Antonia LoFaso's Busy Mom's Cookbook GIVEAWAY

You should all remember Antonia LoFaso from the recent All-Stars season and her first Top Chef appearance during season 4. She's both a dynamite chef, and a devoted mom, and this week marks the release of her first book of recipes, The Busy Mom's Cookbook: 100 Recipes for Quick, Delicious, Home-Cooked Meals.

The book is chock-full of interesting recipes, and despite being for busy moms, there are surprisingly few shortcuts involved. Sure, she likes no-boil lasagna noodles and Better Than Boullion chicken base, but she also recommends making home-made ricotta cheese because it has a more superior flavor than the supermarket stuff.

Non-moms will like this book too. There's more than a few interesting recipes anyone would want to have up their sleeve, including simple recipes for flavor-packed meatballs and tomato sauce, and the best blueberry muffins.

We have one copy of The Busy Mom's Cookbook to give away to one lucky reader. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Winners will be notified by e-mail, so be sure we have your e-mail address.

The rules:
Submissions must include valid e-mail address.
Entrants must be at least 18 years of age and reside in the Continental US.
If you've won anything from All Top Chef in the past 60 days, please let someone else have a chance.

Deadline:
Saturday, August 11th at Midnight.

Still my all-time favorite Top Cheftestant. A couple of my now go-to recipes are hers from the show, though I hope they're in the book, since the Bravo web site isn't exactly accurate with the recipe postings!
