Red Velvet Lover's Cookbook: Best-Ever Recipes for Everything Red Velvet, with More than 50 Scrumptious Sweets and Treats
12 Days of Christmas Cookbook Giveaways, 2014:
Day 1, Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook
The 12 Days of Christmas start TODAY: on Christmas, December 25. I won’t go into the details here about the theology or the traditions other than to say that (1) yes, the 12 days begin on Christmas (not before) and go through January 5, and (2) often, gifts are given on each day. In keeping with these beliefs and traditions, I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to all readers of Cooks&Books&Recipes by offering a gift on each of the 12 days of Christmas. I’ve selected some of my favorite cookbooks from 2014.
We’re starting with something sweet. As usual. Because sweets and treats kinda go with Christmas. On the First Day of Christmas 2014, our cookbook giveaway is Deborah Harroun’s Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook: Best-Ever Recipes for Everything Red Velvet, with More than 50 Scrumptious Sweets and Treats (Harvard Common Press). If the author’s name sounds familiar, that’s probably because you know her from Taste and Tell, the blog where she shares her recipes and talks about cookbooks (which I love, of course!) and travel. Want to know more about the cookbook? “What People Are Saying about Red Velvet…”
