Audio Cookbook Giveaway

Another Free Week here and this time it is a ‘free’ week, in that I have an audio book contest to plug.

I have yet to plug anything I have published on 4F,1H, (not that I have managed to get a book finished), but I have had online and print publications. However, I have plugged my easy entertaining and food blog, Tonette Joyce:Food, Friends, Family, here at WordPress. I am not only a major foodie, I cooked and baked professionally, I owned and ran a bakery/restaurant. In all my entertaining and professional experience, I found that many people erroneously believe that they cannot cook, and often do not have confidence in their skills to entertain. So I put aside my intricate recipes and fancy cake work to show people how easy it is to cook simply from scratch, and how it is OK to take an occasional short cut… and to that end I offer the following contest:


A very dear and longtime friend, Diane Davis, is an accomplished actress/singer/songwriter who has been in several movies, TV shows and advertisements,(with a recent upswing in her career ). She has been sought after more and more for her voice talent in movies and is now in demand to narrate audio books. One of her most recent is “Dump Dinners Cookbook”, written by Daniel Cook, a late-blooming, but now renowned, chef.

I know that many of you do not consider yourself cooks, but all the more reason to have this book!The recipes are for slow-cookers,(“Crockpots”), and quite short. The tastes are basic to sophisticated. Some have a few have extra steps, but the directions are easy . Diane reads them to you in a clear, concise, yet friendly, voice.

I bought a copy for myself .It only runs in the range of $2.99-3.99, and it is a bargain. Diane has offered a copy for me to give away. So, I will ask you to visit me on Food, Friends, Family to learn more, or let me know here below that you’d like to be entered. Please leave an email address or private message me on Facebook, at either or
and I will enter you along with the few who have entered on FFF. I don’t get much feedback on guests there and I thought, here there are book people, and here’s a book contest! Join the fun.[If you aren’t on Facebook, you can email your email address to]

We will have a drawing Next Thursday on February 4th and I will announce the winner in short message next week.

Please enter message below and enter. Please check out the cookbook even/especially if you think you can’t cook. Daniel Cook didn’t think he could, either!

    I guess I’m one of those folks who does not believe he can “cook”. I’m best described as someone who can ‘cope’ in the kitchen… but — except for a few simple activities — it’s a foreign place to me.
    I don’t have the patience to sit anywhere to listen to a book (whatever the subject) and I don’t have a device which would carry that audio book with me.
    But I do know lots of people who DO… so — if I win — I will donate to the audio book to a worthy recipient.

    by the way, I could not get either of your links to work…


  3. The links did not work for me.
    I am slowly gaining confidence in the kitchen. After hearing my brother make comments about my poor cooking I decided to do something about it. I think before it was just that I never tried, I assumed I could not do it and let it go.


    • I have tried to fix the links, Angie; they should work now. I hope you will drop in to FFF and take a look around.There are recipes, but also tips and advice.I’ve had a lot of experience in helping people.I promise that nothing is very complicated there.
