I would pick "The America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book". I already own and LOVE Artisan Bread in 5-minutes a day - I use it a lot. I also own "vegan cupcakes take over the world" - okay cookbook but I'm not vegan. "Hello Cupcakes" seems gimicky and I would probably not use it often. "The Bread Bakers Apprentice" seems overly complicated for home baking. The rest I'm not interested in. The book I chose seems useful.

The America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book. They give precise and to the point ingredient information and instructions. I saw a companion book recently, and thought the format was great.

I'm torn between The America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book and Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Either one seems like a wonderful book to get. ATK because of the variety and I hear good things about it. But there's a part of me that really wants bread ALL the time. So difficult to choose. Ideally, if I won, I'd like it to be a surprise (though that wouldn't be part of the rules).

While the artisian bread, and america's test kitchen both are probably fantastic books, I'd have to go with the Sweet Freedom book, as I honestly don't have anything in that category of baked goods that don't use sugar, wheat or dairy. i honestly don't bake much as I try to avoid those ingredients, so it would likely increase my baking significantly.

I want to win Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, mainly b/c I want to learn how to make my own bread, and control what goes into my family's bodies. We've been trying to become more health conscious over the years, and god knows what ppl put in bread these days. Plus we dun have a lot of money, so it would save grocery costs =)

I would choose the Cooky Book. I remember that growing up and loved the cookies, and would love for my kids to have the same memories when they're older Smile

The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread. I love baking bread, especially basic sandwich breads for my family and friends. I would like to expand my offerings to family and friends. I love to learn why something works or doesn't, and the reviews of this book indicate that it will teach me the science behind the baking r/th simply giving a bunch of recipes.

I would love to win "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking". One of my favorite hobbies is baking homemade breads, so I love coming across new ways to make them.

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day sounds interesting.

Bread making is one of those things that seems interesting but I've never taken the time to learn. It would be great to see some new ways to do it.

I've been drooling over Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day for quite some time now. I need that book.

I'm torn between ATK and Hello, Cupcake. I love the ATK show but Hello, Cupcake looks too quirky to not try out! I'd love to win a copy of Hello, Cupcake!

I've been wanting to get my hands on a copy of Sweet Freedom for a while. It sounds like it could be pretty good.

It's a difficult choice given such a great collection of books! I've finally settled on the America's Test Kitchen book - seems a great baking resource.
