“Danke Schoen, darling, danke schoen…”

Ah yes, who doesn’t love a Wayne Newton reference? As always, there is method to my madness.

I’ve noticed in the past two or three weeks, the traffic on my blog has exploded. Either FoodGawker and Tastespotting have lowered their standards or my photography has improved substantially. And apparently, my take on the Pumpkin Nutella Cheesecake hit the blogosphere at just the perfect time. It’s been featured on Yummly, as well as what appears to be a pretty popular French blog, Clea Cuisine. And so, I wanted to say thanks, and offer up a little something to you, my readers.


Sort of a “make-your-own-Pumpkin-Nutella-Cheesecake” kit. Here’s what you get:

  • 1 Can of organic pumpkin (sorry, but I just don’t trust Libby’s)
  • A Box of graham crackers, for the crust (Honey Maid Grahams were what we always had when I was growing up, so they’re my favorite)
  • A Jar of Nutella, for the swirl
  • a $10 gift card to Bed, Bath & Beyond, so you can put it towards the purchase of a springform pan, or even a deep-dish pie pan

Which, if you end up winning, and don’t like cheesecake or don’t want to go to the trouble, I wouldn’t blame you for smearing the Nutella on the graham crackers and using the pumpkin for a pie or whatever. I’ve been thinking for awhile about doing another giveaway, and this seems like as good a time as any.

Here’s the details: The giveaway will run until Saturday morning, October 13, 2012, at 8 AM, CST. It is sponsored by me and me alone, although it is limited to US residents only, because of the B3 gift card–Which I have to thank my friend Karyn for going and picking up for me! I hate giveaways that make people jump through 8 billion hoops to enter, so I never require anyone to “like me on Facebook,” or “follow me on Twitter” (although if you want to do that, I would appreciate it!). Instead, just tell me what your favorite dessert is. Are cookies your thing? Ice cream? Pie? Cake? I’ll choose the winner using a random number generator and announce it sometime during the day on Sunday!

Sharing is caring!

  1. The only reason Dad took Mom to Las Vegas was so that she could see Wayne Newton……her life was complete…

  2. I’m going to go with cake. I’ll never turn down any dessert of any kind, but cake is definitely at the top.

  3. Congrats on the blog buzz you’re having! Much, much, much deserved. Very happy for you.

    My favorite desserts? Probably any kind of bars (peanut butter, jam filled, nut-filled), etc! :)
