My fiance is obsessed with Alaska, so I would cook him something out of this cookbook.

I love cookbooks, as you all do. This one looks so interesting. I don't think I will ever afford to get to Alaska, but the foods look wonderful.

Beverly said...

Well, I had a comment all written out and it didn't post so if this is a duplicate I'm sorry.
Of course, I would love a chance at winning the cookbook. I don't have any cookbooks from Alaska. My favorite cookbook is a community cookbook call Plum Good put out by the Christ Child Society of Cleveland, Ohio.

HI!

I think an Alaskan cookbook would be great! I bet there are a lot of excellent seafood recipes in there. My folks live in Seattle and sharing with my Mom would be awesome. :)

Someday I'd like to go back to Alaska. The one last family vacation with I was when in high school was to Alaska and we had an excellent time visiting glaciers.

I would love to see what recipes are popular in Alaska, and I always need something new to cook. Great giveaway idea, thanks for the chance to enter!

flmom said...

Greetings from sunny FL! One of my favorite cookbooks is a Southern Living one I purchased about 16 years ago after graduating from college. I've kept it all this time and it's made every move around GA, Maui, and FL with me. It has a wonderful banana bread recipe ... that particular page is quite stained!

paula h said...

I love cook books. My favorite for crockpot cooking is Fix It and Forget IT and Fix It and Forget It For Entertaining. For desserts I use the 101 Things to Do With a Cake Mix.

leigh said...

i love alaska and would love to make some things to remind me

ChocolateQueen said...

I don't own a cookbook from Alaska. So, if I got this one the first thing I would do is read it cover to cover while soaking in the bathrub. Then I would bake some muffins, cookies or a bread from it!

KathyJ said...

Hi Mo!
I only recently picked up my first Alaska cookbook, so this would be a nice addition. I love sourdough recipes and the Sourdough Strawberry Waffles sound good - I would have to try those.... It’s too hard to pick a favorite cookbook, but I wouldn’t want to lose my copy of Eet Smakelijk from the Junior League of Holland, MI.

Mmm, sourdough strawberry waffles! I would make those!!

I'm in CT, but "from" all over. including being born in Fairbanks, Alaska...

Beverly said...

Oh I love cookbooks and I'm sooo excited you are giving one away. My husband and I live in Texas and we have always dreamed of taking a cruise to Alaska! One of these days I will make that trip!!!

I love cooking with the family cookbooks and church cookbooks I have collected. Those recipes are tried and true and I know my family will not be disappointed with a new recipe I try!

Oh I hope I win this cookbook! Thanks.

PS said...

HI! This looks like a great cookbook!

PS said...

My favorite cookbook is Southern Style cooking. I'm from the midwest, but those recipes are so good and simple!

michelle said...

Wow! Someone who enjoys cookbooks as much as I do. I know this sounds crazy, but I recently went through my cookbooks and got rid of two shelves worth of them. Not because they weren't good, but because I just didn't use them anymore. Most of them were from before I started cooking and the recipes weren't very great. My new favourite cookbooks are anything by America's Test Kitchen or Cook's Illustrated. My family raves every time I cook them something from one of those books.

Thanks so much for the giveaway.

Hi there! Would love to win your cookbook. I adore cookbooks too!

I think I'd like to try the sourdough Strawberry Waffles. We like to try different kinds of waffles. My favorite cookbook might just be one that our church put together years ago - my friends have recipes in there!

This would be great. My brother-in-law lived in Alaska for a year working and I could invite my sister and him over for an Alaska meal. I guess I don't know what that would be but would love to find out.

Thanks for the great contest!

Tabby said...

The sourdough strawberry pancakes sound amazing! My husband has had his sourdough starter for almost 15years now. To be honest, if I were to win the cookbook I probably would just thumb through it and mark my favorites and then give it to my husband. He's the cook in the family. I take care of the laundry and the dishes. We're all happy with the arrangement!

greenly said...

I love collecting cookbooks. I'm really liking "Simply in Season" right now--lots of healthy, simple, delicious, recipes using fruits & veggies that are seasonal.

This looks like a great cookbook, I love learning about a region from its recipes

Stacey said...

"Hi!"

I love cookbooks. I come from a family that enjoys reading them as much as using them (perhaps more).

My favorites are my Moosewood, Extending the Table, Better Homes & Garden, and the collections of my grandmothers recipes that I am working on putting into the computer.

Carla said...

What a fun giveaway. I am never one to pass up a cookbook. Regional cookbooks are so fun. We were trying desperately to go to Alaska, but instead the military sent us to ND. Not the quite same! I'd enjoy cooking from this book and getting a taste of what we missed.

Audrey said...

I love cookbooks and Ive never heard of this one. Thanks!

Thanks for the offer! I have a cookbook fetish, too, and my favorite one lately is David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop. (All about ice cream. Mmm.)

Tina said...

Hi, My parents moved to Alaska a couple years ago and I still haven't made it there to visit. tinawittmer(at)yahoo(dot)com

Blessed said...

I love cookbooks!

So I would add this one to my library and would use it!

fivewinks said...

My parents have traveled to Alaska several times (without me). They always rave about the food. My favorite cookbooks are the church cookbooks, you know the ones where everyone submits their favorite recipes. The best of the best.

I don't have an Alaskan cookbook. :) You can tell the cookbook I use the most, because the front cover is missing, and certain pages are stuck together. lol I have an interesting assortment ofbooks- including a Top Ramen cookbook.

Playful Professional said...

My favorite cookbook is one with only a few ingredients in it. It makes for some easy recipes. I like one that has lots of ingredients too :)

Hi, This is Deb from Hawaii. I would love to win the book because I have a large collection of cookbooks and this would go well there and also, like Alaska, we are not in the continental US either. I have too many favorites to pick one but I love my vintage cookbooks the most!

KJ said...

GREETINGS! This would be fun to have! I would love to go there, too. Is the trip included? Ok, I tried...

Teri said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I love Rachael Ray's cookbooks, but I cautiously choose the recipes that don't have a ton of ingredients and don't take a ton of mixing bowls or dishes...

Laura said...

My favorite cookbook is definitely Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. I've never found a bad recipe in it.
