I know a few people out there have been warned, and hinted that I'm doing a giveaway. In fact its my first giveaway. And what am i giving away you might ask. Well it's your very own copy of A World Of Cake by Krystina Castella. That's right one of you, my own readers may win this book and here is how:

Leave a comment telling me your favorite home town treat, Or family treat. Where it came from and who you learned it from. Make sure you leave your email address when you post so i can contact you when i get the winner from Random.org (that's so you all know i wont be picking any favorites and it is a random win!). Also no hard feelings for anyone over seas, or in other country's, it's just due to shipping reasons I can only accept entry's from anyone in the US. If anyone is bummed about this I am truly sorry but I hope you understand.

ALSO: i am going to do my project! So this week, using random.org I will be picking out one of the 150 recipes from A World of Cake, and the project will finally begin. In fact I am contemplating doing the whole book, but for now I'm sticking to just this year, one recipe per week!

GOOD LUCK! and let the giveaway begin!
(giveaway ends 1/14/2011 @ 11:59pm. Winner will be announced 1/15/2011. If you dont leave an email, you can always message me on facebook Eli Nicole Mattioda who your name is on your comment on this post! Thanks & have a sweet day!)


  1. I LOVE oatmeal cookies. I use a great recipe in my go-to cookbook The Joy of Cooking. I don't know what I would do without it.

  2. My Mom got a recipe from a friend many years ago for "Romance Cookies". They're actually a 2 layer bar with a flour/butter based crust, topped with a brown sugar, maple, walnut, cocoanut topping. They're goooey and so good.

    One of my favorite pot luck tricks too ;)

    Good luck with your project sounds like fun. Let me know if you need help

  3. You should already know what I'm about to say ... lol. Fruit & fruit dip!! *WE* learned it from Chris :) Use my k_nic13@yahoo.com email. You know I also <3 those strawberry & white chocolate cake pops, but I don't know how to make those l ol

  4. I have to go with my Mom's chocolate chip cookies. It was my Grandma's recipe, but my Mom actually measures my ingredients, where Grandma through measuring was over-rated. I make them for my son now...and measure carefully.

  5. Oh so many treats to choose from... Coconut cookies. The recipe is from a friend, and I usually only have them a few times a year at our art show. So simple to make, yet very yummy.
    Good luck with your challenge.

  6. My favorite is my mom's bibingka. It's a Filipino dessert made with rice flour and coconut milk. Considering that my daughter is on a gluten-free diet, it's great for her!

    Good luck on your baking challenge!

  7. it's ironic because i was just talking with a co-worker about our favorite childhood treats...mine is my mom's homemade hot chocolate! it's more than the chocolatey goodness - it was that special feeling i got after she made it on cold, snowy days! i wish i could replicate her recipe!

  8. My mom taught me how to make 'snowballs' at christmastime, my favorite time of year! They are so simple and SO delicious, my fiance and i ate an entire batch in 3 days. Pecans, butter, flour, powdered sugar and that's it! natalini@gmail.com
