I lied.

1. I told you I would post the winner of The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook on this chocolate sheet cake post.

And I didn’t. I’m announcing it here.

2. I told you one person would win it.

And that’s just not true either.

You see… you guys blew me away today with all your comments. I can’t believe how many of you have made Ree’s recipes. Seriously… UH-MAZING! (And, thanks for all the suggestions by the way!) It makes me smile inside to read how many people enjoy her site as much as I do.

So, today, because reading all your comments put me in such a good mood.

And also, because I realized my blog had it’s 2nd anniversary over the weekend. Yeah … two whole years. Well, that made me pretty happy, too.

So I ran to the bookstore to score some more cookbooks for you. You guys have made this blog so much fun. It’s been an adventure every day. I’m not going to get all mushy or anything, but I just want to thank you all for being so great and stopping by to visit. There. I’m stopping right there before I make myself cry.

Anyway, there’s not gonna be one winner. There’s gonna be four. (That’s all they had left.)


Here are the lucky numbers.


And the winners are……………

I couldn’t wait to see if I won, so I was checking the bookstores again….still no books! They swear they had some…I guess they are gone faster than I can get there!

I have looked around your website after my Momma did your website. I LOVE to bake and find this website perfect! Thank you for sharing ALL of these recipes!

I see a lot of cakes coming to my family’s stomachs in the future! Hopefully, nobody will blame me for fattening them up. *sigh* Thanks, again!

I am hosting a dessert competition and our categories are best chocolate, best non chocolate, best presentation and most creative. Do you have an idea for how the judges can judge the sweets? I was thinking a lichert scale on each of the categories and then we add up the scores for the winner?

Congrats to the winners and you are just wonderful Bakerella to have more then one winner! You and your cake pops are the greatest. “In our parts of the country” this same sheet cake has always been a staple at the church potlucks. There was always more than one brought and not one, not one of those pans goes home with nary a crumb left on it. Coconut can also be used in addition to or in place of the pecans. Yum-yum!

Congrats to the winners and to Bakerella! I need to start entering these contests. I am just so busy baking I am not on the computer as much but I will make it a point from now on to take a peak every week. This is a great, inspirational site full of creative, unique ideas. Love it!!

Just wanted to tell you I picked up the book last night (while at the CakeWrecks booksigning at B&N.) I only know about her through your blog and have really enjoyed the book so far – so many tasty things to try… I’ll make sure I add her blog to my reader! Thanks again for introducing me to Pioneer Woman.
