Desserts in Jars Giveaway

Think about it. It's simple logic:

  1. Desserts are delicious.
  2. We eat first with our eyes.
  3. Everything is cuter in jars, therefore...
  4. Desserts in jars are more delicious.

Shaina Olmanson's book Desserts in Jars capitalizes on exactly that logic, serving forth dozens of sweet recipes in several categories both baked and frozen, fruity and custardy, caky and crumbly. Pies, cupcakes, puddings, crèmes brûlées, crisps, crumbles, parfaits, cheesecakes ... the list goes on and on, all made right inside mason jars I know you already have plenty of. There's even a section with recipes for baking mixes to prepare as giftable jars, wrapped as you will with ribbons or butcher's twine or whatever you like to add a little flair. 

I met Shaina at a recent conference here in San Francisco, and I guiltily admitted I'd had a couple copies of the book hanging out in my office, begging to be given away. "Do it for Mother's Day!" She said. And so that's exactly what I'm doing. 

To enter to win a copy, scroll down and leave a comment about desserts with your mother. Maybe it's your favorite cake that she made for your birthday every year, or something you turned her on to that she can't get enough of now. Make it sweet!
