What a sweet giveaway - literally! :) Throw my name in the hat. This season, I am in love with all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin whoopies & cookies & cheesecake & bread...and I just found a pumpkin creme brulee recipe I'm dying to try. Will give me a good excuse to break out the torch I got for my wedding. Haven't touched it yet.

Thanks for the giveaway - & your awesome blog.

i have really been diggin casseroles this holiday season. i have been doing menu planning (with inspiration from www.orgjunkie.com) and have found it really fun to make them ahead of time, pop them in the oven and have a WARM, HEARTY, and HEALTHY meal at my fingertips! :)

thank you for this chance. t-shirts are always great conversation starters and just plain comfy!!!

angiemcgovern said...

Cuuuute Shirts! This year I am attempting Christmas Cookies all by myself(eep!) and the Hubs and I are going make cornish hens and baked mac and cheese for Thanksgiving since it will just be the 2-1/2 of us.

ali said...

When I get married, I want a cupcakes for my cake. It is so Marie-Antoinette.

What I am baking for the holiday's is: of course, sugar cookies, little ginger-bread men and girls, and this year I want to try and make my own granola for gifts to co-workers and friends. School has made me very poor, so a home-made Christmas it is for me. :)

Love the shirt!

I'm excited + nervous for Christmas this year because it will be the first one in my 6 years of marriage that we are totally celebrating on our own as our own little family, so all the cooking is up to me. :S :D

Hil said...

oh boy... this is right down my alley! I realize it may not fit over my belly, but hopefully by having one of these cute shirts in 5 months it will encourage me to lose the baby fat. :)

PJpanache said...

Kristi said...

I LOVE cupcakes! So I love this tee!! I will be making Almond Cream Cheese Pound Cake this year! LOVE this cake, so good.

Rachel said...

I'm totally a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl! I like to keep it simple. I am cooking an apple pie for thanksgiving where i will be in UTAH with my family! Yay, I can't wait!

cat said...

Lots and lots and lots of sweet potatoes!! It's the perfect weather for them I think. :0

Dee said...

this shirt is fab!! remember- you know what they say "you are what you eat so eat something sweet" :)
this holiday season i plan to eat lots of holiday sweets.

Missy knits said...

Super cute tee! I am just starting my holiday cooking list, and feeling a bit overwhelmed! I think I will start with some cherry crumb cakes for a bday present for my brother this weekend, and then let the holiday baking begin!!

anna jo said...

cupcake tee-shirts, how fun.

I'm sure I will be making a plethora of pies. and a baby turkey.

stehanie from texas said...

i gotta have that tee!! it is too cute.

thanksgiving will definitely include something from the Julia Child dinner party of this past weekend....maybe the chocolate mousse??

happy turkey day to you!

Katie - My Paisley Apron said...

How fun! Let's see....

On regular days this holiday season, I hope to make lots of soups, and meals in the slow cooker. We all know why those rock in the fall/winter!

And for Christmas cookies, I hope to make spritz, snickerdoodles, peanut butter star cookies, krumkake, and maybe pbernodder if it ever gets cold enough!

Lena said...

Love this one Marta!

I have been a muffin baker like crazycakes this fall because my little bird love love loves them. Eight months and she is cramming the carbs down.

For Christmas gifties this year, I am going to do biscotti. I did some on a whim last year - pregnant and too tired to drop or roll many cookies - I did some biscotti and it was a hit!

hannah :: sherbet blossom said...

darling t's! i love them.

i plan on making some cranberry cookie bars this holiday season. so delish.

vixel said...

Gorgeous shirt!

Being English, we have our turkey at Christmas, so after a giant roast dinner we usually have cakes and baked yumminess for tea! I'll probably be making my chocolate mousse and perhaps some meuringues.

amber of theambershow said...

Oh no! I thought you needed a stretchy tee shirt for SOME OTHER reason! :p This is exciting, too. :)

Lynn said...

Honestly, I haven't had time to plan out my holiday meals yet. I am still trying to use up the last of my CSA veggies, including a Smoked Paprika and Rutabaga Bisque we are having tonight.

I love the hamburger t-shirt!

Elizabeth said...

Darling!
This season: Pretzels dipped in carmel and rolled in nuts and choco chip (and pnut butter chips), yummy bars, sugar cookies, and maybe some chili or something so we don't all slip into a sugar enduced coma.

ellen said...

Cute t-shirts! I'm going to be making bretzelis (Swiss cookies) this Christmas. Everyone loves them!

Anneliese said...

i am really feelin some christmassy fudge. no joke.

ajkliewer@yahoo.com

Sarah N said...

love, as usual, your give away. yay! let's see i made butternut squash risotto last night, oh my yummy. i know for a fact this holiday season my baking will definitely include learning to make houska, a czech braided bread which has been part of my life for-ev-er and my mom learned to make from my dad's dad before he passed away. so now its my turn to ensure the tradition continues. my mom was kind enough to ship one to us to ensure petey can have one on his first thanksgiving but i can't count on her kindness quite as freqently as i'd like this bread.

Thelma said...

All my usual treats are cooking in my kitchen: gingersnaps, sugar cookies, fudge. I love the t-shirt.

Stephanie said...

I'm always responsible for the homemade dinner rolls for every holiday meal, so those will definitely be baking in my oven. I'll probably make a few pies as well, plus all of my favorite Christmas cookies.

NSMOM said...

Lately my baking has been muffins for my boys, bread, and then also our "peach festival" we had for a week after we picked 60 lbs of peaches!! I made every peach dessert imaginable (pie, cobbler, bars, ice cream, etc.)

Thanks, Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

mary elizabeth said...

Hip hip for cupcakes + tees! Two of my favorite things :)

I am pretty sure I'll be making lots of pumpkin chocolate chip bread... I can't get enough of that stuff!!!

maryoveson@gmail.com

Marianne said...

So, so in need of a cute t-shirt! I'm hoping to try some different bread recipes this winter. Probably some from the Deceptively Delicious cookbook with purees so my little two-year-old can get his veggies without knowing it!

tara said...

cute!

i have an 8 month old, so there's been lots of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, etc... cooking in my kitchen :)

Cat said...

I hope to try the Christmas pretzel rods I saw on your blog last december. They would make great hostess gifts! Love the you are what you eat t-shirt!

michelle said...

SO cute! I have a cousin who is a cupcake fanatic -- that would be the perfect gift.

I'm in Paris now, so all my cooking is French. I recently discovered a fabulous yogurt cake...

Laura said...

Awesome giveaway! I looove the cupcake shirt AND the "you are what you eat" shirt. So cute!

Anne. said...

Cupcakes ARE the best, aren't they? This year, for the holidays, my sister and I are planning on taking over the kitchen and I'm absolutely terrified at what the result is going to look and taste like! It'll be a fun adventure, that's for sure. One filled with tons of laughs, new recipes, a big fat mess on the kitchen counter and memories that will surely last a lifetime. I can't wait.

Erin said...

Ooh, j'adore cupcakes! And that t-shirt too. Super cute.

Laura D said...

I am wrestling with the idea of making a ton of sweets and building treat towers for our friends and families as gifts. Said towers would include: truffles, macaroons (because I have been dying to try them), cake dips (maybe apple cake dipped in caramel...), knock-off Cranberry Bliss Bars from Starbucks, almond roca, caramel corn and why not? caramel.

Erin said...

Oops, in my rush I neglected to tell you what's cookin' in my holiday kitchen!

Candy cane bark
Gingerbread men
Shortbread (dipped in chocolate)
Minty hot chocolate
Butter tarts

brandy said...

I'll be busy in the kitchen whipping up the following:

- Peppermint Bark
- Almond Toffee
- The softest sugar cookies on the planet
- Peanut Butter Balls
- Poppyseed Bread with a delicious orange glaze.

Allison said...

Those are adorable! I'm lucky enough to be officially "responsible" for anything in the kitchen this year, so I get to have fun experimenting with an apple oven cake...sort of a twist on apple pie. Hopefully it's delicious!

Chelsea said...

Danielle @ GAP said...

This is my first time trying to win a blog giveaway but... there's always a first for EVERYTHING. :) It sure is a cute tee, nonetheless.

My favorite thing to cook for the holidays (get ready, it's not anything special), but the classic chocolate chip cookie. I love to poke at them while they're baking in the oven.. watching the goo turn into a delicious round helping of delight, haha.

This will be my first Christmas at my first apartment & I am very much looking forward to it.

Thanks for keeping such an awesome blog, Marta. It's a joy to read. :)

How Darling! This cooler weather has me wanting nothing more than steaming pots of soup. I'm not picky... I'll take just about any accompanied with a loaf of crusty bread.

Mary Grace said...

Oh my god!! This is ubergorgeous. I definitely want to win this one badly...will pray very hard!

I made mint pea soup from the Barefoot Contessa the other night, which sounds frankly horrendous, but was actually DELICIOUS (and I dont' even like peas).

Laura said...

ms firefly said...

coolest cupcake tee i've ever seen!
as for the holidays, i'd make something dutch for the husband, as it'd be the closest we can get from home.

Judi A. said...

As usual, my kitchen will be filled with the aroma of baking cookies - lots of cookies of different sizes, shapes, and tastes. Always the old tried and true, and always some first-timers. :-) One year I made 28 different kinds, but this year I don't think I'll be that ambitious. Funny thing about the t-shirt: I have been toying with the idea of including some cupcakes this year, so having that darling shirt would be perfect.

Cassie said...

Amazing giveaway - love all the designs.

I am helping out with various cooking this Christmas including my new favourite Red Velvet Cupcakes to take to my Mums on Dec26th. And I am making a special box of cupcakes for my 86 year old Grandmother as a birthday present on the same day.
