Cookbook Swap!

Ok ladies, it's a new year...I don't know about you, but I think it's time for me to shake things up and add a few new recipes to my repertoire! I have been looking for new cookbooks and I always find myself loving Junior League cookbooks. I have several from Dallas, Austin, Houston, Boston, etc and they always have the best recipes.

In deciding which cookbook would be my next purchase I decided it would be fun to have a JL cookbook from another state that someone else just loves! So, why not do a swap?? I'm sure you'd all love a new cookbook too!

Here's the 411...
  • Put your name, e-mail address and where you live in the comment section. EX: Tiffany- lifeisglamandfab@gmail.com - Austin, TX
  • I'll take names until Monday, January 24th @ midnight CST
  • On Tuesday, I will pair everyone up and e-mail you your partner's e-mail info so you can get in touch and swap addresses.
  • You will buy a local Junior League Cookbook and mail it to your partner and they will do the same!
  • I will pair you with someone in a different area so you get a cookbook from somewhere fun!
  • Please have all cookbooks mailed by February 15th so your partner can have their new cookbook in good time!
  • Update: Someone e-mailed me and said they do not have a local JL chapter...so my suggestion would be Amazon. :) You can pick one that is closest to you or most closely matches food in your part of the country. I sure don't want that to stop you from playing.

It will be so fun and I hope you'll all participate! Feel free to twitter, e-mail, post about this swap, etc. The more the merrier! Bon appetite!!

Here are a few of the JL cookbooks from Texas cities. These are 3 of my favorites...Just think...maybe you'll get paired with a Texas gal and get one of these!

I'm so intrigued by this idea! I love love love cookbooks, but I have no idea where I'd even find a Junior League cookbook. I don't know if we even have Junior League here? I'm going to have to investigate this...

Darn! I just came across this and obviously missed the deadline. If I can still get in, I'd love to. I'd be ready to catch up and ship a book ASAP! Lynn - Madison, Wisconsin.
