Happy Friday!

There is a new, all natural cookie butter company on the scene and they are making the best
cookie butter creations ever!
What flavors?  They have 12!!  Red Velvet and Birthday Cake are my favorites.
Hand-crafted, small batches, and no chemicals or crap in there.These flavors are dangerous!
A nice assortment of cookie butters for the foodie in your family would make an awesome gift for the holiday.
Gooey On The Inside also makes cookies!  Imagine getting this as a Christmas present?

My friend Zoe Francois of the terribly talented blog zoebakes.com has a new & improved version
of her wildly famous cookbook: Artisan Bread In 5 Minutes a Day.
Her latest creations: The New Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day
What's new inside?
Gluten Free bread recipes in 5 minutes!
"....With more than half a million copies of their books in print, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François have proven that people want to bake their own bread, so long as they can do it easily and quickly. Based on fan feedback, Jeff and Zoë have completely revamped their first, most popular, and now-classic book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
Responding to their thousands of ardent fans, Jeff and Zoë returned to their test kitchens to whip up more delicious recipes.  They’ve also included a gluten-free chapter, forty all-new gorgeous color photos, and one hundred informative black-and-white how-to photos. They’ve made the “Tips and Techniques” and “Ingredients” chapters bigger and better than ever before, and included readers’ Frequently Asked Questions....."

  1. That cookie butter? Go on! I need. Checking out the 31 awesome uses for pumpkin and the slow cooker hoisin. You know I love these posts

  2. Ooh, I need that New Artisan Bread book!

  3. Dawn, I can't believe I won the cookbook! Yippee! I can't find your email address however. If you will email it to me I can send my address to you. My email is: jcanyon@msn.com
    Thank you so much and I love your blog and Friday links.

  4. I just got the Artisian Bread book. I have the 1st one, love. Havent cracked open this new one but I know it'll be great! And all the links, as always, love em! You find great stuff!

  5. I would say Lululemon TIES for most arrogant clothing company (or clothing company with most arrogant executives) with Abercrombie. But, they both def. suck. And are stupid overpriced.

  6. All your raving about that cookie butter has it bookmarked on my computer. Can't wait to try it! Have a great weekend :)

  7. im so getting some butter

  8. Good list, Dawn. The Charlie Trotter thing surprised me. 54 years old. Wow. And i liked that need to go to the funeral... Quite moving.

  9. look forward to watching the Fenway video and ya, the Lululemon stuff is making me never want to buy from there again.

  10. I am basically going to buy all the Gooey butters available, it's calling my name so much!

  11. Funny cartoon! Pinned it.
    Coming back later to go over your Friday list.

  12. These cookie butters sound dangerous. Very dangerous. I'm afraid of quickly they would disappear!

  13. Ok, I NEED that cookie butter. LIke seriously...tho it would mean i'd have to go out and buy new pants since I'm sure I'd outgrow them all within a week.


I love your comments!
