Yum! I was so looking forward to an edible giveaway!! I'm not a baker, but I do make pancakes from scratch twice a week. I love to sew little girl's dresses- or even if I don't love to sew them, I have a couple of girls that still love to wear what mommy makes. (most of the time)

I like to be creative when I bake, but my husband likes chocolate chip cookies, so we have those a lot! But I have a great recipe, so it's all good!

how is it that no-one has entered yet? i am always making banana bread squares-since we are picky about our bananas-they go from not ripe enough to too ripe in about a day! thanks for the giveaway!

Pound cake is my favorite choice because you can really do so much with it.
Sewing item would be, either pincushions or tote bags.

I love to make brownies, I can add all kinds of yummy stuff in to fancy them up, sometimes I frost them, it all depends on my mood.

I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

I wish I was a better baker but I'm just not but I keep trying, so for me I love my mini loaf pan and my tiny little tart pans and for sewing, a quick half apron makes a very quick gift.

Oh, I love baked goods! I like baking bread, but don't do it much. My favorite item to sew is the one I just finished - a nursing cover. Super useful (since we just had a LO), and it was pretty easy to boot.

Rebecca said...

Awesome giveaway! My favorite go to thing to bake is cupcakes! They are quick and easy, and so easy to change to fit the right occasion! My kids always want to bring them for treats at school!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Libby said...

I make these amazing applesauce "muffins" that are then dipped in melted butter and rolled in cinnamon and sugar. Yeah, gotta love traditional Dutch recipes.

My easy sewing project is the Crescent Moon Yoga Pants. So easy and quick to put on babies and little kids - sews up in 10-15 minutes and is easy diaper changes !

I both bake and sew. Baking; I shouldn't because of weight issues, but with 6 children, it's cheaper to bake than buy baked goods. My personal favorites to eat are cookies! I can't eat just one! So, if I want to be good and not eat everything in sight, I make something with chocolate...brownies, cake etc and I can stay good. Sewing I like to quilt and make the humbug bags often for gifts for people. Large or small they are so handy.

I love to make an Italian Rum Cake. It not only tastes great but.. makes the house smell wonderful while it is baking.

Sachets, sachets, sachets.. I love to create any type of sachet and fill them with lavender or spray them with a lovely perfume.

How fun to enter. Thank You
Margaret

My favorite baked thing would have to be chocolate chip cookies, I make a batch every week, I also make pie often.

I have a super easy dress pattern I use for my daughters.

I wish I had the time to make a yeast bread every week, but my compromise is the Joy of Cooking beer bread in the quick breads section - It is so quick, and delicious with soup!

Thanks for the chance to win!

My favorite easy project is a craft apron - basically two pieces of fabric and a little bias tape, some folding and stitching and you're done.

Sadly, I'm not a much of a baker.

Thanks for the opportunity -- Megan

I just made blackberry cobbler last week with blackberries we picked, but I wish I had gone with a pie. I don't think I'm a cobbler fan.
My favorite thing to bake is Banana Bread, especially when our bananas aren't being eaten fast enough. I use a recipe that I adapted myself. It uses yogurt and whole wheat flour, oats and a little bit of wheat germ. It is so good my husband eats it like cake.
Thanks for offering the chance to win!

Kassia said...

Oooo too many recipes to choose from! My personal favorites are chocolate cookies with Reese's pieces candies, homemade shortbread, banana bread, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. :)

Amanda said...

My go to baking item is a no knead bread. It's so easy, and so yummy. In fact, it's baking in my oven right now.

For sewing, it's a notebook/pencil holder for kids. I use a freebie tutorial, and make them for birthday gifts.

I love to make pilllow case dress for my daughter

ss said...

That soup in post below looks too good...I'm in SoCal and today it's like winter! I like it, but...anyway, I always fall back on chocolate chip cookies--I make tons of stuff (pies, clafoutis, etc.), but cookies comfort me! Thanks for the giveaway!
