GIVEAWAY: You CAN Trust a Skinny Cook by Allison Fishman

Check back frequently in February, Gluten-Free Giveaway Love Month,
for the chance to win cookbooks, coupons and other food-related gifts.
Have you ever imagined taking a cooking class from someone who was, even though they knew a bunch of techniques you did not, so kind and funny and just full of advice to help you through a new recipe or new goals that you never once felt intimidated, but rather, empowered? A cooking coach who made everything easier than you ever imagined it could be?

Want to eat healthy without feeling deprived? Want to drop a few pounds without going on yet another yo-yo diet path? Want to feed your family good food without breaking the bank? If so, then Allison Fishman, author of You CAN Trust A Skinny Cook, published by Wiley, is the person you want on your team!
She will make amazing dishes possible and you will love every minute of the process! Do I sound like I'm exaggerating? Well, maybe that's because you haven't read her book yet. Little tips and tricks abound. The book is informal, and informative. You feel as if she is right there with you, anticipating questions you might have, and answering even those you didn't know you wanted to ask.

It's got great recipes for breakfast, snacks, main dishes, sides and, of course, desserts. And it's full of mouthwateringly beautiful photography, too, so definitely put it on your gift list, for the experienced cook who will enjoy the references to various world cuisines, the less experienced cook who will be proud to execute delicious meals with Allison's assistance, and for everyone in between who will appreciate the trimmer versions of old favorites.
Even though this book is neither 100% vegetarian nor 100% gluten-free, it's full of so many useful recipes (such as the moroccan carrot dish, above) and tips that I consider this book a welcome addition to my cookbook collection, and think you will, too, which is why I'm giving away one copy to a lucky reader. Here are the details:

I've liked you on facebook. I'm a pesco-vegetarian who is striving to eat gluten-free and low sugar as well. This book sounds right up my alley.
