“the good neighbor cookbook” giveaway

Many of you know that the reason I got into cooking (and now the reason I blog) is because I so strongly believe in the profound blessing that good food can be when shared with those you love.

So I am truly excited to introduce to you the newly-released cookbook for this week’s giveaway — “The Good Neighbor Cookbook”.  Written by my friends, Suzanne and Sara, this cookbook celebrates the idea that “homemade food is a labor or love, but it need not be laborious”.  Agreed!!  So they have compiled a creative, easy and super-delicious collection of recipes to be shared, organized in chapters such as:

  • Bringing Home Baby
  • Get Well Soon
  • Welcome To The Neighborhood
  • Block Parties and Barbeques
  • Meet and Eat: Community, Religious and Business Gatherings
  • Novel Ideas for Book Clubs
  • Condolences

I love it.  Such a perfect resource to have on hand that overflows with thoughtful, practical cooking inspiration.  So I’m excited to announce that we will be giving away a copy to five Gimme Some Oven readers this week!  Read below for details on how to enter, and definitely check out the book on Amazon, or the Good Neighbor Cookbook website soon!
