This has been a huge week of Celebration for a very special blogger and, I
feel fortunate to say, also a very special friend, Bridget Edwards. You see
not only did Bridget celebrate her birthday this week, she and the other
million or so people she's inspired through her blog also celebrated this!
I knew this day would eventually come for Bridget the moment
I discovered her blog and saw her sugar cookie creations...

I also knew I wanted to create cookies just like Bridget does
so I contacted her with a few hundred questions... Bridge was
amazingly patient and kind and, she answered every single one!
Pretty soon I was creating decorated sugar cookies of my own to rave
reviews from everyone that saw and tasted them... Especially my mom!
I wanted to do something to show my gratitude to Bridget for
all of her help and inspiration... Something to make up for all
the time she spent answering my questions. So I sent Bridget
a couple of cookie baking/decorating books I found on-line...
When I think about sending those books to Bridget now, I still get
a little embarrassed because today I know what I did was like...
Sending a paint-by-numbers set to Michelangelo!
Fortunately, Bridget didn't hold my faux pas against me! And, when her big moment
arrived, Bridget recommended her publisher send me an advance copy of her book!
I'm thrilled to have it and have already read it, cover to cover!
And, once again I put Bridget's techniques to work on
these crown cookies I created this weekend for a friend
whose sweet daughter is pledging to ZTA this week!
But the release of Bridget's new book isn't just good news
for me... It's also good news for you because Bridget's publisher
included an extra copy for me to give away to one of my readers!
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment about your
favorite cookie baking memory. For extra entries, feel free to
