Welcome to my new blog and a GIVEAWAY! {closed}

by Melissa on October 6, 2010

Giveaway has now ended! Check back again for another giveaway coming soon!

Thank you for visiting! After blogging over at Made by Melissa for over two years, I have moved over to my own self-hosted blog. I changed the name to Made in Melissa’s Kitchen to emphasize that this is a food blog, unlike some of the other “Made by Melissa’s” out there! I hope you love the new site as much as I do and to thank you, I’ve decided to do a giveaway!

{The Loot}

Wilton Stand Mixer Scraper I would LOVE to giveaway a stand mixer, but unfortunately I am not made of money! This scraper, however, is the next best thing! It is made to reach the bottom of your stand mixer bowl and makes mixing thick doughs and batters a breeze.

KitchenAid Measuring Cups and Spoons I own 3 sets of measuring cups and 4 sets of measuring spoons, and there are times when I use every single one! When you are having a party or a big holiday celebration, you can never have to many measuring cups and spoons!

Chefmate 3-Cup Measuring Cup Same as the measuring cups and spoons above, it never hurts to have an extra measuring cup on hand! And this one holds 3 cups, which also makes it perfect for mixing things like vinaigrettes and dressings.

Cookie Scoop Don’t you love it when your cookies are all uniform in size in shape? Well maybe not, but I do! I use cookie scoops all the time, and not just for cookies. These are good for measuring out the batter for mini muffins and cupcakes, shaping truffles and cake balls, and even for making perfectly round meatballs!

Cupcake Liners 3 packages of fun cupcake liners! No boring white liners here, brightly colored liners make cupcakes look even more delicious!

{How to Enter}

Mandatory Entry: Leave a comment telling me what your favorite thing to bake is!

Bonus Entries: Leave a separate comment when you do each of the following.
1. Follow me on Twitter (if you already do, leave a comment telling me that!)
2. Tweet about this giveaway and leave a link to your tweet (once).
3. Subscribe to Made in Melissa’s Kitchen in a reader or RSS feed.
4. Subscribe by e-mail.

*Please note, comment moderation is enabled.

{The Rules}

Giveaway will end October 17th at midnight.
One winner will be chosen using random.org and announced on October 18th, if that person does not respond by October 20th, another winner will be chosen
US mailing addresses only.
This is not a sponsored giveaway.

Good luck!

Congrats on the url and blog move!! Everything looks great. I love to bake anything and everything…it’s hard to choose and also depends on what mood I am in. Muffins are always a good standby when you’re in a rush but want something homemade. :) So I guess all things quick bread-ish, muffins, bundt cakes, quick bread…. That said, I love making pies, crisps…hahaha. Yeah, I love to bake. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Definitely my favorite thing to bake is bread! I just recently made some challah and it’s so rewarding seeing something start as just some flour and yeast and then it becomes this beautiful loaf!

I’m a big brownie baker… usually at least once a week I’m heading for the chocolate. I found an amazing brownie recipe a few years ago and that was the last time I ever bought a ready-made box. Homemade is way better.

I also make a mean monkey bread that I don’t make often because it seems to disappear within minutes.

I’m following your blog, but can’t seem to connect to twitter. Will keep trying.
