Winners; Mother's Day Memory Cookbook Give Away

Hi friends! Before I announce the winners, I would like to say thank you to all of you who have been reading and stopping by on a daily basis! One of my favorite things about reading other blogs is the way I feel when I arrive on their sites. The familiar layouts and delicious pictures I know are waiting. This is why I keep going back! I feel like the authors have become my friends; like I have known them a long time. I look forward to all the comments you leave for me. I am almost giddy each time I see there is a new comment waiting... so thank you to those of you who leave them for me. I am looking forward to hearing from more of you in the future! If you did not enter this contest, I will have more coming up!

The winners of The Cupcakery Mother's Day Memory Cookbook Give Away were selected from Random.org's list randomizer. The winners are:

Dolce Deluca: I love this! What a great way to honor Mom's and like-Mom's everywhere :) My favorite memory of being in the kitchen with my Mom is they day she taught me how to make Italian sauce... which is my Great-Great-Grandma's recipe from Sicily. There are four generations currently alive: me, my Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma. We all make it a little bit different but its all from the same place. I hope to have a daughter one day so I can teach it to her.

XQueen of CupcakesX: I remember being in the kitchen with my mom as a kid making Apple Pies. You know, the kids always get the not-so-fun jobs like peeling the apples but I learned how to make them the same way...just as my gram did and to this day I still use the same recipe. Memories like those are the reason I love baking today. :)

and last but certainly not least,

Brittany: When I was growing up, Mom made a lot of homemade cookies. Our kitchen wasn't huge, so she would store them in plastic containers that she would stick in the oven. Once evening while making dinner, we began to smell something funny. After investigating, we discovered that Mom had preheated her oven without checking it. The result? A bizarre sculpture-like mass of melted plastic and cookies dripping off of the oven rack. My sister and I couldn't stop laughing - and we still tease her about it.

The best part, however, is the fact that Mom did this THREE different times before she finally decided to find a different way to store cookies! :)

Congratulations friends!
