Happy Monday, friends!

I thought I'd start off your week with something I don't do very often: a giveaway! During my Kickstarter campaign, one of the prizes was a pack of recipe cards (not included in the book), designed to prepare as a dinner party menu – plus a game plan on how to prep everything ahead. It was so fun working with my awesome cookbook photographer Signe Birck and designer Katie King Rumford again to create these beautiful cards. I already sent them out to my Kickstarter donors, but I have a few more sets and I'd love to give them away!

The menu is perfect for cold weather – wild mushroom crostini with ricotta, pork chops braised with apples and red onions, roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary, red cabbage and Brussels sprouts slaw, and gluten-free baked pumpkin puddings. If you're in the northeast like me, you still have another month of winter to look forward to, so you might as well make the most of it by hosting a cozy, wintery dinner party before spring hits.

To win a set of cards, just comment below about why you love throwing dinner parties (feel free to share a brief story!) and why this menu sounds like something you'd like to try. I'll pick 3 winners and send you a Winter Dinner Party Recipe Cards set AND I'll publish the responses of the 3 winners on the blog. Have fun!
