Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for Irresistible Mini Treats
By Angie Dudley
Angie Dudley (AKA Bakerella) was just in Toronto promoting at Teatro Verde and Williams-Sonoma. The book is fun & yummy and I can't wait to try my hand at making some of the delicious treats over the holidays!
Here is her clip from Canada AM when she was on explaining how to make her magical treats.
Very Merry Cookie Party: How to Plan and Host a Christmas Cookie Exchange
By Barbara Grunes and Virginia Van Vynct
This one has every and any type of cookie for a cookie exchange. I'm looking forward to baking some of these up as well! Oh where will I find the time?!?
The Ultimate Metallica
By Ross Halfin
I know, this is a totally different pick from the above two but I'm a closet lover of metal. I saw them when they toured to Vancouver for their Black album waaay back in the day. Oh the memories!! Would have loved to have seen them for their Kill'Em All or their Ride the Lightning tours, but I would have been a little less than 10 and I wouldn't think my mom would have sent me. So instead I was able to see Michael Jackson's Spider tour instead.
