The Keep it Simple Duo

Even when it’s not a major holiday season everyone is busy. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done that we’d like and often this means that what goes onto our dinner table suffers. Three loads of laundry, the gym, and a tivoed episode of Gossip Girl all sound like a better use of time than making a meal. So what do we do? Why we dial Papa Johns and call it a day. Beatrice Ojakangas has a better idea. In fact she actually has 500 fabulous casserole recipes to tempt you away from delivery and get you back into the kitchen. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even desserts are all covered in this tome dedicated to the ultimate, and possibly the original form of comfort food. The Best Casserole Cookbook Ever just might get the pizza man off of speed dial forever.

After you start saving oodles of time whipping up savory casseroles for your weeknight meals I’m sure you’ll want to plan a little soiree for your closest friends and family. In Entertaining Simple Matthew Mead will guide you through the step-by-step process of throwing an easygoing party that wont make you want to pull your hair out at the roots or blow your budget. This helpful book contains themed recipes and serving ideas for a number of intimate party scenarios. I suggest you start writing out that guest list now.

To win the “Keep it Simple Duo” all you have to do is leave a comment on this post (one comment per person please). A winner will be selected via the nifty random number generator on Wednesday, December 10th at noon. PS: You never know when these giveaways will pop up online so it might be in your best interest to subscribe to the Erin Cooks feed either via email or rss.
