Sugarbaby Book Giveaway

Happy Wednesday! Really happy for me because I am done with my holiday baking, all baskets are wrap, some of them delivered and the rest will make their way out tomorrow and Friday.
I am tired. I am happy. Nothing like a homemade gift for the holidays.

I wanted to thank you. Thank you for taking the time and reading my little blog, for leaving sweet comments, sending me nice and also not so nice emails, well sometimes..
As a thank you to my readers I am giving away Sugarbaby by Gesine Bullock-Prado.I love Gesine's books, they are well written, with great recipes and put together in a wonderful funny manner. She has a great blog "Confections of a (Closet) Master Baker".

 In her own words about this book...
"It's a book about working with sugar but it's not a candy book".

I have actually opted out of it this year. I usually make all kinds of cookies and candy but have been having a rough year and can't quite get into the spirit. darlabeck@yahoo.com

What a great giveaway, Kathia! I've made several batches of fudge and I'm making a new cookie this year - very, very, very addictive. Not good for my diet, but very good for gift giving :).

For Christmas day I'm making a cranberry orange cheesecake!

Maureen said...

Jenniffer said...

I have been making some cupcakes and macaroons, and I peeled a ton of oranges to make some home made orangecello. I drank more than I gave away, but I did give some away!! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

Not entering the giveaway, just wanted to say I'm happy that you are caught up and ready for the holidays. That fudge you made looks great!

P.S. If you don't stop reading that book you will probably find yourself baking right through the holidays LOL

I am making fudge for my step-dad, he would not think it was Christmas if I did not make it for him.
