Sluggy's In The Kitchen Baking Some Love + A Giveaway!
Batten Down the Hatches!
Alert the Media.....er, I mean Alert the FIRE DEPARTMENT!!
Sluggy is in the Kitchen BAKING!
I suddenly got all fired up and am ready to take on a full throttled Cookie making session.
Knowing me, I'll run out of energy at about the 3rd batch of cookies(despite the CHEEZ-ITS in the picture)and have to take a few days to get them all done....but I will!
What got me charged up?
MyBlogSpark arranged for me to receive a Betty Crocker Cookie Mix, some GladWare containers and a Gift Card to Safeway to purchase whatever else I need to bake some cookie goodness.
And the booty arrived on Saturday, just in time to get me motivated to bake for the Holidays.
We've had a tradition at our house of baking cookies together on Christmas Eve.
But this year I am going to start a new tradition for our family and do a Cookie Exchange with our neighbors. It's a great way to get to know your neighbors or maybe to rekindle friendships. And these GladWare containers are just the thing for toting the sweets to your neighbors.
For great holiday recipe ideas, how-to videos, and tips for hosting your very own cookie exchange, visit BakeSweetMemories.com. While you’re there, be sure to play the new Sweet Memories game that gives you the chance to instantly win free Betty Crocker products!
I played the game and won a free bag of cookie mix coupon. 8-)
I've got my trusty family favorite cookie recipes but I'll be checking out the Bake Sweet Memories Website as well for a couple of new cookie varieties to add to my repertoire.
MyBlogSpark,Safeway,Betty Crocker and Glad have also supplied me with a duplicate prize package to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!
The winner will receive a package of Betty Crocker Cookie Mix, a package of GladWare containers(nice big sized ones!)& a $25 Gift Card to any of the Safeway chain of Grocery Stores!!
The list of stores includes Safeway, Vons, Dominick's, Randall's, Tom Thumb and Genuardi's.
There are 3 ways to enter to win this giveaway.
1. Mandatory before doing any other entries.....Leave a comment on this post telling me your most favorite type of cookie.
2. Follow my blog(via the button on the right sidebar-Google Friend Connect) and leave a comment. If you already follow just leave a comment saying that you do already.
3. Blog about this giveway and leave a comment. Be sure and leave a link to the post in your comment. In addition, if someone enters the giveaway and says they saw it on your blog, you both get 3 extra entries!
Since it's so close to Christmas and many people are busy, plus there is no way whoever wins will receive their prize package in time to use it for the Holidays, I'll leave this Contest open until DECEMBER 30th at 11:59pm. That will give everyone plenty of time to enter.
(This is where I disclose that the coupon, prize pack, information and additional prize pack to give away were all given to me from Safeway, Betty Crocker, and Glad through MyBlogSpark, so that we are cool with the FCC and all those media lawyer and regulator types.)
