Thank You to My Cookbook Reviewers

In this special moment, I would like to give a great thank to three persons who have given their reviews to my First Book of Amerindo Kitchen in Series, titled Fabulous Leftover Turkey.

1. Cathy Mc.Kittrick, Lee Summit-Mo-USA
"Through the publishing of this book, Fida Abbott has shared her approach to American cooking through the eyes of someone fairly new to the United States. She brings forth fresh culinary ideas combined with personal tidbits that endear you to her and this ambitious effort."

2. Maria Coleman, Texas-USA (My Cookbook Giveaway Winner)-under the name of A Kid's Review
"Maroon-brown hard cover with that crispy-but-juicy look of the turkey and all the trimmings will surely bring up your appetite. "Fabulous Leftover Turkey", really?? With so many turkey recipes out there what makes this one stand out?

First, it's the creativity of the author, Fida Abbott, who smartly combine two great cultures: Indonesia, where she from, and America, where her husband from, into these recipes. The result? Ten great dishes that are easy to prepare.

Second, not like others, the author also shares her story of how she came up with recipe ideas and it's background. This makes cooking more enjoyable.

Third, pictures are nice. Even though they could be more attractive if they were more focussed and clearer. I personally like the setting and layout, even though in some pages margins are uneven. But it doesn't hurt much.

Four, this book is for everyone. I'm vegetarian, but that doesn't mean I cannot use this recipe book. It gives me confidence to play around with non-meat ingredients.

And last but not least, this board-book is a bit pricey. But you need to know that Fida Abbott donates her profit for cancer research. So, you'll get the great recipe book and doing a good deed at the same time. That's what's fabulous! I definitely will recommend it to you. Can't wait for another series, Fida!"(

3. BaikBear, Pennsylvania-USA
"Two words I can describe about this cookbook; attractive and creative. I enjoy the stories the author wrote. Photographs are great.

I hope she will publish the second book soon and keep supporting the others who are in needs."

Support independent publishing: buy this e-book on Lulu.

Also in this special moment, I would like to give my special thank you to Tresia Neve (West Virginia) and Maria Coleman (Texas) who had helped me to spread twenty postcards (ten for each person) to their friends and family, and Cathy for three postcards to her friends/family.

All my reviewers above and Tresia Neve have received six different Auntie Anne's Pretzels coupons (buy one get another one free) as the sponsor of this giveaway gifts. Of course my great thank to them could not be substituted with those coupons but at least, they could express my appreciation how big thank from me for their supports.

For the second book of Amerindo Kitchen in series will be written soon after I finish writing my first novel. I hope I can finish it by the end of next month.

To all of you who doesn't want to be left behind of my future great news; contest, giveaway, etc, please subscribe to this blog.

Thank you for your attention by visiting and reading this blog regularly.

Best Regards,
