Friday Fun

It's a giveaway! 
Remember these adorable cupcakes? Well, the author of the Fairies Cookbook, Barbara Beery, is very generously offering a copy of her new book, Pink Princess Cupcakes for a giveaway!

I've never met Barbara in person, but I feel she must be a kindred spirit...
In an age when parents are increasingly harried and kids are overscheduled, you don’t have to get in the car and drive to entertain your kids, nor do you have to give in to fast food. What Barbara learned at a very young age is that the kitchen is a wonderful culinary playground. Since then Barbara has been creating menus and recipes, and passing on her own lessons from home. For instance, you can try anything and you can definitely have fun with your food. When kids enjoy cooking, they get more involved in better eating, and they build a lifelong skill that doesn’t put good, healthy food on the back burner.
You can learn more about Barbara over at her blog, and be sure to check out the Batter Up Kids website for even more pretty things to peruse like these darling tea sets, or these adorable pieces for your table or these baking accessories that would make a perfect gift for a little Rachel Ray/Alton Brown in training.

So, if you want a chance to win what I'm sure will be an enchanting little book before it is even on the bookstore shelves, leave me a comment with your name and email address (or if you don't feel comfortable leaving your email  in a combox, you can just email me your info). I am going to insist that I have a name (any name, it can be a nickname) and an email address for each valid entry. I don't want to have a winner that I can't contact!

I will be accepting entries until next Thursday at 12pm Texas time (CST) and will announce the randomly chosen winner next Friday. Prize can be shipped to US and Canadian addresses only.
