America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook giveaway!

ATK Healthy Family Cookbook

I’ve been enjoying my copy of The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen, but I don’t want to keep it all to myself – so I’m giving away a copy! To make things even sweeter, this book has been signed by Chris Kimball! I wish I could say that I had one for everyone, but I have only one copy to give away to a lucky reader. To read a full review of the book, check out this post.

To enter the contest, leave a comment with your favorite America’s Test Kitchen recipe – whether it was from Cook’s Illustrated, Cook’s Country or one of their many cookbooks – below. If you can’t choose just one, you can always try making the Everyday Cinnamon Rolls, which just might be an instant favorite as a lighter, healthier version of gooey cinnamon rolls! The contest ends tonight at midnight and the winner will be randomly selected from the entries. Don’t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck!

Update: Comments are closed. Thanks for participating, everyone! Congrats to Debby of A Feast for the Eyes, who was chosen as the winner!


  1. I like their onion soup recipe.

  2. favorite recipes in heavy rotation:
    -Beef and Barley Mushroom Soup (from “Best Recipe: Soups and Stews”)
    -Blueberry Cobbler with Buttermilk Biscuit Topping (from Cooks Illustrated magazine)
    -German Apple Pancake (from Cooks Illustrated magazine Sept issue from 5-8 yrs ago)
    -Marinade for Grilled Pork (from Cooks Illustrated, summer 2009)

  3. Cook’s Illustrated’s Simple Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. This is simply the absolute best carrot cake ever! Although I have a hard time picking, this is my favorite. Thanks to all of you, my family eats much better meals!

  4. I have many beloved recipes, but today I made my old brunch stand-by for my 3-year-old son’s first big birthday bash (sadly, most of the kids ate bagels): the spinach-shallot-gruyere-strata from Cooks Illustrated that calls for soaking the bread overnight in the custard until it bakes up to puffy, golden deliciousness the next morning. It’s always a hit.

  5. I love their chocolate chip muffins recipe!

  6. I just bookmarked the cinnamon buns and the cheesecake, but until I try those, the chocolate chip cookies are my favorite :)

  12. I have made the black bean soup from Laurel’s Kitchen many times, but the recipe I use now from Cook’s Illustrated is just a little bit better.

  14. All Purpose Chocolate Cake!!

  15. There was a rich chocolate bundt cake recipe from several years ago in Cook’s Illustrated that was amazing. I bake it for special occasions only since it’s rather labor-intensive and quite rich.

  39. It’s simple, but my favorite (New Best Recipes – Cooks Illustrated) is oven roasted carrots with rosemary and onions. I make it over and over again.

  40. The cinnamon buns sound great to try but I love the Chocolate fudge filled bundt cake.

  41. I love the one-pan jambalaya. I used to manage a Cajun seafood restaurant in Fort Worth, and this is the easiest and quickest Cajun fix I can make at home!
