Sweet Valentine's Surpise



  Afternoon Sweet Friends,

So what's going on in your
world today??  Something
good or something sweet,
hope so......

I wasn't really gonna post today,
but then.............My World got
Sweeter than Sweet!

I got this in the mail...............


And what do we have here!!

I was a winner!!

In a giveaway last week.....
from
 Sue over @ I need Mom.





 Saa- weet!  
A nice cookbook full of goodies to
 make.................for family and friends.




Pretty White bow!
The Box even has our initial on it......




But the initials not ours, it is for Tate's Bake Shop
in south Hampton, New York.



UMMM,   Bake shop you say.......

then let's see what is inside.........





Oh My and Yum o Yum!
My favorite cookie..........chocolate chip




Here they are on a plate just before
hubby and I dove in.......
They came at the perfect time.....just
 as we were finishing our lunch.

and boy,  was he lucky he worked at
home today!  lol




Here they are next to her cook book.  Look just 
as yummy, and they have the aroma of freshed
 baked cookies when you open the cellophane,
and they taste just as good as they smell, 
 they  really are so delicious..............I had to
beat myself off not to eat more...........
 She adds a touch of caramel to them,  and
 they are light and crispy................
Just the way I love them.

I can tell you if you buy something from Tate's
bakery,  I dare say,  I don't think you would be
disappointed in any way.........


Thank You Sue, for offering this wonderful
giveaway,  just in time for Valentine's Day.
I am loving it................
and truly enjoying and appreciating it very
much......................

You should go over and visit Sue's blog if
you have never met her before,  she is a
lovely lady, full of great information that
 she passes on to us, and lovely tablescapes 
and vignettes that she does as well.


 also a Big Thank You to
Tate's Bakery and owner,Kathleen King.
Love your book and your wonderful cookies.

I can just smell them from your description! Crispy is how I like my cookies too! Crispy and crunchy!

That's what I used to do with brownies mixes! I would pour out the batter on a cooky sheet and let it spread out thin. After they baked, I used cooky cutters to make cookies out of the sheet of brownies. How delicious they are, especially if you have walnuts in the mix!

Yummy to your tummy!
Love you all, Susan
