williams-sonoma giveaway.

(This giveaway is closed.)

Sometimes I feel like I’m not completely honest with you.

Sure, I blather on a good deal about tartlets, quick breads and epic baking fails. I even post a few pictures of my travels from time to time or tell you when I haven’t shaved my legs. But I don’t always tell you how I feel about you. I don’t always tell you, dearest reader, how grateful I am that you are here. How your visits, your hilarious and sweet comments, your inspiring and encouraging e-mails make me smile and feel all the warm fuzzies inside. And if I can’t tell you all this at Christmastime, well then, when can I?

W-S gift card.

So here it is: Thank you for being here. Thank you for being here to spend a few minutes with me. Thank you for sharing your experiences in the kitchen. Thank you for being so gracious and kind when I royally screw up a bread and make a salad out of it. Thank you for allowing me to turn this passion of mine not only into a career, but a way of life. Thank you for being wonderful.

Now about this here gift card I’ve already taunted you with: Because ’tis the season for giving and I have a crush on Williams-Sonoma, I’m giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky, loyal reader. It’s pennies compared to how thankful I am for you, but I hope you like it. Use it to buy Mom that madeleine pan she’s always wanted, or your best friend this adorable apron. Or treat yo’self and get a little something sweet or savory (or both).
