Blogiversary Giveaway Part 1 WINNER!

Sorry for the delay on announcing the winner for last week’s giveaway. We were out of town last weekend spending time with friends on the lake. Then it’s been a crazy week.

Enough of the excuses, let’s get on to the giveaway! I really enjoyed reading what everyone would want off the list I provided. The nerd in me wanted to make a pie chart of what everyone said. Instead I’ll just list the percentages here. Feel free to generate your own pie chart if you’d like!

31.4% – Baking Illustrated from Cooks Illustrated – I won this cookbook from another blog giveaway. I haven’t had much time to dig into it, but the Lemon Bars I made from it were amazing.
19.1% – Baking from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan – I got this cookbook at a great price at TJMaxx one day. Everything I’ve made from it has been amazing. My favorite is this Depths of Fall Pie.
18.0% – Cake Pops by Bakerella (pre-order) – I obviously don’t have this one. It’s on my wishlist.
12.4% – Good Eats: The Early Years by Alton Brown – You guys all know I have an autographed copy of this book. I love reading through all the tidbits about the various episodes.The best thing we’ve made from this one is the Butterflied, Broiled Chicken.
9.3% – Martha Stewart’s Cookies – This one has been on my wishlist for quite some time now.
5.7% – Good Eats 2: The Middle Years by Alton Brown (pre-order) – Another one on my wishlist.

4.1% – Donuts from William Sonoma – I love donuts and while it might be dangerous for me to get this cookbook, I really want it.

I also got some great ideas from the Facebook comments of other cookbook I’m going to have to take a look at…

And now on to the winner. Between the comments on here and on Facebook, I had 256 entries for this giveaway. I used Random.org to generate a random number…

Entry number 216 is Lisa from Facebook (I hid her last name and profile pic for privacy). I will be sending Lisa a message to find out which cookbook she’d like from my list. I’ll let everyone know what she chooses. UPDATE: Lisa chose the most popular cookbook from the list: Baking Illustrated (which I already own and it’s great!)

Thanks everyone for entering the giveaway! Be sure to enter this week’s giveaway by midnight tomorrow.
