Enjoy your comments and recipes very much. I too am a fan of Kristin's blog and would like a copy of her latest book.

I'd love to win a copy of Kristin Espinasse's new book. I've read her first one, subscribe to her newsletter (which is how I found this blog, to which I've just subscribed). THANKS!

I'd love to win! Her first book was fabulous :-)


I would love to win a copy of the book. Thanks for the chance...and the recipe. :)

Blossoming in France by Kristin would be a good addition to my bookshelf of our French country house in Ariege - so I'll go for it even if I don't win.

Kate O'Kula

Provence has been blossoming in my soul ever since I visited 2 years ago. I want to go back... and I would love to enter this drawing to possibly win a copy of Kristin's Blossoming in Provence!
And what a sweet blog this is! Thanks to Kristin for paving the internet highway to you! Kate


I love Kristin's blog and would love to win a copy of Blossoming in Provence. Provence and the Loire Valley are my two favorite areas I have been so blessed to visit thus far. I can't wait to return and soak up some more French culture.

A la prochaine...

I would love to have Kristin's new book, Blossoming in Provence!!! I just retired from teaching French. I recently discovered her site, and love reading it!


I'd love to win a copy!! I love Kristin's blog!
Thanks for considering me!


Hi Lynn, I have to agree with the other comments on your blog, you should start writing your own book and publish your recipes, I bet it would be a great hit! I've been kind of away from the blog world due to my pregnancy and pretty soon I'll start my own business, I missed reading your blog! That "blossoming in provence" must be a great book, would love to win a copy. Have a fantastic day!


Oh, I would love to win a copy of her book!

Julia Brown

Would love to be there!

Hope it's not too late to enter the giveaway! I've been reading Kristin's blog for a while now. Recommended by you I think! Oh, and I agree, those are not the most appetizing of American ingredients.

I would really love to win a copy of Kristin's book "Blossoming in Provence". I used to be an expat living in Paris and miss my "French" life.

My mother was first generation American. She stuffed turkey with French bread cubes, aromatics, giblets and oysters. I can only assume she learned this bread dressing from her mother whom I never knew. Her parents were from somewhere around Toulouse

Sue Campbell

Please choose me to receive a copy of Kristin's new book! I found her first book by chance in the library and I have been hooked on her blog ever since. So happy to find your "blob" and the chance to vicariously experience life in your part of France. It's almost like being there!


Love your blog! I am a newbie here, who was just referred by a friend. She also mentioned Krisitins books...and I would love to be entered for a chance to win one! Ciao!

Alicia Deavens

J'aime vraiment le livre "Words In A French Life"! Je sais que le nouveau livre de Kristin "Blossoming In Provence" est merveilleux aussi. J'espère que je gagne!
Merci et Bonne Chance tout le monde!


I love this glimpse inside the French grocery store to see the "foreign" section. Americans don't think of ourselves as foreigners much, do we? Reminds me of a few years ago, was talking with a woman from Africa and I said, "I love your accent." And she said, "Oh, I love yours too!" I said, "Oh, I don't have an accent." She laughed and said, "You think everyone else in the world has an accent except you."

Touche...thanks for the gratin recipe, sounds so easy and perfect for a weeknight.
