Cast Iron Cookbook Stand Giveaway


We have this bedroom sized room down in the unfinished area of our finished walk-out basement that was designated my “Holiday Room”.  I’m very thankful for the space because I remember having to store all of my holiday decorations up in a tiny attic in our first home.  Before that, it was a storage unit in the apartment complex we lived in.  Times have gotten easier, but with the space, and this decorating blog, has come stuff.  Lots and lots of stuff.  I do donate often, and I usually have a garage sale every other year, but still, all this decorating really adds up.  So, I got to thinking.  How about I invite my favorite gals from the “Thrifty Style Team” to join me in a “Grand Home Decor Giveaway” where we all give away 1 thrifty, or gently used item to 1 of our fabulous readers.  They loved the idea and I’m happy to say we have 11 items up for grabs below.  Before I get to everyone’s giveaway item, here’s my “Cast Iron Cookbook Stand Giveaway”…

This "Cast Iron Cookbook Stand" is so gorgeous and perfect for a kitchen island or sitting by your stove on the counter. She's giving it away!

I was going to put this gorgeous cast iron cookbook stand in my garage sale this Fall 😯 , but now I am so excited to be able to give it away to one of you!  I had this beauty on my counter for a couple years now, and I still really love it, but I’m trying to reduce the things on my island, and I usually look up recipes on my phone. I actually began sitting my husband’s iPad on it and it really worked great, but I still needed more room, so now it can be yours!

This cast iron cookbook stand can be used for cookbooks (notice the long paper weights to hold down the pages), paper recipes/cards, or even an iPad, or phone if desired.  It’s very high quality, and very heavy so it doesn’t tip over.  I think I’m starting to miss it the more I write about it  😯 .

Yes, it’s even adjustable so you can angle it at any level you need.  Look how cool it looks with a modern day iPad on it.  Hey, I wonder what that recipe for “Chicken Loretta” is all about on that iPad below…

  11. Ann says:

    When reading your recipe, it sounded so familiar to one my grandmother used to make. I looked in my old recipe box, and boy a few things are different, but pretty close. It brought a smile to my face, as I spent many times in the kitchen with my grandmother. Thanks so much for sharing, and brining back some wonderful memories:-)

  12. Donna Amedeo says:

  13. Kathy says:

    It looks delicious AND easy. I like that you can add more or less of the spices to please everyone’s taste! Kudos to you for a video that’s quick yet clear.

  14. carol bittner says:

    Oh Julie, thank you for this opportunity to win! I love your trivet and would love to see it on my counter. I enjoyed watching this video; it is precise, exact, easy and shows us just what to do! I know it is exactly how it will turn out because I have made this tasty recipe several times. My husband and I both agree it tastes great! I know when I prepare one of your recipes it’s going to be a keeper.

  15. Sue says:

    I cannot believe that was your first video! It was done so well. The Chicken Loretta looks delicioius! Super tasty and moist! Nothing worse than dry chicken! Cannot wait to give it a try! The cookbook stand is gorgeous! Anyone would be thrilled to win it! Love your blog!

  16. Jaci says:

    Your recipe for Chicken Loretta looks delish. Pinned for dinner this weekend. Your wonderful giveaway of the cast iron cookbook holder would be the perfect holder in my kitchen to hold cookbooks and my iPad when I cook. Thank you!

  17. Cindy Long says:

    What a great piece Julie! I love the sturdiness of cast iron pieces ☺

  18. Bliss says:

    So what you need is a iron stand in cell phone size. Bet somewhere, someone makes one!

  19. Carol says:

    The chicken recipe looks good. I guess the baking temperature is 350 (?), it would also be nice if estimated baking time could be included. Looks yummy!

    • Julie says:

      The video doesn’t give all of the ingredients, measurements, and timing, however the printable paper version has all of that in there for you. Thanks, Carol!

  20. I made your Chicken Lorreta and it was wonderful! Thank you for posting this recipe.

  21. Steph says:

    I pinned and watched the video thanks!

  22. PC says:

    The chicken would probably be good with pork chops too. I need that stand for a gift for my sister.

  23. Laurie Galloway says:

    You Rock, Red!!! I made your Chicken Loretta recently and the whole family flipped out! So moist and flavorful. Loved your quick video, showing step-by-step, just how easy to do. Thank you so much for a delicious & fool-proof, company-worthy chicken recipe. God Bless Aunt Loretta!!

    The recipe stand deserves a place of honor on my counter, holding my IPad, featuring–what else?–Chicken Loretta. I appreciate the opportunity to visit your fellow bloggers, too, and the chance to win this beautiful stand.

  24. Ellie says:

    Love the video and plan to try the chicken recipe. The stand is beautiful. I’d be able to put a magnifying sheet on the recipe, since I have MD. Tell your Dad I will be making his apricot pockets again today. His recipe is great. Thanks Julie

  25. Jane says:

    I don’t cook much, so I usually skip the recipes. But I think this one is one I can use, thank you. Love the book stand.

  26. Dorothy Mallick says:

    I had a big party for our veterans to honor them for their services and made your Chicken Loretta and it was a great hit. Most of our veterans as you know live alone and do not cook much and when they tasted your recipe they were impressed on how easy it is to make, so I gave each one of them the recipe. There were a lot of them who told me that they will make it for themselves at home. So just want to alert you that you have a lot of fans who will be making this recipe and will be following your blog. Would love to win your cast iron stand. Your new avid follower along with the veterans. Thank you.

  27. Vicky says:

    Great giveaway and video recipe!

  28. Chris says:

    You made me feel, “I can do this, Why didn’t I think of that.” I’m making it for dinner tonight!

  34. penny grieco says:

    wow julie! tried your recipe and it was fabulous! i too love the thigh of the chicken the best because it is so juicy and tender…i never would have thought to use mayonaise on it, but i guess that’s your secret ingredient…brilliant! i would love to have your book stand…i promise i will take good care of it…my kitchen has allot of black, so it will be the perfect finishing touch!!!

  35. Belinda Longwith says:

    Love the recipe, watched as much of the video as I could before it quit for some reason but looked simple to follow. I almost bought one of these book holders at a local flea market in our area. Plan to get it is it’s still there and if I don’t win this one. Thanks a bunch!!

  36. Ladybwlr says:

    Yummy..with Husband coming home from surgery, this will be a great recipe to fix during his recuperation!

  46. Kathy M. says:

    Oh, I could so use this cookbook stand when I am in the kitchen cooking. Love it!

  47. Rose says:

    I shared on Facebook. The video shows me just how easy and quick this is to make. I have to be gluten-free, could I just skip the gluten and just use mayo and spices?

  48. Charolette Graham says:

    Thanks for the recipe and video! I haven’t made it just yet, but it is on my Pinterest list of “Things To Try”! The best recipes are those that have been handed down and tried and tested!

    Love your blog!

  49. Danielle D. says:

    That looked good enough to make my 12 yr old vegetarian give great consideration to granting herself one last taste before a forever goodbye! I’d hate to be the cause of my daughter giving up on her newly dedicated diet, but a little renegotiating for PROTEINS sake wouldnt keep me up at night!

  50. Elaine McDonald says:

    Hi Julie – – I’ve made Chicken Loretta but I have to admit, your recipe looks much easier so I definitely will have to try it. Thanks for sharling. I’d love to win the cookbook stand – – however, I wouldn’t use it for a cookbook. My husband is a WW2 veteran and went on the South Florida Honor Flight about a year and a half ago. (I know this is way before your time – but we’re old – REALLY old!!) His guardian made him a picture album of the whole days events and your beautiful stand would make a perfect way to display it. Thanks again, Elaine

  51. Cathy Bartch says:

    So trying to eat healthy is not always easy; however, when one partner has diabetes and one heart disease you start looking for better recipes. I thought I had tried them all. Let’s face it you can only serve chickens so many ways your’s turned out great, even more important tasted great and was not too difficlt. Now i think I should be the big winner of the cookbook stand. It would look marvelous in my kitchen and in addition to that i would really use it. lost count of how many cookbooks I have. Thank you so much.


  52. Thanks for sharing the chicken recipe. Can’t wait to try it!

  53. joyce says:

    You make Chicken Loretta easy .I can not wait for the weekend for our family dinner 🙂

  54. Emily North says:

    Made the delicious chicken recipe but used breast and served over brown rice with roasted Brussels sprouts. The chicken was delicious and moist even using breast. Love the cookbook stand as I keep a cookbook out just for “pretty.” The rod iron would look great with my few McKenzie child’s pieces!!

  55. Oh my goodness. That looks amazing. Your first video??? Off to a great start, can’t wait to see more. Thank you so much the chance and good luck everyone on this fabulous gift.

  56. ivory says:

    Thanks Julia, your Chicken looks mouthwatering. You are so sweet to be giving so many wonderful giveaways at one time. You are rocking .

  57. Mary Roth says:

  66. Debra Matovic says:

    That video looks great and the recipe is so easy! I may have to make that this weekend for my family! Just one side comment. I understand an ad in the beginning, but an ad in the middle and at the end are a bit much. And that was the only negative I could find! 😉

  67. Leslie says:

    The video was quick, clear and made the dish look so tempting that I made it last night! Easy and Yummy – thanks and keep them coming! I was thinking of making an ipad stand for the kitchen — love this cast iron version!

  77. Sara Stennett says:

    I can’t wait to try Chicken Loretta! I use my phone for recipes constantly and would love your beautiful stand!

  78. Lisa says:

    I pinned as directed and watched the video which made me hungry and regretting that I didn’t have any chicken in the house! ? So I will be trying the chicken recipe soon, I appreciated that the video is short and to the point. I will be back to look around your blog and possibly subscribe. I prefer to check out blogs before subscribing to make sure it is something I will really enjoy. Thank you for this opportunity, I am absolutely in love with this wrought iron cookbook stand.

    Chicken Loretta looks good! I love a recipe that can be adapted to different tastes (the oregano would be a big NO for several family members).

  82. This giveaway was a fab idea! Thank you for all that you do for us!

  83. Kim Pipkin says:

    I collect cast iron since my mom died. I inherited hers and my grandmothers. I am now in love with anything CI! I’ve never tried Chicken Loretta, but the video made it look juicy and delicious. Cant’t wait to try out the recipe and hope I’m lucky enough to win the recipe holder!!

  84. Jane says:

    Interesting recipe, I’m not sure about the mayonnaise though. I like the video. I wish I could speed cook! BTW, that cookbook holder looks amazing and I would love to have that in my kitchen.

    • Julie says:

      Jane-there is a printable recipe available next to the video. The mayonnaise seals the chicken, helps give a crispy coating, and gives amazing flavor. Hundreds have tried it. I hope you do, too!

  85. Ali News says:

    Love the cookbook holder, it just might keep me from getting flour on my books or tablet , can’t wait to try the chicken recipe

  92. The chicken dish looks delicious and easy to prepare. One pan, yeah. Also like that the video and recipe are given without first writing a book about it. Some blogs headline a recipe and then blah blah blah about the. I want to read a recipe first so I can decide I am interested and then I can read all about how good it is.
