Then just leave a comment saying so.  If several people would like this book, I’ll put your names in a mixing bowl, give them a good stir, and draw one.

    It’s crazy to want more sweets after the Christmas buzz, but I’d love the book. Best wishes for good arm healing in 2011!

    My grandma made fantastic cucciddati, sesame cookies, rainbow cookies, etc but her recipes were lost long ago. I would love to have this cookbook so I could at least try to re-create them!
