Ashley English is one of the hardest working women in the homemade movement that I know. In the last two years, she had published a series of four books (having only managed to write one in the same period of time, I am entirely gobsmacked by this accomplishment) with another one in the works. She also maintains her blog and contributes to Design*Sponge. And did I mention that she also had a baby during that same period. Truly, she is a marvel.
More than a month ago now, Ashley sent me an email to ask if I’d be interested in giving away a collection of her four Homemade Living books, Canning & Preserving, Keeping Chickens, Home Dairy and Keeping Bees. Delighted (and more than a little starstruck), I said yes because I think her books are great.
I’ve used recipes from both Canning & Preserving and Home Dairy to really good result. The writing is appealing and approachable and the recipes just work. And while I don’t have the ability to keep either chickens or bees, I must confess to occasionally flipping through those books. Aspirational reading, if you will.
Now, to the giveaway. Here are the details…
- To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post and share which book you’re most excited about.
- Comments will close at 11:59 pm eastern time on Wednesday, September 7, 2011.
- Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only (apologies to my more far-flung readers).
- One entry/comment per person, please.
Disclosure: Ashley’s publisher sent me copies of three of these books (I already owned the canning & preserving book having bought it when it first came out) and are provided the set of four for the giveaway. However, despite the books and my unconcealed admiration for Ashley and her homemade living empire, my opinions are still all my own.
