Cold Weather Giveaway

Hello friends, how is your week going? My week has been good but a definite cold snap is upon us here in the Pacific Northwest and seems will be with us for the rest of the week. When I said good by to the mister this morning at 6:45, it was a chilly 25..burr!

This past weekend we went thrifting and of course checked out the cookbook section, as you know I don't have enough on my shelves..Ha! Anyway, I hit a gold mine and now have a duplicate situation and would like to share with you.

I do hope you will not be offended by me offering a second hand book but could just not pass this one up in this almost new condition.

If you are not familiar with the author Sarah Leah Chase you can check out this link to here, where you can check out the inside of the book.  Sarah has several more books that you may own or have heard of.  Nantucket Open House Cookbook is the summer version of this one and came about as a result of her very successful deli shop on the Island named Que Sara Sarah.  She is good friends with Ina Garten who we know so well as Barefoot Contessa.

If you are old enough, you may also remember, or still own like I do , The Silver Palate Goodtimes cookbook that she was co-author of.

So, if you don't mind a book, in great condition but not brand new, just say so in your comment and I will happily put you in the hat on Monday when I will draw a name.

Have a happy day.  xo

Stay warm and cozy and thanks for the sweet giveaway!

I don't mind a used book or anything for that matter! That one would look so nice on my cookbook easel for the winter season...:) Thanks for thinking of your sweet!

I shop at the thrift store all the time, so I don't mind a used book at all. This looks like a good one. It is cold right now, isn't it? We're in for a string of frosty nights.

Looks like a fun book for cold days. Throw mine in please.

Well we all know I love vintage..... and when I checked this out on amazon I see it was published the same day my son was born so I HAD to comment and enter:)

Lola Nova said...

Always so generous Sherri! Sounds like just the right sort of book for our chilly weather. I did appreciate the sun coming out today after the frost of the morning. Did you get some up your way?

Jen said...

This sounds like a wonderful cookbook!! It is getting cold here. This week one of the low temperatures is going to be in the teens. But I'm one who loves the cold/snowy weather.

Delvalina said...


That's a good book though. :)
Anyway, I love how the sunlight dancing in your kitchen.
I hope you're doing well.

It does look like a great cook book! Who would care if it is second hand?
I'm not entering your drawing, as I just won your last book give away-yipee..
You are so generous to offer these gifts!
The temperature goes back and forth here with cold and then up to 40F. Can't make it's mind up..
Take care my friend-Kimberly
