Giveaway: Deceptively Delicious Cookbooks!!

Soooo, yeah...have you guys heard of this book...


...Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. It's one of my favorite cookbooks. Especially handy if you puree or pureed baby food for your little one and have any leftovers in the freezer or if you just like to keep pureed foods on hand. There are so many yummy recipes in here as well as just all around great ideas for doing your own thing.

Here, just take a look inside:

Oooh, this is my most favorite recipe from the book, Jessica's Doughnut Recipe!! And not just any donuts but healthy pumpkin/sweet potato donuts that are baked.in.the.oven. Seriously, soooo freakin' good. I make these for play dates a lot and there hasn't been a kid yet to turn these babies down...for reals!

What else is in there you ask?

Well, let me just show you...

Yuppers, there are great easy dinner recipes...and breakfast and lunch and dessert-y recipes too. This Grilled Cheese Recipe uses a puree that sounds SO weird but tastes SO good. Noah and Penny eat them up the minute the plate hits the table...now what momma wouldn't love to see that at lunch or dinner?

Anyways, my birthday is coming up on Saturday...yup, another year older and hopefully wiser :) So, I personally went out and bought two, count 'em two, of these books to give away to two of you to celebrate getting older and, of course, to thank you for coming by and reading my blog and following my crazy life and all my crazy projects.

All you have to do to enter is:

1. Leave a comment...that's it!
2. If you follow my blog you can get another chance to win too...Holla!
3. AND, since it's my birthday give away, you can even have another chance to win...just follow me on Twitter (SmshedPNCarrots)...Yeah, I'm on there and getting the hang of it...slow-ly!

I'll have my bud, the Random Number Generator pick TWO winners on my lovely Birthday, the best day of the year, right?

Saturday, June 26 at 8 am CST.


Good Luck Friends!!
