100th post, $100 gift card giveaway!

DSCN4799 (2)

100 seems like a special number. We celebrate 100th birthdays and anniversaries and days of school, so why not 100 blog posts?

100 posts might not seem like a big deal to many people, but to me, it is a reason to celebrate, a reason to reward the people who have been with me for the beginning steps of this journey. I love sharing recipes and life with you and hope there will be many more posts yet to come.

To celebrate, I am giving away one gift card to Amazon.com for $100! You can use it for whatever you want–new kitchen gadgets, favorite music or movies, roller skates, tools, books, maybe some sugar free gummy bears or a banana slicer (read the reviews first)?

  1. You definitely inspire me to try new things! Knowing that you are a mom who can find time to make such yummy creations for your kiddos gives me motivation to cook for my kids. The chocolate chip cookies you made are the best I’ve ever had and I love how you adjusted to recipe for high altitude. I admit I made some a couple months ago but was feeling lazy & didn’t look up your recipe. I just followed the recipe on the back of the package, NEVER AGAIN! Lesson learned, I will only be using your recipe in the future! Lovetheblog! Yay a for 100 posts!

    • Thank you for your comment, Rebecca! I am glad the blog has been helpful for you.

  2. I really enjoy reading your blog. Thank you for putting your yummy dishes here so that I can try to make them. I truly miss your goodies on Wednesday’s.

  3. I like the recipes and I love your cooking and baking, but my favorite part of the blog is when you include your personal stories and submissions.

    I think it’s hard for some people to be honest about their weaknesses, because they are afraid of others knowing about their blemishes.

    Because of your brave, articulate (and often times funny) posts- you open the window and let the sunshine in- inspiring and freeing others to face their weaknesses and embrace life.

  4. I love reading your blogs – not just for the recipes, but because I love how you write! You’re kind, funny, insightful, plus, I get to say “I knew you when”! Btw, I’ve made the peanut butter eggs on more than one occasion, & they’re a bit every time! Keep it up, lady – you rock!

    • Thank you so much for reading my blog and for your encouragement. I am glad the peanut butter eggs have been a hit.

  5. Love all of your recipes. Have mad a few of them. Look forward to making many more 😊 it was wonderful seeing u this summer and our kids meeting for the first time!!!

    • I’m glad you are enjoying the recipes. Yes, it was wonderful to see you and your family too. It was a really nice part of our visit, and I hope we can do it again sometime when we visit Minnesota.

  6. I really enjoy reading your blog and recipies. I have been working on a blog and I now know just how much time and work goes into blogging! Your doing great!!!! I use your monster cookie recipe, the one I previously used made such a huge batch and I always cut it down but so much easier to use yours!

    • Thank you for your support and encouragement. I’m glad you have found the blog useful. Are you thinking of doing a cooking blog? It does take some time, but it has been so much fun to connect with people and share something I love. I am also happy to have the recipes and notes I have made put into a place and format that can be accessed anywhere and any time. Even though my kids are young, they already talk about using the blog someday to make “mommy’s cookies or ____.” I love that.

  7. You are such an inspiration! Amazing that you have put all of this together with everything else that you do!

  8. I love reading your posts and getting ideas to use in my own kitchen. I just need to get the motivation to try a recipe by making it myself. My kids love your food. And I try to look at your posts each time I notice one pop up in my newsfeed.

  9. I have recently found your blog through a friend. In always looking for new recipes, especially ones that my children would enjoy. I can’t wait to try your baked chicken requires and your fresh lemon bars. Yum!

  10. Your cookie and recipe are to die for! Well, and the cakes are a family favorite!! Thank you for being willing to share your recipes with others!

  11. Love your blog- easy to read and understand, I know it’s ‘tried and true’ recipes, and I enjoy reading the stories that sometimes accompany. I love the variety of recipes.
    I like learning about gadgets, baking/cooking tips, new products, and I like knowing the science behind why things do or do not work. I also like knowing people’s ‘kitchen fails’, so I don’t make the same mistake.
    I think a Facebook page would be a great idea for you. I will share your blog on my page, but again I only have like 20 friends since I only do family members now. The email sign up box popped up on me, so I signed up. And I think a weekly recap would be great.
    Thanks Christine!

  12. i was just cehcking out your things to come! YUMMY! I love how the things you make look like something I can attempt myself! i am looking forward to the cornucopias!

  13. We’ve tried several of your recipes.. they have all been family favorites!
