Giveaway: The Secret Lives of Baked Goods

by 97495429 May 20, 2013


I love a good cookbook especially a beautifully designed one (do you see that gorgeous hand lettering?) filled with delicious dessert recipes. The Secret Lives of Baked Goods: Sweet Stories & Recipes for America's Favorite Desserts, by Jessie Oleson Moore is just that – one part recipe, one part beautiful design & photography, and one part history.

In the book, Jessie serves up classic recipes to some of my favorite sweets (including red velvet cake, animal crackers & doughnuts), but my favorite part of the book is definitely reading the back stories of these popular American treats. Did you know the chocolate chip cookie has only been around since 1937 and that the original animal-shaped animal crackers made their debut at the first world's fair held in America? Pretty cool, right?

Today I have 2 copies of the book away to 2 lucky readers*. To enter, simply use the Rafflecopter widget below (you may have to click over if you're using a reader). But if you just can't wait to get your hands on it, you can also pick up a copy right over hereGood luck!

P.S. For all of my fellow Philadelphians – Jessie will be signing copies of the book tomorrow evening at 6 o'clock at the Anthropologie on Walnut Street!

*Open to U.S. & Canada residents only.
