It's time for another giveaway!

Bag Giveaway, originally uploaded by foodchronicles.

Yes, Matthew over at The Penguin Group has given me the opportunity to do another giveaway! This time it revolves around the newly published book "Comfort Food" by Kate Jacobs. Some of you may know her book The Friday Night Knitting Club. She's written another great book and I get to giveaway 5 copies and 7 tote bags! The totebag is gorgeous! It's 11x18 with a copy of the bookcover on it and made of nice quality canvas.

The book synopsis reads: "Shortly before turning the big 5-0, boisterous party planner and Cooking with Gusto! personality Augusta “Gus” Simpson finds herself planning a birthday party she'd rather not—her own. She's getting tired of being the hostess, the mother hen, the woman who has to plan her own birthday party. What she needs is time on her own with enough distance to give her loved ones the ingredients to put together successful lives without her. Assisted by a handsome up-and-coming chef, Oliver, Gus invites a select group to take an on-air cooking class. But instead of just preaching to the foodie masses, she will teach regular people how to make rich, sensuous meals—real people making real food. Gus decides to bring a vibrant cast of friends and family on the program: Sabrina, her fickle daughter; Troy, Sabrina's ex-husband; Anna, Gus's timid neighbor; and Carmen, Gus's pompous and beautiful competitor at the Cooking Channel. And when she begins to have more than collegial feelings for her sous-chef, Gus realizes that she might be able to rejuvenate not just her professional life, but her personal life as well. ..."

If you'd like to win either the book or the totebag leave your name in the comments section! I'm not keeping one for myself, just passing all these wonderful goodies on to you my wonderful readers! Enjoy!

I'm heading out to a university graduation, leaving the husband at home, and when I get back Monday afternoon, I'll do the drawing.

UPDATE: Numbers have been drawn! If your number was chosen, you should have an email from me (that is if you left me an email address!).
