Tuesday, December 4th, 2012 by Lisa

Monday, December 10, 2012 at 5pm PST.  This giveaway is now OVER.  Thank you so much for all of your comments!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified via email.  Congratulations Jill!

Lisa Irvine writes at Lisa’s Blogety Blog. You can find her at @Lirvine98 on twitter.  If you have an idea for a giveaway, please let her know!

Do you watch “The Chew”?  It is one of my favorite shows!  I am a big fan of Carla Hall.  I love her food philosophy.  Carla believes that the only way you can make memorable and nourishing food is to cook it from the heart.

Carla credits her grandmother’s love of cooking and rich Southern food traditions she passed down as her main inspirations in the kitchen.

“Cooking with Love: Comfort Food That Hugs You” is full of recipes made with love.  From “Down-Home Deviled Eggs with Smoky Bacon” to Lobster Rigatoni”, you just know this food is going to be delicious.

Some of the recipes in “Cooking with Love” are:

  • Bacon, Blue Cheese, and Apple Stacks
  • Sweet and Gold Potato Salad
  • The Saints’ Gumbo with Andouille Sausage, Chicken, and Crayfish
  • Super Squashy Butternut Squash Grits
  • Mama’s Hamburger Help-Me Meal
  • Pan-Seared Turkey with Cranberry Pear Relish

I need to mention that this is not a gluten-free cookbook, however there are many recipes that are naturally gluten-free or can be adjusted by using gluten-free ingredients.

“Cooking With Love” can be purchased at, Barnes & Noble and is also available for download at iBooks!  This cookbook would be a really great gift for that “foodie” on your list!!!  😉

I am also very excited to be able to offer a free copy of “Cooking With Love” to one very lucky reader!!!
