The sweet shoppe had macarons, marshmallow twists, gumballs, and candy in every color of the rainbow. What a sweet way to end the week! Scroll down for…

Amy’s Cookbook Finds: Sweet Confections {+Giveaway!}

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Recipes, Swag
I think you all know by now that I have a slight obsession with cookbooks.  My husband and I laugh sometimes that cookbooks are to me what shoes were to Carrie Bradshaw, and that our home is slowly but surely being invaded by cookbooks.
