We're just a month away from the big launch of our very first book, The Kitchn Cookbook, and we can hardly wait to put it in your hands! But you can get a sneak peek right now, when you pick up the October issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray. Our friends there created a wonderful feature around some of our favorite kitchen tips (and recipes) from the book.
And that's not all — Every Day with Rachael Ray is also hosting a monthlong Instagram event, and we're in on it too! It's called The Love Your Kitchen Challenge — come join us! Read on for all the details, including the $2500 kitchen upgrade sweepstakes, and the first week's challenge assignments!
The Love Your Kitchen Challenge
Starting today, you're invited to take your kitchen to the next level through one easy change a day. Maybe you just finished our Kitchn Cure and your kitchen needs a few final touches. Perhaps you moved recently and want to learn to love your new space, or maybe you need an entirely fresh start. Or you love your kitchen to pieces already and want to show it off to thousands of fellow readers.
Take the Challenge, and by the end, we promise you’ll love your kitchen more than ever!

A few lucky readers will also win a copy of our brand-new book, The Kitchn Cookbook! It comes out October 7, and you'll be the first to get it.
