Tate’s Bakeshop–Cookies and Cookbook!

Tate's Bake Shop

Yes, Tate’s Bakeshop has been popping up all over foodie blog land.  Apparently, lots of food blogs were contacted and offered free cookies and a cookbook.  Ahem.  I was not contacted.  I felt alone and adrift.  Do I not need cookies??  Do I not need another cookbook to add to the 164 that currently reside in my bookcase? 

But then, I saw that all of these people were offering giveaways.  So, I entered them.  All of them.  All over the place.  I left witty comments, begging comments, pleading comments.  And guess what??!!  I won.  The lovely Ingrid at 3B’s…Baseball, Baking, and Books, picked my name! 

All is right in food blog land again.

Hmmmm (I was wondering along those same lines too) how nice for you to win. Yes Tates is everywhere, like Merry Christmas wishes this time of year. Merry Christmas Pam, I hope your holidays are great!

Joanne said...

haha congrats! Having those cookies sitting around is both a blessing and a curse. Trust me.

Congratulations on winning one of the cookbooks. I entered everything give-away I saw too. If Ina Garten thinks they're great, they're great in my book too.

Merry Christmas Pam to you and your family. Know you'll have a very special Christmas with a new grand baby.

There's nothing like a great cookie to makes us commenting maniacs. Increased your odds and it paid off! You are, well, one smart cookie ;-)

Merry merry, Pam. That's a great Christmas present to yourself!

food for thought said...

it was like another christmas miracle!

Wow - congratulations on the win! That's awesome and you know, there's no such thing as too many cookbooks.

Pam said...

Yeah! Congrats to you. I love Tate's cookies and the cookbook too.

Marjie said...

Lucky you! Tate's didn't contact me, either, if that's any consolation. And I didn't win any giveaways, either, if that's any consolation. Congrats and enjoy your cookbook!

Carolina said...

Oh yum! Congratulations. Love that packaging. Let alone the inside of the boxes. I'm sure I'd love that too. So happy they are not available over here ;-)

Do we, your loyal readers, not deserve grandbaby photos with a Santa hat or something equally as cute?

Ingrid said...

YAY! I'm so happy you won. But I should clarify that Jalen, one of the twins picked your number. :) His lucky number. :)

Love your photo, too.

Wishing you a blessed & merry Christmas!

Oops--I clicked too soon. Heard this segment yesterday on NPR and wanted to make sure you don't miss out on knowing about a cookbook somewhere.

I am smiling! Great post. As soon as I saw the Tate's cookies, I thought "wow, I have been seeing these treats throughout the blogosphere"- I love the way you described it. Perfect.

btw, I hosted a cat photo for Wordless Wednesday, that I think you will enjoy.

Happy Holidays.

How fun! I entered a giveaway for these at a different blog, but did not win.

Mary at Deep South Dish said...

Sooooo whatcha gonna make? Merry Christmas!!

Lea Ann said...

I thought I was the only blogger that didn't get contacted by Tates. Congrats on the win.

I, too, have been feeling very overlooked by Tate's. Did someone squeal that I'm a Weight Watcher? Do I live too far into the hinterlands? Kudos on winning a giveaway. I must keep on trying.

They taste just as good no matter how you got them. ;-) Glad you won some!
