GIVEAWAY | CHIC Made Simple Cookbook (3 Winners) + Striped Salmon Teriyaki Recipe

This giveaway is now closed. The three winners have been notified via email. Congratulations!

Are you looking for a special gift for someone who loves to cook – but doesn’t love to spend all day in the kitchen? I’ve got the perfect idea for you: CHIC Made Simple, the newest cookbook by Ami Magazine food editor, Esther Deutsch.

Esther has a theory: If your food looks irresistible, it will taste incredible, too. Her recipes are designed to look — and taste– like gourmet cuisine. Yet the recipes are so easy, they take just minutes.

CHIC Made Simple features delectable, no-fuss cuisine that is made to order for all cooks: simple enough for the novice, fast enough for the busy cook, and impressive enough for the most accomplished.

Her beautiful and delicious recipes are perfect for your Shabbat or yomtov table – or anytime you want to treat your family to a special dinner (without hours of fussing in the kitchen first.)

Here’s one of my favorite CHIC Made Simple recipes. I’m a huge fan of teriyaki salmon, plus how pretty are those stripes?!

If you love glossy, beautiful cookbooks, you will LOVE this one! Get your copy of the 384-page CHIC Made Simple HERE. (Retail is $36.99.)

I am also thrilled that three lucky Kosher on a Budget readers will WIN their own copy of CHIC Made Simple.
