Christmas Cookie Favorites!

December 16th, 2010

What is your favorite Christmas cookie? Is there one that you have to have every year? Here are a few favorites…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies: I love these! delicious bites of brownie cookies. They are really easy if you need to bring something to a holiday party because everyone loves them and they pack easily!

Peanut Butter Hershey Kiss Cookies: These are my family’s favorite!  One year I didn’t want to make them in an effort to save some calories.  Well, my family was not to happy so I had to make them anyway.  The key is to not over cook them so they remain soft.

Depression Bars: It really is not Christmas without these… delicious!

Macarons: These are not traditional Christmas cookies but this year I have visions of red and green macarons. I’ll keep you posted on what transpires.

Truffles: A great gift idea! or for private consumption!

Getting out of a Slump and Giveaway Winner

December 1st, 2010

Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions for helping me get out of my slump…  Some of the common themes included baking something tried and true (such as chocolate chip cookies) and giving them away… mmm… well, I decided to make my family’s favorite chocolate chip cookies… and bring them to school for the last week of class… Also, I am happy to announce that LAURA is the winner of the WEBstaurantStore giveaway!  Congratulations!

A Monday Cookbook Giveaway

November 1st, 2010

It is Monday… the days are getting shorter… exams are getting closer… so I think we need a little bit of Chocolate and chocolate cake

For the next five weeks, I’m going to be giving away cookbooks from my collection.  Although I never thought I could part with my cookbooks, when it comes to moving in May, I will be happy I did this (I have way too many).  My first one will be Chocolate which has amazing photos and great recipes!

As for the chocolate cake, it was good but… as soon as it gets warm the consistency is too pudding like for my tastes.  Keep it cold and use high quality chocolate.

Now how to enter… Each of the following will give you an entry but you only have to do one…

1. Leave a comment below with your favorite chocolate dessert.

2. Tweet the giveaway linking to @ginnygetsfloury and leave an extra comment letting me know.

3. Follow me on twitter and leave an extra comment letting me know.

4. Like me on Facebook and leave an extra comment letting me know.

I’ll pick a winner next week Monday, November 8th and put up another cookbook.  If you do not win this round, I’ll transfer your entry to the next round.  Sorry but I can only ship to the US.
