Cookbooks Giveaway!



Today, I'm taking part in the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival. This giveaway will be open all week. Enter before Friday at Noon (EST) by leaving one comment on this post before then. You do not have to be a blogger to win. Just make sure I am able to contact you! That means leave an email address in your comment or a link to your blog. Winners will be drawn randomly and will be announced in a separate post here at 1 PM (EST) on Friday, August 1st, 2008. If any winner does not reply to me within seven days, a new winner will be drawn from the original comments.



Okay, now for the giveaway!



I have in my hot little hands, TWO cookbooks to give away. They will be separate, so two winners will be drawn and each will win one. You may name your preference in your comment and if you win, I'll do my best to make everyone happy, but the ultimate decision is mine.



The books are: Gifts from a Jar: Soups Chilis & More and Gifts from a Jar: Cookies & Muffins.

Each book comes with instructions for each gift in a jar, tear-out recipe cards to attach to your jars and the fabric and raffia to dress your jars up for gift-giving!
Be sure to enter my other giveaways at Its All for the Best here and here.
Visit Bloggy Giveaways for many, many more!
