Baking Bites Cookbook Giveaway

by on October 22, 2009 · 279 comments

Here’s another chance at a free book! Nicole from Baking Bites is giving away a copy of The Baking Bites cookbook.


I got a sneak peak at The Baking Bites Cookbook last month. The recipes are scratch, the design is bright and cheery, and the directions are concise yet thorough enough for novice bakers to understand. And what I was really happy to hear was that all but 4 of the book’s 51 recipes were completely new. Nicole, who manages to post almost every day, was able to set aside her favorite original ideas and save them for the book.

What’s also admirable is that Nicole chose to see the project through from start to finish and published the book in a way that it is both beautiful and affordable. With a few mouse clicks, you can buy a copy for $16.95, and if you buy two copies, you save a few bucks. And trust me, it’s pretty enough to give as a gift.

So buy a copy, and win a second for a gift. I’m giving one copy away this weekend. For a chance at a free book, leave a comment saying your favorite brand of chocolate. I’ll pick a random winner at noon on Saturday, so make sure you get your comment in before then. Good luck! It’s a great book and I’m very proud of Nicole.

I have to say that when I’m craving a straight-up chocolate bar, Hershey’s is king.

i know it’s not “chocolate” but i LOVE LOVE LOVE ghirardelli white chocolate. yum! it makes my mouth sing and my heart warm. (and my thighs a wee bit bigger, but that is a-ok!)

Laurel October 24, 2009 at 7:03 am

I like to bake with Ghiradelli too. For me it’s a not too expensive, not too cheap (tasting) chocolate.

Mary October 24, 2009 at 7:40 am

Did you ever announce the winner?

Jenny Tan October 26, 2009 at 4:19 pm

I’m not sure if your giveaway is over, but I love Dagoba chocolate – esp the lavender blueberry and the roseberry bars. However, I am sorta allergic to chocolate — can you imagine that?! Yes, If I take more than, say 1/2oz,., I’ll start getting a sore throat! How sad, isn’t it? :P

Chaya October 27, 2009 at 12:17 am

Rosemarie which is a brand, I doubt many have heard of.

Stacy October 27, 2009 at 5:51 pm

For baking I like Ghiradelli and Hershey’s Special Dark. For my afternoon fix – I like Peanut M & M’s :)

Mary October 27, 2009 at 8:02 pm

My favorite chocolate for eating is Dove and Lindt. For baking, I like to use Ghiradelli, Lindt and Scharffen Berger – Bittersweet Dark Chocolate.
