Today I’ve got a huge TREAT for you!
It’s Bakin’ Friends reveal day!
And as you know with Bakin’ Friends, our mission is to bake something yummy using the monthly secret ingredient and then we ship them off to another Bakin’ Friends participant. So fun!!!
So, with it being October, this month’s secret ingredient HAD TO BE pumpkin, duh.
And let me just say I was so excited to get my package in the mail from Maegan, who blogs over at Healthy Happy Nourished. Who let me just say is a girl I’d love to have living next door to me. Her blog is so quirky and funny that I know we’d hit it off immediately and become cookie eating BFFs.
When I opened up her box I first saw the cutest puppy for Baby Conner! LOVE!! Maegan said she was trying to find a poochie that looked like Baxter. SO sweet!!
Then underneath the little Baxter clone was a tupperware full of Pumpkin Cookies.
I about died! Me. Cookie. Pumpkin. Equals a whole lotta trouble.
Of course the second I opened the tupperware I shoved a whole cookie in my mouth and then maybe another one. But I totally stopped at two cookies…oh man I feel like Pinocchio. They were just so good and super moist. Topped with creamy, sweet brown butter icing. Irresistible.
I’ve even started crumbling them up and putting on top of my oatmeal in the morning…so smart!!
If you’d like to start receiving some yummy treats in the mail, then you need to sign up for Bakin’ Friends!
Bakin’ Friends is all about connecting bakers, bloggers, foodies, and people who just like sweets! We’re in the business of baking and making friends!
Each month we will be baking goodies, with a secret ingredient, to send out to one another. I’ll let you know at the beginning of the month what secret ingredient we’re using. It might be chocolate, it might be maple syrup, it may be bacon, whatever it is though you’ll be required to use it (unless there’s an allergy to the ingredient) in your baked goody.
On the 6th of each month you will be paired up with a Bakin’ Friend. You’ll contact your newly appointed Bakin’ Friend to see if they have any allergies or dietary restrictions and you’ll also get their mailing address. Then you’ll bake your goody and have it in the mail and on its way to your new Bakin’ Friend by the 16th of each month. You’ll of course want to include the recipe for your baked goody so that your new friend can recreate the yummies at home! How cute would it be if we all did our recipes on vintage recipe cards, just sayin’!
Then, on the last day of the month we’ll post about who our new Bakin’ Friend is, what they baked, and how they used the secret ingredient. (This group right now is only open to US and Canadian residents. US residents will be paired with US residents, and Canadian residents with Canadian residents)
Are you ready to make some new friends? Then send an email to stephsbitebybite(at)gmail(dot)com with Bakin’ Friends in the subject. Emails MUST be received before the 2nd of each month so that I have time to get all the match ups done. Please make sure to include your full name, your email address, your blog name and URL (if applicable), and whether you live in the US or Canada.
