I loved the idea of giving away a book or something like Lady Laura and Lindsey and Mary did. Especially since I even received a free book from Mary, I sort of want to pay it forward.
I have here in my hot little hands, the July/August Cooking with Paula Deen magazine. It is still all new and shiny, and I would love to send it to someone (in the U.S., I think). If you are interested, please leave me a comment. Make sure that your email address is either formatted to be read when you leave comments, leave me your email, or I can even contact you on your blog. I will do a drawing on Friday (cut off at noon EDT) and send it out if you are the lucky winner.
I received an offer in the mail for a free copy of this magazine, and a continued subscription if I didn't cancel. I think that I will cancel, mostly because it's $19.98 for 6 issues, and that is steep for me. I love cookbooks and cooking magazines and cooking websites and shows. I'm already receiving Everyday Food (which I got cheap on ebay), and I check out several cookbooks a month from the library, so I think that I don't really need another cooking magazine.
After flipping through it, it does have a lot of recipes--great Paula Deen recipes (I use many of her show recipes, and love them, and conveniently save them online at foodnetwork.com in my own personal recipe box). They seem easy to follow and tasty. She also has many other features, that look like they are regulars--some Southerner profiles, decorating articles, and pics and recipes from her cute sons.
Speaking of her sons, I just watched Road Tasted on Sunday, and it was okay. What I liked better was Bobby Flay's Throwdown which came on right before or after that. Seeing all these "new" shows reminded me that blogging really has taken over from idle TV watching, which is okay.
So, if you want a chance at the magazine, leave me a comment here.
