For Love

This giveaway is closed.  Go here to see who won!


To show my love for all you precious people being patient with me as my blogging has slowed (it's only temporary!), I wanted to give you a gift.  I wish I could give you each one.
all cookbooks now have a clear, protective plastic cover!

So today, I'm offering a copy of my cookbook (signed, if you like) to one reader.  To enter, please leave me a comment, letting me know which recipe of mine you've tried and enjoyed (many are posted right here).  Do you have a favorite?  If you haven't tried any, you can just be honest and tell me that and you'll still be entered. Just one entry per household and please leave me your first name or initials which will help me identify you if you win.

This will be a quick one- the winner will be randomly drawn this Friday afternoon!

Best of luck to all of you and thank you, thank you, thank you for your kindness via comments and personal emails.  Each one is precious to me- you all are so dear!

Love,
Jane

  10. Pickled Beets! I grew beets I my garden and was surprised at how much I liked them. I also got the idea from you to make my tomato sauce with the skins on, and freeze my spinach without blanching it. Huge timesavers!

  43. Last year it was starting to get cold and I still had lots of green tomatoes. Found your recipe for Curried Green Tomato Sauce (page 159) and it was not only delicious, but a great way to use all those tomatoes before the frost got them. I liked the idea of freezing the extra for a quick addition to a meal. My family also loves the Wacky Cake (page 111). It's quick and easy and has even been requested for birthdays. I've referred to the preserving section many times and love that the instructions direct me to the recipes. Great cookbook with simple, tasty and inexpensive recipes.

  44. I haven't tried any yet, but reading everyone's comments has made my mouth water and I would enjoy making anyone of the recipes your book!:) very sweet giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Jane,

    I have adopted your idea of making pie crusts ahead of time and storing them in the freezer. I LOVE having crusts all ready to go for meat pies, fruit pies, cream pies. Thanks for the most helpful tip! I already have your fabulous cookbook, but would love to give one to my sister!

    Blessings,

    Katie

    ReplyDelete
  48. I reference your page quite often as I've been canning for only the past 4 years. This year for Christmas my husband got me a strainer similar to yours for apple-sauce making...I cannot wait to use it!! :) In addition to canning, I recently tried your ham pot-pie (was searching for a recipe to use leftover ham) which we really enjoyed! A.L.R.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Your zucchini bread is definitely a family favorite around here!! I have had your cookbook on my wishlist for a while now...here's hoping :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love your blog! We have the baked oatmeal at least weekly.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have not tried one of your recipes yet, but I was tempted to try the Easter egg recipe from one of your blog postings. They are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  52. We have tried and loved your bean enchiladas. We make them often (with our own adaptions).
    They are a staple in our house.

  53. I came across your blog not to long ago, and haven't tried your recipes.

  55. I haven't tried any of your recipes just yet. But... I am thinking that I will have to try the Cherry Vanilla Ricotta Muffins first!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have tried several of you recipes......all wonderful! I have especially enjoyed the Pumpkin Streusel Bread, Grandma's Granola and the Sloppy Joe's (which I made w/ cooked ground beef and it was great!). I was blessed w/ a copy of your cookbook for Christmas (thanks Mom & Dad!), but I would love to win one for a dear friend. :-) Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm also a fan of the bean enchiladas - YUM! Thanks for your dedication to blogging - I enjoy reading!

  58. I love your baked oatmeal recipe. I have never liked oatmeal for breakfast because of the texture, but your baked version is super! We make it with frozen fruit (blueberries, peaches, or strawberries) in winter and fresh fruit in summer. Really good!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I tried your peanut butter cookie recipe.They are just too fabulously delicious!!! We couldn't leave them alone and they disappeared too quickly. Shirl ~ PA

    ReplyDelete
  60. I have tried a lot of your recipes. Whenever I am looking for something new I first check your cookbook :). I've tried your pie crust and quiche recipe, peanut butter vegetable soup, classic tomato soup, ice cream sandwich cake (the official birthday cake for my seven year old) and others. If I won a cookbook I would gift it to a friend!

  61. We love Mexican food so the salsa recipe is one I would try. Thank you for this offer!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have tried several things, but the meatballs with sausage were a hit here. I have made my own tomato sauce for years, but loved your canning tips which I added to my arsenal. Having tomato sauce on hand is so helpful to me, but since I have carnivore's in my home, in the form of my husband and two teenage boys, and actually my little 7 year old girl too, it sure is nice to make a fast meal and all I have to do is cook pasta, and heat some frozen meatballs! Love it! I work from my home as a computer tech, and running a household of 6, a chicken flock of 20, a huge garden and a concord grape vineyard is a lot to do, so managing all that a girl needs some time savers at meal time! You have given me loads of ideas to keep things simple so we can focus on the important things in life! Thank you! PS I ordered 2 cookbooks for Christmas gifts, big hits!

    ReplyDelete
  63. The one I use the most is your white bean enchiladas - but my favourite is Curried Chicken Pot Pie - I'm in Australia though so feel free to not include me in the competition - I'll buy a cookbook soon anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've use quite a few of your recipes, and they've all been good except...the Mrs. Davey Funk Cake!!! But that was my fault. I misread the recipe and kept aside 3/4 of the dry mix to use as strudel, instead of only 3/4 CUP of it! Funnily enough, we still ate the cake, even though the texture was weird. It was very yummy with marmalade drizzled all over. I look forward to getting it right. Thanks for all that you share here! God Bless!

  65. The pesto torte always gets compliments and I just made the crock- pot venison sloppy joes.

  66. I love the roasted tomato recipe. I "used" to like sun dried tomatoes, but now I am officially addicted to the roasted tomatoes. We have a 99 cent only store that has had some wonderful tomatoes that end up spending the night in my oven! I love your blog and pray for you often. Keep up the good work and God bless!

  67. We like your granola - and can't wait until spring for more garden posts. But enjoy the snow in the meantime.

  68. I canned your tomato soup recipe this past fall. My daughter who hates soup loves it! We also enjoy the brownie/peanut butter oat bars.

    Thanks, LeeAnn

  74. Well, I came to your blog to write down the recipe you recently gave for venison sloppy joes, but I've made several other recipes from your site. I use one of your stew recipes most, but I also like one that has beans and rice and spinach in it.

    ReplyDelete
  75. The veggie burrito bake—hands-down, one of my favorite meals! My mom made it, and we have since made it many times.

  77. I confess I have not tried any recipes, BUT, I did hint (broadly!) to my husband that your cookbook would be a lovely Christmas present. Alas, no book was found under the tree, but then it's not all about the gifts, is it? I still hope to get one, especially before canning season. Love your blog! Laura R.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oooohhhh....I'd love to win! (I can even give a US address to you to keep things simple if I do.) :) I tried your Calzones and they were a hit all around. I so appreciate you my friend. Hugs, Camille

  83. We LOVE the chicken chimichangas.

  84. We love your cilantro pesto. I think I made six batches last year and its long gone. My husband's favorite bars are the lemon bars.
    Crystal H.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I've enjoyed trying a handful of your recipes so far and I have requests from my oldest girls for what to try next. A favorite around here is your upside down pear gingerbread. We pop it into the oven when we sit down for dinner and then eat it warm after clearing the dinner dishes. Every time we have guests for dinner my husband asks if we are having that gingerbread. And the leftovers (if there are any) are my treat for being the first one up. So yummy with a cup of tea or coffee. Thanks for the chance to win your cookbook! It has been on my wish list for a little while now. Andrea M.

  86. We make your sweet potato pie regularly- it's delicious!

  88. The zucchini bread is a fave! In the summer, we are swimming in it, and baking and freezing the zucchini bread provides a treat all winter-long. ~ Maranda D

    ReplyDelete
  89. My husband and I make your quiche nearly once a week, and then have it as leftover lunches for two days. We put lots of our veggies from our freezer in it! Zucchini, sweet corn, broccoli, chard, snap peas, whatever we feel like!

    It is SO yummy. I would love a copy of your cookbook. It's on my wish list!

  90. I haven't tried any of your recipes yet - I'm rather new to your blog - but I actually came here today looking for recipes and inspiration for a meal I need to serve to visitors tomorrow evening.

  91. Our favorite recipe is the quiche. In fact, last night I asked my husband if he wouldn't mind making it because I was working late. It smelled, looked, and tasted delicious. It is also very easy to make and a perfect recipe utilizing our hens' eggs.

  92. The White Bean Enchiladas were a big hit with my family. -Becky R.

  93. I haven't used any of your recipes yet, but read very carefully your canning info. I am hoping to try tattler lids this year. I have a pressure canner still in the box that I haven't tried yet ... maybe this will be the year for that adventure. Farm mom 100

    ReplyDelete
  97. This week, I made the {Much-More-Exciting-Than-it-Sounds} Rice, Bean, and Spinach Salad and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! It is very similar to an Afghan dish my sister makes, only she uses roast beef... so I'm going to try that with your recipe the next time. It was great leftover too, cold or warm! I've also appreciated your Basic Tomato Sauce recipe in the summer!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I have been home on maternity leave for the last 2 months and am now addicted to yours and Mavis' blogs, all those late night feedings with my new addition (also Sadie like yours!). I love the granola, and have your pumpkin bread marked to do tomorrow. I appreciate your mission, that you are frugal with a purpose, as we strive to be. May God continue to bless you and your family. Amber

  99. The apple bread and applesauce are both favourites of ours. MaryW

  100. I haven't tried any, actually. But you certainly have a large variety of ones to choose from! Thanks. :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. I do not have your book (yet) but I see there is a recipe for Sour Cherry Pie. That is my favorite pie. I grew up in NJ with a sour cherry tree in my yard. It never really produced enough for a pie but my mother would make a sauce for vanilla ice cream with them. They are hard to find here in Alabama and I always seem to get to NJ before or after sour cherry season (it is short). I am on a quest to get my hands on some sour cherries and make this pie.
