True Blood

Throwing a True Blood-Themed Halloween Party? Check Out Official Recipes and Enter to Win Truebie Swag! (PHOTOS)

We won’t be hosting True Blood Season 6 premiere parties anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean we can’t eat and drink Bon Temps-style!

You don’t have to have a do-rag like Lafayette or a smoke monster like Terry to cook Merlotte’s food, either — you just need a copy of True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites From Bon Temps. And luckily, you can win one right here at Wetpaint Entertainment!

To help you prepare for your Halloween parties and equally-scary Thanksgiving dinners with your extended family, we’re giving away a copy of the new cookbook, featuring 85 original recipes created by New Orleans chef Marcelle Bienvenu.

But wait, there’s more! Two other winners will receive a True Blood cutting board or apron from HBO’s new cookware line. To enter, just send us your most creative True Blood party idea by Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 to!

Three lucky Truebies will chosen, but everyone’s a winner here. As a preview, click the gallery below to see three recipes from the new True Blood cookbook, and then hit our inbox with your best shot. Good luck!

Here's how to enter for your chance to win:

Send an email to telling us your most creative True Blood party idea. A maximum of one (1) Sweepstakes entry for each individual is permitted for each weekly online entry opportunity. An entrant who exceeds this entry limitation will have each of the multiple entries submitted invalidated for prize drawing/consideration hereunder, and such conduct may result in the disqualification of the entrant from any and all participation in this Sweepstakes (as determined by Sponsor in the exercise of its sole discretion). All Internet access and usage charges are the sole responsibility of the entrant. If for any reason the Internet portion of the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other cause(s) which corrupts or affects the administration, fairness, integrity, safety or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, then Wetpaint reserves the right, exercisable at any time in its sole discretion, to terminate, modify or suspend the Internet portion of the Sweepstakes. All eligible online entries received by Sponsor before the Internet portion of the Sweepstakes becomes inoperable will be included in the random drawing described in the first paragraph under the “Prize Drawing” section below. Wetpaint is not responsible for any problems or technical malfunctions of any telephone network or lines, computer online systems, servers or providers, computer equipment, software, failure of any email or entry to be received by Wetpaint on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or at any website, or any combination thereof, including (without limitation) any injury or damage to entrant's or any other person's computer-related to or resulting from participation or downloading any materials in this Sweepstakes. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the person who submits any on-line entry hereunder, an eligible electronic Sweepstakes entry will be considered made by the authorized account owner of the email address submitted at the time of entry. Entries generated by robots or scripts or other automated devices are considered to be a direct violation of the Rules and the policies of this Sweepstakes and will result in the immediate and automatic disqualification from this Sweepstakes of any and all associated entries.

The prizes scheduled to be awarded in this Sweepstakes (pursuant to the random drawing procedure described in the immediately succeeding paragraph) are:

Prize (1 awarded):
True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites From Bon Temps Cookbook

Prize (1 awarded):
True Blood-branded apron

Prize (1 awarded):

The Prizes (or any other prize awarded hereunder) cannot be assigned, transferred, exchanged or redeemed for cash; provided, however, that Wetpaint specifically reserves the right (exercisable at any time and for any reason, in Wetpaint's sole discretion) to substitute a different item(s) in place of the Prizes, such substitute item(s) to be of substantially equivalent or greater value than the approximate retail value of the Prizes.

During the Promotional Period, eligible Sweepstakes entries received online at the Website will create the Sweepstakes entry pool. On approximately Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, or on some other date (as determined by Wetpaint) following the conclusion of the Promotional Period, three (3) potential recipients of the Prizes will be selected by means of a random drawing conducted by Wetpaint (or its designee) from among all eligible entries contained in the Sweepstakes entry pool. All decisions of Wetpaint regarding the Prize drawing and any and all other aspects of the Sweepstakes shall be final, binding and non-appealable. The odds of any Sweepstakes participant receiving a Prize (or any other prize awarded hereunder) will be determined by the total number of eligible Sweepstakes entries received. Such odds are equal regardless of the method of entry into the Sweepstakes.
