Sometimes I'm Lucky


And I win stuff. I got lucky before and won some delicious jam.

Most recently I won a cookbook! Lori, from the wonderful blog The Recipe Girl, was contacted by the nice people at Rancho La Puerta Spa, who offered to give away their cookbook, Cooking with the Seasons, to one of her readers.

I remember reading Lori's post and thinking, "I really want that cookbook. This is exactly the kind of food that I want to eat."

When I found out that I won, I was so excited! It's the best feeling waiting to get something delivered. When I opened the box, there was a nice handwritten note from Aida congratulating me.

Thank you Aida, Rancho La Puerta, and Lori for the wonderful cookbook! I really appreciate it.

After looking through the cookbook, I baked some cookies right away. I had planned to show you a picture and give the recipe, but I just now realized that I didn't take one. G and I ate those cookies so fast, there was no time for photography. I guess I'll just have to make them again. Lucky me!

it's going to be hard for me to concentrate on posts when I keep getting distracted by those cupcakes at the top of the page. I'll power through but I'm just sayin' :-)

Congrats! It's fun to win. Now a spa vacation would have been nice! ;-) But, the cookbook sounds great, too.

I was very excited when I won a box of exquisite chocolates on Valentine's Day this year. :-)
