Holiday Cookbook Giveaway!


Christmas time's a-coming and in the spirit of holiday giving I'm wrapping up some of my favorite cookbooks for YOU!


Decorating Cookies is written by cookie-making guru Bridget of Bake at 350.  It's such a beautiful book with big, glossy images.  You'll have no trouble creating cookie masterpieces with her clear instructions and tips for success! I'm seriously in love with those mushroom cookies on the cover!


Desserts in Jars. I am a huge fan of this!  It's by Shaina Olmanson who writes Food for my Family. Not only do you get great recipes to put into the jars, you get a primer on choosing the right jars and instructions how to fill them properly. Such a fun book!


Sugarliciousis by Meahgan Mountford who writes The Decorated Cookie. She does crafty things with all kinds of sweets, but you'll flip for her marshmallow art! I also love her cupcake ideas in this book (pictured above).


The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook!  Lindsay Landis of Love and Olive Oil has created the ultimate guide to making your cookie dough dreams come true!  It's filled with all kinds of sweets, but I've been eyeing those cookie dough won-tons ever since I first opened the book.  I got to meet Lindsay at my book signing in Nashville and she was so sweet to me (despite my awkwardness), and she even signed my copy of her book!


From the first time I laid hands on the puffy cover, I've been thoroughly smitten with Shauna Sever's Marshmallow Madness book.  I love her voice on Piece of Cake (her blog), and the book definitely has the same upbeat personality.  You'll find everything you need here for homemade marshmallow success, and even some eyebrow wagging flavors like mango-chili-lime and fuzzy  navel.


The Essential James Beard Cookbook is a compilation of James Beard's essential recipes- in every category. The desserts section is really nice, especially if you're in need of some good basic recipes. I will certainly use this book for dinner party fare. This book has tried and true favorites and you can count on me making that Irish Whiskey Trifle very soon.


SprinkleBakes: Dessert Recipes to Inspire Your Inner Artist! My book!  It's true - I just won't be happy until everyone has a copy. Above are two Christmasy recipes from the book; Sugar Plums and my wintery hard candy Snow Apples.


The last book isn't a cookbook, it's a children's book! Author Christina Cody and Illustrator Heather Ozee have teamed up to create an inspiring book that encourages children to read.  It's called Monster Reader!  It's truly a cute book and the important message comes across in a really fun way.  I was asked to create a recipe for "Monster Cupcakes" and the recipe can be found in the back of Monster Reader.

This contest is open worldwide. Winners will be contacted after the contest has ended via email.  Enter below:
