The Silver Palate Cookbooks

When I was a newlywed, there were two cookbooks in my repertoire that consistently produced company worthy dishes. The Silver Palate and The New Basics Cookbook offered gourmet, yet approachable recipes. Recently I made the magnificent white chocolate mousse pictured above, and their carrot cake is still my go-to recipe. I’m offering both of these classic cookbooks to one of my readers.

I won’t share the shadowy photo of my carrot cake (note to self: make that dreamy dessert again and photograph in natural light!), but I did make a strata using these cookbooks as inspiration. So, I’m sure you’re wondering how to win. First of all this giveaway is open to those in the US and Canada, 18 years and older. All you have to do is leave me a comment following the prompt in the Rafflecopter.
