Giveaway: America’s Favorite Food cookbook

If you’re one of those people (ok, *I’m* one of those people) who can’t put down their phone long enough to read a book, then this giveaway is for you! – sister site to Cooking Light and several other food magazines – recently published their America’s Favorite Food cookbook, featuring 200 of the top-rated recipes from the site and embedded with Scan-It/Cook-It features that bring you enhanced content through your smart phone. To quote the blurb Cooking Light sent me:

“New SCAN-IT/COOK-IT™ technology allows readers to scan more than 130 vibrant, full-color photographs, with the Digimarc Discover app (free to download; available on iTunes and Google Play) to access features including: How-To Videos, Expert Answers, Weeknight Meal Planners, Collections of Similar Recipes, Shopping Lists, and more.”

I gave it a try and found all sorts of additional content linked to – for example, I scanned a photo of quinoa-stuffed chiles and the app pulled up 13 more suggested recipes using quinoa. My anti-quinoa husband would be thrilled. And if you’re more into paper than pixels, the nearly 300-page cookbook is still full of recipes and information to keep you busy.

The folks at Cooking Light have sent me 1 copy of MyRecipes America’s Favorite Food to give away to one lucky ETW reader. Want to put your name in the proverbial hat and get cooking? Head past the jump for details!

To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment here about which is your go-to source for recipes: cookbooks, online, or both. Please leave me a way to contact you (email, twitter handle, address to which I should send a carrier pigeon).

That’s the required entry, but after you’ve done that, here are several more ways to enter, if you want to increase your odds!

  • Follow MyRecipes on Twitter and tweet me about it – something like, “Hey @Eatingtheweek I’m following @My_Recipes on Twitter for a chance to win America’s Favorite Food cookbook!”
  • Follow Cooking Light on Twitter and tweet me about that.
  • Like MyRecipes on Facebook, and leave me a comment on this post to tell me you did.
  • Refer a friend to this post. They need to leave me a comment (which gets them an entry) telling me that you referred them (that gets you another entry).

The giveaway starts today, Fri. Nov 16, and will end on Wed. Nov 21 at 3 pm Eastern time. The giveaway is open to anyone with a US or Canadian mailing address. One entry will be selected at random via’s generator by 9 pm Nov 21 to receive the copy of the cookbook.

Good luck!

    I have to say that I do a bit of both. I go to a cookbook when I have a favorite recipe out of it but if there is something new I want to try I will enter it into a search engine to see what type of recipes come up.
