I would like to award this week’s free cookbook, “The Only Bake Sale Cookbook You’ll Ever Need” by Laurie Goldrich Wolf and Pam Abrams, to blog reader Rebecca!
As usual, you all made it incredibly difficult to choose a winner. In case you missed it, here’s Rebecca’s poignant comment about her dad:
My best ‘peanut-related food experience’ would be Every Day With My Dad! My dad was a peanut addict! His favorite food was anything with peanuts or peanut butter. (I even got him to love Thai food because of the peanuts) He always had a can of Virginia Diner peanuts by his ‘chair’ and ended every day of his life with saltines and peanut butter. I always told my husband and kids that I would never worry about dad’s health as long as he was still eating peanut butter and saltines before bedtime. Dad died in July of 2005 after a four month battle with stomach cancer. He ate those saltines and peanut butter until just a week before his death! Dad was a Baptist preacher who said even though it wasn’t biblical, he knew that the streets of heaven were paved with peanuts, not gold.
Thanks, Rebecca! E-mail me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put this book in the mail.
Here’s one last peanutty recipe from the cookbook before we move on to less nutty topics:
