Happy Mother's Day Giveaway

I didn't write up this post, I'm just posting it as a courtesy to help a blogger out who is so good at helping others. That's the great thing about blogging, so many of us are happy to pay it forward. It's a good community to be in.  BUT, now that I'm reading the post, I'm thinking, Wow! There's a lot of good prizes to be had here! I'd especially love to have those knives, and I love Michael Symon!

 Michael Symon 4 Piece Serrated Steak Knife Set
These precision ground knives come with polished blades and 18 degree razor sharp serrated edges. The forged full tang and abbreviated bolster provides strength and balance. They come with High Carbon German made Stainless Steel which provides great edge retention and are stain resistant for easy hand washing and care. Not only are they stylish but they are crafted with a G-10 handle, which is one of the world's strongest handle materials, so they will hold up in any kitchen. These knives are great for slicing smoothly through crispy crusted chicken, juicy steaks, pork chops and all your favorite meats.

Never be embarrassed again when sitting down with your family or friends for a great dinner and having them use a dull steak knife that would barely slice butter & tear their food with every slice. These knives are serrated which makes them great for even slicing tomato's, bread or bagels at any thickness you may desire. Not only do they cut through just about anything, they are stylish with a blade that is initialed by Chef Michael Symon. They will add elegance to any meal that you serve. 

 I have used many of the Ergo chef's products, but they have knocked this one out of the ball park in creating these Michael Symon steak knives with the Iron Chef himself. I would be honored to serve them to anyone with the best of meals.

Celebrity chef, restaurateur, and meat lover Michael Symon—of Food Network’s Iron Chef America and ABC’s The Chew—shares his wealth of knowledge and more than 100 killer recipes for steaks, chops, wings, and lesser-known cuts. Fans across the country adore Michael Symon for his big, charismatic personality and his seriously delicious food. But there's one thing Michael is known for above all else: his unabashed love of meat. A devoted carnivore, Michael calls the cuisine at his six Midwestern restaurants "meat-centric." Now, in Michael Symon's Carnivore, he combines his passion and expertise in one stellar cookbook. 

 Michael gives home cooks just the right amount of key information on breeds, cuts, and techniques to help them at the meat counter and in the kitchen, and then lets loose with fantastic recipes for beef, pork, poultry, lamb, goat, and game. Favorites include Broiled Porterhouse with Garlic and Lemon, Ribs with Cleveland BBQ Sauce, Braised Chicken Thighs with Kale and Chiles, Lamb Moussaka, and Bacon-Wrapped Rabbit Legs. 

Recipes for sides that enhance the main event, like Apple and Celeriac Salad and Sicilian Cauliflower, round out the book. 

 Michael's enthusiasm and warmth permeate the text, and with 75 beautiful color photographs, Michael Symon's Carnivore is a rich and informative cookbook for every meat lover.
