Thanks so much for everyone who took the time to send me emails and leave such lovely comments on my blog. It’s been such aÂ great trun out and I’ve had so much fun reading your feedback, that I think I should have these giveaways more often!Â It’s been a long wait, but we finally have our lucky winners!
Each of these lucky winners get a copy of the cookbook listed by their names:
Nigella Express, by Nigella Lawson: Jackie, who said, “Iâ€™ve tried many of your recipes and enjoyed everyone! I started visiting your site a year ago, and have been stopping by each week since then. Keep up the great work!”
Curries & Kebabs, by Madhur Jaffrey: Susie, who Said, “If there was one thing I would suggest, then it would only be to post more often. Your writing has got me hooked and I canâ€™t help wanting to read more of what you have to say. You have one of the best food blogs Iâ€™ve come across.”
Adventures of an Italian Food Lover, by Faith Willinger: Tina, who said, “I love the way you write! Iâ€™ve tried some of your recipes and have simply loved each and everyone of them. Thanks a ton!”
Dish Entertains, by Trish Magwood: Danielle, who said, “Heya! Well, as you probably know, I love your recipes, your photography, and the way your personality comes through in your writing. Thereâ€™s nothing I donâ€™t like! As for the months ahead, although Iâ€™m not one to talk, the only thing I could dream of asking for is for you to post more often.”
Barefoot Contessa at Home, by Ina Garten: Anita, who said, “Ohh!! What a lovely way to get us lurkers out of hiding and finally saying hello! I love your writing style and your recipes have always worked out amazing for me. I look forward to many more insightful posts and delicious recipes in the future. Keep up the great work!”
Indian Everyday, by Anjum Anand: Kimmie, who said, “You have way with words, itâ€™s almost as if Iâ€™m right there listening to you as you speak. And your food makes it even better!”
Each of these lucky winners get a prize hamper with six spice bottles each, from The Spice Depot:
Dawn, who said, “Yippee! Happy Holidays! Iâ€™ve been an avid lurker for a bit of time now. Your posts always inspire me to get out of my â€œItalianâ€ comfort zone and try something new. So, win or lose, just wanted to send a heartfelt THANK YOU!”
Jamie, who said, “I love this blog! The food always looks delicious and is often either already vegan or is easily veganizable. I love how even the simplest recipes always come out delicious. Please, keep blogging for ages to come!”
Marn, who said, “Iâ€™ve loved Indian cooking since my university days in Ottawa over 30 years ago. Stumbling into your blog and finding recipes that I can make myself has been fabulous. Iâ€™ve been exploring the blogs you link to, and one of the frustrations for someone such as me who isnâ€™t from India is that many Indian terms are used for spices, terms we donâ€™t use in Canada. I would be eternally grateful if you could create a glossary of sorts for those of us who donâ€™t know these words. As well, because I live in rural Quebec, some of the ingredients are impossible for me to find. If there are equivalents I could substitute for certain dals, I would love to know that. Thank you for this great resource. Thereâ€™s nothing more comforting on a cold evening than a bowl of savoury dhal.”
Tiana, who said, “My favorite thing about HOH is that itâ€™s obvious you have tried the recipes and adjusted them to perfection. Your tips make it really easy to learn to cook this cuisine and the way you write your posts is entertaining and also very accessible. As far as what I donâ€™t likeâ€¦not much! Iâ€™m a vegetarian so Iâ€™d like to see more meet-free recipes but there are plenty of those already. Happy Holidays!”
Congrats everyone! Each of your prizes are on their way to your day as you read this!
Here’s wishing all of you out there, a wonderfully faboulous Holiday Season! See you in the New Year!
