giveaway: letterpress cookbook

here is a cookbook that is customizable and oh so pretty. (it's famous too, being recently featured on martha stewart). the nice ladies over at full circle press & a day in may sent me a box of their gorgeous letterpress goodies; coasters, cards and an extra cookbook for a blog giveaway. hip hip. i was thoroughly smitten and entranced with all the delicious cotton paperie. i love when packaging supplies and business cards are too artistic to toss. the two companies have joined (talented) forces and together, create so many beautiful items.

if you're intrigued, simply leave a comment to enter to win this letterpress cookbook. tell me what your favorite food is. (if you do not have a blog or your blog is private, please include your email in your comment.) comments are open until saturday / may 30 / midnight / mountain time. a random winner will be announced the first week of june.

merci! read their blog & browse their letterpress shop.

Lucky Designs said...

Pretty much anything my husband cooks! He can cook so well without a recipe. I, on the other hand, cannot.

hannah said...

How beautiful! My favorite food...that is a hard one! I don't know if I can pick.

RLM said...

During the summer, my favorite foods come straight from the farmer's market, these days I'm loving fresh squash and blueberries.

Homemade tacos are my favorite!

Dani said...

I've got the anxious no eating bug right now, so I can't think of a favorite. But as silly as this sounds...all I want to eat is supreme pizza from Sam's club right now. That has nothing to do with cooking, I know.

cay said...

Ooo, lovely.

Watermelon. Watermelon. And more watermelon.

Please.

A. said...

I'm newly married of just three weeks today, and we've moved from away our home town for the summer. I was craving my mom's roast and potatoes that she makes every Sunday so that our new home would feel like my parent's house, so I made it this past Sunday. I love how certain smells just remind me of my parent's house, bringing all the laughter and smiling faces of my family with it.

I would love this cookbook to start my own collection! It's absolutely adorable!

christel said...

I'm from Hawaii so my all time favorite food is Hawaiian food: the kalua pork, lomi salmon, raw fish, yum.

That cookbook is so pretty. I wish I could win it. Thanks for the chance.

My fave food is my granny's chocolte cake. She made her own frosting and it was to die for. I can't replicate though, I think she used a secret ingredient but I still try :) Have a great Friday!!

Genevieve said...

I adore food, it's my hobby, my business, my life. I'm currently jonesing for a good falafel sandwich (it's hard to say what my favorite food is) or a fish picatta. I would love this piece to add to my cookbook shelf =)

ladygoddess said...

My favorite food cannot be made singular since 98% of the meals made at my friend's hands is the best thing ever tasted on the palate of the human experience. It's some Old World as we mosey through the grocery store aisles, selecting the wine, then struggling down the stairs with the bags. I put things away for her while she selects tonight's ingredients. Then she performs some sort of hidden magic in plain sight as I sit at the table and ramble nothing sentences. And once her spell has been cast into completion she fills the plates, I the cups, and together we sit down. It's not a food but experience that I treasure most.

made sweet said...

oh my goodness gracious.

cooking?

and letterpress?

together???

i love it.

and i love my mom's italian chicken. when she makes it i eat and eat and eat.

Leslie said...

Right now, pesto chicken salad on fresh french bread...

Sarah said...

Pesto... I love that it can be modified in many different ways and incorporated into almost any dish. However, the absolute best is freshly made basil pesto with linguini. Why it has to be linguini I don't really know, but for me, it is the best tasting pasta shape to pair with pesto!

jeffrey said...

mmm... tomato artichoke soup on a cold day. yum.

jeffrey

maryirene said...

anything that has the word pasta in it.

Kristi said...

I love onions sauteed in olive oil and butter, then add brown sugar and spicy brown mustard....I top them on a burger or a steak. Yummy! (I got the recipe from Rachel Ray btw)

karyn said...

I am a big collector of artistic business cards! This letterpress is just beautiful.

Kelli said...

How adorable. My favorite food...pizza, hands down. Thanks.

Diana Hulme said...

Wow. How lovely. I love watermelon & rootbeer. :)

Dansie Family said...

love the cook book and i love food. i love it all, but right now i am into homemade granola with home dried raisins and local pecans.

kayla said...

i'm pretty sure my favorite food right now is salad. JUST KIDDING. it's sugar cookies.

p.s. cookbooks are such a good idea.

Rebecca said...

YES PLEASE!

homemade pizza with an olive oil/minced garlic base, fresh basil, sliced cherry tomatoes, and whatever cheeses i have on hand. yum :)

Janssen said...

How in the world to choose a favorite food? I guess I'd have to say sushi. Yummmmmm.

Berta said...

I'd have to say a BIG JUICY (in-season) Fuji A.P.P.L.E. Nothing better. Good luck everyone!

ShiriMe! said...

letterpressed cookbook! i did not know such things existed. what a fun idea! i'll definitely have to look into purchasing such things if i dont win. which i'm not likely to as i've yet to win anything online. oh well. now, do they have letterpressed insert pages? that would be fun too.

i LOVE italian food. i also love international pasta/noodle dishes. i love chow mein, as much as i love spaghetti, as much as i love pad thai, as much as i love vietnamese noodles, as much as i love the pasta-y, noodle-y dishes of other cultures!

P.S. said...

Strawberry sorbet! Does that count as a food? I love food so much I have to separate it into categories and that is definitely more of a treat.

I do love that spinach quiche you so kindly blogged about some time ago.

jomama said...

this is absolutely beautiful!
this might sound weird but my favorite food is popcorn. air-popped, drizzled with real butter, hit with a dash of salt, and then grate some parmesan on top.
when i was growing up every sunday night was popcorn for dinner. my twin sister and i would sit on the kitchen floor and share our huge wooden bowl. we loved it so much we had rules about how many kernels you could eat at a time, and the other one had to stop when one girl had to get up for something.

My Three Sons Designs said...

Love it! My favorite food right now is Lefty's pizza in my neighborhood in San Diego!

Melissa said...

The Hubs' amazing homemade pasta sauce. He made it on our second date. If I wasn't already smitten, he had me hooked for life after that!

That Tall Girl said...

Being a New Englander I absolutely love seafood! My absolute favorite meal (even since I was little) is linguine & white clam sauce. YUM!

What a great cookbook find!

theshychef said...

Holy cow, that is awesome! My favorite food is definitely sushi. Can't get enough of a tuna avocado roll.

whit said...

oh my favorite lately have been yummy chicken tacos, with refried beans, etc. very good.

The Wingnut's said...

i am trying so very hard to lose the 3 pounds i gained on a wonderful cruise. so my favorite food is :

almonds.

i can snack on these all day and it keeps me away from the chocolate and cookies.

i adore cookbooks. i wonder who the lucky winner will be?

Sarah N said...

wow, this is a beautiful book. i am falling in love with letterpress for sure! my favorite food....gosh, i have to pick one. ok, its beautiful homemade pizza - with all kinds of different toppings and sauces. i can't help it. :)
smnannen@yahoo.com

Jordan and Jandee said...

What a fun giveaway! What is better than homemade bread and jam. pretty much nothing.....but maybe homemade cheesecake (new york stye)?

Shannon said...

I have a wedding in June to go to where they have asked us to bring family recipes. This would be PERFECT for them!! I might just have to buy it for them.

Josie said...

what a fun idea!
my favorite thing lately has been homemade eclair cake, i just discovered it and think this will be my go to summer dessert

{kate} said...

i saw the martha show where they spotlighted this at the end - sooo cute! i wish i was there in the audience so i could've taken one home. but who knows, maybe i'll get super lucky and get it here!

my favourite dish is one i'm making tonight - homemade macaroni and cheese. not the box stuff...the real homemade deliciously cheesy stuff!

katieolsenheap@yahoo.ca

caityofthekeps said...

I have quite a few favorites, but lately I've been eating cheese quesadillas like they're going out of style.

Mullin Fam said...

I love food! My favorite right now is a fresh turkey sandwich from a yummy deli called the Smiling Moose!

ann said...

This cookbook is beautiful! You always share the greatest paper goods. My favorite food is raw oysters, slurped by the sea.

Kristine said...

Beautiful book! My favorite food of the moment has to be fajitas. Yum. : )

brandy said...

What a BEAUTIFUL cookbook.

Lila said...

Hands down, chocolate is my favorite food. Thanks for doing the giveaway- who wouldn't want one of these??

Mari said...

Favorite food? Hmmmm...in the summer, anything fresh; hand picked.
Thank you for the giveaway!

bets said...

i love the cookbook! letterpress makes everything look elegant and there's something about the texture that i love.

my favorite food (among many) is a salad that my mom makes-i think it's called roasted red pepper salad. she actually roasts the peppers on a burner to make a dressing and then the salad has ham slices, black-eyed peas and if i remember right, arugula and various spinaches. it's funny that it's my favorite because i'm a REALLY picky eater but it's divine and impossible to resist.

DanielleH said...

Well, my favorite food is one I don't have to cook! It seems like everything is more delicious when someone else cooks it for me! I LOVE the idea of making my own cookbook. My mother-in-law had one similar and since her sudden passing, it has become a family treasure. Love your blog!

Jessica said...

Fingers crossed!!!

Nance said...

My favorite food is desserts. It's a wonder I'm not the size of a house. :)

Summer said...

My absolute favorite food would have to be spaghetti. I'm usually good at not over-eating, but spaghetti is the one food that I will consume until the verge of becoming physically ill. My ex-boyfriend's best friend's grandmother was a tiny little japanese woman who made the best spaghetti sauce I have ever tasted -- her sauce was almost more of a 'spaghetti soup.' There was something in it, though, that made that sauce the most delicious and magical thing I have ever tasted, and to this day that ingredient remains a mystery.
