We have a winner and other announcements

Pasta with Butternut Squash and Bacon

Did you leave a comment on the Gemelli with Butternut Squash post? If so, you might be the winner of Giulianno Hazan’s latest book, Thirty Minute Pasta.
I asked you to tell me your favorite pasta or one you’d like to learn and many of you said pesto, ravioli or home made pasta so you can expect I’ll be posting some of those things on the blog in the future. 

I used the Random Number Generator, discarded any comments by me or family, and the winning comment is…..  

Karen Babb who said, “Favorite pasta is Pesto Pasta Salad and I would love to have a copy of this book. Thanks for posting the contest.” 

In other news, if you’re interested to hear some of my thoughts and tips on travel, I was interviewed on the Style & Inspiration Blog this week.
