Winners of the Tyler Florence Book Giveaway

Tyler Florence's new books Stirring the Pot and Dinner at My Place are now available in stores.

I got 210 emails with the correct answer for my Tyler Florence Cookbook Giveaway! (I did accept them until 12:01am pacific time, since I didn't specify a time zone. Woops!) What is the name of Tyler's new daughter?

The correct answer is: Dorothy

And shame on you people for sending me entries with "Hayden." That's his son's name! If you had read my post breaking the news of Dorothy's birth, you'd have known! ;-) Oh well, better luck next time.

To make the process random, I had Sunny Anderson pick the winners by giving me five numbers between 1 and 210.

So, in the order you emailed me, here are Sunny's picks: 75, 208, 63, 2, and 127.

Congrats to Natalie in Illinois, Rick in New York, Nancy in New Hampshire, Harry in California, and Daniel in Colorado! You were the winners of the giveaway!

Jacob, can you please ask him to come to Denver? People in Denver cook, you just have to follow the direction for "Altitudes above 4,000 feet".

My biscuits are still good!
