Update (5/20/12): Congratultions RachelWM! Random.org chose you as the winner of the Baked Explorations Cookbook! I'll be emailing you to get your mailing address, and you'll have four days to respond!
One year ago today, I published my first post on Making Michael Pollan Proud. Now here we are, one year and 130 posts later.
It's been an interesting year. There have been explosions and meals that were far too ambitious (yes, those were all made for one night). I've joined baking groups only to realize that the "make this and post about it on this date" thing doesn't really fit into my schedule.
I've consumed more chocolate and peanut butter than I knew was possible.
And today, one year in, I'm ready to try something new. A cookbook giveaway!
I want to share with you a cookbook I'm just crazy about that I received a year ago.
It's a cookbook that really introduced me to the whole blogging community, full of bake-along groups, local bake shops, and innovative twists on favorite recipes. It's sparked all of these recipes on my blog, including the cookies I brought to the Food Bloggers Bake Sale a few weeks back.
You can win your own copy! No, not my copy. A new, clean one that's not covered in flour and butter and post-it notes. Or, win a copy for a lucky friend if you already have one!
Here's how to enter:
1) Leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite cookbook is and why! Make sure you leave your email address (it will be kept private!), or make sure I have some other way to contact you (through your blog, etc.).
2) For an additional chance to enter, follow me on Pinterest, and leave a comment here letting me know you are following me!
I'll ship the cookbook anywhere, but if you're far away it might take awhile to get to you! This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. on May 18, 2012, so make sure to get your entries in before then! The winner will be chosen via random.org. I'll contact the winner on May 19, and they will have 4 days to respond with a shipping address. If there's no response, a new winner will be chosen and contacted.
