It's so hard to pick a favorite dessert!!! Maybe chocolate covered strawberries.

Also, you didn't say this was an extra entry, but it's my birthday, so I think I should get an extra one anyway:)

Oh you tempt a girl just saying chocolate! What a fun book!
Thanks for the super awesome giveaway!

Kristie said...

Just went to her website. I forgot she did the book Band of Sisters. Now that one is added back to the list of things to read, eventually.
And I loved all her tips about her kids and helping them learn to love reading. Some of those tips are things I need to start doing!
Thanks!

It's so hard to pick a favorite dessert. I'm pretty much a sucker for cupcakes of any kind, so I'll have to go with that!

A favorite dessert? I really need to pick one? Well, I do like chocolate chip cookies....and ice cream.

Scott said...

Oh, love, love, love. Great giveaway! I'll bet this is a great cookbook! Just what a need more ways to consume chocolate! :)

Amber said...

I like that she has a grammar post. I like correct grammar (even though I know I don't use correct grammar all the time, which also bugs me). For example, did you know that "snuck" is not a word? Eg. "Last week, I snuck into the movie theater". The correct way to say it is "Last week, I sneaked into the movie theater." So many people say "snuck" that I thought it was a word until I typed it into Word and it was red-lined. I had to Google it. Oh and "nother"....yeah, that's a whole "nother" issue that bothers me. :)

I LOVE dessert. But hands down, my alltime fav. is cheesecake. Most specifically, Red Velvet Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. Just can't beat that!
