to be included in the drawing.

So, let's get this new year going with a cookbook giveaway! We still have a fair amount of cold weather ahead of us, so I thought this book, Simply Soup, would be perfect for a giveaway!

There are four chapters - one for CLASSIC SOUPS like Tomato, Minestrone, French Onion, and more; HEARTY SOUPS like Roasted Mediterranean Vegetable, Mushroom Barley, Chicken Gumbo, Chicken & Potato with Bacon, to name a few; REFRESHING SOUPS like Chilled Avocado, Miso, Gazpacho, Cold Cucumber & Smoked Salmon; and SPICY SOUPS like Hot & Sour, Thai Chicken-Coconut and Corn, Chile & Chorizo.

Each recipe has a beautiful picture of the soup with clear and easy-to-read instructions. Would you like to have this book? All you have to do is leave me a comment so I can contact you!

At 3:00 PM ET on January 14 I'll draw a random number and send the book out pronto to the winner! This giveaway is open to everyone... I'll send it as far away as Napier, New Zealand or as close as Chinook, Montana!

Shoot, if you win and you live in Chinook, I'll deliver the book in person!
