I hired a 3 judge panel from the firm of Blaze, Blaze and Baumberger to choose the most clever comment for the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook Giveaway.
I was just too jaded and dizzy to choose a winner, so I picked 3 women to do the job, all whose opinions I highly regard.
One is an excellent baker, one is an excellent writer, and the other an excellent cook and wine drinker, so how could I go wrong?
So congratulations to briannechase who wrote:
"U-Haul rental for cross country move from Michigan to California - $1900
Grocery trip to Safeway to stock my very first single girl cupboard/fridge - $300
Cheap-o cookware for my very first single girl kitchen - $60
Preparing and cooking my own dinner in my very first single girl apartment and then proudly displaying my very first cookbook on my empty kitchen counter - PRICELESS :)
... For some single girls there is carryout - for me there is Ina Garten!"
Please contact me with your name and address and I will mail out your new "back to basics" cookbook! You clever girl!
