Bakerella’s “Cake Pops” Book and Cookbook Giveaway

The first food blog I followed was Angie Dudley’s blog “Bakerella”. To me, it was (and still is) one the most incredible food blogs, and I patiently awaited each fabulous post clicking on her site day after day hoping for her to post again. I was contemplating starting my own blog at the time, and I emailed her and asked a number of questions. She was beyond sweet, helpful and resourceful, and I don’t know if I can ever thank her enough for all of her advice and encouragement. Recently, her incredible first book, “Cake Pops”, was released by Chronicle Books, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. This book is filled with incredible ideas, photos and recipes on how to turn a cake ball and cake pops into incredible shapes and designs. This book offers step-by-step instruction on how to create these. A few weeks ago, I was so fortunate to meet Angie in person at a conference, and she was so humble, gracious, and nice. I am so excited about her success, and I couldn’t wait to feature her new book on my site. This book is perfect for anyone that loves creativity and food, and I highly recommend it (my kids took it to school the other day, and all of the parents were calling me how to get a copy).

Special Snack Treat: Chunky Nut and Dried Fruit Granola

13888

One of my favorite things to snack on is granola. In town, Big Sky Granola is one of my favorites because it’s chunky like this Chunky Nut and Dried Fruit Granola recipe. I made this for a special treat for my friend who just had surgery, and she took one bite and said, “This granola rocks!” It is as good as it looks and full of wonderful ingredients.
