For my own giveaway this time I'm giving away something that combines my three favorite things in life; children, books and cooking.



Cooking with Herb is a companion book to Herb, The Vegetarian. Bright, funny watercolor, crayon, and pen-and-ink illustrations set the tone for a happy time in the kitchen. Grand-Ma-Ma Flora, Squat, Haggis, Gorse and Meathook, help Herb the Dragon prepare such vegetarian specialties as Spaghetti Sandwiches (a frittata of pasta, eggs and cheese), Veggie Sailboats and Radical Dragon-Salsa.

To enter the drawing leave me a comment telling me your favorite book, recipe or childhood moment and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win. While you are here, relax and look around.

The winners will be announced before the start of Shabbat on October 31st.

  1. I guess I will tell you a childhood moment from my childhood. I played mother mary in our school Christmas play and I felt like a real actress.I was 8 but I thought I had hit fame and fortune.Sadly, it was the end of my acting career but I will always remember how special I felt.

  2. My favorite childhood moment was when my baby brother was born. I was 4 and I remember when the nurse brought him to me. At that moment, I felt like he was mine.
