Bite Me! - Cookbook Giveaway (ends 7/9)

Tuesday, June 29, 2010 Posted by One 2 Try


Bite me: A Stomach-Satisfying, Visually Gratifying, Fresh Mouthed Cookbook.
There is no better way to descibe this incredibly fun cookbook! Bite me is written by Julie Albert and Lisa Gnat, two self proclaimed, not-so sweet, tiny-bit-salty sisters. With such a bold title, Bite me, I knew I was in for a sassy time and great recipes.

The saucy sisters share a deep love of food along with lots of fun! The collaboration of the two in Bite Me, makes eating and entertaining easy. Julie and Lisa compliment each other in what they do best. Julie does the computer work and Lisa shows her how to cook.

The recipes in Bite me are for the everyday cook. In here you will find 175 great tastes and easy meals to make for every taste. You will find the answer to "what's for dinner?" Classic yummy fantastically presented real recipes. Browsing through Bite me, I have found a smorgasbord of recipes screaming for my family to eat. Bite me is more than great foods, it is a lot of fun to read.

Take a gander at some of the categories:
Grab Me - Appetizers
Spoon Me - Soups
unDress me - Salads
Respect me - Vegetables
Fork me - Dessert.

Yes the book is sassy fun. Adding to the fun are many photos of the recipes and craziness shots (after all the title of the book is Bite me!) I enjoyed the little Bite Me Bits that are quotes of food wisdom placed throughout the book. One of my fave is - Did you know that "go hang a salami" and "I'm a lasagna hog" read the same spelled backwards? Interesting.

Back to the recipes. I am dying to make the Southwestern Chicken Corn Chowder made with creamed corn and corn kernels in a creamy cheese chowder. It sounds delish for a cold fall evening. For a salad - try the Appel Koolsla (apple coleslaw) made with granny smith apples 2 kinds of cabbage, cherries, mango and spiced pecans tossed in a vinegar dijon mustard dressing. Delish. I am making this coleslaw for my 4th of July famiy get together. My guys are meat lovers so I had to browse the beef recipes. H-Crusted Beef Tenderloin with lots of fresh herbs coating the beef, has them drooling. For something different - Sunshine Pineapple meatballs. Are you serious? They are sweet and sour meatballs made with a scrumptious pineapple sauce. These would be great for parties! It just would not be me if I left out dessert. I am salivating over the Indoor S'mores - a layered dessert with all the good ingredients of classic s'mores. Just get me a spoon and we are good to go!

Bite me has been a joy for me from cover to cover. These two sisters really have something here. You can watch the saucy sisters on Watch me from their website. The website also features Make me with recipes to try. The site is just as enjoyable as the book. Considering purchasing Bite me? You can order directly from Indigo. Keep in mind it is a Canadian shop and they do ship to the United States.
