Signed Cookbook Giveaway!

December 13, 2011

This being the season of giving, I thought it might be fun to give away a signed copy of my book. To win, simply leave a comment describing either your favorite apple variety OR your favorite apple recipe (doesn’t need to be mine). Using one of the many fine random number generators available online, I’ll choose a winner on Friday. Then I’ll sign it to whoever you want and send it off just in time for Christmas or Hannukah.

Let the commenting begin!

    A favourite childhood memory is picking apples with my Aunt Jo and making her homemade applesauce.

    Love the golden one..!
    As for the recipe, I’m truly in love with my dad’s desert, consisting in peeling an apple, and construct a little cage all around with thin bits of pastry an under it, and letting it cook before eating it with some vanilla ice cream..
    Nothing but delicious!!

    My favorite apple recipe is Apple Noodle Kugel – a casserole dish made of egg noodles, cottage cheese, cinnamon, and, of course, apples. Even though this is a Jewish dish, my family makes it every year for Christmas. For me, Apple Noodle Kugel brings good memories of family and the holiday season.

    I like using apples when I make risotto, something tart like a Granny Smith.

    Juicy, tart organic Pink Lady apples make a warm, aromatic, and family-favorite apple crisp! 🙂

      I totally agree that Pink Ladies are an under-appreciated cooking apple. Love them for baking whole, too, since the skin stays nice and pink.

    A nice golden delicious baked with some honey and cinnamon. Always my favorite desert. Simple, but perfect.

    Thanks for the draw, Amy. Crisp, sweet Gala apples, all day!

    Your apple tarte tatin recipe with Dufour puff pastry is delicious and easy and perfect on the apple texture—the second time I made it, I jeujed up the accompanying whipped cream with warm, eggnoggy spices (nutmeg, cardamom, sprinkle of sugar). I’ll bet it’ll work even better once I’m making it from a SIGNED cookbook, tho.

    Best (easy) apple recipe ever comes from my sister Sue, in Easthampton, MA. She posted this on her blog. Yum!

    Gala apples are my favorite!

    I won’t be too original, but I adore Gala apples. Used to eat them by the kilo when I was away from home!

      Jule, Marissa & co., if you like Galas, try Jazz, too. Kind of similar, with a bit more acidity. Good for cooking, too!

    My husband and 7 year old daughter each eat a red delicious apple a day. And my son loves all types of apples as long as they are smeared with almond butter. Personally, I love to bake so trying to get the family to brand out beyond the raw fruit into some sugary goodness!
