Huzzah! The blog is launched! Mostly it’s just recipes right now, which is going to be the heart of the blog, but I am also going to be posting about all the other things I do. #lifeofapolymath Like sewing three quilts at a time, camping, designing clothing, canning, pets (I may or may not own a zoo… what is the pet to people ratio of a zoo?), and book reviews. But to celebrate the launch, I thought I’d give away one of my favorite cookbooks.
No matter how much I love searching for recipes online, reading blogs about cooking, or watching cooking shows… nothing replaces a good ol’fashioned cookbook. I love just sitting down and flipping through the pages, admiring the photos and reading the stories that go along with them. And I love collecting them, it might not be very KonMari of me, but I love having my shelf full of cookbooks in the corner of my kitchen. When I visit places a cookbook for local cuisine is the top of my list of souveniers.
Two books in particular I find myself turning to again and again.
A very down-to-earth book showing how easy it is to replace store-bought food with homemade. Organized by sections like a grocery store this is my go-to book. You won’t find a ton of meal ideas here, but you will find incredible recipes for everything from yoghurt to icecream, or pasta and pizza sauce.
The book was cultivated from one of my favorite online cooking sites. Filled with how-to’s and a whole section of organizing, stocking and having a functional kitchen it has a bunch of simple and delicious meal ideas. My absolute favorite granola recipe of all time comes from this cookbook, and I’m enjoying working my way through the rest!
The contest opens at midnight and runs for a week. Then I will randomly pick a winner and contact you for shipping details. Thanks for checking out the site and I hope to see you back here soon!

The number of Rafflecopter entries were different than the amount of people who commented on my blog (thank you all by the way!!). In order not to leave anyone out I rolled a d10 (as there were 10 commenters) to get the winner.
And the winner is… Healing Writuals!
