Giveaway—Heidi Swanson’s “Super Natural Every Day”

The contest is now closed. Thanks everyone for participating.

Congrats to lucky winner Gayle J.

I swore I wouldn’t buy another cookbook. My cookbook collection has grown to just under 100 books and while I can justify adding an Elizabeth David or Diana Kennedy classic to the shelf, I decided to not buy any more books until I could cook at least 5 recipes from each. Then I came across Heidi Swanson’s new book Super Natural Every Day from our local bookstore and well, let’s just say I broke down.

I bought two copies on the spot, one for me and one for you, which means I can make this one exception…plus it was a spontaneous and arbitrary rule anyway.

If you’ve read and cooked from Heidi’s 2007 James Beard Award-nominee Super Natural Cooking or from her blog 101 Cookbooks, then you know how her photographs, recipes, and words lure you into the kitchen. Her unique combination of flavors and whole ingredients exceed expectations of healthy food. Think Macaroon Tart with blackberries, coconut, and pistachios or White Beans and Cabbage with Parmesan, potatoes, and shallots. Simply put, it’s the kind of cooking I aspire to do every day. But often don’t.

For a chance to add Super Natural Every Day to your kitchen, leave me a comment by 12 pm EST on Tuesday, May 3rd for a chance to win. I’ll choose one winner at random. Good luck!

    I have Heidi’s previous cookbook and am totally in love. I’m dying to get my hands on a copy of her latest masterpiece.

    Is there such a thing as too many cookbooks?! I think not! This one looks really interesting….thanks for a chance to win!

    I have Heidi’s previous cookbook and just love it. I have this new one on my wishlist! Fingers crossed!

    Like you, I feel like I should probably pare down my cookbook collection. But I feel like this one has the potential to be one of those essential favorites. (Maybe it’s like that rule about clothes? For ever item you buy/add, you get rid of one?) I love 101 Cookbooks. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    I already own this cookbook, but I love it so much that I want to share it with friends. Besides the fabulous recipes, her photos are stunning and make me want to get into the kitchen!

    I am a faithful Heidi follower. I have never tried any of her recipes that I didn’t like. I too have told myself to stop buying cookbooks but I recently bought another one . . . one that Heidi recommended.

    Oh I so don’t blame you for breaking down, this cookbook looks amazing! After seeing your other post and this giveaway, I headed over to her blog again and noticed her 6 sample recipes from the book. I downloaded them and now I want the book so bad!! If I don’t win it, I think I’ll have to buy it and her first one. Now look what you’ve done :)

    This cook book looks fantastic, and I’ve heard so much about it. I’m a fairly new cook and working on building my cook book library.

    Everyone is raving about this cookbook…I am dying to get my hands on a copy…I keep hoping I will win it in a giveaway but I may end up caving and buying one too hah! recipes look delish and the photos are magnificent!

    This cookbook looks amazing! My husband has put a blockade on new cookbook purchases because we have literally run out of space in our house for them. Free cookbooks and gifts are exempt from this blockade however!

    I found your site in the Hot off the Presses Summer 2011 issue of Artful Blogging magazine and WOW I’m so impressed with your photography AND “salesmanship” hahaha–you made me want this cookbook so badly that I must have a copy one way or another.
    I hope that whoever wins will cherish your gift & make many glorious meals for family & friends & a few for some needy folks, too. Big Smiles, Gracie
