Picky Palate Givaway!

Hi Everyone, out of appreciation for everyone’s great comments and emails I’m excited to have my very first Picky Palate Givaway! I’m no Oprah, but I’m giving away 3 separate prizes, here’s what you do…

Since, I have a terrible sweet tooth, I thought it’d be fun to hear what everyone else’s “sweetest” weakness is. Maybe I won’t feel so bad about mine! So, post a comment (one comment per person) with your favorite treat that you just can’t resist. Make sure your email is there so I can contact you if you are chosen as a winner.

Hurry, you’ve got until Monday the 23rd at midnight, then I’ll randomly pick 3 winners and post the outcome Tuesday morning. Can’t wait to hear about all your favorite indulgences!

I’ll go first……I can never resist a good Dark Dark Chocolate bar or the gooey pizza cookie with lots of vanilla bean ice cream. Good Luck Everyone!Prize #1

These are great little bakers. I love them for mac and cheese, roasting potatoes/veggis, you name it, they are awesome!

    Brownies with ice cream . . . Yuummm. Or chocolate chip ice cream. . . The mixture of chocolate with vanilla ice cream. Could live off the stuff.

    Megan says:

    where to begin . . . I LOVE oatmeal cookie dough – salmonella and all. And mint chocolate chip ice cream, although I’m picky about the types of chocolate chips used (don’t like them to be waxy) and the ice cream shouldn’t be too minty. Oh, and peanut butter cookies with reeces cups in the middle. okay, I guess I’ll stop here.

    Lucy says:

    I can’t resist homemade chocolate chip cookies or “fresh” chocolate chip ice cream. (by fresh I mean a new, unopened carton–not that I eat the whole thing! ) I’ve tried several of your recipes and they’ve all been great!I drool over your peanut butter recipes but one of my kids has a peanut allergy so I can’t make any of them. So instead I try to inhale your great pictures!!

    Twin Happiness says:

    Guilty Pleasure/Indulgence? Hands down, no hesitation: a 2 inch by 2inch by 1 inch fudge brownie. Not too warm and absolutely no crusts, nuts, or frosting. Oh, be still me heart…AND stomach! =) Count me in!

  8. 58
    Matt and Amanda says:

    My biggest sweet weakness is definitely brownies in ice cream. . .it all started at Cold Stone, and now Dreyers/Breyers/store brands are all putting brownies in ice cream! Make it stop!

    Katie says:

    Brownies or chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven. They’re so warm and melty!

    Phill & Allie says:

    I love this! I think before I even had teeth as a baby, I had a sweet tooth. Sad, I know! Anything with sugar I LOVE! Ice cream, smoothies, and slushies are probably my fav. Especially now in the hot hot sun. But if it’s sweet, I will eat it until I am sick πŸ™ Talk about no control! Email is

    Derick & Becky says:

    Gotta be plain old rice crispy treats but made with Albertsons mini marshmellows! Don’t know why, but those make or break them! My latest obsession is the Oreo Truffles from Bakerella! email-

    My favorite ‘splurge’ treat is a pazookie… (is that the same as your gooey cookie with vanilla bean icecream???)!!

    Blair says:

    I love all sweets. I am partial to well made dark chocolate. I loved baked apples with cinnamon (red hots too?)… I think breakfast and dessert are interchangeable.

  19. 69

  22. 72
    Chelli says:

    It all depends on my mood at the moment….right now I love the rainbow chip canned frosting on top of graham crackers…but I can never say no to gooey brownies! Yum!

  28. 78
    Christina RDH says:

    Thanks Jen!
    My favorite treat is a buttery brown sugary hot apple crisp with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Another fave is Tirimusu(spelling?) I love to eat it any time I can (spare a few thousand calories, that is).

    Jade says:

    White Chocolate Moose Shiver with Heath from TCBY. Oh my gosh I could eat it everyday of the year and still never tire. I dream about it at night.

    Law's says:

    Umm thats hard I pretty much go for anything with sugar in it.

    the4moyers says:

    I’m a subscriber to your blog, only just now “de-lurking” to comment. I have to say my favorite sweet treat is a Starbucks Grande Mocha Frappaccino. I honestly could have one everyday and not get tired of them. I am always a little sad when I finish one. Does that mean I’m addicted? :O) Great giveaways!! Thanks so much for offering them!

    flutter says:

    nothing in life makes me happier than nutella and strawberries in a crepe. Yum.

  33. 83
    Sara says:

    Mmmm, my biggest sweet weakness at the moment would have to be Ici ice cream, a local ice cream shop near where I live in Berkeley, CA. No matter how full I am from dinner, there’s always room. πŸ™‚

  34. 84
    Janssen says:

    Frozen junior mints or strawberry ice cream. Or basically any ice cream. YUM!

  35. 85
    Diane says:

    Mmm! How much fun is this? I have been following your blog for about 3 weeks and you’ve inspired me to try new things. And it has been fun! My current (it changes you know)indulgence is to take a square of really dark chocolate and use that to scoop some peanut butter right out of the jar. Quick, easy, no dishes! Yummy. Thanks for the fun try.

  36. 86
    Jenny J. says:

    Warm brownies, anything with peanut butter and chocolate. Your blog is so great. My family has loved everything that I’ve tried from it.

  37. 87
    Chelsea says:

    Growing up my dad always took his mom (our grandma) and us out to eat at Hometown Buffet….yowser. The one thing I remember scarfing every single time was their chocolate cobbler. It made all those trips to that awful Buffet bearable.

    So I have not had that chocolate cobbler since my Grandma passed. Then lo and behold, I was recipe searching and came across A beautiful picture of chocolate cobbler staring RIGHT AT ME! I can’t wait to make it. Check out the website, it truly looks heavenly! and it can only surpass the buffet version, right!?

  38. 88
    Abbey says:

    Um, how about white chocolate popcorn with almonds. Soooo addicting!

  39. 89
    Lily says:

    A nice fat slice of cheesecake when I really want to indulge, and when I want something sweet but a little lighter…hazelnut chocolate gelato!

    Lorie says:

    I have always ALWAYS had a weakness for hot fudge sundaes. Hot fudge and Whipped Cream is about the best combination in the world.

    Now I have a SERIOUS addiction to ganache! (again, chocolate and cream…you really cannot go wrong). I drizzle it on German Pancakes, I frost brownies with it…I eat it out of a bowl! The possibilities are limitless!!

  41. 91
    Rhiannon says:

    Ooh. Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Yogurt. YUM.

  42. 92
    Kim A says:

    Wow, are you kidding that I’m comment,or should I say ENTRY number 75! Can family members be eligible you little snitch! My guilty pleasure lately has been your dang peanut butter chocolate cream cheese oreo brownies…thanks alot!!

  43. 93
    Bakers says:

    NUTELLA!! On bagels, on strawberries, you name it. My other necessary evil is smores!!You can even do them in your microwave, i have been eating way too much of these lately!!

  44. 94
    Gina Lee says:

    What a fun idea Jenny! Right now, it’s your banana peanut butter cookies. I can eat 10 of them and not even realize it!
    My husband is on a business trip right now. I sent him a care package and threw a few of them in there for him. The day he received the package, I received a text from him saying “Send More Cookies”.
    I really do love all the recipes I’ve tried of yours! You really have a talent for creating the perfect recipe! Thanks for sharing.
    Oh, and I also LOVE homemade caramel corn, Dove milk chocolate, and Stephen’s Gourmet Candy Cane Hot Cocoa.
    Gina –

    linda says:

    Cupcakes are my favorite but I’m thinking your peanut butter cup cheesecake bars are my new weakness!

  46. 96
    heidikins says:

    I’m a sucker for batter of any kind, brownie, cake, even cookie dough. I’ll “make” a sugary dessert, lick the bowl clean, and then give away the actual dessert. Mmmmm, I just love all that uncooked goodness!


  47. 97
    Keepin' up with the Jones' says:

    if anything is made with the combination of chocolate and peanut butter,I’m there…not matter what else is in it!
