Sharing Gooseberry Love {A Giveaway}

For a while now it has both a goal and dream of mine to have one of my recipes accepted and published into the Gooseberry Patch family of cookbooks. And this week, it happened! Well, actually I got the letters telling me it was happening back in July, but the books are finally released and there I am in print! See, dreams really do come true! And for me, they came true 3 times over! That's right, 2 books, and 3 recipes later I am finally in Gooseberry Patch. Plus, about 2 weeks before these were released, I received letters telling me two more of my recipes are going into books come this summer! I couldn't be more excited and proud! I have so much respect for Gooseberry Patch, and am honored to be in their cookbooks!



See, there I am! It's so cool to flip through and find my name!

For those wondering here are the recipes featured:

Split Pea Soup- Slow Cooking Year Round Page 69
Roasted Potatoes- Slow Cooking Year Round Page 88
Butter Bean Soup- Weeknight Dinners Page 7

And when you are published in a Gooseberry Patch book, you receive a copy for free. But those folks are so nice, when I asked if I could have an extra of each to giveaway to my fans, they were happy to oblige. See, without all of you...my loyal foodie family...I would have never had the chance to have this dream come true, so I want to pay it forward! So, here is your chance to win a copy of either of these! 

********Giveaway********
Rules:
1. This contest is open to US Residents 18 and older ONLY.

2. The winner will be chosen by Random.org 

3. The winner will be notified by email and Facebook. He/she will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen. 

4. When leaving comments for entries, they MUST BE SEPARATE ones AND include an email address so it's easy for me to find the winner. If entries are together, it will only count as (1) and if no email, entry will not be considered.

5. If any of the extra entries are items you are already doing, please just remind me!



6. Contest Ends: Friday February 1, 2013



Two Lucky Winners Will Receive
 (1) Copy Slow Cooking Year Round
OR
(1) Copy Weeknight Dinners
 (I have one copy of each to give to 2 separate people)


Mandatory Entry:
1.Leave me a comment on this post. BE SURE TO TELL ME WHICH BOOK YOU WOULD WANT IF YOU WIN!!!

Extra Entry:
1. Become an EMM Facebook fan. Leave a comment when you have.
