Let's get this week off and rolling on the right foot, shall we?

Okay, here's my question........ what would you do if you won the lottery?

Seriously, I'm talking about a lottery of regular proportion. Not the super huper duper powerball, just the measly little old three million dollar lottery?

I know what I'd do. I am so addicted to cookbooks......I buy me some serious cookbooks. And some fantastic new pots and pans to go with them. Now, isn't that the silliest old thing you ever heard? I can't help it. I am so totally addicted to cookbooks. I love to go on the internet and print out recipes that I will probably never get around to trying out. I'm not a particularly good cook, there is just something about those pictures and measurements that gets to me. (It's a sickness I know). I'd go see Paula Deen and Guy Fieri and visit some of the restaurants that they both love. Oh, yes I would. Maybe hire a tutor to take with me so my kiddies could see some of this great country of ours. But alas, that ain't gonna happen. But a girl can dream.

So, today, I am hosting a giveaway of one cookbook. It is called "Cakes Galore" by Valerie Barrett. I am hoping that there is someone out there who is just as addicted to cook books as I am.

This giveaway will end on April 11, 2010 at 10 pm. I will announce the randomly selected winner on Monday, April 12, 2010.

The only thing you have to do to win is leave a comment. And make sure that you leave your email address. Cause if I can't get hold of you, I will have to award the prize to the next randomly drawn name. You don't have to follow or make me god parent to your children, just leave me a comment on whether or not you have this sickness too. Good luck to all and have a blessed week.

I'm a cookbook-aholic too. This is one sweet giveaway! Just today I made a checkerboard cake like the one shown on the front of this cookbook except it was black & white for a racing them.

If I won the lottery I would pay off all debt and buy a house.

Well, if they're just going to give me a wimpy little 3 million, (lol) I would use about $500,000 to build a house and save the rest for investing and, my favorite thing, travelling :)
I used to think people who still bought cookbooks were a little behind the times. After all, you can find all the recipes you'll ever need online for free. Then my mom's friend gave me 2 cookbooks as a wedding gift. I was all set to return them (I'm a shameless gift returner!) but after browsing through each book, I was hooked. There's just something about being able to make notes on a recipe that appeals to me.
