Absolutely Chocolate Cookbook Winner

Congratulations Card - Mommy Five OCard Created by Mommy Five-O

Thanks to everyone who left sweet comments regarding my 2nd Blogaversary and to all who entered the Absolutely Chocolate Cookbook Giveaway, sponsored by Taunton Press! As I anticipated, this book was a huge hit – we had close to two hundred entries, and over a hundred tweets! I hope that you will add this book to your must have list and your gift list this year – this is truly one of the best specialty cookbooks I have read in a long time! I will be continuing to share recipes and tips from this book in the upcoming months, so chocolate lovers, take note!

As always, I wish I had multiple prizes to give away, but there can only be one winner. After verifying all of the entries – manually numbering them (if you know how to automate this in WordPress – please let me know!) – and letting the Random Number generator do its thing – I’m excited to announce that the winner is …

(drumroll please) …

  1. Thank you soooo much! I’m really excited about this book because anyone who reads my blog knows that I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE chocolate!

    Oh, and you said that my “sidebar is highly caloric,” but that is only the desserts. Just close your eyes when you see them LOL Um, good luck with that too! LMBO

    Thanks again!!!

      I don’t know – I seem to recall some mighty delicious looking breakfast recipes that didn’t look light diet-fare!

      I know you will love this book – can’t wait to see what you make!

    Stopped by from Sunday’s Blog Hop just to say hi and say have a great day or night! Go to doctor tomorrow to get stitches out so will let you know what happens. Pharmacist at Rite Aid said right side is very infected so I am AWOL! I have been taking antibiotics all week 2x a day but I guess it was not enough. If something can go wrong, it always does with me. Can’t catch a break to save my life! Talk to ya tomorrow.
