A Winning Cookbook

This is Suzie Ridler, blogger and foodie extrodinaire who has one of my favorite blogs -- SuzietheFoodie. She's from Halifax, NS and describes herself as "Foodie, writer, photographer, reviewer and self-taught cook and baker. Welcome to my test kitchen."
.
She recently hosted a cookbook giveaway with fellow Haligonian Shelagh Duffett who posts another of my favorite blogs, Alice in Paris Loves Art and Tea.
.
Guess who won the giveaway? Moi!! And what a gem of a little cookbook!.
I was pleased to have won, of course. But upon looking through the book last night, I am extremely pleased. It's chock-a-block of great recipes like these:
  • Sun Dried Tomato Pesto on Brie (Emmmm)
  • Romaine and Mandarin Salad (Yum yum)
  • Nova Scotia Vegetable Hodge Podge (Slurp)
  • Luscious Ginger Cake with Crystallised Ginger Cream Frosting (OMG!)
I was salivating all over my nightie as I read through it in bed. Yum!
.
However, I have to wait to try the recipes as I begin my vacation tonight. But if I've excited your salivary glands and you simply cannot wait for me, Suzie has highlighted a couple of the recipes on her blog.
.
Even better, you can pick up a copy of Shelagh's book for yourself here at Amazon:
.
A huge THANK YOU to both Suzie and Shelagh.
.
I'm looking forward to working my way through the cookbook once I return.
