Iâ€™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 â€“ 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!

I haven’t scoped out their light cook book, but I love their one pan chicken parmesan recipe!
AditiJanuary 17, 2011
How to narrow it down to just one recipe? They all have spectacular results but I think the most spectacular improvement over the “regular” recipe was for French Toast. The two variations for white sandwich type bread vs. chewy rustic bread.
And can I just add how much I love Chris Kimball!
CatherineJanuary 17, 2011
I don’t think I’ve ever made an America’s Test Kitchen recipe before, but I’d love to start now! 😉
HeidiJanuary 17, 2011
Their carnitas are a favorite here. Very time intensive, but the result is worth every minute.
AkikoJanuary 17, 2011
Their chocolate chip cookie recipe is my favorite.
ShirleyJanuary 17, 2011
Everything I have tried from Cook’s Illustrated, Cook’s Country or America’s Test Kitchen is my favorite. But, if I have to narrow it down, I’d say the Classic Creme Brulee (Nov. 2001). The recipe was featured in my first copy of Cook’s Illustrated and was the catalyst to my becoming hopelessly addicted to all areas of the CI family.
coreenJanuary 17, 2011
I have never had a recipe that I did not like. My most recent favorite is the pie crust recipe. No fail. Love it.
sarahJanuary 17, 2011
I love the triple chocolate mousse cake. I’m addicted to mousse and this was amazing!
SteveJanuary 17, 2011
Tons of good recipes – but the two that I’ve think that I’ve made again and again are:
1) Beef Tacos (CI April 2002)
2) Spice-Rubbed Grilled Bone-In Chicken Breasts (CI July 1997)
Both are tremendous!
KellieJanuary 17, 2011
From all the comments, I’m not going to be able to pick which recipe to make first!
LeniJanuary 17, 2011
I love the meatloaf and spaghetti sauce recipes…they’re my “go to” for these classic recipes!!
SarahJanuary 17, 2011
I love their crispy oatmeal cookies. They are so unexpected and delicious and provide a great base for improvising!
JocelynJanuary 17, 2011
All American Meatloaf is a family favorite as well as the Chocolate Chip cookie recipe which makes THE perfect chocolate chip cookie!
Ling LingJanuary 17, 2011
Blueberry muffins 🙂 Yum Yum
Thank you for doing this.
douglasJanuary 17, 2011
Oh, my favorite is the Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Zest Topping! Our kid just raves about them.
Kim K.January 17, 2011
My current favorite is the pizza recipe in the Cook’s Illustrated I just got in the mail. I would LOVE to win this cookbook. I put it on my Amazon wish list this morning!
Salina CookJanuary 17, 2011
My favorite would have to be the chocolate souffle in The Next Best Recipe- BUT I have never tried a recipe out of this cook book that I didn’t like! They are all terrific!
Nancy SetoJanuary 17, 2011
Their chocolate chip cookies are to die for! I bake them far too often for my own good ;D
EmilyJanuary 17, 2011
I love their molasses spice cookies from a Christmas baking special issue I got a few years back. So good!
Jo K.January 17, 2011
It’s very hard to pick just one, as I’ve made so many that always come out so delicious. One that comes to mind is the horseradish crusted beef tenderloin. Yum Yum. I love your cooking site and cookbooks.
Janis BJanuary 17, 2011
The best blueberry muffins are the best ever. I am begged to make them again and again.
EsteeJanuary 17, 2011
I love their Scoop and Bake roll recipe! It’s so quick and easy if you want fresh hot rolls! That’s just one of the many that I love! 🙂
debbieJanuary 17, 2011
the best recipe from baking illustrated – the carrot cake with the cream cheese frosting. it’s wonderful – my 82 year old grandmother, who doesn’t like sweets, looooves the cake and insists on taking it back to her friends in her apartment complex everytime i make it!
this book is one i’d love to have in my shelf 🙂
GloriaJanuary 17, 2011
My favorite is the Pulled Pork found the first Cook’s Illustrated “Best of”cookbook- still have the magazine issue with that recipe but bought the book because of this recipe. I have been making this for over 11 years and always get requests for seconds and the recipe.
SandyJanuary 17, 2011
I love the light brownies!
Marilyn CooperJanuary 17, 2011
My favorite is the coconut layer cake.
Rich AtenJanuary 17, 2011
Cream Cheese Coffee Cake by far!
KarlaJanuary 17, 2011
Thats a hard choice! I love the chocolate chip cookies, but the chocolate cake with the peanut butter frosting is TO DIE FOR! yum!!! (all from the baking book!)
MeredithJanuary 17, 2011
I love Cook’s Illustrated Roast Turkey and Giblet Gravy recipe. I have been using it for Thanksgiving for years.
Carolyn TrieschmanJanuary 17, 2011
I LOVE the chicken pad Thai. So easy and quick especially when using rotisserie chicken from the deli!! Try it!! ATK is the best!
AdeleJanuary 17, 2011
I love their make ahead French Toast recipe.
CatherineJanuary 17, 2011
You can’t go wrong giving America’s Test Kitchen Cookbooks! I gave 2 for holidays gifts! But this one, I’ll keep for myself.
JulieJanuary 17, 2011
I make the challah recipe for every shabbat…. so good and so forgiving!
June OsowskiJanuary 17, 2011
My favorite is from Cooks Illustrated and is for No-Knead Bread 2.0, based on the Sullivan Street Bakery recipe.
CynthiaJanuary 17, 2011
Their brownies are awesome!
RebeccaJanuary 17, 2011
Chocolate Chip Cookies, hands down. I like them better than Alton Brown’s or the NY Times recipe.
MelissaJanuary 17, 2011
Has to be the Ultimate Cinnamon Buns (but probably only until I am able to make the Sunday Gravy).
SusanJanuary 17, 2011
I really liked their take on blueberry pie, thickening the filling with grated apple.
Thaks for doing this – I’m really working on lightening up the fat in our meals!
Jenn BJanuary 17, 2011
This is easy – I LOVE their pancakes!
Mellisa WJanuary 17, 2011
The Classic Stuffed Peppers is my favorite recipe.
Becky ZJanuary 17, 2011
Their chocolate chip cookie recipe is amazing!!
KaranJanuary 17, 2011
I really like their Mexican-Style Charcoal-Grilled Corn. DEElicious!
KamiJanuary 17, 2011
my current favorite is the sausage, potato and peppers from the 30 minute cookbook
Cathy MillerJanuary 17, 2011
The recipes in Cookâ€™s Illustrated and the cook books are great. It is hard to choose just one.
Either my mom or I try to make at least one receipt out each issue and let each other know which one we like best.
The easy meat loaf recipes out of the cook book is great. My family now ask for meat loaf. I love the explanations to the recipes what was tried and why it did or did not work.
ACJanuary 17, 2011
I love their recipe for chicken and dumplings!
Katy MJanuary 17, 2011
The perfect brownies!!
AshleyJanuary 17, 2011
The blueberry scones were absolutely perfect! The most buttery, highest, delicious scones I have ever tasted. Tey were such a hit at Sunday brunch! =)
LouisaJanuary 17, 2011
I have enjoyed Cooks Country for many years. My favorite recipe is the Mochaccino Bread Puddings. My husband asks for them often.
JulieJanuary 17, 2011
I really like their reduced fat carrot cake. It always goes over well and no one guesses that it’s “good” for them (as far as carrot cake goes.)
reneJanuary 17, 2011
i used the recipe to the best blueberry muffins ever!!
