Wonderful Family Recipes From The Cookbooks of Barry C. Parsons and a Giveaway! (Canada)

Sunday, May 19, 2019


I first learnt of Barry C. Parsons and his cookbooks, through an Instagram picture I came across for a cake recipe. The cake looked so good, catching my eye, that I looked more into info on this recipe and hunted down the web site- Rock Recipes. Soon I was to find even more yummy looking recipes for meals, desserts and snacks. The recipes looked yummy but they also were simple- simple ingredients and easy to fix. I like this! I love recipes that are down to earth, comforting, and recipes that mom or gramma used to make. 



Rock Recipes.com has over 1600 easy and delicious recipes for everyday cooking and baking and more get added every single week. (Sign up for the newsletter on their site!)



Going forward I had the opportunity to review three of his books:
-Rock Recipes The Best Food From My Newfoundland Kitchen
-Rock Recipes Christmas
-Rock Recipes Cookies



I am still going through them, and trying recipes. I made carrot cookies in the photo above. 

The cookbooks are soft cover, and all the recipes have a color photo which it makes it so much nicer. I love seeing what I am making, don't you?

You can go to the web site right now and start checking out some of his great recipes, where you can search by Most Popular, Ingredient, By Category or recipes like the Moose Farts that are Newfoundland Inspired! Be sure to check them out. Cookbooks can be ordered through Amazon.


As well, yes, I kept the best till last, Barry is giving away one copy of Rock Recipes Cookies to one lucky Canadian!

A random draw will be made by Random.org from all entries received by end of day May 26, 2019.
