"One to Five" -- A Giveaway!


Imagine my surprise when a representative of BlueStar contacted me to see if I wanted to receive a copy of Chef Ryan Scott’s brand new cookbook, “One to Five” to host a giveaway for my readers. A perfect holiday gift. 

Chef Ryan Scott says "the philosophy behind One To Five is so easy you will want to kiss me". And I agree: name a simple ingredient and he'll give you a quick way to prepare it that can be transformed into five great dishes to serve throughout the week. "Keep it simple, get it to the table and enjoy the meal". 

 We are keeping our meals simple these days and have been relying on our CSA veggies and local chicken and meats to put quick and healthy dinners together. This week I received watermelon radishes in my veggie box, and I made a salad for dinner one night. Topped with cheese, bacon, dried cranberries and sliced apples. 

We made Ryan Scott's  Mozzarella-Stuffed Crispy Portobello Burgers and both gave it five stars.
Ryan Scott is a chef, restaurateur and Emmy-Award winning food host. He appears regularly on national television, including Today and Rachael Ray, and is the host of The Ryan Scott Show, a weekly radio show. Ryan is chef and owner of Finn Town in San Francisco. “One to Five” is his first cookbook—endorsed by celebrated chefs and TV personalities including Rachael Ray, Sunny Anderson, Carla Hall, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.
This the part I love. “When it comes to cooking at home, if I can’t prep it, cook it, and sit down to eat it in an hour or less, I don’t want to do it. It’s just that simple,” says Scott.  “One to Five” is cooking for real life: master one basic recipe and learn shortcut solutions to spin it into five quick, affordable, and crowd-pleasing dishes. Chef Scott offers ingenious tricks and guidance on stocking the fridge, freezer and pantry to help home cooks streamline the cooking process while demonstrating how to think creatively in the kitchen. 


When we remodeled our kitchen 10 years ago, we chose a BlueStar range. It is constructed with commercial-grade stainless steel, and is designed to withstand the rigors of the busiest home kitchens. BlueStar®gas ranges provide the home chef with a cooking experience that only can be matched by a restaurant kitchen environment.  
Leave me a comment, and I will pick one winner on November 25. GOOD LUCK!! I hope you win. I know I would love to win this!!!   

I am joining Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm.

  10. Debbie, After seeing you mention your CSA veggies a few times I recently researched one near us and am trying to decide whether to sign up! I know we would love the veggies but I'm worried about being here when I need to pick up the food. I'm more tempted than ever now that I see your delicious salad with something (watermelon radishes !?!) I would not normally buy! This book sounds wonderful! Thanks for the chance to win. Linda

  12. Debbie, such a beautiful dish and so healthy. I love the presentation and have often admired your MC dishware. That mushroom burger looks amazing. Lovely giveaway, but don't count me, because I won your last giveaway.
