(CLOSED) New Years Giveaway....Keep On Baking!

Happy New Year!

Can you believe it is 2013 already?  Must husband and I were talking about what we thought it would be like when we were kids.  He was sure we would be flying around with jet packs by now!  I never really thought about it but I thought it would be like the Jetsons kind of.  We couldn't have been more wrong eh?  Even though we are jet pack less, and hover car less, I am pretty grateful for what we have!

This year has been just incredible for FoodThoughtsOfaChefWannabe.  10,000 fans in the last 12 months on Facebook and 274 fans here.  (lets grow this number, can we?).  I appeared in Penzey's Spices with 2 original recipes and a story about being a mom, and my parents.  I was recently published on Fox News Online Magazine as well.  Even though I haven't mentioned yet, I also have gone to a self hosted domain.  You can find me now at www.foodthoughtsofachefannabe.com.  I am a "dot com"!!!  These little things in life excite me in ways even I don't understand.  One thing I do understand is how important each of you have made this journey.  Your support, your friendship, your input, your jokes, laughter, faith and humanity are all gifts you share with me.  I am eternally grateful. 

As most of you know I always say I am a terrible baker.  I have spent the last year working hard to bake better.  I have to have a few things to get in the baking mood, good LOUD music, chocolate, and fun kitchen tools! You may or may not remember how excited I was to get my porcelain measuring spoons and then I got the Curtis Stone glass measuring cups.  Have you SEEN Curtis Stone?  I will be anything that hottie wants to sell me, INCLUDING measuring cups.  I had to justify 30.00 measuring cups, so I promised my hubs I would learn to bake better.  It is working so far...thank you Curtis, my lovey, I LOVE BAKING!

Hopefully some new fun kitchen tools AND a little Curtis in your life will help YOU love to bake even more than maybe you already do!!


Anyway the point is, I decided to find some glass measuring stuff for you all.  I found you these great ones!  You will get the spoons and measuring cups/bowls.  I picked up 2 sets, so there will be 2 winners! 

Now, get entered..........hurry!

  11. I am possibly the WORST pie crust maker in the universe! We have Sunday family dinner where my sister and I switch off taking turns to cook for 8 of us and I've tried twice to make homemade pie crust resulting in EPIC FAIL! LOL!

    For New Years Eve, I resorted to paying a local home baker to make me a couple of pies for the annual get together with the folks.

    Thanks for the chance to win something that certainly couldn't HURT a girl who keeps on tryin'! :D

  30. I am more of a savory cook because I have a terrible tendency of storing calories =] but I do love to bake, almost as much as I love to eat. Since I don't have a mother, sister or daughter to bake with, I depend on interesting, creative folks like you for encouragement and support. BTW, Perri Pender sent me =]
