You Bake Me Happy Wednesday

So, I love baking.

Really, that's sort of an understatement. 

I'm borderline obsessed. 

I scan and peruse cookbooks like you wouldn't believe.  I'm slowly chipping away at a culinary arts pastry text book.  I.Love.It.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about baking, this blog, my "life path," who I am, who I want to become, what the Lord has in store for me, do I give enough, am I kind enough, do I exude a life that is FULL...full of Christ, full of joy?  Maybe it's because I'm inching towards 30 (which is like the end of life practically SO KIDDING) but I feel like I've been extra reflective as of late.

Anyways, back to baking.

One day I would like to incorporate baking into my my every day life.  I'm not exactly sure what that looks like/will look like but I thought that I would start here.

Start with you.

'Cause I love ya.

So, here's the run down, the D.L., the deets.

The first Wednesday of the month will be "You Bake Me Happy Wednesday".  Where I, yours truly, will bake you something amazing, something delish, something probably totally and completely fattening....bring on the butter, and then I will mail it to you.  FOR FREE.  I love baking, I love giving.  How much better can it get eh?

All you have to do is leave a comment with the treat that you would be overjoyed to have show up on your doorstep.  This month, it's COOKIES!  Bring on the cookies.  Cookie, cookie, cookies.  And if I pick your name (very randomly of course) I will mail you said treat (so you better pick wisely).  Por ejemplo: Say my name is Judith and I left a comment saying that I would love snickerdoodles to show up on my doorstep.  If I choose Judith, then I will mail her snickerdoodles.  Understand?  Bueno.

The little drawing ends Sat at noon!  So comment before then.  Sat evening I'll let ya know who the lucky winner is!


I'm excited!


So, what cookie would YOU want to magically appear on your doorstep???


  1. Something that would travel well....chocolate chip cookie bars? Yes, I would love those :)
    And how cool is this idea??! I love it!

  2. mmmmmm! count me in! ummmmmmmmmm, baker's choice? or is that not allowed? If not let me know and I will come up with something... Kyle doesn't like ginger. That's about the only thing that is a no no. I love Lemon, Chocolate, caramel, chocolate.... chocolate... did I mention chocolate?

  3. Is Ohio too far to mail Peanut Butter Blossom cookies??

  4. Carrie: Baker's choice is totally allowed :). And Nicole: Nope! :)

  5. Ooh, I love peanut butter blossom cookies too. But my favorite are chocolate chip - but really chewy, gooey, LOADED with milk Chocolate chips. :-) Great idea, Anna!

  6. Lemon Kiss Cookies!!!

  7. GINGERDOODLES! Not sure what they are, but they sound amazing!
