Update 11/16: Thank you everyone, for all of the great lunch ideas! There were so many good ones, we put all of you in a drawing for the book and the name drawn was Natasha from 5StarFoodie. Be sure to visit her site if you haven't already because she has really creative posts! I will be giving away another book in January so be sure to check back.
With the holidays quickly approaching, I've decided to give away a copy of one of my favorite baking books, Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey by Jill O'Connor and Chronicle Books. True to the title, this book is full of mouth-watering sticky, gooey desserts such as Chocolate Caramel-Pecan Souffle Cake, Cinnamon Donut Bread Pudding, Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel-Butterscotch-Buttercream Frosting and many, many more. Being a designer, I have to say this is one of the most creative, well-designed/food-styled cookbooks I've seen yet and you will love reading the entertaining forward.
So what's the catch? You need to help me out with the lunch rut I am in!
I've been struggling with lunch ideas for awhile now. I've been trying to be disciplined in bringing my lunch to work at least 3 days a week, although it usually pales in comparison to the carryout that my colleagues are eating across the table from me or what I order on the days I eat out. I feel like I'm packing the same thing and need some new inspiration.
So help me out and reply to this post with your lunch suggestion or a link to your favorite lunch recipe, whether it be on your site or elsewhere. All I ask is that it's something that is relatively easy timewise through the week. I will select a recipe on Tuesday, 11/10 and post the winner. The winner should in turn, post the first sticky, chewy, messy, gooey recipe they make from the new cookbook. :)
