Lucky Winner

There are a number of added benefits to writing a food blog besides getting to cook and experiment in the kitchen.  One of these benefits is getting exposure to and enjoying the hard work of other dedicated food bloggers.  Early when I started blogging I stumbled upon the wonderful blog of Debby called A Feast for the Eyes.  As I read her blog, I realized I had found a fellow home cook I could really relate to.  Her down to earth recipes, wonderful photos, great tutorials, and delightful writing style had me hooked.
Recently Debby had a giveaway contest for a gift basket from a famous bakery in Southhampton, New York called Tate's Bake Shop.  This is a bakery frequented by the likes of Ina Garten, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rachel Ray.  Recently Consumer Reports listed their chocolate chip cookies as the best of 18 store-bought and fast-food chocolate chip cookies.
Well lucky me!  I won the giveaway and what a lovely package showed up at my door.  In it were two packages of hearty, delicious granola, a very generous coffee cake absolutely loaded with pecans, and a Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook.  I can't wait to try to make some of these famous baked goods in my own home.  Thank you Debby for the opportunity to win such a lovely prize and I look forward always to reading your blog.  And thank you Tate's Bake Shop for your divine baked goods.  Much appreciated!

I'm so glad you won the package. I look forward to see what recipe you bake from the cookbook. Yes, the rewards of food blogging is the wonderful community of invisible friends we meet. I enjoy your photos, stories and posts.
