Friday Favorites and a Giveaway!

If you've been following my blog for a while you know that I have a problem with buying things in multiples, especially magazines...

The magazines have been accumulating over the past year since my subscription mania event, though I am starting to let many of my subscriptions lapse, but I absolutely ADORE the special Holiday baking editions. And by adore, I mean, well...

I have purchased 18 this holiday season...(that's just Christmas themed, there are also fall & halloween issues that I did not count)
**i'm whispering this so that hopefully hubs won't read it...shhh--don't tell on me!**

Well, as I have unfortunately not kept up with the reading of the magazines as I come in, to my shock and horror I saw that I had purchased two copies of the same issue!! boo!

Better Homes & Gardens Ultimate Cookies edition
**I think I was confused by the fact that the title to one is in shiny letters and the other isn't**

So I figured that I would use my confusion to benefit someone else, so I'm doing my first giveaway!!

If you want to be entered to win a free copy of this, just leave a comment and let me know if you have any favorite Christmas cookies to bake or eat! (if you are reading this on facebook but want to be entered into the drawing, head over to my actual blog and enter a comment here)

Sorry that I haven't been very active lately--I missed TWD this week, but I have been doing a ton of baking and work for my Open House this weekend so I am beat! Hopefully I will be able to catch up on everything soon!


  1. Sarah, that's pretty sad, dear. You need a magazine intervention. :)

    I love making snickerdoodles around Christmas time!

  2. I like homemade peanut butter cookies with a hershey's kiss on top. Mom used to make them every Christmas and I'd help :)

  3. Sounds like something I would do! I can so relate!

    My favorite is Spritz, made with the cookie press that belonged to my mother!

  4. Wow! That's a lot of magazines...and I'm jealous!
    My plan for this Christmas is to make those Linzer Sables from Dorie's cookbook. They look so fancy, but really seem pretty simple to make. Yum!
