Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Gratitude Giveaway Year Two! Rae Dunn Ceramics

Recently I was approached by a dad at the grocery store who enthusiastically waved a handful of tattered pages of paper toward me: recipes from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook, printed out by his wife who’d sent him to the market to gather ingredients.

He thanked me for the recipes.

I’m the one who feels thankful, particularly as “Mom’s Kitchen Handbook” hits the two-year mark. The time has flown by swiftly, largely because it’s been so much fun.   I’m grateful for this  creative forum and the community that has sprung from it. I read and appreciate every comment, suggestion, and email.

So, I’m doing a repeat performance of the last year’s Gratitude Giveaway, only this time it’s your kitchen we’re glamming up instead of your wardrobe (last year it was all about jewelry). In honor of this two-year anniversary, my talented, pretty-as-a-picture, pint-sized friend Rae Dunn has graciously donated two favorite pieces from her collection of beautiful ceramics.

A set of darling hand-made porcelain plates

A pair of charming salt and pepper bowls

Rae’s work has been featured in the pages of Bon Appetit, Sunset, and Martha Stewart Weddings. If you haven’t discovered her already, have a peek at her website or scroll through her inspiring blog.

You can enter to win three different ways: 1) Leave a comment below saying anything or everything you are grateful for 2) Get onto my Facebook page and “like” it. 3) Become a subscriber by entering your email in the “subscribe” box on the right side of my home page.

I will count each as one “chance” for entry and pick two winners.

The deadline for entries is midnight PST Wednesday December 12. You must be 18 years or older to win and live in the United States.
