We have a winner!

Tsh is the founder of this blog and just finished traveling around the world with her husband and 3 kids. Her latest book is Notes From a Blue Bike, and believes a passport is one of the world's greatest textbooks.

tmmo_book_2006_lg.jpgThe winner of The Total Money Makeover is Karen at Simply A Musing Blog! Congrats, Karen. I hope it blesses your family and serves as an encouragement to you. (She, incidentally, also loves triple suicide chocolate cake.)

For the other 156 of you, I still highly encourage you to get it. It has been the best financial resource for our family. I’ve been writing a series called Personal Finance 101 based on Dave Ramsey and The Total Money Makeover, and it highlights all seven of his Baby Steps.

Just for fun, here are some of the more creative-sounding desserts mentioned throughout the contest:

  • the green dessert Marly
  • better than sex – Valerie (my friend Clarisa makes this, too)
  • claim jumpers chocolate cakeChanelireli
  • extreme moose tracks ice cream Tamara
  • chocolate chai pie Wendy (I’m drooling just thinking about it! I need this recipe, Wendy…)
  • dies and went to heaven chocolate cake – Sue
  • better than robert redford cake Adria Sha
  • snicker salad – Terra Heck (apples, Snickers, cream cheese, and cool whip? Who knew?)
  • dump cake – Christi239 (yellow cake mix, butter, pineapple, and cherry pie filling – quite the concoction!)

Well, now that I need a sugar fix, I’ll leave you for the weekend. Have a great one, and I’ll be back on Monday!
