giveaway time!

It's about that time for.....a giveaway! Long overdue people. I was unsure of what to giveaway--wanted something good, really good you know? Something that really spoke to you, spoke to me and said 'thank you for being such wonderful, dedicated fans over the years'. Since I know you all are foodies and all love to cook, what better gift to give than $50.00 a gift certificate to Williams Sonoma. Yes, you read right $50.00. I mean if you're going to have a giveaway have a giveaway, right? Oh yes indeedy. And what's best? It's easy to enter. All you need to do is:

- leave a comment on this post telling me what you would like to see Vanilla Sugar 'make or kick up a notch' (tell me as much as your heart desires)

- make sure you're a fan of the Vanilla Sugar Facebook page.

- and if you want to tweet about this giveaway that's good too, but I won't enforce it.

On Friday May 7, 2010 I'll select a random number using the random generator to see who will win. For obvious reasons, anonymous comments don't qualify--please make sure your name, email and/or website are visible in your comment. Good luck and happy cooking!

The above cupcake is my sweet potato & vanilla bean cupcake featured here.

  1. Best giveaway ever! Except everything I want at Williams Sonoma is over $200. Hmmm...every little bit helps, right?

    I am going with a layered cheesecake. Then please send me a piece.

  4. I've always wondered if there was a way to kick up a banana pudding recipe. Every time I make it, I make it the same way every time....

    French vanilla pudding (never used banana, I think it's gross)

    chopped bananas
    milnot canned milk
    whipped cream (I whip the cream into the pudding mix)

    and of course, the wafers

    I do not bake it, just whip, add bananas and cookies and pop it in the fridge.

  7. Hooray for giveaways! I would love to see a really good strawberry pie recipe. I have been looking for one and have yet to find a truly good recipe. I'm positive you would make a great strawberry pie.

    ReplyDelete
  8. An unusual way to use all the strawberries out there right now!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Can you really kick things up anymore? I am sure you will come up with something though, you always do! I love your breakfast sweets-muffins, scones, etc. but I love all of your recipes:)

  15. Great giveaway! I'm always on the lookout for great, go-to bar cookie recipe. They make a lot of goodies with minimal work. I make cookies for my husband's company to give away at Christmas and, of course, my own. It's also really great when the recipe includes instructions about how to cut the bar cookies so that they look pretty and perfect, without the top caving in, etc. Some need to be cut when they're warm, some need to be refrigerated....it's such a bummer to make a great tasting cookie and then mash the heck out of it trying to cut it into bars. My eaters don't seem to mind, but I just love a beautiful bar cookie!

  121. Great Giveaway!!! I've been a facebook fan from the beginning.

    Do you think you could kick up a chocolate cheesecake recipe because I made one and it came out pretty good, but it just needed something extra.

    And I've also been wanting to bake something using fruit like berries or maybe even black cherries so if you could make something using any of those that would be really great :)

  166. Boy, that is a tough one-your posts have run the gamut and are drool worthy. Hmmm, something with rhubarb? My plants are abundant and I have two go-to recipes, but the guys at work love to try new things.....


    I of course follow you on FB :-)

  167. Just found your blog and you've definitely made my short list! Here's an idea for something that needs kicking up...key lime pie. I've tried to make my recipe stand out and I just can't seem to master it. I bet you have a scathingly brilliant idea on just how to do it. And when you do, I'll be the first one to try!!

    Thanks,
    Daria

  168. Love this giveaway!

    Something to be kicked up is a hard one as there is so many yummy things on here. But I'm going to go with breakfast casserole/strata/quiches with exoctic/different ingredients...
