Win a copy of Food to Live By

[I've moved to http://milkandhoneymommy.com/. Please visit me there!]

I've got a secret and I want to share...Cooking has become an enjoyment (I won't say passion, yet) and I love cookbooks and pretty pictures of food. They inspire me to cook and as a result, my family has been eating more healthy for several years. We have tried many a meal based on a picture I saw. Reading a recipe title doesn't always work for me. Now that I think about it, I don't try a recipe unless there is a picture attached. I also don't make anything unless I have a recipe because I need to know exact measurements of ingredients. One day, I hope to be skilled enough to grab a spice container in each hand and shake away with no recipe reference at all. Until then, I'll to have to use good cookbooks with pretty pictures and recipes that “look” delicious.

Myra Goodman inspires me to cook. When reading through Food to Live By, you too may get inspired. Myra and her husband are the owners of Earthbound Farm, the “world’s largest grower of organic produce.” You may have even purchased their organic salads, fruits, and vegetables from your local grocery store or been treated to them at your favorite green or vegetarian restaurant. Reading their story may even send you running outside, rake in hand, organic seeds in the other ready to start planting your own organic vegetable garden.

I would like to give one lucky winner the opportunity to be inspired and cook Food to Live By and also be inspired to cook.

Bananas are my favorite fruit. They are so versatile and a good meal or snack on the run. For an extra special treat, I will eat a banana and a piece of nice dark chocolate. Mmmmmmm.

The banana/chocolate combination sounds pretty good. The simple pleasure tastes in life. I guess I should say what is my favorite fruit or vegetable. I really enjoy strawberries (http://greenandnaturalmommy.blogspot.com/2008/05/strawberriesdes-mexico.html) . I'm not too creative w/preparation. I rinse and eat.

I would love to be inspired and cook recipes out of this cookbook!
I love cooking with Bell Peppers and carrots making casseroles with both!

This sounds like a great cookbook! As a *strict* vegetarian, I'm always looking for fun new recipes.

We planted a lot of eggplant in our garden this year, so I would be all for learning new ways to prepare it!

I am a huge fan of roma tomatoes. My 3 yo and I plant them and love making fresh spaghetti sauce and other pasta dishes with them!
