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

2 All Clad Oval Bakers

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

Prize #2

    Two big soft ginger cookies with cream cheese frosting in the middle – a ginger oreo! If it’s really hot, I have to have Ben & Jerry’s Pistachio Pistachio ice cream. Yum!

    Brooke says:

    I can not resisist a chocolate chip cookie. If I could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be chocolate chip cookies. The only thing better? Chocolate chip cookie DOUGH 🙂

    Mom24 says:

    Warm chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven ALWAYS call my name. Creme Brulee would be the fru-fru dessert that gets me.

    I can’t resist a simple piece of dark chocolate. YUM!

    The Black Hole says:

    Oh this is fun!!! I have so many favorite guilty pleasures, so it’s really difficult for me to choose just one… but, I have never been able to resist cheesecake. Yum.

    Kelsey says:

    Hi I found your blog a while back and love looking at your yummy food. I’ve gotta try some of your recipes. I can’t pass up a rice crispy treat! I guess I just love the sweet gooeyness!

  11. 111
    Aimee says:

    Somehow, I stumbled upon your blog, and I am so glad I did. Your food ideas are incredible! Those Banana Peanut Butter Cup Cookies – Yum!! But, truth be told, I can never pass up a nice slice of pumpkin pie with homemade whip cream on top!

  12. 112
    Susan says:

    what an awesome giveaway! i’d have to say my guilty pleasures are french fries and brownies, not necessarily at the same time. 😉 something salty and something sweet.

  13. 113
    Heather says:

    Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Icecream. Yummmmmmm!

  14. 114
    KarenDV says:

    I love combinations of sweet and salty, but my sweet-only downfall is Edy’s mint chip ice cream with Oreos chunks.

    Daily Jot & Tittle says:

    I can never gat enough of campfire smores..and when i’m not in the mountains the microwave works just fine!

    Brooke says:

    I wish this treat was something I could make, but I heart Sour Patch Kids. It’s how people at work bribe me to do a favor for them — I’ll never say no.

    Jori says:

    I have tried out several of your recipes. They are delish! You are one talented mama!:) Ummm my favorite treat is The cookie cookie sundae at ben & jerrys.

    Shelby says:

    I have many, many weaknesses, but #1 would have to be a crispy and chewy home made chocolate chip cookie. Or 10.

  19. 119
    Alissa says:

    my favorite is easily skittles. like little sugar bombs exploding in your mouth…

    but if i’m being perfectly honest, i can NEVER resist anything sweet… sweet tooth is an understatement.

  20. 120
    RobynE says:

    Oreos and Rice Krispy treats. I’m always like “just one more, can’t hurt. Well, maybe another one. Hmm, if I have one more I can even that out…”

    Toad says:

    My guilty pleasures fluctuate from season to season to season but almost always include choclate in some form or another. Lately I have been enjoying fresh ontario stamberries with lightly sweetened vanilla whipped cream accompanied by a shot of espresso. Yum!

    I love recipe blogs. Recently on Steph’s Kitchen I found Twisted Peanut Butter Cups. That has not helped the diet at all- what a fabulous guilty pleasure! This weekend I’ll be trying your Peanut Butter Whopper Cookies for my husband who LOVES Whoppers. Thanks for the great idea!

    Dottie K. says:

    Wow I enjoy your blog and looking at all the recipes. My guilty pleasure would be a chocolate. Anything chocolate! Thanks for a chance at some awesome giveaways. 🙂

    Barbara Bakes says:

    Wow Jenny look how many people love your blog! A Schmidt’s chocolate eclair – they’re heavenly.

    Melissa Howard says:

    I haven’t meet a sweet I didn’t like… but I definitely can’t resist anything with the peanut butter, honey, banana and chocolate combined. As a mom of 3 under 4 years old, sometimes all I have time for is a spoon of peanut butter, with a chunk of banana, drizzled with honey and toped with those yummy Ghirardelli chips!!

  26. 126
    Emily says:

    Ice cream. I always have to have some in my house, even. I eat a pretty healthy diet all the time, but I regularly destroy it with ice cream.

  27. 127
    Monica says:

    hum…There are so many to choose from! Today my sweet tooth is craving cinnamon rolls. Tomorrow may be something different but I can NEVER turn down something homemade with chocolate in it!

  28. 128
    Sarah says:

    I would probably classify myself more in the salty than sweet loving category, but there is one exception. My favorite restaurant in SC is Saltus. They had a flourless chocolate cake that I swear I dreamt about, it was that good. With a little fresh whipped cream, I always had room for that dessert. Unfortunately they aren’t serving that anymore and I am desperately trying to find a replacement! 🙁

    I would have to say werthers candies I always carry them on me..and tootsie them!! Love you blog, keep up the good work..looking forward to more yummy recipes from you.

    Carlee Hoopes says:

    I can’t choose just one! I’m afraid I just can’t pass up ice cream, cotton candy, or chocolate silk pie. I’m pretty much obsessed with these 3 things!

    Mo says:

    Oh, I know right off the bat –

    PARADISE BAKERY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES – warm and gooey, when they are still soft. I stop there everyday on my way home. Huge weakness…

  32. 132
    The Queen of Quite a Lot says:

    I’m really not a picky sweet tooth person–I like it all. But my biggest weakness by far is ice cream. I love it in the morning. I love it in the afternoon. I love it at night. I like it plain or with a ton of stuff mixed in. I like it just in a bowl or made into a sundae. If I’m doing a quickie, I love it best on a sugar cone. We always have several ice cream choices in the house. I prefer the rich Oberweis ice cream or Haagen Dazs or Ben and Jerry’s, but won’t turn down Edy’s or Breyers. In fact when I was pregnant with my son, I got addicted to a Breyer’s flavor and would eat that several times a day because it was one of the few things I could keep down.

  33. 133
    Jen says:

    I love Peach Cobbler, and S’mores! They are by far my favorite. I also like brownies. Oh and my email address is
    Fun givaway!

  34. 134
    Liz says:

    I can’t go a day without something chocolate/peanut butter…even if it’s just the M&Ms. I now am also addicted to your Levain Choc. Chip Cookies.
    Oh, I could go on forever on the “sweet subject”!

  35. 135
    Jennifer says:

    I love a good fudgy brownie, and I’m addicted to hot tamales. Your blog is great, I love to look at your recipes.

    Kristy says:

    Rice krispy treats. Can’t leave them alone!

  37. 137
    LeAnne says:

    I haven’t commented in forever…I am still a fan of many of your recipes.

    My favorite sweet indulgence has to be a warm gooey chocolate brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce. That sounds so good right now…do I have a brownie mix?!?

    Crazy Lady says:

    Ice cream you scream, we all scream for ice cream. But even more for chocolate gelato and pinkberry 🙂

    Count me in!

    Tina says:

    I love love brownie ice cream. Vanilla ice cream with swirls of chocolate and chucks of chewy brownie. So good!

    Alison says:

    I love your blog too. Thank you for all the great recipes! My favorite sweet is anything peanut-butter and chocolate. Mmmmm!

    Lauren says:

    Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies right out of the oven and always cookie dough ice cream.

  42. 142
    Jennifer says:

    My guilty pleasure would have to be Peanut Butter Blossoms (brownies baked in a muffin tin and topped with a Reece’s peanut butter cup!

  43. 143
    Kelly says:

    Oh wow. I don’t know if I can pick just one sweet guilty pleasure. haha

    – soft, warm chocolate chip cookies
    – chocolate cake with a fudge layer and chocolate icing
    – homemade choc chip cookie dough ice cream
    – cake batter ice cream

    ahhh!! the list goes on and on!

    Jolene says:

    I have a big sweet tooth. But if I had to pick just one things, I would say Ice Cream. I have a bowl every night, unless there is something else sweet to eat.

    Cheryl says:

    Another de-lurker here! My guilty pleasure is chocolate chip cookies , warm from the oven when they’re still gooey and a little underdone. Then here’s what I do with them: take two cookies, turn one downside up and spread with raw cookie dough, then top with the other still warm from the oven cookie, squish together and eat with a big glass of milk…mmmmmm! Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway!

  46. 146
    Brooke says:

    I have a serious sweet tooth – it’s so hard to choose a favorite. But I guess I’d have to say chocolate chip cookies and homemade oreo cookies.

    RecipeGirl says:

    It’s amazing how many people come-a-flocking when you’re giving free stuff away, isn’t it?? Well, I’m a devoted comment giver so I’m not just here for the free stuff 🙂 But since I’m here, I’ll share my favorite indulgences: cheesecake of any kind, brownie-hot butterscotch sundaes, and snickerdoodles. Oh yeah…and red licorice ropes!

  49. 149
    Becky says:

    I love all desserts, but my newest favorite is a frozen key lime pie. I also love homemade oreo cookies, and caramel/nut brownies. I’ve made several of your treats, and I love them all!

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!


  50. 150
    Cheryl says:

    That’s a hard one, but if I had to pick just one it would probably be something chocolate, Hershey’s perfectly chocolate cake, warm chocolate chip cookies, or chocolate brownies with mint chocolate chip ice cream.
