Cookbook Giveaway - Casa Marcela

The third cookbook from Food Network personality, Marcela Valladolid, Casa Marcela: Recipes and Food Stories of My Life in the Californias, is by far my favorite of her titles. Her first two books, Fresh Mexico and Mexican Made Easy were both great books but here the author has hit her stride.

For more information on this title, please see our review and recipe post.

We are pleased to offer three copies of this title to our EYB Members in the US. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

What recipe in the index would you like to try first?
