Cookbooks Giveaway! Create Comforting Recipes this Fall and Winter


One Hour Comfort Cookbook

Is there anything as satisfying as taking a seat and digging into your favorite comfort food? After all, Americans hold such a special place for feel-good foods and nostalgic childhood dishes that they would even name their kid after their favorite for a lifetime supply of it according to a Farm Rich survey. Thirty-five percent would name their kid "Pizza" for a lifetime supply of it, 28% would name their kid "Mozz Stick" and 27% "Ice Cream."

While preference of dish might vary, comfort food as a whole encompasses what makes cooking so wonderful. Like a portal to your happy place, it can evoke fond memories of childhood, bring friends and family together around a table, or serve as the perfect addition to a relaxing night in. The downside of cooking when comfort-food cravings strike? Sometimes we don't have time for the project of cooking our favorite comfort-food meals, causing us to cut corners, settle for less, or avoid the meal entirely.

America’s Test Kitchen’s new cookbook One-Hour Comfort offers up 170 favorite feel-good recipes that we've reengineered to be done in an hour (or less). There are a few recipes with cooling or chilling times that push them slightly over an hour–but we promise they're worth it (chocolate cream pies in a jar . . . DEFINITELY worth it!). The book includes helpful hacks that break down how to complete traditionally time-intensive recipes in under an hour. An example of our test cook’s quick (cooking) thinking? Our Hoisin Glazed Meatloaf. Traditional meatloaf takes a long time to bake because of its sheer size. The solution to getting meatloaf on the table in less than an hour is simple: shrink it down to individual-size portions.

Learn How to Serve Up Everyone’s Favorite Foods in no time !

In a mouth-watering collection of recipes from around the world, One-Hour Comfort provides readers with delicious dishes ranging from Columbian Arroz con Titoté to Shrimp and Grits to Malted Milk Pancakes with Nutella Maple Syrup. No matter what you’re in the mood for, you can count on finding meals that satisfy any sweet tooth or carb cravings alike. Plus, learn how to create these crowd-pleasing recipes in no time with a variety of time-saving hacks that will make hosting any game night or Sunday brunch a breeze, without sacrificing flavor.

Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese

When ‘just one more bite’ is never enough.

Hearty, rich and oh-so-tasty, this crowd-pleasing skillet recipe is everything you could hope for in a home-cooked comfort food. Bringing you the savory flavor of a classic burger on top of satisfyingly melty mac and cheese, this dish will have you making stops for leftovers no matter the hour. Can’t say we blame you.

Shrimp and Grits

The name alone makes you want to grab a bowl and take a seat.

Shrimp and grits has been a go-to comfort food for generations, and for good reason. The soft pillowy texture of buttery grits, tender shrimp and savory bacon bits all work in harmony to create a meal that’s as satisfying as it is delicious. The trick to our version of this already-beloved dish is cooking the shrimp in two stages, preventing them from diluting the density of the grits while maintaining all the flavor you’d hope for in this quintessential comfort food.

The Complete Autumn and Winter Cookbook 

I am still having a difficult time accepting that the days are getting shorter and we are entering autumn. My mood improves when I think about the arrival of baking season, reuniting with family and friends, and plannig holiday menus.

But autumn and winter cuisine is not just about ambitious project recipes that serve a crowd. It’s also about the everyday: simple, warming dinners easy enough for a weeknight, and slow-simmered dishes hearty enough to satisfy the biggest appetites. No matter the occasion, there’s The Complete Autumn and Winter Cookbook, your one-stop cold-weather cooking resource.

From seasonal-ingredient-focused meals and desserts to one-pot dinners designed to help you eat well on those quiet, in-between days, The Complete Autumn and Winter Cookbook has a recipe to keep you and your family feeling recharged and satisfied no matter the occasion. Even when you’re not preparing to host, our Food Gifts section provides you with a selection of delicious treats to pass along to loved ones, such as Spiced Pecans with Rum Glaze or sugar cookie and chocolate layer cake mixes. You’ll also find chapters fully devoted to versatile, seasonal staples like apple and pumpkin. Plus, chapters organized by side dishes, double-take-worthy centerpieces, appetizers, festive drinks, and desserts help you to plan a menu that you’ll be eager to bring to the table.

Keep the cold weather woes away with these bountiful recipes.

The colder months of autumn and winter are a time of cozying up and gathering with those closest to us. And what better way to spend those chillier nights than cooking new recipes or using new ingredients? A home-cooked meal on a chilly night is particularly special because it can be so easy to fall into a cycle of unimaginative pastas and potatoes, or even more tempting . . . delivery. Whether you live alone or are part of a large family, making nutritious and filling meals at home brings a sense of comfort and tradition.

Pork Pernil

A Puerto Rican classic, this dish of boldly seasoned, long-cooked pork with impressively crispy skin is often eaten on Christmas Eve. Featuring a bone-in pork shoulder rubbed with an herb-spiced paste called a sofrito, this aromatic dish is first cooked with the pork skin side down in a roasting pan—it’s sure to have even your neighbors’ mouths watering. When the pork is nearly done, it’s time to give this dish its signature crispy skin by flipping the roast skin side up and cooking it at 500 degrees. Pork pernil is sure to make any evening feel like a celebration.

Bourbon Bread Pudding

There might be nothing better than warm bread pudding on a cold, brisk day. The added bourbon takes the dessert a step beyond your traditional recipe, but even better, this slow-cooker dish is as foolproof and hassle-free as it is delicious. Decadent, satisfyingly sweet, and easy to prepare, you can expect this dessert to become a favorite in your household.
