Another week of Cooking Light Giveaway!


Last weekend I made this Cranberry Hazelnut Coffeecake from Cooking Light. I had been eying this recipe for a while and now that fresh cranberries are abundant in the grocery I decided it was time to make it. I also had another reason I should make this coffeecake as you will soon find out!

A several weeks ago my friend Aaron of asked me if I would be interested in doing another giveaway and if so, when would I like to do it. I immediately responded that I thought the first week of December would be a great time. Just in time for the holidays! This also would give me opportunity to bake some new (to me) recipes.

My magazine of choice to give away is Cooking Light. What, your not surprised? :o) Aaron has generously offered to give away 3 subscriptions!! I asked Aaron if it would be ok to share this giveaway with a blogging friend and he agreed. So, for this giveaway my friend Patsy of Family, Friends, and Food , who also loves Cooking Light magazine will be participating.

    The hazelnut coffee cake looks so light and pefectly textured Shelby. Yoo bad here in the Great White North we cannot win a subscription from my favourite magazine…sigh….

    My favorite tradition by far is baking Christmas cookies.

    If I win Shelby, throw my number back in and draw again because I already subscribe to Cooking Light!

    Lately I'm enjoying forging new traditions with my fiance. Some old some new. I'm definitely bringing tradition of the Peppermint Pig from Saratoga Sweets.

    I love that cake! I have some cranberries in the freezer, have to give it a try! Yours looks so lovely.

    No need to enter me n the giveaway – I work for the same company that publishes CL. But good luck to everyone else!

    I guess my favorite holiday tradition is just being able to cook all my favorite goodies like peppermint bark and fudge!

    We love the annual tradition of our married kids coming over Christmas morning, opening gifts, having a yummy breakfast, then coming back later in the day for Christmas dinner.

    The coffecake looks so tempting, Shelby!
    My favorite Cristmas traditions are cookie baking; my kids still say it's not really Christmas unless certain cookies are made.
    We also have a real tree every year, a tradition that I'm now willing to change, but maybe when all the kids leave the fold, I can do this.
    I am already a follower of yours, and when I get on Facebook, I'll do that too!

    I love traditions~ Christmas cookies, new p.j.'s, sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace and putting a puzzle together.

    I follow you and Grumpy's !

    My fav tradition is the Christmas pudding. I have been trying out lighter versions this year but there is nothing to beat a dark, spicy fruity brandy soaked pudding. Oh and dont forget the brandy butter of course.
    I follow your blog and will retweet the contest entry.
    Thanks for the lovely Christmas cooking ideas.

    Awesome giveaway! My favorite tradition is dinner at my mom's.
    She still makes the Polish pierogi and we have a meatless Christmas Eve. At the table there is an empty place setting and chair with a bit of straw under the tablecloth. This is to signify the place for the baby Jesus.
    I also have an advent calendar every year…some kids can't grow up!

    My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve at my grandparents…it's a traditional Italian Christmas Eve with tons of seafood!!

    Love Cooking Light! :)
