Bake It Pretty Giveaway!!

in Giveaway

Giveaway update! Thank you all for entering. Now I’m seriously craving butternut squash, pumpkin pie and apple cider. I’m gonna have to make some apple cider muffins very, very soon. The winner is:

Congrats, Kim!

Guess what?! Umm…I like you. A lot. I’m glad you’re around.

Umm..on another note, how is summer almost over?! How did that happen?! Where did it go? ….and on top of me just realizing summer’s almost over, it’s Monday! In the name of self-pity, I think it’s fitting that I gift you a little something.

I ordered some stuff from my favorite online baking store, Bake It Pretty. I ordered: fluted flower cupcake liners, stripey straws, berry baskets and big birthday candles.

One person will win all of this awesome stuff. All you have to do is leave a comment below answering this question:

“What fall food are you most looking forward to?”

You all have by end of day Wednesday, August 18th.

And whoever wins, has to promise me they’re going to put their stripey straws to good use and make this Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake. It’s the right thing to do.

And these Pink Lady Cupcakes with the fluted flower cupcakes liners…

Oh and even if you buy berries that come in those not-so-cute plastic containers, just swap them out for the berry baskets. It’ll make your fridge cuter! Cuteness is important.

I’m gonna have to say fresh made elephant ears at the Pumpkin Show festival with chocolate and/or caramel dipping sauce. I could easily make them…but something about going and getting them made for you once a year makes them extra special!

Honestly? The best part of fall is drinking big steaming mugs of hot sweet tea- Irish breakfast in the mornings, a nice cup of our stand-by regular Lipton with lunch, at night maybe a spicy orange or an earl grey or back to a breakfast blend- but our favorite time of day is if Mark can come home at 4 – my nephews with the bottomless pits for stomachs are chilling with a bowl of popcorn after homework is done, we call our grown up kids and tell them to come over for a bit while I whip up a batch of buttermilk oatmeal scones for the whole crowd. Everyone takes a break with hot tea and buttered scones, jars of different jams line the counter, the dogs mill around hopefully scavenging for crumbs – it makes my heart full and my life is complete at that moment, baking for those I love and having them all home at the same time-

Apple pie. Definitely.

I’m looking most forward to bow tie pasta with pumpkin sauce. A close second would have to be chicken pot pie.

Pumpkin anything – pie, ice cream (or milkshakes), cookies, holiday roll, cookies. Hot ciders – apple or cranberry, actually almost any hot drink like buttered rum or whisky toddy.

The fall food I’m most looking forward to is apple pie.

I promise! I DOUBLE DOG SWEAR to make that amazing shake… even if I don’t win. I’ve actually been saving it for a special occasion. :) I love all of their pretty stuff, I’m like a kid in a candy store.

Mmmm…fall makes me think pumpkin. Every year I make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins in celebration of the season, and then pumpkin bread later on. If not pumpkin, something maple-y. Yum.

Like so many people, I’m looking forward to apple pie. A slice of warm apple pie topped with some shredded cheddar cheese was my favorite as a little kid because that’s how grandpa liked it. Guess the little kid in me hasn’t grown up because that’s still how I like it.

PUMPKIN! I am really excited for the pumpkins to be in seaason this fall. Everything from the pumpkin patch and carving, to eating them of course. I am especially interested in finding and trying new recipes with pumpkin–something aside from the usually pie recipes. Let’s get cupcakes, muffins, scones, and everything else delicious with pumpkin in it!

I am looking forward to turkey and cranberry sandwiches the most, leftovers after Thanksgiving.

Candice August 18, 2010 at 12:51 pm

Honestly the first thing that came to mind was Pumpkin! But on second thought…was Thanksgiving stuffing. Especially the corn bread kind. Mmmmm. I also can’t wait to experiment with my apple cider cupcake recipes I’ve had sitting around.l :)

CHILI, and mums, which are not a food, but my other favorite Fall thing!

The country that I come from, really doesn’t have fall as a season (we only know it exists by reading books and looking at pictures; what you are taught at school, etc.) leaves never fall from trees and never change colors. The only “clear” seasons are winter and summer. It may sound weird but it is really the way it is; so food is not seasonal, you can eat oranges, corn, bananas, etc all year round. What changes are the festivities and traditions and the appropiate food for them. The “day of the dead” is a day in which you remember people in your life that are “ahead” of you…and it is celebrated the last day of October. People visit the cemetery and bring food, being the most representatives of the day: a special kind of bread with cinnamon and sugar; and “champurrado” a hot beverage made from chocolate, cinnamon, anis seed, clove, sugar and vanilla.
I’m looking forward to honor my late members of the family and eating the delicious bread and drinking “champurrado”.

Oh, please pick me! I just moved across the country and have been dying to bake…it reminds me of home.

Ooohhhh….chili! And pumpkin pie!

What’s not to love about fall cooking. Summer is an embarrassment of riches, but it’s too hot to want to cook. Fall means apple pie, stew with root veggies, roasts, baked delicata squash with brown sugar and butter with just a touch of nutmeg and hot apple cider and the farm we supported through a CSA program. C’mon autumn!!

Sherry August 19, 2010 at 7:13 am

I love you, love your blog, and love this giveaway! As cliche as it sounds, I’d have to go with pumpkin pie! For some reason we never ever have pumpkin unless its in the fall. I miss it!

Laurie August 19, 2010 at 7:32 pm

My own gingerbread cookies! I bake so many during the holidays that people think I’m crazy but I love sharing the simple cutout designs and the rich flavor. I periodically bake some in the spring but they just seem to taste better in the fall and winter!
