Global Kitchen Cookbook Giveaway!

To honor National Nutrition Month, we wanted to host a giveaway on something we’ve been focusing on over at MomDishesItOut: Global Eating!

Watching the various countries compete in the Olympics last month and watching my kids taste new foods while we traveled in Peru got me thinking about the importance of trying new foods and expanding your eating horizons. So, when our friends at Cooking Light sent us the Global Kitchen Cookbook, I knew I had to share it with my readers.

Written by David Joachim, this cookbook features 150 recipes from all over the globe. Just this past Friday, we featured one of their recipes on our blog: Mom Dishes It Out.

Check out the details on how to win a copy of Cooking Light’s Global Kitchen Cookbook below and be sure to take a peek at the links below for more information on global eating!
