I think I need that cookie stamp!

Gosh, I also need to pencil in some me time at my local Indigo (it's huge!). I miss those browsing days.

The Orchard

Oooh! Great giveaway! I would choose the book by Ina! I don't have any of hers!



I'm itching to get the Smitten Kitchen cookbook. It's on my list this year! Thanks!


So hard to choose! I'd say the fondue set. Or My Berlin Kitchen. Or the cutting board - I'd cover it with fancy cheeses. :)

Andrea Thompson

Smitten kitten cookbook! Although I also adore the little wooden apple timer


LOVE all your picks! Especially the cookie stamp! I may need to go shopping...


Mmmm--- pretty easy -- the Smitten Kitchen cookbook! Thanks for the chance to win (too bad one of the books isn't the Smitten Kitchen!)


I'd have to pick that large farmhouse cutting board. I absolutely love that
Thank you for this opportunity


I love the large farmhouse cutting board, and the Text Bread Bowl. Thanks for the chance


Definitely Barefoot Contessa Foolproof Cookbook! I love Ina!


My Berlin Kitchen sounds interesting! Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway.


Homemade cookie stamp, great list!


My first time on your blog and what a great first experience! The cookie stamp is too cute - I love it! Also, I agree with you about Ina's books; I am a huge fan too and this book is actually the only item on my Christmas list. Although this cookie stamp has officially been added...

The cookie stamp. Love it

I love the big black book of recipes. It sure beets my throw-together, notebook.
