I couldn't believe when I logged in today that it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I knew it had been awhile, but I really didn't think it had been that long. It definitely isn't because I don't have anything to tell you. In fact, a lot has been going on around this pigpen and that may be why it has been a few days since my last post. I know I've said it before, but I'm really going to try to do better.
So as you know my good friends over at The Real Farmwives of America and Friends launched a new project a few weeks ago called In the Cookie Kitchen with Gooseberry Patch. I happened to be lucky enough to be one of the ladies that participated in their virtual cookie swap. In fact, I "gave" Graham No-Bake cookies to Miss Marybeth of Alarm Clock Wars. In addition to the virtual cookie swap, the ladies are also hosting a big cookie linky party with the opportunity for one of their readers to win a Gooseberry Patch cookbook.
Now who doesn't love a Gooseberry Patch cookbook especially one of their Christmas cookie themed cookbooks.
This being said, I couldn't pass up the chance to purchase 4 different Gooseberry Patch cookbooks a few weeks ago. As part of a big sale, I was able to acquire Christmas Cookie Collection, Magic of Christmas, Old-Fashioned Country Cookies, and Jolly Holidays. (Per Gooseberry Patch, a few of these are even retired.) I was so excited and knew these cookbooks would be a great way for me to help share the spirit of Christmas with all of you and my fellow realfarmwives and friends.
So here is where it gets fun for me and you...
I decided to keep Old-Fashioned Country Cookies for myself. Merry Christmas to me!
Since my fellow realfarmwives and friends aren't eligible to enter any of the contests held on their blog, I decided to use two of these cookbooks as a giveaway of sorts for my ladies.
So unknown to my fellow realfarmwives, they were secretly entered into my giveaway by two different ways.
My first winner is Miss Liz from Two Maids a Milking. She will be receiving Magic of Christmas. (I used random.org to determine this winner amongst all of the ladies that participated in the virtual cookie swap: Jane, Megan, Liz, Jeanette, Meggie, Marybeth, and Cris.) Merry Christmas to Liz!
My second winner will be receiving Jolly Holidays. The winner of this cookbook will be determined by random.org with all of real farmwives and friends that enter the linky party before it ends and those that participated in the virtual cookie swap except for Miss Liz since she already won.
And now one of my lucky readers has to chance to win a copy of the now retired Christmas Cookie Collection complete with a set of Christmas cookie cutters. You have several chances to enter and you can use as many or as little of the entries as you want.
NOTE: To be officially enter you must enter through the widget and click, "I did this" for each of your eligible entries.
