Great list - their cookbooks are amazing. Such a generous giveaway. Thanks for the entry.

Oh, wow - hardest decision I might've faced since the Chelsea Market in New York! I *think* it'd have to be Gingerbread, as it's my favourite specific sort of cake, and more ideas on variations would be brilliant. But it's a very tough call - the challenge of tasty content versus cute titles (also with tasty content, no doubt!)...

What a great line up! I've tried a recipe from Southern Cakes and it was amazing, but I'm looking forward to checking out Baking for all Occasions. I know some bakers in the fam that would love to share the loot :)

As a southern gal, I'm most excited about Southern Pies. I have a neighbor firmly in the Team Pie camp who'd love to help me test out recipes!!

Mmmm… torn between Southern Pies and Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey. Southern Pies may win out by just the tiniest little margin, because… pie. Yum.

Love your blog--I just finished putting up my Christmas tree and it has dozens of unicorn ornaments I've collected over the past 30 years or so. Your list is very different--for the most part--from the ones I selected <b><a href="http://ladysilk.net/regency-romance-talk/win-a-shopping-bag-full-of-chronicle-books-up-to-500-00/">See My List Here</a></b> but a seeing the different choices is half the fun. I would absolutely love to win them all.
This is a great list of books!
