First Anniversary Blog Give-a-Way.....

I can't believe I have been blogging for a year, time flies when you are having fun!!! And I've been having fun with all baking I have been doing. It all started with Tuesdays with Dorie, then the Daring Bakers (now Daring Kitchen) and finally Sweet Melissa Sundays. So, in honor of my one year anniversary, I am having a give-a-way. It's easy and won't take you away from your kitchen for too long, just answer two questions, that's all; I said it would be easy.

Here you go:

1. Do you prefer Boy (with nuts) or Girl (without nuts) Brownies?

2. What do you like most about your kitchen?

I will use a random number generator to pick the winners, yes winners, I have two prizes to give a way!!! The first is Enlightened Cakes by Camilla Saulsbury, and the other prize is a Tovolo Ice Cream Sandwich Mold set.

You have a great change to win because I don't get a lot of traffic on my blog. I will announce the winners on August 1 and let you know who won!!! Good luck!!!

Congratulations on your one year anniversary! I would have to say boy brownies (I thought the girl vs. boy analogy was hilarious). My favorite part of my kicthen... aside from my wonderful oven, I love that its open to my family room so I can cook and watch my kids at the same time!

I would have to say girl brownies. I don't like having nuts in my brownies. It just doesnt really appeal to me.
I have two kitchens that I use regularly. The one at my apartment at school and then the one at home. The one at school, I just love having all the space available with the various countertops. It makes things easier. As for the one at home, I love the fact that the oven is one of those in the wall ones. It makes things easier to take out and there's technically TWO ovens!

Congrats on the milestone! Here's to many more to come :D

I'd have to say boy brownies, I love the crunch you get with a nutty brownie! My favorite thing about my kitchen is how it over looks my back garden, I love cooking up a storm and watching the cats gallop around the lawn chasing bees. Lovely.

Congrats on your first year!!! As for brownies, I definitely prefer boys. I like anything with nuts. And what do I like best about my kitchen - my pink Kitchen Aid mixer. It makes me so happy.

Tracey said...

Congratulations on your first anniversary of blogging! Hope your second year is just as successful :)

As for the brownies, I'm going with girl brownies. I'm not really a fan of nuts in most things. My favorite part of my kitchen is all of the light it gets. It faces west so I get a ton of afternoon sun.

Beth said...

Congrats! I love girl brownies - no nuts here. Just plain ol' rich chocolate. My favorite part of the kitchen is my brand new kitchen island. We just bought it off craigslist and it's awesome. Yay for more counterspace!

love your blog, btw.

One year? Wow - time does fly.

Anyways, girl brownies - definitely. And my favorite part of my kitchen would be my 2 dishwashers. I love them.

Give-aways bring commenters out of the woodwork, so don't worry! Yea on your one-year anniversary! I think I'm just two weeks ahead of you! I like girl brownies, and my favorite thing about my kitchen is...hmmm...I don't really like my kitchen! It is beautiful, but too small!

Wow, one year, congratulations! I would have to say I'm a girl brownie kind of... girl... Which was a great analogy, btw. As for my kitchen, I'm moving in about a month, so my favorite thing about my current kitchen is the huge pantry, and my favorite thing about my new kitchen is the natural light (my current kitchen is at the absolute inside of the apartment and has zero natural light).

Good luck on your competition coming up, too! See you when you get back!

Congratulations on your anniversary!!

I actually switch from boybrownies to girlbrownies all the time, it depends on my mood: sometimes I just want my brownies without the nuts and other times it is not complete without the nuts!

What I like most about my kitchen is the space I have, it's so much bigger than the one in my old house and it's so much newer too!! (I live in my current years for 5 years and had a new kitchen installed about 2,5 years ago)

Happy Blogoversary!

1. I love all brownies, but if I had to choose it would be boy brownies.
2. What I love the most about my kitchen is the counter space. I love that I can spread out. (cooking in my mother's kitchen has made me appreciate this more)

Happy Blogiversary!
I prefer Girlie brownies.
My favorite part of my kitchen is tricky because it's so tiny... so I'll say that I'm able to bake in it! =)
How did your competition go?

TeaLady said...

One year!!! (Imagine confetti and balloons!!!)

I love boy brownies. Guess its all about the NUTS!!! LOL

Anyway, the favorite part of my kitchen is all the storage space I have since we enlarged it. Oh, and the huge window that looks out over my back yard.

Thanks for the chance.

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary!!! It hasn't been quite a year for me yet, but time sure flies when you're having fun.

Fun questions, btw. Here are my answers:
1) Girl Brownies since I'm allergic to most nuts. I can eat almonds and I've tried almond brownies but I prefer the brownies without the crunch.
2) What I love about my kitchen is that I can bake anything I want in it. It's not a huge kitchen but I have everything setup in such a way that it's all within reach anytime I feel like baking (which is VERY often) :o) The best parts in the kitchen? My 2 KitchenAids (got a 600 Pro for my bday last year) and of course my oven.

Congratulations on one year!!! I definitely prefer brownies without nuts, so girl it is! Though I decided to make the recent TWD brownies with nuts, and they surprised me - I loved them.

My favorite thing in my kitchen is definitely my KA mixer. I had wanted one since I was about 10 years old, and finally got one for my birthday this year (almost 20 years later...).

Congratulations on one year! 1) Girl brownies, definitely. 2) My favorite thing about my kitchen is that it's all mine (and my boyfriend's). I lived with roommates for years, so now it's exciting for me to be able to stretch out and not have to worry about cluttering it up.

Happy Bloggaversary!

1. I like Boy Brownies!
2. I love the lil space i have in the kitchen for my toddler. She sits there and plays with pots & pans while i'm working in the kitchen.

Nancy/n.o.e said...

Congrats on your anniversary - your blog is just a few weeks older than mine! And you'll get to pick for TWD first, too...

I used to dislike nuts in any baked goods but now I like them, so I'll eat a brownie either way. Most times I'd pick a brownie without them, though.

What I love about my kitchen is all the counter space I have; I spread out and make a total mess when I cool or bake!

Mermaid Sweets said...

Congrats! Happy anniversary. I prefer without nuts, and I only like my kitchenaid in my kitchen - I have the smallest worst apartment kitchen, I can't wait for a house.
