The Culinary Sweeps - We have the winner! Addresses sent!

I'm the happy winner of the last round of the culinary sweepstakes, and it was so great to get such lovely books from all around!
So it is now my turn to host the next round. :)

Culinary Sweeps are for books that have the name of a food in the title, and is in no way restricted to cookbooks/recipe books.
Also accepted are books with the word restaurant, kitchen, menu, cafe, bistro, chef or cook in the title.

Rules are:

1) Post here by February 14th if you wish to enter!
2) PM me with your name and address which will be sent to others if you are the winner (No PM = No entry).
3) Winner will be drawn on February 16th and everyone will get a PM with the address and name of the winner &/or decoy.
4) Decoy will also be drawn so that the winner will not know they have won until the books start to arrive.
5) Please keep the winner a secret, it is more fun that way! Don't write to them, or post their name here, please.
6) The winner of this contest must agree to hold the contest again in two or three months time.
7) If you are the winner, please post here the goodies that you receive.
8) This is international. Better World Books ships overseas for free, if you need a cheaper postage option.
9) OK, that's it. Have fun!

There's a red mailbox right outside the house I live in. And I had stamps at home. So it was quite easy to get it sent so fast!

This is my first time winning this sweeps and I am so excited. I love food and look forward to reading all the books where food will be featured all the time.

lauraloo20 sent Bread Alone by Judith Ryan Hendricks. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14834712 It looks like an interesting read. The book cover makes me want to go out and buy some bread. Too bad we just had plenty of snow and all I want to do is sit indoor and sip some tea.

thanks to sakirmo. Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Crime by Tamar Myers, an author new to me. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7156344 The herbs are making my mouth waters.

Thank you, Harobed82, who kindly sent both and the cutest bookmarks. I love the cute cat decorations on the envelop.

The Toad Who Loved Tea, by Faiz Kermani. This is a cute children's book by a fellow bookcrosser.

And French Vegetarian Cooking, by Marie-Pierre Moine. This is a cookbook filled with beautiful pictures for recipes of simple steps. I am not much of a cook and these seem to be recipes I can follow. We'll see.

for The I Hate to Cook Book. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13854212
I do hate to cook, so this is the cookbook for me. The recipes included look short and simple enough for me.
Profile Image
for Rosie's Little Cafe on the Riviera, by Jennifer Bohnet, and the lovely magnetic bookmark that colour-matches the book perfectly. This seems like just the book to read to carry me into spring.

I also received a baking recipe book: Be-Ro Flour Home Recipes. The recipes have been tested to satisfaction by previous bookcrossers. I will have to look through for recipes that do not require a lot of special tools.

Thank you again 8)

for The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez. https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14931934 The book is on my wishlist and it seems like a most delightful read.
Profile Image
Seems like I'm the decoy:) I received the book "Like Water for Chocolate" by Laura Esquivel, and 2 nice postcards and some cartoons and funny notes inside the book! Thank you very much!

Still no sign of the package I sent? I hope it hasn't gotten lost but is just taking its time to arrive...

Book arrived today. It is Chicken soup for the Mother's Soul. I do not find the BCID on the book. Have you registered it? If so, please PM the BCID. Thank you for including some interesting postcards and note cards.

for Love and Meatballs by Susan Volland. It looks like a fun and yummy read. I think I will move it to the top of the reading pile. I am just in the mood for something like this.
Profile Image
Now everything has arrived. It has been a fun round. Thank you for all your generosity and excellent picks. I look forward to hours and hours of reading and thinking about food.

Thank you Chania for hosting. I will start the next round in a week or two. Start reading to get ready for the next round. I hope to see you back.
