[Update Nov 5 2009] - We have a winner! See the end of this post for details.
It's time for my first giveaway contest on DadCooksDinner. I have a copy of Jane Snow Cooks for one of my readers!
Jane was the food editor for my local paper, the Akron Beacon Journal. I saved a number of recipes that she published in the paper, but lost them all when I got a bit too enthusiastic about decluttering the kitchen.
*I threw away a binder that I thought was empty; it was full of recipes I had been saving. Arrgh.
In honor of those recipes, I want you to leave a comment in this post with your favorite recipe that you cut out of the newspaper, or a magazine, and kept using for years.
I'll go first! I have two...
The first is in Jane's cookbook: it's her Chicken Mole. As I've said before, I have made a bunch of different moles at home, and this one is my favorite.
*Especially when you consider the degree of difficulty that some moles have. My second favorite mole is probably Rick Bayless's Mole Poblano, but that recipe is an all day affair, and works better if you spread it out over two days.
The second is from Mark Bittman's Minimalist column in the New York Times. It's from "Crossing over to the Dark Side", where he declares his love for chicken legs. He adapts a recipe by Gary Danko: Baked Mustard-Herb Chicken Legs. It's a quick, easy, and delicious way to roast chicken on a weeknight.
*My version of this recipe is coming later in the week, so stay tuned.
So...what have you got? I'll pick one of the comments from this post, at random, to be the winner. Comments must be posted by Wednesday Thursday, November 5th by 8PM EST. One entry per person, please. Good luck!
*Book supplied by readers who clicked on my Amazon link and bought something. I just got my first Amazon gift certificate, and decided I should use it for a giveaway. Thanks, everyone!
