Cookbook Giveaway: Baking with Julia

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis know that some of my favorite pastimes are visiting antique stores and thrift stores. At a thrift store I found a gently used copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, Baking with Julia which happens to be the new cookbook that Tuesdays with Dorie will begin baking from on February 6th (Can't wait!). I just couldn't resist buying it because it was such a fabulous price and even though I already own a copy that my dear friend, Mike from Living Out West, gave me a few years ago, I thought that surely someone who would like to bake along with the new group at Tuesdays with Dorie, but doesn't have a copy of the book yet, wouldn't mind that it is gently used.


It is in really good condition with only minor wear on the cover edges, EXCEPT that it does have an inscription written on the inside cover:


So, to celebrate my upcoming 4 year blogaversary on February 10th, I decided to have a giveaway. If you are interested in becoming a member of Tuesdays with Dorie, but don't have the book, and don't mind that it is gently used and has a handwritten inscription (albeit with a misspelling) from a total stranger, please leave a comment below. The giveaway will be open until Tuesday, January 31st, midnight pacific time. My giveaway is also open to International readers.
  
Update: I would like to give the book to someone who enjoys baking, but doesn't already have the book, whether you plan on baking with Tuesdays with Dorie, or not.

  1. I have this book, but what a great giveaway! And what a find - I like having inscriptions and notes in vintage/second hand cookbooks. Sometimes there's valuable advice in those scribbles. Good luck to the winner!

    1. Hi, Lisa. Thank you for entering my giveaway. I have updated my post to include anyone who doesn't already have the book. Please check out the rules to Tuesdays with Dorie though, to see if you would like to join - the requirements for the new group are one post a month and there's only two recipes a month - much more doable!

  4. I'm so glad you mentioned the update, because I'd love the book even if I don't join the group! Thanks for a great contest.

  5. If the random number generator picks me, I'll take it as a sign that I have to bake with you guys. ;-)

  7. Oh you are so sweet to offer to have a give away for the book. I wanted to join the Fridays club but did not have that book. I would so enjoy having a chance with this cookbook.

    Thank you so much for giving me a chance.

    God bless,

  8. Elaine, congratulations on your upcoming blogoversary! I don't have this book, but if I win, I'll have to join the Tuesday group. I buy lots of used cookbooks. What a great find!

  9. Definitely could use a baking book. The only one I have is from Magnolia, and I'm unimpressed by the lack of orginality, and frankly, results. This aspiring chef would love Dorie's book!

  10. I'd love to throw my hat in the ring! I would consider joining the group if I won (and even if I didn't).. nice to have a community to discuss their baking experiences with the same recipe!

    And happy blogaversary!

  11. This is one I don't have. Would love a chance to win it. I think having personal note in it would be cool.

  12. I'm on the fence about participating in TWD, but like Adriana, if I win your giveaway I will take it as a sign that I must participate!
