Sorry to the TWD bakers, especially Donna from Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases, as I didn't do her pick for Butterscotch Pudding this week! Everything just seems a bit crazy (as I'm sure for everyone) with the holidays, um--HERE!!! Donna has a great blog with some darn good looking food, go see it and her pudding as well as what the other bakers have done with the pudding. I'm sure they will all be yummy! (Kevin hates butterscotch, so that was also a reason I just didn't try to get it done.) I'll for sure be making next week's pick for Tall and Creamy Cheesecake!
Aside from that, I'm finally getting to my first GIVEAWAY! I totally meant to do something when I got to 100 posts on my blog and missed it by a long shot, so here's to post number 146! Really, I've just been wanting to have a giveaway because I sure think it's fun when other bloggers do it and I wanted to show my thanks for all ya'll visiting my blog. I decided to have a few things that I think are essentials in my kitchen that I couldn't live without, and though I LOVE my Kitchen Aid mixer, you'll have to go to Pioneer Woman for that! ; )
So one lucky winner will be chosen to receive these two things----first of all, a digital kitchen scale. I LOVE it. I use it for just about everything, from portion control to quick measurements of ingredients when I'm baking. There are many available out there, but here's one like the one I use, ready and waiting to be shipped to it's new owner.
AND, because one of my nicer plastic cutting boards just broke and I went to buy some new ones, I grabbed an extra set of these flexible cutting mats to go with the scale.
I almost feel like you can't have too many cutting boards, ya know. So there you have it. Leave me a comment telling me your middle name and one lucky winner will be selected to win the scale and mats. Why the middle name? I don't know, just because. I'll tell you mine, if you tell me yours! ; ) I'll go first, you ready for this? My middle name is----Katrina. Huh? Okay, I go by my middle name. Always have. My parents named me Mary Katrina and always intended to call me Katrina, they just thought Mary Katrina sounded better than Katrina Mary and well, it does. Good choice, Mom and Dad! (Mary is a name of three of my grandmothers.)
Leave me a quick comment and make sure I have a way to contact you and I'll pick a winner this Saturday, December 27! Deadline is midnight, Friday, December 26 CST.
Hope you all have great holidays!
Oh, and speaking of Moms----HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOMMY! Hope you have a great day! Take care. I love you!
