    Just friended (is that a word?) the FSC swappers, I’m already a friend of the From Scratch Club.
    Really want An Everlasting Meal and since I wasn’t lucky last time maybe the second times the charm.

    Julie Child My Life in France, she is such an inspiration!

  10. Kimmer says:

    I’m already a friend, I shared the contest on FB and I am now a Pinterest follower. thanks

  11. Sara says:

    Wow, it turns out I’ve read a fair amount of these books, though probably less than half–which is great because now I have a lot of book recommendations. Anyway, to get back on topic–it’s a hard choice, but I’ll say Marion Nestle’s What to Eat, only because it’s ridiculous that I haven’t read it yet.

  12. Sara says:

    OK, I shared on FB and I’m already a friend, anyway!

  13. I friended FSC just this morning. I would love to have My Life in France by Julia Child. It has been on my to read list for a while but I have not yet been able to read it.

  14. Kyla says:

    I’m a FSC and a FSC Swapper friend.

  15. Kyla says:

    I’d go for the art of eating in.

  16. Jennifer H says:

    I would choose Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should and Shouldn’t Cook From Scratch by Jennifer Reese. Figuring that out (one food at a time) has been an ongoing quest. I love that this author devoted a book’s worth of time and effort to this topic!

  17. Jennifer H says:

    I just posted this giveaway on my FB page.

  18. Mike R says:

    I would love to win “What to Eat” by Marion Nestle!

  19. Mike R says:

    And I just liked FSC on Facebook.

  20. rebekah says:

    How to choose just one?? I’ll start with ‘An Everlasting Meal…..’

  21. rebekah says:

    And I liked FSC on f.b.

  22. jude says:

    An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace by Tamar Adler. i am intrigued by her ideas.

  23. jude says:

    we are facebook friends

  24. Nicolle says:

    I would like Closing the Food Gap by Mark Winne. It sounds very interesting.

  25. Nicolle says:

    We’re already friends on FB 🙂

  26. Kizzi Casale says:

    I would love to win Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite writers anyway, and I would love to read a memoir of the practicalities of a local foods diet, particularly given that her husband and children weigh in.

  27. Kizzi Casale says:

    And I friended the swappers on FB!

  28. Nichole says:

    I would love A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table! 🙂

  29. Kris says:

    Food Matters has been on my to read list for the longest, so that would be my pick.

  30. I would love to win Nourishing Traditions!

  31. I friended FSC on fb.

  32. Aimee G says:

    I’m torn since there are so many amazing titles to choose from, but I will go with ‘An Everlasting Meal’ as the book I’d like to win. I’ve heard nothing but fabulous things about it, and it seems like a perennially inspirational one!

  33. Aimee G says:

    I am am a “friend” of FSC and FSC Swappers on Facebook, and follow on both Pinterest and Twitter!

  34. Jen says:

    I would love to win the dirty life, it seems like a really good read!

  35. Jen says:

    already follow you on twitter!

  36. Allo! Its a meaty list and difficult to pick just one book from it! Thankfully, I already have 6 of these great books, which helps to narrow it down. I would LOVE to win A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg. I love memoirs, cooking at home, shopping markets and I beyond love Paris so it sounds right up my alley! Plus I love memoirs dotted with recipes so you can cook along as you read.

    Thank you!

  42. Leanne says:

    I would love “Make the Bread, Buy the Butter”. I like experimenting at making things at home that most buy, but I hate wasting my time!
