Gingerbread Men...last chance on the giveaway!

We are not going to talk about the burning of the cookies. Not going there. Let's just say I got a little carried away with the kiddos and totally forgot they were in the oven. I know..."it's called a timer..." Yaaadaaa, ya-da-ya-da. I hope this doesn't deter yesterday's winner from wanting me to come over and do a little one on one cooking. Verena B! Please email me (chef-tess@hotmail.com) with your contact information so we can set up your winnings! I just figured out you are local to the Phoenix valley...so you'll get the cooking class too!

Now...

On to today. Look at this picture. Doesn't it look like a cookie cutter commercial? It is. In a good way. Ann Clark is offering my sweet loving readers a 10% off sale for their website! This will be good through the end of the year! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah...whatever you celebrate or not.

Thank you for the lovely cookie cutters that we are giving away this week! So cute!

Almost see it in the catalog huh? Meet my girl! I borrowed her for the day. This is Lollie.

Cutting out cookies together and loving her cute little girl fingers. My boys don't have fingernail polish on their nails (last I checked).

I love the recipe from Ann Clark for Gingerbread Cookies! It's awesome. It comes tied to every gingerbread cookie cutter printed on a cute card. ( See:Gingerbread Cookies, Yesterday's winner and Today'... )

Yeah, feel free to use these pictures as your family Christmas card...but be sure to put a link to my blog on it.
Simple decorations. Before baking...add red hot candy buttons. They stick in the oven.

Something crazy cool is to lightly paint a design on the cookies with either natural extracts...or food coloring, whatever you have.

Nice new clean brush...
Very traditional look.
"I didn't agree to wear that puffy pirate shirt...she's a low talker!"

Let the kids try the pastry bag...even just once is good...

I will stop talking with my mouth open from now on...I swear.
Thank you Cake...

One final word...don't forget that today is the last day. Our final giveaway (for this week anyway) ends Saturday night at midnight. One more gingerbread house cookie cutter and a cooking session with me (one entry per household per day...you provide the transportation if you want me to come to see you out of state or whatever...Ace has to come with me.) So leave a comment or send me a personal email to enter the contest. I'm excited to see who the final one will be. Don't forget to check out the holiday baking supplies I am loving right now.

Ann Clark is offering my sweet loving readers a 10% off sale for their website! In order to get the deal you will need to enter this code: BLGA13. This will be good through the end of the year! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah...whatever you celebrate or not.
