Here we are. That ubiquitous milestone. The 100th post. And this is the package of goods I will give away to one commenter to celebrate the occasion.
First up is a cookbook, made by me, that celebrates my mother and the wonderful contents of her recipe box. The photos are of my copy, which you can see is well loved and frequently used. The chocolate cake recipe is my go-to cake for birthdays. Can you tell?
The winner will receive a new copy, all 181 pages, replete with fantastic recipes and embarrassing family photos, packaged in a handy spiral binding that lays flat while you cook.
I love that photo of my eldest brother in lederhosen. I wonder if I will torment my son in a similar fashion. It’s likely.
My mom’s parents provide a handsome introduction to the dessert section.
I will also throw in a set of 5 inch fabric squares equal to a half yard of fabric, similar to the ones pictures below, if you like them. Otherwise, the winner can let me know what they like, and I will try to get my fabric stash to cooperate. This part of the giveaway was inspired by Juliette and her brilliant Spare Change Swap. This is the kind of swap that I can handle. No pressure to actually create anything. All I had to do was stare at my fabric selection, pick out my favorites, cut them up into little squares, and ship them off.
And finally, in case you need something to do with those 5 inch squares, the winner will also receive a little birdie similar to the one pictured below made from the excellent pattern provided over at Spool Sewing. Do you need more convincing that making these birds is a good idea? Check this out.
So, just say a quick hello in the comments section and I will send these silly prizes off in a nice little package to one winner. Please don’t sweat it if you haven’t commented before and thanks so much for checking in on this little corner of the internet.
UPDATE: Contest closed. #21 was the winner. I will be in touch with Vanessa by email.
