first book review and giveaway!!

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner, Jenny "Lemke" Anwar! Please check your email for notification and send your address back within 48 hours. 

Thank you to everyone who joined the giveaway! Stick around because I will be having more cool giveaways in the coming weeks! 

Giveaway winner was chosen by http://random.org 





 

I'm happy to finally host my first giveaway here on Pink. My first item is a book and it's just in time for the Christmas Holiday! This book was sent to me from Colleen's Book Nook.  The item is Christmas Baking for Children from Usborne, written by Fiona Patchett and beautifully illustrated by Nancy Leschnikoff.


This book has 47 pages to guide you through a great Christmas baking experience. The illustrations will appeal to both young and old alike. It is written so that kids can follow along easily, but it is so much fun that any adult who enjoys baking will love it, too. It has a baking skills section to start you off in the right direction, and then jumps right into the recipes. There are recipes for cookies, shortbread, brownies, cupcakes and more. It also has sections devoted to toppings and fillings, decorating ideas, and wrapping ideas if you decide to give out your treats as a gift.

The illustrations are very cute. The cookies and other treats look delicious! Any child would love to help create or receive these special Christmas desserts and any adult can follow the easily written directions. This book is good for beginners, like me, but anyone can gain inspiration from the beautiful pictures of the finished products.

A few notable recipes include:
  • White Chocolate Brownies
  • Chocolate Christmas Cake
  • Stained Glass Window Cookies
  • Shortbread
I will be leaving the giveaway open until Friday at 12pm PST - so that I can mail it out that afternoon and you can get it with plenty of time for some Christmas Baking!
