Update on The Fearless Baker Cookbook Giveaway – One Copy will be Signed!

After emailing with Emily Luchetti, she has graciously agreed to donate one of the two books for my giveaway and it will be a signed copy!

In addition, Ms. Luchetti is conducting a survey related to her new cookbook and if you fill it out, she is entering the participants in her own drawing for a signed cookbook. And to give you some extra incentive, if you fill it out and leave a note in my comments, I’ll enter you one more time in the random drawing as well. So click on over and take a minute to fill it out!

I will extend my giveaway for an extra 24 hours until midnight on June 21 so enter now if you haven’t already. As a reminder, here are the different ways you can enter:

1. Leave a comment with a story about your favorite baking success or your worst failure. I will pick my favorite story and award the signed copy to that person.

AND

2. One more winner will be picked randomly and you can enter the following ways:

  • Tweet this messsage: I just entered to win a copy of @EmilyLuchetti ‘s cookbook The Fearless Baker @omgyummyblog ‘s giveaway: http://bit.ly/krFPYF

And for just a little more motivation, look at these simple but elegant and mouth-watering cookies I prepared this weekend using her orange shortbread recipe from The Fearless Baker. And speaking of fearless, I was brave enough to decide on my own to dip them in chocolate and it worked out great!

    My mother is an exceptional baker and I don’t know many who can measure up. For years I did not even try my hand at baking, knowing that i could not come even close to her. As a perfectionist, I had to be the best at everything, from the very beginning, or I would not even attempt it. You cannot fake it with baking: you either bake, or you don’t.
    It was my daughter’s first birthday, and mother was nowhere in the vicinity (the ocean separating the continents makes it hard to come over and help, or hover:) I picked one of her cakes that I remember as easy, simple, and not too time-consuming. It had two thin layers of rich vanilla sponge cake, with a layer of apricot jam and another of creme anglaise in the the middle, with a fluffy meringue on top. Of course I could do it!
    But nowhere in her recipe were the instructions for the size of the pan, temperature, and the time of baking. Her recipes were more reminders, than actual instructions for novices like me. But i plunged forward, made the cake batter, poured it into a floured and buttered pan (I remembered that much from watching her bake day after day), and plopped it in the oven, proud of my accomplishments, already looking forward to the accolades.
    The batter was done, but as thin as when I put it in the oven. There was no way for me to slice it into two layers, as it was dense and hard. The surface of it developed a crust, and no amount of jam could soften it. My cake became a crostata or a tart. And I have never heard of either crostata or a tart.
    My guests were oblivious, and went ga-ga over a dessert made from scratch.
    I knew that I failed, but I managed to mask my failure as a success.
    I still falter when faced with Mother’s recipes, but I have learned my lesson: I Skype with her about every single detail before I crack a single egg:)
