The Anita Chu books! I love her blog but whenever I look for the books, the bookstore is always out and the library doesn't carry them. Thanks for the great contest!

It's a toss up between Cake Pops and Big, Fat Cookies... The truth is that I would love them all!

These all look awesome. I think the one I'd be most excited about would be the See's candy cookbook. Making candy is so much fun.

Ohh...It's really hard to choose from that list. Probably See's Candies, but that might change tomorrow.

How could you not be excited about Whoopie Pies?!?! So far I have mastered chocolate, pumpkin, and banana. But I am always looking for new flavors to try.

TARTINE! TARTINE!!!!! I worked at a bakery this summer and (shhh!) we used a lot of these recipes! I've taken it out from the library a few times now, always sad to return it. It would be great to have a copy of my own! Good luck!
