This One Is For You

filed under: Miscellaneous on October 30, 2009


Why 'i am baker'?

Simply because this blog is an extension of my other blog, 'i am mommy'.

I am mommy. I am wife. I am child of God. And now, I am baker.

Well, at least my blog says I am.

I am totally amateur.

I make lots of mistakes.

I eat lots of mistakes.

But man do I love baking.

To celebrate the launch of my new blog, I would like to share some of my passion with you.

Just leave a comment, and you are automatically entered to win 2 dozen cookies of your choice. Not sure why you would want cookies? Check out my cookie gallery and get some ideas.

Maybe for a birthday? An office Christmas party? Want to impress your MOPS group? Or how about your Mother-in-Law?

Will we ever truly be able to impress our Mother-in-Laws?

Maybe you are just hungry.

Whatever your reason, I've got ya covered.

So, please, take a moment and acquaint yourself with my new home away
from home. I hope that you will be inspired to create your own
delicious treats!

Be sure to check out this post if you like to bake too!

    Amanda, I just love reading your blogs. I often find myself wanting to check my email quick and just laughing and being insired by your posts. Thank you. I sent your links today to all my family/friends and told them when they have a chance to sit down with a cup of joe and be ready for laughter and inspiration. My best friend of thirty years (wow, wonder how many can say that? I’ve known her since I was three!)was over today and we were talking about your blogs, agian more laughter. You have insired us to be better and want to bake more. If I won I would share these with of course my husband and two girls but also with my bf and her little girls, good reason to get together.

    Do more than forgive: forget.
    Do more than dream: work.

    You have talent my dear. I too made cookies with my kids when they were young. Now my son and I make pain du chocolate, croissants and many nights, dinner together. My daughter claims she’s not a cook, but invited over the current boyfriend and before I knew it had him in the kitchen making Chocolate Molten Cakes! Right off her Mom’s blog. So bake and cook with your children it is the one way to stay in touch when they are teenagers. By the way, I’ve already bookmarked your blog and I will be a follower! Thanks!

  • Amanda Rettke says:
