We have a winner!

Or 3 winners, to be precise. Thank you random number generator! Though I will say it is strangely terrible not to be able to send you all the books you want. What wonderful desires you have. I have a new reading list.

AndieD: Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day (which I am going to borrow from you)
Wendy: Making More Plants: The Science, Art, and Joy of Propogation (which I am sending you used because it is $250! Ha ha.)
Laura S: The Wind's Twelve Quarters

Please email me with your mailing addresses, and we will get these books on their way. Plus, I think there will be enough money left to do this again! Should I just pull from here, or should we redo the contest from the start? I can't think clearly.

Meanwhile, fish with brown butter. Also, shoes with brown butter. And cat with brown butter. I am planning to put brown butter on everything I own.

Have a lovely weekend.

  1. My hubby loves this Greek pasta dish with brown butter...it practically makes him melt! What is it with brown butter?

    I must confess that I do not eat fish and therefore neither to my girls (I do cook it for Hubby mind you) he eats tons of salmon. That is a huge area I am working on, some recipes that I will like and can incorporate as family meals.

    Thanks Catherine for always coming up with great family meals.

  2. $250.00?!?!
    ?!
    What the..
    I think that must be some kind of mistake, right? Cuz that book really only costs $50.00. Normally.
    ?!
    And I guess I'd better try me some browned butter now.

  3. Woo hoo!!!

    Obviously, used is just fantastic. ($250 new? How insanely ridiculous is that? Are people really that grossed out by a book that has been in someone else's hands that they would pay 10 times the money for a new one?) I just wasn't sure if you could use your store credit on used stuff, which is why I took myself out of the drawing preemptively. So glad you ignored me.

    Thanks so much!

  4. I laughed at your desire to put brown butter on everything you own, because I've recently discovered the wonders of browned butter myself, via Browned-Butter frosing and Browned-Butter Rice Krispie Treats.

  5. I think you should start the drawing over. I read the blog then went to search what book I would like and got so caught up I never came back to post. ....or picked a book for that matter.

    Catherine, years ago you suggested "Ask Me" by Antje Damm. I bought a copy and bought about 10others for gifts. It seems that it's now out of print. I looked a few months ago online to try to find a copy for another gift, and had no luck. Any ideas?

  10. Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats!!! Mmmm. Brown Butter Shortbread Cookies!!! Mmmm.

    And Teafortwo: I know. Ask Me is one of the loveliest books. Alas. But amazon seems to be selling a bunch of new copies through different marketplace sellers. Maybe you could stock up on a couple?

    I say start the contest over, and make us do something for the freebie. I just loved reading everyone's parenting advice and book desires. And we should have to comment over at Disney, too. You give us so much every time you share a piece of yourself and a story about your family. It's the least we can do for you. As always, thanks. --Cathy K

    Anything on the contest EXCEPT commenting over at Disney. That site hates me and hazes me ruthlessly.

    Maybe a new comment-op here for those who missed out the first time around. :-)

    Happy, Happy Spring!

  13. I will be trying the fish soon. Just getting over the phobia of cooking fish. (not sure why I thought I could never do it) The book would be 'The Organic Gardener's Handbook of Natural Pest and Disease Control' (a rodale organic gardener book)

    PS - haven't bought store bread since Jan 30th!!! Thanks so much for the recipe.

  14. How about start the contest over and have a theme? Fiction/non-fiction works about astronomy, gardening, food preparation, sewing and fabrics, car maintenance, sex, parenting, food eating, drinking, travel, animal husbandry, etc.? But please, please don't make us post on Disney. I can't figure out how to enter their iFortress.

  16. Just chiming in to say start fresh for the contest, please.

    Also, I made 5 batches of instant oatmeal this morning in preparation for the camping trip this weekend. I tried it out on the family this morning to make sure they'd eat it before we left. Then I asked my husband how it compared to the packets and he said, "Like 10 times better!" So, thanks.
