Now, here are the winners of MLLA #65:

I have used Random number generator, to draw a winner. The first draw was #2 – Shaheen. She will be getting  “The Everything Mediterranean Cookbook”, sponsored by Susan of ‘The Well Seasoned Cook’ at her own expense. Congratulations Shaheen!!!


Since Shaheen lives outside of the US, I did a second draw for the six pack assortment of  Hurst Beans products, that will be delivered within the US. The second draw was #5 – Krithi Karthi. Congratulations Krithi!!


Thanks to everyone who has participated in this Legume Love Party and making this a success. Also thanks again to Susan and Lisa for keeping this series going for all of us to share and learn new recipes that feature legumes. Once again congratulations to both the winners. I will be sending an email asking for shipping address details very soon. Please watch out and until then….Happy Cooking!!
