One of the distinct pleasures I have is blogging for various causes and organizations around the Nashville area. So at the end of this day, when I realize another week is speeding by without me blogging for NanceSense, I’ve turned up the Neville Brothers “Brother John/Iko, Iko” and doing a little blogging for the love it.
So here’s what’s on my mind…Shut Up! The Southern Living Showcase Home is giving away KitchenAid’s newly released of the 7-qt stand mixer to the Ultimate Southern Living Cookie winning entry. Wow, the two things I love best in this world are merging with the year’s premiere home tour. I love baking, love cookies better than ice cream and love that Castle Homes, the host and builder of the Southern Living Showcase Home, is having this contest. Here are the details so get out your bestest cookie recipe and wow us all. I don’t get to enter, but, by goodness, I will be whipping up my aunt-in-law’s molasses cookie and you better send us something mouth watering cause I get to help decide our contenders!
