Savory Sweet Life Cookbook Giveaway {Recipe: 4 Ingredient Oreo Ice Cream}

I’ve been sitting on this cookbook for a couple months now. Not because I don’t like it. Quite the contrary. The Savory Sweet Life Cookbook is a gorgeous book, full of wonderful stories accompanied by family friendly, unique recipes.

I’ve sat on the cookbook because I know how difficult it is to write and stay focused when you are faced with the loss of a loved one. I’ve tried many times to wrap my head around the beautiful piece of work Alice Currah created, knowing that through it all she was dealing with the sudden death of her father. If nothing else, Alice’s cookbook is proof that even through tragedy, you can be inspired to soldier on with a loved one pushing you on and holding you up from afar.

The Savory Sweet Life Cookbook is a work of love. It’s obvious Alice poured her heart and soul into her book, hoping to inspire you and me to embrace what matters most…gathering around the table with the people most important to us.

It’s not often that I sit down and read a cookbook from cover to cover, but Alice’s writing and photos pulled me in, and once open, the book didn’t close again until I had reached the end.

I am honored to be sharing a copy of the Savory Sweet Life cookbook with one Dine & Dish reader.

    I’m such a huge fan of this book. I was thrilled to get a review copy and it is one of my favorites from this year. With that being said, I think my mother would love a copy of it as well, so that’s what I would do with it if I won.

    Additionally, I have to say how much I adore this ice cream! Seriously wow!

    I have heard so many wonderful statements and reviews of this cookbook – it’s not everyday that a “cookbook” inspires so much more than good cooking!

    This book sounds amazing. I’m touched by the story behind and all around this book. I love cookbook and recipes that evolve around family and traditions. I know this will be a cookbook that I would read from cover to the end as well.

    I would like to win so I can see what all these instagrams are about from others! Plus I read the chocolate chip cookies in there were really good!

    I haven’t bought a cookbook in years due to A) I get most of my recipes online now and B) because we move every 4 years and I try my best to keep things down to a minimum. That being said you make me want this book and I’d love to own it. It looks like a keeper, and I’ve only kept 5 of the huge pile of cookbooks I had when I pared down. Can’t wait to try this ice cream!!
