I recently joined the Savannah Junior League,
so that means I'm now the proud owner of several copies of the 
fabulous JL cookbook,
Savannah Style

Since I don't need the 10 copies that are currently sitting on my shelf...
(don't worry Mother, you have one on reserve)

I'm giving one away!

I feel like Oprah!!!

This is really a great cookbook!
Doesn't everyone love a cookbook - I mean, I can barely fry an egg, but I still have about 20 cookbooks!

So, here it is...

Isn't it pretty?  Very classic, I'd say!

On the cover is an original oil painting by Ray Ellis.  
It's entitled "An Oyster Roast" and was specifically designed for the Savannah JL.
Love it!

 ...and it's got the stamp of approval from Southern Living!

It's got great content -
Its got the usual - cakes, pies, poultry, vegetables,
my favorites are the Savannah specialty menus
including the...

Telfair Ball Dinner
Oyster Roast!!! (which lists - "plenty of cold beer and soft drinks")  :)  Very practical!
St. Patrick's Day Buffet
Savannah Summer Style

Also, it's got a great seafood recipes!

I love my JL cookbooks! I don't have one from Savannah though! Sign me up. And my favorite cookbook of all time: Barefoot Contessa Paris. I believe I have made every single recipe and I probably make something of hers weekly, if not almost daily. Happy cooking!! Oh, and your previous post - thanks for the book recs. I'm always looking for a good new reads. I wasn't wild about Firefly Lane but my book club loved it. Another great winter read is "City of Thieves" if you haven't read it. I read it last year and LOVED it. xo, Tess

My cousin is in JL and their cookbooks are awesome! I love cookbooks. So much so that it's almost an unhealthy obsession. Fun giveaway!

Royar said...

I already follow you and love your blog! My favorite cookbook is my Grandmother's from her parish in West Virginia - it's from the 80's and it's so nifty! What a great giveaway - crossing my fingers!

Ally said...

I'm already a follower :) Such a sweet giveaway!! I hope I win :) One of my favorite cookbooks is Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld

Kat said...

I'm a follower and hopelessly addicted to cookbooks. I would so love to add this one to my collection. My favorite cookbook is probably the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. It is AMAZING, I have all three, the family baking book, the family cookbook and the healthy family cookbook.

I'm a follower, and I love cookbooks. I guess out of loyalty I must say that my favorite is the Greenville JL book, Uptown Down South, and, of course, Charleston Receipts is a must-have. And all of Ina's!

Michelle Leigh said...

I'm a new follower (from Statesboro, GA! Not too far away!)- I love to cook but just have no time, but there is nothing better than a great cookbook to give you some inspiration!

So much fun! Already following happily...and I wish I could say I have a fav cookbook, but I'm a total cooking *DUNCE* I guess I could definitely use the suggestions! LOL

Sara Louise said...

I just found your blog from *Sarah Elizabeth* and I'm so happy I did because I would LOVE a chance to win such a beautiful cookbook! I've been obsessed with Savannah even since I read Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil so I'd love a little bit of Savannah in my home in France!
I'm following you now :-)
And my favorite cookbook is Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, it's taught me so much.

Sarah Elizabeth said...


First of all, thank you for the lovely comments on my blog - you're so sweet.

Secondly, what a fab giveaway. I'd love a bit of Southern living in my home in Italy. Those punch recipes sound amazing.

My favourite recipe book is my mum's hand made notebook where she has written in all of her favourite recipes over the years. The pages are stained and sticking together but it has all of my favourite recipes inside.

Thanks for such a lovely giveaway. Have a great weekend x x

Would love a chance to enter this giveaway! I am a cookbook junkie, a transplant to the South, and a lover of Southern cuisine. I don't own a single Southern-style cookbook! My current "other" favorites are by Jamie Oliver, Giada, and Nigella.

Thanks for organizing this! Have a great weekend!

Hi Love,

So proud of you and your fab blog! I'm already an avid reader. My favorite cookbook is The Barefoot Contessa Collection - Ina Garten's first cookbook! It's got all of her tried and true New England recipes including my favorite, Maryland style crab cakes. And her parmesan smashed potatoes....I die! If you don't own it already, go out and get it! I'd love to add the Savannah JL cookbook to my count me in!!! Keep up the great work!

Oooo, I love cookbooks and I'm a follower, so please enter me! I'm in Junior League and remember purchasing several cookbooks - they make great Christmas presents! I love my JL cookbook, as well as my Barefoot Contessa - Back to Basics cookbook. Great recipes - although I love looking at the photos just as much!

Lorri said...

Please pick me! Pretty please! I have a serious addiction to cookbooks! I am very partial to my Tea Time at the Masters and my Dillard House cookbook. Both are great!
