Mmmm....and a giveaway!

It's no secret here that I enjoy cooking...and that I love to bake. I started Recipe Wednesdays a few years ago in an attempt to share some of our family favorites with you...

Some of my favorites (and your favorites) that I've shared with you???


And I've definitely learned over the years that recipes need pictures...Brent will tell you that often, dinner waits until a proper picture has been taken!

I have plans to give the blog a little facelift soon, and I hope to have all recipes a bit more organized and accessible for you!

In this house with two little girls, we have lots of tea parties...I adore baking for tea parties!

So I thought for the first giveaway, I'd give a few gifts from my kitchen to yours...ones that are favorites of mine...and ones to help you with your own afternoon tea!

Included in this giveaway:

Simplify Lemon Curd...it's delicious. It definitely challenges some of the freshest lemon curd I've sampled!
Tazo Earl Grey Tea...my favorite choice all day long. (And perfect for making Earl Grey Lattes!)
Next Organic Dark Chocolate Covered Apricots...a perfect addition to a tea tray...or for snacking anytime!
a Pastry Blender...for making melt-in-your-mouth scones
and a one-year subscription to Better Homes & Gardens, one of my favorite publications for choosing delicious and taste-tested recipes!

(Sorry...the assorted china pictured stays on my shelves!)

If you'd like to be entered in this giveaway, please leave a comment with your name and the name of your favorite recipe. Comments will be accepted through Monday, March 28 at midnight EST.

Thanks for stopping by...hope you continue to enjoy the recipes shared here!

One of my favorite recipes is Lemon squares. I make them from a cookbook compiled from the Montessori school that I went to.

Wow how generous of you! I love all of these items & I love cooking too. I think on Friday I'm going to have a tea party with my daughter. I may try those scones you had posted last time!

Ella said...

kimber, so fun that you're doing a giveaway!! i have to say that one of my favorite recipes is for an apple struesel pie out of one of my southern living cookbooks. best apple pie ever!! but now that i see you have a similar recipe with a twist (the sour cream filling), I am definitely going to have to try that as well! and once we get our kitchen finished, i'm looking forward to trying out some of your scone recipes...i have never tried making them before but have always wanted to. thanks for sharing all of your delicious recipes!! Everyone I've tried has been a success...especially with my boys! :)

What an awesome giveaway. I absolutely love lemon curd!

sarah corbin said...

Kimber, you're back! Yay!!! So, I think something must be wrong with my computer b/c I check to see if you've posted something at least every other day, and I'm almost positive I looked on monday and didn't see anything since valentine's day. Today I got to catch up on a whole lot of blogs you've apparently written. Hmmm. Well, I hope my computer decides to behave now.
I have really wanted to try your peppermint clouds, but haven't seen peppermint ice cream in the stores lately. (and I've been looking b/c being pregnant makes you remember delicious sounding foods.) Once we start making homemade ice cream this summer, that will be one of the first recipes I try out.
If I had to pick a recipe I've tried already that is my favorite, I'd say Pioneer Woman's chicken parmigiana. It's de-li-cious!

I love your grasshopper torte. Which was the first thing I thought of. But as I scrolled to it to make sure that's what it's "officially" called and there it was -- Gouda Croissant, which is pretty much amazing-ness.

And Sarah, there's nothing wrong with your computer. I did the same thing. I'm pretty sure Kimber just back-dated her posts...

How fun that you are doing this! I miss your smile. You always brought a smile to my face in college.

My favorite recipe is called Chinese Cole Slaw and it reminds me of summer bbq's. So...it's almost time to make it again!

Kristian and Katy said...

So fun!! (I have come to your site specifically the past years to find dessert recipes!! thank you!)

Though it wasn't always the case, one of my favorites now is just a good simple oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I usually eat about 6 cookies worth of dough and then one right out of the oven. Kristian eats the rest! :)

Stephanie said...

sopapilla cheesecake is a favorite. i have had more people ask me for the recipe, so i keep a copy in my email! thanks for suggesting it a few years ago when i needed a mexican dessert for community group. :)

Mario and Andrea Rodriguez said...

Love all your recipes - thanks for always sharing. I love to make an easy salad for pot lucks at the office - I call it Asian Brocolli Slaw. (paula dean has a good dressing, but sometimes I change it up a bit)

Can I say I have never had hot tea? how weird is that. all my favorite recipes are from pioneer woman.

Melissa said...

I love to make Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, a recipe I found in Cooks Illustrated magazine. Yum!

Thanks for the chance to win!

snoppybug said...

YUM - lemon curd! I could eat it out of the jar with a spoon...one of my favorite recipes is Pioneer Woman's pot roast - I make it all the time.

Thanks for the chance to win some fun stuff!

Lexi said...

No idea you did recipe wednesdays-I will have to check back in. Always looking for something new to add to the recipe repertoire. Right now one of my fav recipes, it seems to rotate!, Lemon squares--Yum!

Erin said...

I love that you have links to recipes. Lots of good stuff. One of my favorite recipes to make right now is asparagus, mushroom and blue cheese pizza. Super easy. Make or buy fave pizza dough, top with olive oil and a little fresh mozzarella, saute mushroom and asparagus with olive oil and garlic and add to pizza, top with a sprinkling of blue cheese and bake. SO good.

notetoself said...

Thanks for the links! I'll have to check out that tex-mex ravioli.

Shawna said...

one of my all time favs is your mom's chicken pot pie. :)

Lovely recipes. My favourite recipe is Cranachan a Scottish pudding with raspberries, cream, oatmeal and meringue.

diane said...

I love trying the recipes you share on your blog. Thanks for taking the time to type them out for all of us. One of my favorite recipes to serve company is garlic chicken farfalle. I just made it for my family last night and they loved it.

Allison said...

My favorite recipe would be for Heidi Swapp's chocolate chip cookies. If you'd like it, I'd be happy to send it to you. Pure deliciousness. Ooey & gooey too!
