If you have any kind of sweet tooth, then this giveaway is for you! Read on my friends.
When I was offered the chance to receive the Southern Living Classic Southern Desserts Cookbook to give away to one of my readers, I responded with an emphatic “YES” in no time flat! The hardback version of this cookbook found a place in my collection right after it came out a few years ago and I’m thrilled to have the new soft cover version to pass on to one of you. This cookbook has over 200 of Southern Living magazine’s highest-rated dessert recipes and is an absolute must for any dessert loving baker. There are so many amazing recipes in this cookbook that it’s hard to know what to make first! Take a look at the chapter titles along with some of the tantalizing recipe names and you’ll see what I mean.
