A King Arthur Giveaway!


February 19th marked 3 years of blogging for me, and to celebrate I'm teaming up with the wonderful folks at King Arthur Flour for a giveaway. I'm so excited for each of you who have a chance to win!

As you all know, I love to cook, and especially to bake. Several months ago I checked the King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion out of the library, and started trying recipes. Everything I've tried so far has been very good. I was thrilled when the King Arthur folks told me that they would help me by donating not only the Baker's Companion, but also a selection of back issues from The Baking Sheet.

All you have to do to enter to win is leave a comment telling me what your favorite baked good is. It's that easy. Everyone is welcome to enter, even international readers! Please make sure you leave a valid email address or link to a blog so that I may contact you if you are the winner.

I'll leave comments open until Wednesday, March 3rd at 11 PM, Eastern time. The winner will be announced on Thursday, the 4th of March.

cinnamon buns, definitely.

Luci said...

No question about it ~ cinnamon rolls!

dari said...

My favorite would have to be Tiramisu.

Public Artist said...

If I'm going sweet, probably chocolate cake..but over all its got to be my mom's homemade bread. Mine just isn't as good!

Jessi said...

My favorite would have to be old-fashioned buttermilk biscuits!

Beck said...

Oh Tracy! What a wonderful giveaway - I'd be thrilled to win that!
I've been doing mainly gluten-free baking lately, so nothing is really my favorite, so much. I made a good batch of blueberry-teff muffins this week, so that's what stands out for me right now.

Lady Laura said...

I'd be thrilled to win your give-away as I'm really just getting into baking. My favorite baked good isn't all that exotic-it's brownies. I've never met a brownie that I didn't like! The most wonderful thing about them is that variations are almost unlimited.
Blessings, Laura

~Ginger said...

Wow, so cool Tracy!!!

I LOVE brownies and if there's nuts in them it's even better!

congrats on your blogging anniversary!

♥ Stevi said...

I am having a love/hate thing with pound cake lately...Love it love it...hate that for something so simple that it can be so hard to make sometimes! Anyone have a foolproof recipe?

Carol said...

Sour Cream pound cake is my favorite!

Momma Roar said...

I had never used their flour until I was at a Pampered Chef party and the consultant told us about it. Prior, I always bought store brand, but now I use KA's all the time!!

Cookies would be my favorite baked item - any kind of cookie!! :)

Congrats on 3 years of blogging!

Terri said...

Great idea, Tracy! Thank you. My favorite would have to be any kind of artesian bread.

Simply Tiffany said...

Oh! I've been in love with King Arthur for so many years! :) That just sounds really weird now that I'm soon to be married.... ;)

Let me see....my favorite baked good? There are so many to choose from, so I'll go with my current favorite: Flourless Chocolate Cake.

What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for letting me know!

Mrs.Rabe said...

Just one? Well, I guess my very, very favorite would be our homemade brownies!

ashleyb1182 said...

Just one favorite baked good? I'd have to say chocolate chip cookies. No, wait, cupcakes. No, brownies. Definitely brownies. No, no, no...banana nut bread. Yes, that's it. YUM! :o)

Jenny said...

I love making homemade bread for my family.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Nanci said...

I use King Arthurs Whole Wheat White Flour all the time (it's a mild-flavored winter wheat) and I love to make 100% Whole Wheat Honey Bread from it.

Lindy said...

Muffins! Any kind of muffin, but if it has chocolate... all the better!

Browniesmoke said...

French Breakfast Puffs from the Better Homes Cookbook. However, we call them "Sugar Muffins" in our house! Everyone is happy when sugar muffins show up!

willowcaroline said...

There is a no knead yeast bread I learned to make as a girl scout from my best friends mother. It makes a lovely sandwich loaf, but somewhere along the way I started buttering and salting the crust as it baked. It is such wonderful scrumptious, hot out of the oven bread.. and my boys can make it easily when we get a craving for it. If I had to choose, this would probably be the number one fave, although, almost any baked good is a great thing.

THE Princess Bombshell* said...

cookies. plain and simple. cookies.

:-)

Katie @ goodLife {eats} said...

I love muffins!

Margaret said...

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

Jodi said...

Tracy ~ Congratulations on hitting the 3 year mark! Sometimes it's hard to believe we've all been blogging for so long.

You're killing me with this impossible question - lol. I'm going to go with French bread. (argh - I can't believe I'm not picking something chocolate!)

Danielle said...

Any kind of bread will due for me...muffins, bread, coffee cake. My new favorite... scones!

Jordin said...

Mine would definitely be "Congo Squares." I'm sure there are other names for them, but they're like a blondie with chocolate chips and pecans in them!

Happy blogaversary! :) Thanks for the contest!

Tully Family said...

It is hard to choose one thing but I do enjoy baking bread. Thanks for doing the giveaway! I enjoy your blogs- your photos are beautiful!!!

Jennifer said...

I would have to say that I really love homemade bread, but there are so many great baked goods....hard to choose :)

Nic (NotPerfect) said...

Chocolate chip cookies followed closely by cinnamon rolls.

Jessica said...

You can't go wrong with chocolate-chip cookies or whole-wheat bread!

KBMac said...

I love almond pound cake! :o)
~Kathy

Mel said...

My favorite cookies are called "yo-yos". They are like melting moments but contain custard powder instead of plain cornstarch. Even Nathan enjoys them, and he's usually only 'into' choc-chip cookies.

Gayla said...

I think that Hello Dollies is one although it hardly counts. Then I just love homemade bread od ANY kind. King Arthur is my favorite catalog. It is a wonderful company! Thanks for the giveAway. I feel lucky!

Dede said...

I'd have to say French Bread. (What a fun thing to do in honor of your blogging ~ Happy Anniversary :)

Mary said...

Mine would have to be brownies! Followed closely by just about any kind of cookies!

Everblest said...

Happy anniversary! I love herb cheese bread. I think I need to make some today.

Marilene said...

This question is so hard to answer!
But right now I'm in a cinnamon-roll-phase, so that's my favorite one for now.

AWESOME with sausage gravy. AWESOME DAWESOME with honey and butter.

Shelly said...

This is going to sound so simple, but I LOVE Chocolate Chip cookies! Baked or unbaked, I can't decide which is my favorite! :)

Tracy said...

A batch of gluten free brownies currently sings to me from my pantry.

But really, it is a croissant warmed with raspberry jam that warms my heart as well as my belly. I don't have them very often because they're just so unhealthy, but that is definitely the treat I long for.

Anna said...

I have many favorites, but I really love home made whole wheat bread fresh from the oven with butter:-)

Bethany said...

My favorite baked good is Banana Bread

Sarah said...

One of my favorite cakes is Chocolate Mousse Torte with raspberry filling. It is rich, yet light at the same time. So delicious! Thanks for the chance to win. Sarah in New Zealand

Wendy said...

My Grandmas peach pie...her crust was unforgettable. *sigh*

Karen said...

Just ONE? LOL...

Pecan Pie. Made with dark corn syrup and brown sugar. And maple flavoring, not vanilla...

And I loooove cookbooks. Especially ones about baking! :-)

I drool every time I get a new King Arthur catalog! My favorite baked good would have to be a good ol' fashioned Texas sheet cake.

Billie said...

pumpkin bread, banana bread, zucchini bread... What a great idea!

rebecca said...

Hi Tracy,
I really like an old time food called "Poppy Seed Rolls." They bring back fond memories of my childhood and are along the lines of your Hungarian rolls. These are such a special treat during the Christmas season and take me back to my childhood over and over again.

Chocolate chip cookies. I thought I perfected my recipe then my 12 years old topped me.

Umm...Yes. That would be everything. I gues if I absolutely have to say, it would be yellow cake with chocolate icing. or cookies. or maybe Eclairs...

Your blog has been such a blessing to me over the last few years. You may never know the days I was feeling down or needed encouragement in homemaking, and read one of your posts that gave me that much needed "lift" and encouraging Word to carry me thru my day. Thank you!

My favorite baked good is fresh bread. Any kind. Just as long as it's filled with carbs and it's aroma fills the house :o)
