Mailbox Monday

This is my first time participating in Mailbox Monday. Every week, Marcia at The Printed Page hosts this meme. I wanted to share this week because I actually got quite a few books in the mail this weekend:


I got a copy of Rock Bottom from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers, and I won two cookbooks from Bethany: Katie Brown Celebrates and Confetti Cakes for Kids. My copy of Dumbing Us Down also arrived, but after I took this picture. Yay, lots of books!

To be honest, the recipes in Confetti Cakes look a little intimidating, but I'm willing to give them a try. Katie Brown Celebrates, though, is full of easy, yummy-sounding recipes. To celebrate, I cooked the Tomato Bread Pudding recipe that Bethany featured on her site. It is delicious!


I actually just had some for breakfast. Yum...

What about you? Have you received any exciting packages in the mail?

Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Those 2 cookbooks are great. Confetti Cakes is intimidating, but it's so much fun to look through.

Wow that looks yummy! Welcome to Mailbox Monday!! I just love this meme. I love Confetti Cakes!! I recently made my son's 2nd birthday cake using the butter cream recipe from the book. It was complicated, but turned out very nicely! There's a pic on my site somewhere . . . .

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi
