    Congrats to comment #760 Vanessa

    I am in the process of writing a book based on my baking blog, iambaker. It is set to be out in the fall of 2012. (We’ll see if I can meet my deadlines to make that happen!)

    I truly believe that the only reason I am in this position is because of the amazingly rewarding relationships that have developed through this blog.

    I just adore you all!  And, I am hoping to include you in as much of the process as I can.

    So, here on i am author is where you will get a behind the scenes preview on all things book related.

    But I know this process can be slow.  Believe me, this very first thing I want to do when I make a cake is to share it with you!  Its such a bummer keeping some things a surprise.

    So, as a thanks to you for your patience, support, and encouragement…

    I am giving away a Kindle 3G!

    My favorite cookbook is probably Good Housekeeping cookbook my mom bought for all of her kids at various thrift stores.

  • Katie says:

    And I like you on Facebook!

  • Jamee says:

    My favorite cookbook is: The I Love to Cook Book, because I LOVE Lauren Groveman, the author. She is a GREAT inspiration to me. 🙂

  • Deborah says:

    I don’t know if I could choose just one favorite cookbook! I do love all of Martha Stewart’s – especially her cookie book, cupcake book and pie book. I have yet to have a recipe fail from one of those!

    Hi Amanda.
    I have 3. Really. If you should ask my husband this question, he would tell you she has 3 and he would be able to name them. Seriously. They are very helpful and informative. I don’t favor one over the other, they all 3 are important to me and a valuable resource. I like them because they have excellent recipes AND they provide useful information. Almost like a teaching book, providing you with why you should use this, why that ingredient is important, tips, etc. I love it when I not only am giving an excellent recipe, but with tips and reasons why things are done a certain way and why certain ingredients are used and what they do! That is why these 3 books are so valuable to me.

    There are:
    The Cake Bible
    Rose’s Heavenly Cakes
    Baking Illustrated – The Practicle Kitchen Companion for the Home Baker

    Stumbled across your page and fell in love.
    My favorite cookbook was put out by a church group for a fundraiser, a gift from a friend in aerobics class. After all, gotta work off some of those delicious calories.

    Like you on facebook also 🙂

  • Tieshia says:

    My favorite cookbook is one I thumbed through at a Thrift store that I’ve never seen again. It was about cooking international dishes.

  • Janelle says:

    My favorite cookbook is a red binder filled with copied pages straight out of my Grandmothers recipe box. When she passed away 3 years ago, my aunts gathered up all of her recipes they could find and copied them into binder books for all of her grandchildren. In the back of the book they also copied the pages from one of those “grandma books”, where there are a bunch of questions for grandma to answer. I absolutely LOVE looking at this book and seeing her own handwriting. She was known for her baking, especially her pies. Oh what I would do for a slice of her pecan pie or are toffee cookies right now.

  • Vanessa Back says:

    I have a wonderful friend that has been a baker for many years for Winn Dixie before she retired. I absolutely loved everything she baked! I love you on Facebook!
