    Leila Ludy on 5 November 29th, 2009 4:53 pm

    Hi! Love your site. It’s been really helpful in keeping up with my west coast “family” – we aren’t truly related but they invite us for major holidays, and they all cook and bake like pros!

    I’ve been unemployed for a year after working for several years on home improvement shows. The industry took a big hit with the recession, but now, I’m about to have my first baby. Raising him will be my new job for the time being. 3 weeks to go!

    I am sensitive to wheat and corn so seeing cupcakes on the cover of a gluten-free cookbook is very exciting…. πŸ™‚

    p.s. I live in Sherman Oaks, CA.

    krystynna on 7 November 29th, 2009 5:00 pm

    Hi! I am an athletic and personal trainer. I am also in school full time. Baking is my muse….haha, I mean, really, what inspires me is finding a recipe and making it until its “perfection”. In the process, I relieve a LOT of stress, and garner the love and adoration of clients, friends, and family, who get to be the test tasters!

    As healthy and tasty as I try to make my recipes, I am clueless about vegan and gluten free….I have a sis with celiac disease, and my best friend is vegan, so this cookbook would be a great starting point! Maybe even in time for goodies for christmas?

    I loved the Reece’s Pieces Cookies!!!!

    LYNNE on 8 November 29th, 2009 5:01 pm

    I live in a northern suburb of Chicago. I’m a retired school librarian, and am still teaching Sunday School. It’s been over 30 years, and I LOVE it. My signature recipe is Mazel Toffee cookies.

    Hellooooo ….
    I live in Melbourne, Australia and I am currently a student studying fine arts and education. I work part-time for a tutoring organisation doing boring administration work … but like to light up the office with baked goods!
    I would love to tackle the recipes from this book cause a few of my colleagues are either vegetarian or celiac or some other kind of intolerant!! And they are my taste testers — or rather who I give my baked goods to so I don’t eat them all!
    Keep up the blogging! I have been a long time reader, first time commenter.
