Mostly because giveaways are fun.
This sucker's called the O Happy Day Giveaway.
I'm giving away on package with three things I love, three things that are very, very me. So I know I'm going out on a limb a little bit, and may only get ten entries, but I want to share these things with the wonderful, wonderful people who read my blog. The winner will receive a package during the Octave of Easter containing:
One batch of my chocolate chip cookies.
About three years ago I spent months trying recipes, looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Chewy on the inside, a little crisp on the outside. Soft, thick, absolutely delicious. Nothing got it right. Then my friend Katie gave me a copy of America's Test Kitchen's chocolate chip cookie recipe and the search was done. They explained the science of why the recipe works, which was really interesting, and when we tasted them we realized we would never use another chocolate chip recipe again.
(Readers with allergies, please read the Terms and Conditions on the Rafflecopter widget below.)
One cd (not really a cassette like what's pictured here, but it looks so cool and nostalgic) filled with a great mix of music. Some of it may be familiar from my 7QT songs but some of it may be new. All of it will be fun.
One super cute, hand made scarf crocheted by my friend Katie.
I do this thing in the spring and autumn where, even though I should be wearing a jacket I don't. Instead I put on a cardigan and a scarf and consider myself sufficiently bundled. Since I'm usually having pregnancy or post partum hot flashes this works very well for me. Hopefully you'll love this scarf as much as I do and it'll help keep you warm through the blustery months of Spring. And, seriously, how great are those buttons? Love it!
So a one package in the mail + one batch of chocolate chip cookies + one cd of music + one beautiful scarf = O Happy Day!
So enter away! The give away will close on March 16th.
I think I kind of always screw up the 'rules of giveaways', the thing is, I am pregnant, and the cookies looked really good. and I love mixed cds, so hopefully, leaving a comment works? Who knows?ReplyDelete
I would LOVE to receive any one of those awesome things!ReplyDelete
Hey Bonnie! You're one of my new favorite bloggers! Your cookies look awesome and my husband (scientist) and son (cute daddy's boy) love America's Test Kitchen! If we don't win we'll have to search for the recipe and make our own batch for the Octave! Lenten Blessings to you as you journey forward!ReplyDelete
OK, ATK is my source for all recipes, and these are the only choc. chip cookies we'll ever make. They are so so so so good. As for music, I don't know if you blogged about it, but whenever I hear Little Talks I think of you (is that weird?)ReplyDelete
Also, giveaways like this make me wish I was on Twitter!!!!
Not weird at all! I do that too. :)Delete
This is my first visit! Thanks for the giveaway:)ReplyDelete
I don't normally enter giveaways, but those cookies do look really good. so not kidding. LOLReplyDelete
Sounds great! Count me in!ReplyDelete
shared on FB as well!ReplyDelete
I pretty much love all the music you post-but I think my favorite was that JJ Heller song from a few weeks ago.ReplyDelete
I want those cookies.
almost all of the music you post is new to me. i love your taste in music!ReplyDelete
This is such a thoughtful giveaway!ReplyDelete
Great giveaway! I'm holding out for that mixed cd! As for the music you post, I have always loved when you post something by the Lumineers. Love, love, love them.ReplyDelete
I love the One Direction/Downton link I saw here first.ReplyDelete
I will enter because I want those cookies. And I know that this is all random so my pity party won't help my case, but my tiny 40 year old cabinet oven just kicked the bucket. Parts for it would be impossible to find and/or prohibitively expensive and we aren't going to replace it with another tiny oven because that would be dumb (we have 3 kids going on a dozen already so we're thinking we want something bigger then a large toaster oven). We need to rearrange things and get new cabinets to make room. Long story shorter, we will get a new oven when we can afford a new kitchen remodel. And I would love some cookies for Easter. Please pick me. :)ReplyDelete
Hey Anna, can you email me, please? bonniefandel at gmail dot comDelete
Did someone say giveaway? And cookies? I am SO there. While commenting here (or anywhere really) has taken a backseat, I just had to jump in. Who doesn't like a giveaway?! Hooray!ReplyDelete
Well, my daughter loves every single song you post. She asks for it again and again and again. They're all new to me!ReplyDelete
Fun!! You had me on mix tape. I entered and blogged about the contest on my 7 Quick Takes today. :-)ReplyDelete
Pretty stoked about all your great stuff, Bonnie. I love CDs and you always pick the best songs!ReplyDelete
Cookies! I give batches of made-from-scratch chocolate chip cookies as thank-you-presents to friends. I loooooooove good cookies.ReplyDelete
Was just clicking crazy - can't remember the question, but recently I've been loving Imelda May. I even created a Pandora station. Oh and I would love to eat some of your cookies and anything knit by hand is awesome.ReplyDelete
I'm all in!ReplyDelete
Ok, every single one of those things made me smile. Winning them would definitely make any day a happy day. (Also, I don't really want to be anonymous, but I can't figure out what the other options want from me, so... Hi! I'm cj!)ReplyDelete
Great giveaway! I just got this huge collection of America's Test Kitchen show recipes. It's 13 seasons of recipes. Hubs bought it for me for Valentine's Day! -AnneReplyDelete
Yum! I'm not sure cookies would survive a trip overseas, but I'm entering anyway just for the opportunity. :)ReplyDelete
Bonnie - I still have a mix tape you made me, oh, 10+ years ago? It holds up.ReplyDelete
That is AWESOME!Delete
NOM NOM NOM those cookies look AMAZING!!! I am hungry.ReplyDelete
Me, me! Save postage! And my kids would appreciate some secular music. : )ReplyDelete
After 40 days without chocolate - I NEED IT!!!!!!ReplyDelete
