Apple iPad Air

So here are a few of my favorite things- these are the things being offered in the giveaway.  The randomly selected winner will receive all of the items listed below.  EVERYONE who enters will also be entered to win an Apple iPad Air.

GIFT1#1:  Starbucks Gift Card:  Because a couple of drinks on the house are always a good thing, right?

Barney Butter
#2:  Crunchy Barney Butter (almond butter):  I don’t like all of the natural nut butters out there, but Barney Butter is my absolute favorite.

Drink Inks
#3:  Drink Inks:  These are fun glassware acrylic, re-usable decals for beverages.  They’re really fun for parties- put them out and let your guests choose which one they’d like to put on their glass or wine glass.  They even work on plastic cups.

keep calm bake on apron
#4:  Keep Calm and Bake On Apron:  Just a cute little mantra for those of us who like to bake 🙂

Wilton Cake Strips
#5:  Wilton Bake Even Cake Strips:  I use these for every cake I bake to get NICE, FLAT, EVEN cake layers.  You’ll love them.

#6:  Rubber Spatula:  I’m obsessed with rubber spatulas- I have zillion of them in all sizes, so that means you’re getting one too!

#7:  Tazo Calm Tea: (they sell it at Starbucks) is my favorite tea ever.  I suggest you drink it with a spoonful of sugar and a couple of tablespoons of milk.  YUM.

#8:  The Recipe Girl Cookbook (signed):  It’s my favorite cookbook- of course!

#9:  A cute MUG from World Market:  I love pretty mugs for coffee or tea.  Or hot chocolate!

#10:  Microplane:  This is another tool that I use in my kitchen CONSTANTLY… for shredding cheese and zesting fruit.

#11:  Fancy BLANKET:  I have a zillion blankets very similar to this one all over my house because I am constantly freezing.  This is to keep you warm this winter!

#12:  UNREAL Candy:  My family sampled all of this candy earlier this year and we were super impressed with how good it is.

    My most favorite thing is that as the holidays come upon us my job usually gives us a gift card to one of the local grocery stores here in Ohio, I love to take that gift card and give it to a family or single mother in need. One year I gave it away to a single mother sitting in church in front of my mother and I who needed milk for her son and groceries for her home, it felt so good to pay it forward to someone in need more than favorite thing is to give back not just at the holiday time.
