Weekend Giveaway: Good Cheap Eats Cookbook (10 Winners)


Readers who have been around here a long time will remember we used to live in the same town as Jessica Fisher from Life as Mom/Good Cheap Eats and her family. We loved getting to know the Fisher family during that year we were both in Kansas City together.

I especially enjoyed hanging out at their house! Not only because I learned so much from Jessica, but because she is an amazing cook. Every time we went to their house, she’d be whipping up some sort of magic in the kitchen. It’s her thing and she does it beautifully.
It was a sad day when their family moved back to California, but we will always be grateful for those many memories we have and for the gift of local friendship and community their family gave to us during a hard and lonely season of our lives. And I will always be thankful for all the recipe ideas, kitchen tips, and life hacks I’ve learned from Jessica.

And I’m excited to be learning even more from Jessica in her new cookbook, Good Cheap Eats: Everyday Dinners and Fantastic Feasts for $10 or Less!
I was excited to get this cookbook in the mail and even more excited to open it up and page through it. It’s packed with yummy, nutritious, and simple recipes — all that can be made on a dime. Not only that, but there are a lot of full color pictures throughout the book.
There are over 200 recipes in this book total, plus lots of great tips and tricks from Jessica. It’s one of those cookbooks you’ll want to read cover to cover and then hang onto to reference for great recipes again and again.
Would you like to win a FREE copy of Good Cheap Eats? I have 10 copies to give away this weekend. To enter to win, just click on the graphic below and type in your name and email address. This giveaway ends Monday, September 29, at 11:59 pm, CST. 10 winners will be chosen and posted early next week.
