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 guess coffee flavor
Hmmmm could they be salted chocolate coffee?
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?
That’s not it but that does sound amazing….!
I’m guessing espresso cookies with chocolate chips and sea salt.
It looks like coffee chocolate chip with sea salt.
Not quite sure, something with chocolate and sea salt.
Chocolate Macadamia Nut?
Salty Coconut Chocolate Chip
Hmmm…. maybe pecan and chocolate chip
Looks like perhaps a coconut mocha inspired cookie. Either that or there are flecks of sea salt in there.
Looks like chocolate chip with shaved chocolate and sea salt maybe.
Cappuccino and chocolate maybe? Happy 3 years, and many more:)

Salted Carmel & chocolate.
My guess is toffee chocolate chunk with sea salt!
I’m thinking there’s espresso in there – maybe with some chocolate? Or Oreos? Whatever it is, looks delicious! :)
