3 Days of Giveaways! Two Great Cookbooks!

I love a good cookbook.  It might be bordering on obsession.  They don't all fit in my kitchen anymore, so I've started storing some in a dresser in our guest room.  Wanna come visit?

Today, let's take a look at two cookbooks that were published this year that we haven't talked about yet on the blog.
1. A Year of Pies: A Seasonal Tour of Home Baked Pies by Ashley English

Well, if you love pie...and you need this book.  Not only is it a book of sweet pies, but savory as well.  The book is divided by season, featuring seasonal ingredients at their peak.

Gingersnap Key Lime pie?  Mushroom & Chevre Galette?  Yes, please.

Ashley also walks you through the crust-making process...and offers really great tips on making pretty crusts.  I don't know about you, but I need help in that department.

It may be the middle of December, but I'm already dreaming of this frozen strawberry pie.

2. The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook: Cookies, Cakes, Candies, and More! by Lindsay Landis

I tried to resist buying this book.  You see, I'm not just a cookie dough lover, I'm a cookie dough LOOOOOVER.  I'd eat a bowl of dough over a regular ol' cookie just about any day.  So, I was afraid for my waistline.  Very, very afraid.  So, I just admired it from afar.

Then, I met the adorable Lindsay, and her equally adorable husband, and thought, "waistline be darned...I'm buying that book."

Oh!  Can we talk about Cookie Dough Cream Pie?

Or...Cookie Dough Brownies and Cookie Dough Swirl Marshmallows?

Maybe it's not the best book for my waistline, but it's good for my SOUL.
