It’s been a sweet year for me and BAKING, a year in which I’ve gotten to meet so many of you on the road and in the blogoshpere – thank you all for being so kind, generous and supportive, and for being such creative and energetic bakers.

To celebrate this birthday, Houghton Mifflin, my publisher, and I are giving away 10 autographed copies of BAKING.

To win a copy, just leave a comment with your name and the name of the person to whom you’d like me to sign the book and I’ll pick the 10 winners at random.

The deadline for entries is October 10, so you’ll have about two weeks to put your names in the virtual hat (and I’ll have time to sign the books before I leave for France).

Happy birthday, BAKING and MANY, MANY THANKS to all of you who have been such good friends to me and the book.
