Congratulations, Danielle! Be sure to reply to the email you’ve been sent, and I’ll get your cookbooks shipped out to you!

It was an excruciating task, but I narrowed down my collection to 10 of my most favorite cookbooks, and am giving away copies of all 10 to one lucky reader!

Stephanie ThompsononDecember 6, 2012at11:46 pmI really loved the new Sprouted Kitchen. There were several I enjoyed, but that is the one on my wish list. I also really want a copy of What Kate Ate. I love both blogs!

NatonDecember 6, 2012at11:58 pmMy favorite cookbook this year is my “Cajun Cooking for Beginners” which I picked up from my trip home from being an ex-pat in Australia! It was my boyfriends first trip to the states and he fell in love with jambalaya and gumbo so of course….now we’re cooking it in Queensland!

SarahonDecember 7, 2012at12:27 amI reference Usborn’s “Cookbook for Beginners” more often than I care to admit. It isn’t because I’m a beginner, but because the recipes are really tasty and healthy! Can’t wait to teach my little boy to cook using it; the illustrations will be great for him.

JanaeonDecember 7, 2012at2:15 amHm, favorite cookbook… I’d have to say a tiny little paperback book of Irish teatime recipes that I picked up while on vacation. I also picked up the (huge) green Gourmet tome, which is nice because it covers all the basics.
