breadThanks to everyone who wrote in for “I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook,” by Kris Holechek Peters. The winner is Jessica Dearborn. I’ll pop it in the mail today.

If you are not Jessica Dearborn, you are eligible for the drawing of THREE books this week. They’re all a little different from my normal fare, and they’ve been on the corner of my desk for a while. It’s time they found loving homes.

“How To Be A Breadhead: A Beginner’s Guide to Baking,” by the Rev. Dominic Garramone. This one offers simple, digestible explanations of the breadmaking process. While bread books can often be dense as a fruitcake, with all sorts of technical and intimidating rules, this one is probably all you’ll really knead … Sorry.

“Beach Foodie: Blissful Eating to Maximize Life Force Energy,” by Cfayla Johnson, is a slim, peaceful collection of raw-food recipes for anyone who wants to try that lifestyle. Get used to ordering ingredients online.

“Sweet Macarons: Delectable French Confections for Every Day” by Mercotte, details, and I do mean details, the art of the oh-so-trendy French confections that look like Oreos in a rainbow of colors. They are not Oreos, though. They’re two small meringue cookies sandwiched with filling and dyed to any color in the rainbow. If you can find a color with a prism, it’s fair game for macarons.

To enter the drawings, please send e-mail to jennie.geisler@timesnews.com including your NAME, MAILING ADDRESS and NAME OF THE BOOK YOU WANT.
