Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 15 PLUS a GIVEAWAY!

Print Post

This week has been absolutely crazy with trying to prep for vacation.  I had about a million things going on and almost forgot that yesterday (the 9th) was the third birthday for this blog.  Things have changed a LOT in the last three years since I started, but I won’t forget my sister’s words of encouragement in starting a blog when I was looking for some sense of direction.  I say this all the time, but it is true: I never imagined that a baking blog would help me find myself and hone in on my passion for sharing desserts.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I’d be running my own business shipping cookies to complete strangers, now valued customers, in every state, even to Hawaii.

Beyond that, I can’t even believe that a year and a half ago I was still working in finance (going insane and having regular emotional breakdowns, mind you).  For more of the story on how I got started read my announcement blog post and the about me page.

And to celebrate three years of blogging, I’m offering a very special giveaway!!  TWO readers will win a package of Keep It Sweet Dessert’s newest items.  One is the cookie pictured below (shh, the flavor is a secret) and the other is a new fall special that I can’t wait to reveal.  I worked hard on both items and think they are going to be a hit.  Since I love you guys so much, I thought it would only be fair to offer you a sneak peak.  The two people that win the giveaway will be the first of just a few to try these sweets.  Scroll down for all the details.

    I’m actually not really expecting to win (though I am hoping) but I wanted to say HAPPY BLOG BDAY and I’m so proud and happy to know you. I’m guessing the new flavor is S’mores?!?

    My guess is… chocolate chunk & espresso (sorta like a java chip Frappucino!) with sea salt?
