By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the One Pot Blogger Cooking Party I’m participating in with 19 fellow bloggers. It’s a 3 week blogging event to promote Emeril Lagasse’s new book Sizzling Skillets and Other One Pot Wonders which is being sponsored by Morrow Cookbooks.
So far I’ve made three recipes from this book; all equally delicious. We’ve been asked to limit the actual recipes we can share, otherwise why would you buy the book. So I’ve only posted one full recipe; Tuscan White Bean Soup. But don’t worry there will be two more that I will hopefully share with you over the next few weeks. But here’s something even better. One lucky reader of this post is going to win their very own copy of Sizzling Skillets and Other One Pot Wonders. But just in case you haven’t been enticed by what you’ve seen so far I’d like to share this with you:
This is Emeril's Eggplant Involtini. What makes this recipe different than any of the hundreds of others out there is that the eggplant is broiled and baked…never fried. Trust me it’s got the same great taste you get from the traditional fried version but not all the added fat and calories. Which I do think is important. Thin layers of eggplant stuffed with a mixture of balsamic, bread crumbs, tomatoes, herbs, pine nuts and mozzarella…you won’t even notice they aren’t fried. And just think of the time savings in the kitchen. I was able to whip a pan of these up in minutes; baked them for about 20 minutes more to melt the cheese and I had a wonderful vegetarian dinner.
Ok…on to the contest. Here’s what you need to do. Leave a comment on this post telling me why you want to win this book. Maybe you’re a huge fan of Emeril (well that’s a given) or maybe you have been waiting for a book with One-Pot recipes. Whatever the reason it doesn’t matter; just let me know. Now if you’d like to “Kick it Up a Notch” you can leave me separate comments for each of the following that you do.
1. Like Emeril Lagasse on Facebook
2. Follow Emeril on Twitter
3. Friend me on Facebook

Contest ends Sunday September 18th at midnight EST. Winner will be picked randomly.
Disclosure: I was provided a copy of the cookbook, a set of the serving dishes by zak!, a bottle of Emeril’s spices, and a small grocery reimbursement. Upon completion I will also receive a few of Emeril’s other cookbooks and one blogger will be chosen to win a T-Fal slow cooker. All opinions shared are my own.
