    I would keep the Vegan Pie book for sure. The others look great too thought!

    Thanks for the opportunity :)

  2. says

    I’d keep the vegan pie book because I love Hannah Kaminsky’s blog…and I can think of friends to gift the other books to :)

  3. lisa m says

    Gluten-Free & Vegan Holidays Cookbook. I’m sure the recipes are so good, you don’t even know it’s good for you. That’s what I need in a house with “How can that taste good?” =)

  4. jacquie says

    the holiday cookbook because having recently fled a long term domestic relationship that turned abusive I need to start some new traditions and this might be a good way to start.

  5. Cheryl W. says

    Honestly they all look so wonderful, but since I am to choose it would be the photography book. Cooking, I can do. Not so much at taking good photos thought. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  6. Kiersten says

    Wow those all sound great! I think I would keep the Winter Cocktails book, but I’m also a big fan of WS recipes and the photography book sounds like it might have some great tips. I’d probably page through them all :)

  7. Karen D says

    I’d keep Gluten-Free and Vegan Holidays, because it fits best with how I choose to eat. Eliminating gluten since my fraternal twin was diagnosed celiac, and I’ve been vegetarian over 35 years, the last 10 edging to vegan.

  8. Brittany Triola says

    I would be most likely to keep the Winter Cocktails book. It just sounds like a great addition to my house bar.

  9. Shannon H says

    Winter Cocktails! Perfect to check out being Minnesota/Wisconsin have hit rock bottom for cold weather already this season. Need to try some new drinks!

  10. Deb E says

    I would like the Gluten-Free and Vegan Holidays book the most. The vegan pie book looks awesome too. I need recipes to impress at the holidays.

  11. Lynn says

    The gift for me would be the Holiday book as I love cooking and baking for friends and family during the holidays. But all of the books look interesting.

  12. says

    The photography book with Winter Cocktails as a very close 2nd. Ideally, I’d be reading the photography book with a winter cocktail in hand. :-)

  13. Heather says

    I’d read them all but would definitely keep the photography book. Who wouldn’t want to “take the best pictures of your life??” :)

  14. Denise M says

    Gluten free and vegan holidays – i am gluten free and am looking for ways to change up my menus

  15. Tiana says

    My gift would be having a holiday party for everyone using recipes in these books. I would get some photography advice too and take awesome pics of my party!!!😃🎄🎅🎉
