Fall Y’all….



It’s here folks! It’s Monday and that means it’s time for the Fall Y’all Bloggy Giveaway hosted by Shannon at her new giveaway blog.


If it’s not already clear to you there are giveaways going on all over the place and the place to find them is at Shannon’s latest blog.



Welcome to my blog!!

I’m Elaine Aka Mummymac and I’m a blogger from Northern Ireland (which it appears is quite a rare thing) 😉

I’m also a stay at home mum and it also appears that is quite a rare thing too!

Enough about me ………….. on with the business……….


and so this is the giveaway with many thanks to the kind editor at Appletree Press I am giving away a copy of An Irish Country Kitchen bycovmed0191.jpg Mary Kinsella.


I recently purchased a copy of this book as my husband was taking an annual trip to the USA. He normally takes something of an Irish theme to his hostess and this year we decided on this lovely book. The book impressed me so much I decided to contact the people at Apple Tree Press who willingly donated a copy for this give-away.

Click on over the the Apple Tree website where you will find many books on an Irish theme, whether it be recipe books, history of Ireland or books of a more general nature they have quite a brochure.

And so to be in with a chance to win this book – here’s what you have to do.

Simply leave a comment to this post before Saturday 3 November at 10.00pm (GMT) and you will be automatically entered. I will make the drawing some time after this time using this handy random number generator and then post the results here and also at Shannon’s site.


This contest is open to participants from UK, IRELAND, USA & CANADA. (Because I’m kind that way).

Be sure to check out all the other giveaways going on over at Shannon’s all week.


** note to the regulars – I’m taking a few days off blogging, have a good week**

** If you have a copy of Bunyan’s classic Pilgrim’s Progress on your shelf please check out my previous post**

  1. I’d love to add this to my cookbook collection! (PS I’m in Israel, which would probably be cheaper than shipping to the US, but if that’s a problem I can give you a US address easily.)

  2. I took an Irish Poetry class in college where we had a variety of delicious Irish foodstuffs on the last day of class, and I have loved Irish cooking ever since. But I don’t have any good recipes to try making any myself.

    So, I’d love to be entered to win this. Cookbooks are fun, and an Irish cookbook sounds fabulous!

  3. Thank you for being so kind as to open your contest to a number of countries. I am a Canadian, who is living in the U.S., who spent nearly a month in Ireland a few years back and loved every minute of it (with the exception of a trip to the hospital in Dublin, but that is beside the point). Does that qualify me to enter? (grin) I would love to see this book. It sounds wonderful. Thank you so much for hosting a give-away.

  4. I love all things irish….can you tell by my name? still not sure? how about that my sister’s name is Erin?? or that my maiden name is Kelly, lol.

    Count me in!

  5. Books are always great additions to anyones home. Thanks for going to the trouble to get this one for your giveaway, crossing my fingers now!

  6. How lovely! My hubbie and I spent 8 months living, working, and traveling in Europe/Uk. We lived in Edinburgh and took a really nice trip to Ireland. We stayed in some very friendly B & B’s. I’m hoping the book has a recipe for that yummy Irish Bread we kept getting in the morning! : )

  7. I would loooove to have this so I can learn some nice Irish recipes, especially to serve to my stepmom who is as Irish as can be–first generation American citizen.
