Country Bob's Cookbook Giveaway



Not too long ago, I brought to your attention Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce that I had recently been introduced to. Now, I also have the pleasure of telling you about
The Original Country Bob's Cookbook. It's a beautiful hardcover book, with really nice pages. This is not necessarily a low fat cookbook but many recipes are in that category. There are so many great recipes that's it was difficult for me to choose what to cook first. A few of my favorites are:

Cucumber and Tomato Salad (made with kidney beans)

Huli Huli Chicken (made with a pineapple marinade)

Southwestern Black Bean Stew (easily converted to a low fat recipe)

This cookbook even includes some scrumptious desserts that don't use any of Country Bob's products or seasonings. Besides Pumpkin Delight which is higher in fat and calories, it also has Fruit Salsa, a very healthy dessert. I found that very thoughtful and considerate of this company.




Country Bob's is a Christian company; "Christ is our CEO" is their slogan. On almost every page you will find a scripture to help you get through the day. I like the fact that a company is not afraid to hold to their Faith and Beliefs.
If this is the kind of cookbook that interests you, Country Bob's is offering a lucky person a chance to win one. Here's how:

1. Leave a comment about something you learned at the Country Bob's site that impressed you most.


2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner, Feed Blitz, or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or that you are already a subscriber.
If you subscribe in more than one way, leave a separate comment for each.

3. For a third chance to win, blog about this contest with a link here, then come back and leave another comment telling me about it.


4. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com. If I don't have a way to reach you or you don't respond in three days, your name will be disqualified, and I will choose again, picking my favorite answer.
Good Luck!!


Open to US residents only, 18+.
Winners will be chosen by random.org.
Email addresses will not be shared with any third parties.
This Giveaway ends on Monday, April 6th at midnight EST.

I love the fact that this company has stayed true to it's roots and faithful to religion. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

I enjoyed reading the history of how the company came into being:

"In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table."

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is in a class by itself. It is more than a steak sauce, because of its unique flavor and the variety of uses. You can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes.

Bonnie in FL said...

I love what he says here "It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and He is an Awesome Boss!"

Jill1 said...

Christ is their CEO.
My deceased husband always grilled with the Country Bob Sauce. I continue to use their sauces.

purango said...

I am impressed that they have put God as their CEO. It is nice to know that their Christian commitment is more than lip service. garrettsambo@aol.com

coriwestphal said...

I am really impressed with this company. I won some sauce in a giveaway. I waited about a month and never received it. I emailed Country Bob's customer service. I was contacted within minutes! They were so sorry, they never got the shipping info from the blog owner. They ended up shipping the sauce out right away and I received it within 2 days. Not many companies give that kind of personalized service so fast!
