Today is a big day…..Whole and Heavenly Oven is officially 1 YEAR OLD! Wow. It’s just crazy to me that my first year of food blogging really blew by that fast. It’s definitely been a joy for me working on this blog, it’s been fun learning how to use a camera, developing recipes, and really just taking all my food skills to the next level. It hasn’t been easy, but I enjoy a challenge, and I have definitely enjoyed having my own food blog.
Here’s a little recap of the past year:

Now let’s get onto the good stuff: The giveaway!
In celebration of Whole and Heavenly Oven’s first birthday, I’m going to be holding a series of giveaways, one of which starts TODAY!
I am giving away one copy of The Science Of Good Cooking, written by America’s Test Kitchen, editors of two of my all-time favorite food magazines, Cooks Illustrated, and Cooks Country. This cookbook is a must-have for any budding chef and it is primarily designed to make you a better home cook and take your cooking skills to the next level. Quoting from the cookbook: “Good cooking starts with good science.” The professional chefs from America’s Test Kitchen explain the simple science of good cooking in an easy-to-understand way, enabling you to apply these tips to your own cooking, and overall becoming a better cook.
The Science Of Good Cooking book includes:
- Over 400 tried-and-tested recipes that are 100% foolproof.
- Explains 50 simple techniques and methods involved in the preparation of making tasty food.
- Step-by-step photos, showing you different food-prep techniques.
After each recipe you’ll get an explanation of exactly WHY the recipe works:
This cookbook is basically a manual for your kitchen. I keep my own copy right in the kitchen where I can turn to it, quickly when a food-related question arises. (which is quite often!) It’s proved extremely helpful to me and I have no doubt you will think exactly the same thing!
