Fun Holiday Giveaway

I'm officially in holiday mode, how about you? We got a good head start on our shopping and planning on finishing up this weekend. Christmas cards are all ready to go out next week and I'm trying to finalize my baking list.

I'm definitely a big baker around the holidays. Between planning for my annual cookie exchange and baking several varieties of cookies and candies to deliver to friends and family, I stay pretty busy. These are two things I love to do before Christmas! With that being said, I spend some time beforehand thumbing through cookbooks, old magazines and the Internet for new inspiration.

I have quite the collection of Taste of Home magazines. I've subscribed for as long as I can remember and keep them all nicely organized in magazine holders. I love to take them out from time to time to get new inspiration. Unfortunately I'm running out of room and I've decided I really need to try parting with some of these. That's where my giveaway comes in.

I've got a brand new cookbook I picked up filled with fun cookie ideas for the holidays that I'd like to send to one of my readers. I'm also throwing in a couple of Christmas magazines that I've held onto, one is filled with yummy looking cookie and candy recipes and another has a little bit of everything. You'll find not only ideas for holiday desserts but also recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

Would you like a chance to win? It's pretty easy and I'm giving you 4 chances.
