1 Year Already?'s the day.  It's the 1 year anniversary of the blog! Or the "blogiversary" as I like to refer to it.

Time really flies when you're having fun...I can hardly believe it's been 365 days!  There's been a lot of ups and downs, a few changes, both big and small, and lots and lots of sugar!  Hopefully, I'll be able to continue sharing my baking and cooking adventures with you well into the future.

If you've been following my posts before now, I hope you've been enjoying yourself and a big THANK YOU for your support.  And if you're new here, feel free to take a look around...maybe you'll be tempted to check back in with us or even read the ramblings on a regular basis!

And, in honor of the blog making it to the 1 year mark, I'm having a giveaway!

Want to see what 1 lucky winner will receive?  Here it is:


What's included:
  • 1 large "Mix-n-Measure" glass (1.5 cup capacity)
  • 1 small "Mix-n-Measure Mini Measure" glass (2 TBSP capacity)
  • 1 copy of Good Housekeeping's "Brownies:  Favorite Recipes for Blondies, Bars & Brownies" 
  • 1 copy of Good Housekeeping's "Cookies:  Favorite Recipes for Bar, Drop, Rolled, & Shaped Cookies"
So, why this stuff?  

Well, I absolutely love, love the "Mix-n-Measure" glasses.  They have several different forms of measurement (i.e. ounces, cups, grams, millimeters, teaspoons, etc) printed on the sides, making them perfect for both dry and liquid measuring.  And, as for the cookbooks, I ran across them the other day while shopping, and they just pulled me in.  (Yes, I'm a sucker for cookbooks and food photography!)  Both books have an abundance of recipes and tips, the photography is beautiful, and they are from Good Housekeeping, which means the recipes are tested and re-tested for the perfect result!  

How do you enter?*

Just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite thing is to bake.  It could be bread, cake, cookies, or maybe something a little less common.  I look forward to seeing everyone's answers! (And, make sure you leave some type of moniker (i.e. nickname) so that I can identify you if you're the lucky winner!)

I'll announce the winner on December 16, 2011.  You'll have to check back on that day to find out if you're the lucky recipient, and if so, to find out how to claim your prize.

Good luck!
