It’s kind of an exciting day around here… The Recipe Girl Cookbook is finally, finally, FINALLY making its official debut in stores and everywhere else. Hopefully those of you who ordered it online will be receiving it in your mailboxes today or tomorrow! Yay! I’m so happy you’ll be sharing in the fun.
SO TO CELEBRATE… I’m sharing a week of giveaways here on RG for all of my very favorite things. Be sure to check in each day this week to see what I’m revealing for the surprise giveaway (with Friday being the grande finale WOW giveaway, so don’t miss that one FOR SURE!)
Today’s giveaway is for a place I love to shop. It’s not my everyday market, but it’s definitely a market I go to often: Whole Foods Market
Here’s why WHOLE FOODS MARKET is one of my favorite places to shop:
- They have an awesome, perfect-looking meat department. Case in point: Sometimes I like to cook with chicken thighs. Have you ever bought just plain, ol’ regular chicken thighs at your neighborhood market? They’re completely full of fat, and by the time you’ve trimmed them, there’s a small scrap of meat left. At Whole Foods, the chicken thighs have more meat to them! Way more.
- I love their seafood department too. It’s always clean and fresh-looking, and they have a beautiful selection. I don’t always trust my neighborhood market for fish.
- Bulk food bins! An example: Sometimes I’m making a recipe that calls for something like 1/2 cup shredded coconut. I don’t use shredded coconut often, so it’s a big bonus when I can truly buy JUST what I need for my recipe.
- Specialty items: things like chocolate extract, Barney (almond) Butter, Parmesan Crisps, Gourmet Cheeses and Olives, gluten-free items, espresso powder… stuff like that.
- Their produce department is gorgeous, and they often carry hard-to-find items.
Would you like to have a little shopping spree at Whole Foods? They’ve teamed up with RecipeGirl to give a RecipeGirl reader one $150 Gift Card, and I’ll give that winner one signed Recipe Girl Cookbook!
