Mother Nature is pulling tricks on us today.

It’s snowing around these parts, blowing and COLD.

I simply refuse to take part!

I’ve decided to take this Baking Blog to PRIVATE!

You’ve got to Hop to it, and leave me a comment on THIS POST, if you wish to be able to visit. 

Please leave me your name and email address,  if you would like to be able to access this site.

I will close my OPEN site on Thursday April 8th,

so you must leave a comment ON THIS POST . . . before then.

I believe that when you go PRIVATE,

you can only invite 100 people . . . so hurry!


I’m having a GIVE-A-WAY

Two names, will be randomly chosen from those who leave a comment,

along with your email, and a link to your blog.

Remember . . . this blog will be private in one week.

All comments, including your name, email and link to your blog need to be on this post.

and now the give-a-way!

this . . .

 or this . . .

When you leave your comment,

please tell me if you would like the Flirty Pink

 or the

 Spring Green Apron.

If you happen to be a guy, I’m sure this Apron isn’t very appealing.

If you are Male, and your name is randomly chosen from the generator, I will send you my favorite Cookbook instead!

Remember…….I Go private in one Week!

Make sure you comment soon,

with your name, email or someway to make Contact, if your name is chosen.

Happy Easter!

Love love love it. 🙂 But, um… I would be lying if I said I didn’t secretly hope I’d get one of those DARLING aprons 🙂 I seriously could use one. I’m absolutely in love with both. I adore both green and pink colors. So if my name is picked, I would love either color 🙂

    As for the apron, I really like the green one but they’re both great. 🙂
    Have a great day!

    did you just want to see how many friends you had or are you seriously making this private??!!! There is no way you could limit this blog to 100 people… so not fair. you have to add me to your list. I have been checking your blog about everyday the past year and a half / two years – basically the beginning. ooooh – and i love the pink apron (green one is super cute too.)ReplyCancel

    Okay, this pretty much sucks . . . because I’m YOUR *****#1 FAN***** AND I’m going to get ACED out of you going private – I’m like comment #250!!!! Oh Crap!!!!

    I LOVE your aprons – soooooo cute. I love them both, BUT, if I had to choose, it would be the pink one!

    Okay, I’d like to petition for clemency and would love to have my NAME moved to the FRONG of the list (special favors for x-neighbors = political pull) ! ! ! ! !

    QUESTION: WHY ARE YOU GOING PRIVATE? You must run these major decisions past your ‘agent’ (that would be me) before you make these life-altering decisions!!!

    Luv, MeReplyCancel

  • Wendy Brown - 04/03/2010 - 12:46 am

    I am not a blogger but I love to look on line and I love to shop on line. I just recently discovered your fantastic site and I absolutely LOVE all you ideas. I have actually been inspired to get off my butt and bake. Everything is GREAT. I see I am probably too late to get in your private link but hope that maybe I will still have a small chance. Your aprons are adorable. Either one would be fine. Do you by chance sell them as well ? Have a few ideas for gifts to my friends. Thanks again for all your ideas

    Why would you want to go private, there are so many good recipes on this blog that a lot of people that are just learning to cook could benefit from your blog, the pictures and recipe instructions are so clear and precise and you give a quick response to people who leave comments on your blog if they need a little help with the recipes.
