~ Cookbook Giveaway! ~

I've been going through boxes of books and have found many that I won't use anymore. I thought some of you might like a freebie cookbook!  Please disregard the photography...just could not eliminate the glare. Here are the first 3 I'm giving away:
I have soooo many cookbooks from Southern Living and I don't think I've ever used this one.

This is, of course, one of the early Gooseberry Patch books.  It's like new!

 I grabbed several Williams-Sonoma cookbooks when I worked there after retirement. I don't grill outside anymore due to where I live.  Perhaps one of you might like it?

I don't believe in all of the criteria some giveaways require ~ I like to keep it simple!  I'd like for you to be a follower and just leave a comment telling me your favorite dish to cook.  Will announce the winners ~ 3 of you! ~ next Tuesday, 18th. 

Thanks a million for being here and playing along ~

P.S.  If you have a preference re: one of the books, please let me know that too!

  19. Thanks for joining my blog! I consider that quite a compliment after reading all that you do. My goodness! Your recipes look fabulous.
    Bedford, huh... I have two aunts who live there. Nice area.
    Many of our Aggie friends are pilots and their wives flight attendants. When I listen to them talk about some of their experiences I truly admire their professions all the more! My cousin was among the first flight attendants, known as "stewardesses" at the time with Southwest Airlines... white boots and all.
    Love your cookbooks.. I will not confess how many I have. lol!! On top of that I inherited most of my mother's cookbooks. Love it. I'm a real lover of the Southern Living cookbooks!!
    Have a great day and I'll be back. I'm YOUR newest follower now.
