Invitation to Brunch... (An Event with a Giveaway!)

What is better than a new cookbook? A free new cookbook! And what could be even better than that? A free new cookbook and an opportunity to help give someone else a free cookbook too!


Stephanie from Dispensing Happiness and Cath from A Blithe Palate are co-hosting a new edition of Cookbook Spotlight on April 17 with Gale Gand’s newest book. 

Cookbook Spotlight is an event where food bloggers select recipes from the same cookbook, make the dish, and blog about it. It is followed with a round up of everyone's choices and pictures. It’s always fun and interesting to see what different people pick to cook or bake from the same book.

This go-round Cookbook Spotlight has been offered a chance to cook from Gale’s new book, Gale Gand’s Brunch! I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to participate and luckier still, I have been offered an extra book and would like to invite one of you to participate too.

If you would like to join this food blogging event, please send me an email at Debinhawaii@gmail.com with your snail mail address (one the publisher can ship a book to) by noon EST on Friday, March 27. (
That's 9:00 AM PST & 6:00 AM HST). Bonus Entry: If you also leave a comment on this post and tell me what is your favorite food for brunch, that will count as a second entry. Max and I will randomly select one person to join us for the event and win a free cookbook. If you don’t have a blog but would like to participate, I’ll be happy to post your blog entry here.

Look for the event on April 17 and the round up on April 20!  This will be a quick turn around but loads of fun!

Don't forget to email me with your shipping address if you want a chance to win the book. We have to get them to the publisher by Friday!


(Oh yeah, Max will be a HUGE help in selecting the winner!)

Is Australia too far? I would love to participate. And my favourite brunch food? Seriously wicked french toast made with croissants. Not to be eaten more than once or twice per decade!

Of course! I love all things brunch...but I'll go with a big strata...filled with seasonal ingredients. And a mimosa. Or 3.

My favorite brunch is fresh fruit salad, blueberry pancakes and lots of hot coffee.

Sounds like fun!

I would love to participate in the event. Thank you for the opportunity. My favorite brunch food would be Crabcakes Benedict. A restaurant where we used to live made a version that was amazing. Too bad you can't find anything remotely close in ND.

That cover picture alone would be enough to sell me the cookbook - yum! (Sent you email)

This sounds like so much fun! I can't wait to read about what you all are cooking up!

Bummer, I'll be on a plane returning from Florida. Sounds like a great event, though.

What a great event, I can't wait. I love Gale Gand and I love brunch too! I think my favorite brunch is a lazy Sunday waffle feast with lots of good fresh fruit and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice! Yum!!

My favorite brunch dish would have to be whatever that is on the cover! Wow!
