Add a Pinch Cookbook + Kitchenaid Mixer Celebrate Giveaway! //


Congratulations to Claudia, comment # 132, as winner of the Add a Pinch Cookbook Let’s Celebrate Giveaway!

Can you believe that the Add a Pinch cookbook has been out in the world for a little bit over two weeks now!?

It still seems like just yesterday that I told you about working on it, then shared the cover with you all, and gave you sneak peeks with a few recipes along the way.

In my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined how much I was encouraged by your love and support throughout the entire process! I feel like this is ours – yours and mine.

And you guys, we have so much to celebrate!

  • The Add a Pinch cookbook was named to Amazon’s Best Books of the Month List for April!
  • A recipe was featured in People Magazine (who would’ve ever thought that would happen?).
  • I’ve done really fun interviews that will be in a few magazines and radio shows in the upcoming months and am scheduled to hop out to LA later this month for a fun segment.
  • There are a couple of book signings scheduled, along with a cooking demonstration at a festival later this month. If you are in the area, I’d love to hug your neck. You can find out the details on this page.

I’m absolutely thrilled and over the moon excited! There were so, so, so many people involved to make this cookbook a reality, but it absolutely would never have happened without YOU!

To celebrate, I have a pretty fun giveaway that I hope you’ll love!



I’m giving away a cookbook + Kitchenaid mixer to one lucky Add a Pinch friend.

To enter, just leave a comment below about your favorite celebration meal (or food)!

Giveaway ends Wednesday, April 19th at 11:59 PM ET. The winner will be selected at random and contacted by email.

Love ya!

  1. On celebrations we most of the time have beef fillet with green beans and potatoes. And of course a nice dessert, maybe panna cotta, ice cream, chocolate mousse or anything else.

  2. I’m the type of person that will use any excuse to celebrate – life is too short to not have fun! For every celebration, I try to make something different, but chocolate cake is always highly requested – thank you for the recipe, by the way! Every time I make it, it is always a huge hit.

  3. My favorite meal is “Crawfish Etoufee’ ” Crawfish tails can be bought at Walmart (Freezer Section” buuuut you must make a DARK roux….It takes 22 to24 minutes…Can’t rush it U’ll burn it Guess what? Start over!!!! Come back to me. I’ll talk U through it if need be. Nic

  4. Our traditional Easter meal is simple, but good! I love how my kids are disappointed if these items are not on the table! Traditions are great to have as a family :). We have ham, scalloped potatoes, fresh green beans and angel food cake with cream cheese frosting!

  5. For my birthday a couple years ago, I had a dinner party with only appetizers. I always seem to fill up on the appetizers anyway, so I just made it the whole meal! It was one of my favorite celebrations.

  6. Being of Italian decent I love a good lasagna and ciappino for the Christmas holyday. I enjoy the full preparation of Thanksgiving as well, been preparing turkey for about 45 years.

  7. I just love Robyn Stone recipes. My fav by far is the Carrot Cake Sheet Cake. AWESOME! Give it a try! Thank you for sharing your recipes Robyn!

  8. Our family favorite celebration dinner consist of baked steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, and hot rolls! Usually we have
    birthday cake as dessert because this is the menu requested for almost all our family birthdays!

  9. I enjoy preparing traditional holiday meals for my family. When my husband and I celebrate a special occasion, we go to our favorite restaurant for either crab cakes or salmon served over sweet potato/cranberry hash.

  10. Season that it is, we’ve almost always had Roasted leg of lamb for Easter. The sides have changed over the years, sprouts,chard… mashed, wild rice, quinoa.

  11. I am such a foodie and love all things food, lol, but one of my favorite go-to celebration meals is charcoal grilled bone-in ribeyes, bacon wrapped asparagus, baked potatoes, green salad, and homemade cheesy loaf. This meal seems to fit any occasion, any time of the year and is always a crowd-pleaser.

  12. Well, I don’t have a “Go To Celebration Meal” because I love all kinds of food! I do, however, have a “GO TO CELEBRATION CAKE”. The BEST EVER CHOCOLATE CAKE recipe that I love and is the only recipe I will ever use for chocolate cake. So much so, I’ve made it more than 7 or 8 times already and have a request from a traveling guest to make it again at the end of May lol. But wait! I discovered Robyn’s BEST EVER YELLOW CAKE…yum yum yum. This is officially my go to yellow cake recipe that I’ve made twice so far. This is my first stop when needing a cake recipe or just something different when it comes to desserts. I still have to dive into Robyn’s weekly meals…they look awesome.

  13. One of my favorite celebration foods is Mac n cheese, and it pairs well with steak, baked Chicken, catfish, spare ribs or just alone. I love it!

  14. Easter is my favorite celebration. Love spring flowers, lamb and chick cookies, dyed eggs, church, children feeling special in new clothes, etc! Most of all … “optimistic happiness” is in the air.

  15. My all-time favorite celebration meal is surf and turf: a perfect medium-rare ribeye with a lobster tail on the side. Mmmmm.

  16. Visiting from Christy’s blog and your friend green tomato recipe…which looks marvelous! My husband loved my fried green tomatoes, which I haven’t made since his death, but your recipe tips the scales. There’s a nice seafood restaurant, Mr. Fish, in Myrtle Beach, SC, that always has friend green tomatoes on menu and is delicious as well. I mean, seriously, fried green tomatoes and sweet iced tea…is there a better combination?
    I think not. lol

  17. My favorite celebration meal is any meal where my family is together and we can enjoy the day sitting at the dining table talking, eating and of course having a few sips of wine. I would say that I am a fan of small dishes that can be shared. This creates more of a social dining experience and this is what I truly enjoy experiencing with friends and family.

  18. My favorite way to celebrate is with cake! You have the best vanilla and chocolate cake recipes!!!! Always delicious and moist!

  19. My favorite celebration meal is a petite filler pan seared with a toasted crossiant under it. Topped with poached egg a super lemony hollandais sauce and a dash of cayenne pepper. Favorite dessert…… any and all homemade with a particular love for French pastries

  20. I just made your yellow cake with chocolate frosting – YUM!!! That was the BEST cake I have ever made! I told my Sister in Law that your recipes were good – when she called me with a hankering for yellow cake and chocolate frosting. I looked yours up and it was a winner!! My favorite celebration meal is probably Thanksgiving because there is SO much to cook and I LOVE to cook!!

  21. Congratulations on your book! My favorite celebration meal is Thanksgiving, but I love any occasion that gets my grown daughters back home! I look for things to celebrate!

  22. My favorite celebration food is definitely cake! I have made your best chocolate cake many times and have used it as a base for other cakes as well like spiced Mexican chocolate cake! I look forward to trying your other Cakes too.

  23. I love a good baked spaghetti with a big homemade salad with lots of vegetables! Also homemade garlic rolls!

  24. Hi Robyn, Thank you so much for this fun contest! A couple of years ago, I googled Best Chocolate Cake recipe and came upon your site and recipe for the “Best Ever Chocolate Cake” (and buttercream icing, yum!). It sounded so good, and I appreciated your comments, layout and gorgeous pics. Well, I made it for my daughter’s 2nd birthday (in the form of Minnie Mouse complete with a polka dot bow, which turned out great!) and it sure lived up to its name! Since then, I’ve been trying your other great recipes and excited to get my hands on your new cookbook. Congratulations!!

  25. My favorite meal is one that is something grilled and served outside. Summer meals are especially delicious and memorable when enjoyed on the deck watching the sunset. There is something about summer that slows down the pace and makes for special memories when a alfresco meal is shared. Happy almost summer!
