Sweet Melissa Sundays

Archive for July 2009

Hey everyone.  We’ve had some changes in our membership.  We’ve had a few people drop out and few people join us.  I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to our newest members.  Some have been along for the ride for a few weeks now, so not terribly new, but newer.   You’ll notice that I plugged our new members into the places of the people they replaced as opossed to reordering the whole baking page.  I hope that is OK with everyone, not exactly first come first served, but I didn’t want to mess people up with constantly changing their host dates and thought this was a good way to get new members involved and on the map right away.  If you don’t agree with this you can let me know and I can try to swap dates around.  Hopefully everyone will be cool with it.

So here are our newish members, please stop by and say hi.

  1. Joy of Hot Oven, Warm Heart
  2. June of Sweet TheraPie
  3. JoVonn of The Givens Chronicles 
  4. Candace of Candy Girl
  5. Stephanie of My Teacher’s Treats
  6. Nicole of Sweet Tooth
  7. Cynthia of Bakingtherapist’s Blog

And, to say welcome to our new members and to thank the veteran members, I am doing another giveaway.  Five (5) members will win 12 customized baking stickers from Littlebeane Boutique.   To enter, just leave a comment here identifying the baking cookbook that is #1 on your wish list right now or your #1 favorite must have baking book (hard to do I know).  Contest will end at 11:59 p.m. this Sunday, August 2, 2009. 


So, I haven’t heard back from Laurel of Bake me More yet on her selection, and Stephanie of Ice Cream Before Dinner agreed to switch weeks so you all would know what was on the menu for Sunday as soon as possible.  Thanks Stephanie.  Hope that works for everyone and sorry about the delay.

A P&Q on time – miracles do happen.  Have fun with this one – will be fun to see how every chooses to use the preserves.

Hi its Karen from karenscookiescakes&more — filling in for Lorelei while she’s travelling.

Sorry this is late.

Drum roll please …..  winner of the cocoa powder is Melissa from Lulu the Baker.    Melissa, I will send you the cocoa powder as soon as a return from vacation on the 13th.  I am on the road right now.

Yes, a #1 comment won – how often does that happen.

Thanks to all who participated, I loved learning about your favorite recipes and can’t wait to try them.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
