Welcome to the final month of CHUSday. To end with a bang this month, I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble bookstores instead of a silly kitchen gadget. That way you can indulge your cookbook fantasies or take the CHU pledge and use the ones you have and buy something yummy to read instead. However you plan to use it if you win, here are the rules:
- Make a new recipe. This month for the first time you can make anything new, a Christmas cookie recipe, a quick supper dish after a long day of shopping. It doesn’t have to be from an old cookbook gathering dust or a brand-new one you haven’t opened.
- Tell us what you made and where you got the recipe. The recipe can be from a well-loved cookbook, the Internet, your next-door neighbor. As long as it’s new to you.
- Post your entry as a comment on ANY of the CHU blogs including this one.
Remember, if you’ve entered to win ANY month since we began in August, you’re entered in this final giveaway. But multiple entries count, so make a new recipe and enter it this month, too. You’ll have more chances to win.
Congratulations to Lee Ann who won November’s Piggy Wiggy Little Whisk and an autographed novel with this entry:
- Fajita-Style Quesadillas (Better Homes and Gardens/Oct 2011/) It says just 43 cents per serving (gotta love that). I did add chicken to mine. Bought a precooked one at the store and shredded half of it. I also added Pico de Gallo to mine as well. Served it with spanish rice. DH loved it, aked if this was the first time I had ever made quesadillas, I told him it was the first time I had made them for him 🙂
I think Lee Ann’s DH is a lucky man.
And, as a nice surprise: In special CHU business, Barnes and Noble has a special treat for all cookbook hoarders today. It’s a one day only cookbook sale. 50% off cookbooks. Since cookbooks also make nice gifts, I thought I’d tickle your fancy. But it’s only today.
(It’s a day later and sale is over, but here’s another great link. 25 gorgeous cookie recipes from the Washington Post. What are you waiting for?)
Remember, ANY new recipe. $50 bookstore gift certificate. Cooking for the holidays. What are you waiting for?
