0 Flares Made with Flare More Info'> 0 Flares ×

Didn’t get the cookbooks you wanted for the holidays? Or are you like me and can’t possibly have enough cookbooks to browse through? I’ve got two Williams-Sonoma cookbooks to giveaway as we enter the new year!

The spirit of giving is still in the air for me, and I’ve decided to extend that beyond my friends and family to you lovely readers!

So what’s up for grabs? Two Williams-Sonoma cookbooks: Cooking from the Farmer’s Market and Weeknight Fresh + Fast.

Williams-Sonoma Cookbooks Giveaway

Cooking from the Farmer’s Market is segmented by vegetable or fruit variety, sharing recipes that make that piece of produce the highlight of the dish. There are tips on buying and storing your produce and best ways to work with the produce to get the best results.

Beautiful photos accompany every page, leaving your eyes just as full as your stomach is empty. Read these recipe titles and tell me they don’t make your mouth water:

Fried onion rings with aioli. Avocado, bacon and tomato tartines. Honeydew-Lime Ice Pops. Covering breakfast to dessert and everything in between, you’ll be sure to find recipes that make you fall in love with veggies all over again.

Weeknight Fresh + Fast has the tagline simple, healthy meals for every night of the week, stating that it has 100 quick ideas for dinner tonight. This cookbook is categorized by seasons, highlighting the produce that you’ll typically find at that time of year.

Starting in Spring, dishes are light but flavorful. Mustard-peppercorn steak and arugula salad, chicken breasts with lentil-radish-mint salad, and asian-style chicken soup with baby bok choy were a few that caught my eye. Fall and winter dishes are my favorite since they’re hearty and often make leftovers, so the smoky black bean soup, turkey cutlets with mushrooms and marsala, and chicken with squash, turnips, and shiitakes all have me drooling on the pages. (Just kidding, I wouldn’t give you a book with drool on it).

  • Jessica Turner Strange

    I would like to cook and eat eggplant more often (and try and convince my husband that it isn’t food that only the devil eats). :o)

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Try breaded, baked eggplant. Give it a crispy crust. Eggplant can be a slimy, terrifying thing.

  • Katie Killian Ottaviano

    I want to cook any vegetable that I think I can get my hubby to eat (that he won’t already willingly eat). There aren’t many, which is why I’m always on the lookout for new recipes!

    • Solid Gold Eats

      It’s about introducing it in small quantities, over a long period of time, and in many, many different ways. It may include drugging him with beer and or lovey eyes.

      • Katie Killian Ottaviano

        The beer might work. Eyes, probably not :-)

  • Victoria S.

    I want to start learning how to cook and enjoy kale…I’ve always been a bit scared of trying it!

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Let me know if you try kale chips. I did, once. Did not enjoy it.

  • Gianna


    • Solid Gold Eats

      Such a versatile vegetable that comes in many varieties!

  • Kathleen Slauzis

    I want to use more brussel sprouts, kale, and squashes.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      This girl LOVES brussel sprouts, more than I should admit. Love kale. Screw squash.

      • Kathleen Slauzis

        Screw Squash? wow.. strong squash opinion there. Lol

  • Brittani Hensel

    I never use squash, but I love it. And I’d love to use rhubarb in the winter. I have never cooked with rhubarb but am so anxious to try. Especially for the winter.. :)

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Where have you found rhubarb in winter? Or are you using a pickled rhubarb? In Indiana you’ll find it in early summer, but I’ve never seen it in winter. GIVE ME YOUR SECRETS.

      • Brittani Hensel

        I meant pickled rhubarb…. it just sounds awesome in the winter.

  • jen

    i would love to use pumpkin in a more creative manner. not just for dessert.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Ooh, fresh pumpkin has always intimidated me.

  • Joan O

    I love veggies and would love some recipes for some of the ones I’m not as familiar with cayote for one.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Never heard of that! I love branching out.

  • Louis

    I want to use asparagus more often.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Same here. Sadly, John does not like asparagus. I plan on finding some recipes that are great for the one-person diner.

  • Meryl

    I’d like to find more recipes using broccoli.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Mmm, broccoli. You know what I am inspired by? The garlic teriyaki broccoli from Cheeseburger in Paradise. Easy to make at home!

  • Katie Contests

    I’m having my gallbladder out… can’t wait to eat more fat! :D

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Good luck!

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Love eggplant!

  • karen

    I’d like to learn how to use more winter produce, like turnips, sunchokes, and such.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      The hardest vegetables, I believe.

  • Wade Wingler

    Do cookies count as produce? Seriously–I love radicchio and wished I had more ideas of how to use it. I mostly halve it and grill it with olive oil and garlic in the summer.

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Ooh, I like that. I found a recipe for belgian endive that could probably be used with radicchio, will share soon.

  • Lindsey Lewis Weaver

    Currently obsessed with brussel sprouts and woul love to find new recipes so that I can cook them more often!

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Me too! I’ll have more recipes soon!

  • Elizabeth Hinds

    I want to consume more broccoli, avocado, and also more mushrooms. Yum!

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Ever tried fried avocado?

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Yay for kale!

  • Nicole

    as a student, i’m always looking for quick healthy meals!

    • Solid Gold Eats

      Totally! You do NOT want to know what I ate as a student. Let’s just say I have had my fair share of Taco Bell for my lifetime.

  • Mlsppb

    I would like to use a variety of color for my dishes!
