  1. Thanks for letting me know about the yarn conest last month, I'm thrilled to have won. I can't enter this one because I'm in the US, but I'll make sure I check out the November contest.

  2. an here i was getting excited over chai and cookies....i could visit canada and enter...claim temporary residency right? smiles...

  3. Geraldine, You have come up with such nice prizes for your give-away contests.
    I think these beverages sound amazing, and a good substitute for coffee now and then.
    I always loved any cookies my Mom baked when I was a child. Two of my favourites were a chocolate/white pinwheel cookie, and the other hermits with raisins, and walnuts. I never actually made these myself. My favourite to bake was Butter Buds, with a jam center. They were easy, economical, and my recipe made 60 cookies. :)

  4. I can't enter (for obvious reasons-family ties) but what great prizes to be won. My favorite cookie is homemade peanut butter.

  5. I love the traditional Shortbread cookies, and sometimes I like to mix them up and substitute some peanut butter for the butter.

  6. Hi Christy, I hope you enjoy all your prizes. Congrats!

    Hi Brian, LOL It's the kind of prize pkg.'d like to win too. ;<)

    Hi Brenda, If you haven't tried Caf-Lib already, I think you'd love it. I actually prefer the Caf-Lib Organic to coffee and I love coffee! Those cookies sound good.

    Hi Joe, Too bad that last peanut butter cookie is gone eh? ;<) I'll make some more soon, I love them too.

    Hi Debbie, What a great idea, re: the shortbread.

    My fav cookie is a toss-up between chocolate chip and really good gingersnaps. Yummm...I'd like one of each, right now!

    Good luck everyone, G :<)

  7. Hi Geraldine, this is a great website and one I wish I had come across a while ago. I have to agree wish Joseph and Debbie, almost any homemade cookie is better than store bought ones. I am diabetic and tend to do all my own baking to satisfy my sweet tooth. Oatmeal, raisin, nut and seed cookies :) Substituting banana or apple sauce for the sugar.

    Good luck to everyone.


  8. This sounds like a delicious giveaway! Perfect for the winter weather that is on it's way! Thanks!

  9. My all time favourite cookie was my grandmother's shortbread

  11. I love oatmeal cookies. Anything oatmeal. Yummy.

  12. Hi Corinne, Thanks for your kind words. I would have to agree for the most part re: homemade vs commercial cookies. but I'm noting a real improvement in this regard from a lot of companies too. No trans fats, more wholesome ingredients, more of the "pricey" ingredients a lot of store-bought brands now. ID Foods has some excellent choices for cookies that are definitely above par! ;<)

    Hi Jennifer, Your fav cookie Jennifer? Part of the entry please.

    Hi Annie, Yumm...can't beat cookies that grandma made, nice!
