in Contests / Giveaways

Over the next few weeks I’ll be giving away 5 sets of brand new cookbooks, direct from the Erin Cooks bookshelf, that I’ve grouped into cute themes. Don’t worry I’ll dust them off before I send them out to the lucky winners. 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.

Party Duo

With the holidays bursting into full gear next week I thought you might like a few new tips and tricks to add to your entertaining repertoire.

Great Party Fondue by Peggy Fallon is filled with delicious and unique fondue recipes perfect for any gathering, while Party Confidential: New Etiquette for Fabulous Entertaining is a sassy guide for the up and coming hostess with the mostess.

To win the “Pink and Cheesy Party 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, November 26th at noon. Good Luck!

[Love to HΓ€nni for christening this contest with such an adorable name].

Erin! Please sign me up for the drawing. I love fondue so much, it should be a crime. (But if loving fondue is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.)

23 Whitney November 21, 2008 at 1:42 pm

Can you believe that I have never tried fondue? I know…criminal.

31 Kerri Anne November 21, 2008 at 6:11 pm

The first and only time I made fondue it was (awesome! and) for my babycarrot sister’s bachelorette party. I’m not quite sure there is anything better than scrumptious morsels on a stick dipped into something piping hot, be it cheese or chocolate.

32 Farina November 21, 2008 at 6:15 pm

Never had fondue before so I am in! πŸ™‚

The perfect excuse to buy a fondue set…

35 Kim November 21, 2008 at 7:52 pm

We actually have a fondue pot. We don’t use it often, but it’s definitely been a family dinner on a few occasions.

36 Erin November 21, 2008 at 8:10 pm

I’ve been really wanting a fondue pot – great book picks!

37 sharon November 21, 2008 at 8:27 pm

Hmm, I love both cheese, pink, and parties so this giveaway is just right for me! πŸ™‚

38 grace November 22, 2008 at 4:02 am

39 homedotmade November 22, 2008 at 6:54 am

42 Rachel November 22, 2008 at 2:56 pm

I would love this cookbook! It looks great!

43 Lys November 22, 2008 at 8:33 pm

Erin – I’m a fondue newbie so this should be interesting (and, yes, I know – I haven’t met the pizza challenge yet. Will do after the holiday πŸ™‚ )

Thanks for the contest!!

44 Emily November 23, 2008 at 4:28 pm

My boyfriend and I just went to the Melting Pot last week for the first time. It was amazing! So it would be great to be able to create fondue at home, without spending all that money going out to eat.

45 Isabelle November 24, 2008 at 1:12 am

Sounds like fun. Maybe my friends would enjoy a great retro fondue party over Christmas vacation. Thanks for the contest!

46 Pam November 24, 2008 at 9:02 am

I love fondue, but I hate paying the big bucks for it when I go out. I’d love to learn to make it at home.

47 Hillary November 24, 2008 at 11:33 am

Love the theme! Would love to win this contest. Thanks for the opportunity.

Great name and great give-a-way. I love cooking, entertaining and fondue!

49 Tammy November 24, 2008 at 6:53 pm

Cookbooks are my downfall! I LOVE them! πŸ™‚

50 Natasha November 25, 2008 at 12:29 am

Mmm, I love fondue – it’s awesome, I think my fave has got to be the good old beer and cheese combo…

51 Elle November 25, 2008 at 11:12 am

Oh, nice giveaway, Erin! And it’s got pink in it, what could be better?

52 Claire November 25, 2008 at 11:21 am
