Winner of The Go-Getter Girl’s Guide…and a Macaroon Teaser

After a weekend full of making cookies (14 different kind!) with my mom, I’m ready for a long winter’s nap. And yet today is the shortest day of the year. Doesn’t that just figure?

Anyway, do come back Wednesday for a recipe for one of my mom’s newest and most delicious cookie recipes ever–the Chewy Coconut Macaroon. She only started making these last year, and I wasn’t here for that, so this is my first experience with these bad boys. Whoa. LOVE.

But now, what you’ve all been waiting for. I’ve randomly chosen the winner of The Go-Getter Girl’s Guide by Debra Shigley, and the lucky commenter is:

Catherine of Passage to Italy

Congratulations Catherine! I’ll be in touch.

To the rest of you, get out there and get your copy for your favorite go-getter girl!

And come back Wednesday for those macaroons!

    The cookies sound better than winning a book!

    OK well both are fab, I will say 😉

    Thank you so much to both Michelle and Debra! Hope you both have a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! It was also my birthday on the 20th and I got snow for my birthday. I’m sure everyone was hearing about the snow we were getting here on the East Coast. Hopefully anyone of you that live in the area all got home safely and were able to enjoy the storm inside with family under a nice warm blanket with tea or a cup of hot chocolate!

    Thanks Catherine! Hope you enjoy the book 🙂

    Thank you again!
