Give Away - Chronicle Books Happy Haulidays!

Wow, Chronicle Books is having a amazing give away!

Post a list of Chronicle Books valued at up to $500 that you’d like to haul in, and you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing to WIN your list of books! And, one of your readers who comments on the post will win the list too! Last day to submit entries is December 10th!

$500 worth of books!! Okay, here are my choices, I am choosing mostly cook books as I'd love to learn to cook better! I'm so grateful that my husband cooks everyday (I'd probably cooked a total of 5 dinners during our 6 years of marriage...)

Be sure to leave a comment if you wish to win these books (if I win, you win these books too!)

  3. Is it horribly uncool of me to admit that I've never had a macaron? But that I want to desperately? There are just none to be found in my neck o' the woods. I guess I should attempt one on my own!

    Thanks for sharing your list!

    I love Cookbooks too..

  5. Even though I have quite a few cookbooks on my own list, every single one is different than yours, which shows what a great selection there is to choose from! I would be in cooking heaven with THIS list! Good luck!


  6. What a great list of books!


  7. Great list! If I got these, I'd have to start cooking regularly, huh? Good luck to us both!

  9. Oh my goodness! If you win all these books, do they include a wheelbarrow for you to wheel you and your loved ones around in after you learn to cook all this great food? ;)

    Good luck!

  10. Thanks for stopping by! Good luck to you and to me! Love your list as well. :)

  11. What a great selection of cookbooks-I actually think that Opera would be easy to make at home-time consuming and maybe not as pretty-the chef had some great tricks to getting it look that way.

    I am going to post the recipe in the New year.

    Have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for stopping by.
