Let it Begin!

Giveaway #1!

Join me in celebrating my blog this week. This is post 1,012. Although, I have not received this milestone very fast, more of a snail's pace actually, I thought it worthy enough to celebrate with some fun Maine-themed giveaways.

Today? Well, today a lucky winner will receive one dozen homemade whoopie pies. I don't make this offer lightly as they are not something I enjoy making as I feel they are very time consuming. However, in the interest of celebration - I'll do it. 

Oh, what is a whoopie pie?

Ever seen an Oreo Cakester? That's pretty much the same thing. This link has a good history of the whoopie pie along with some recipes. I'll be using my mom's tried and true recipe. 

How to enter:
  1. Leave a comment telling me what your favorite good is - mandatory.
  2. Leave a second comment to tell me if you are already a follower or become one.
  3. If you have ever had a whoopie pie, what is your favorite flavor?
  4. Blog about my week of giveaways with a link back here and leave a comment telling me about it. Be sure to include the link to your post.
Make sure you come back each day this week. I have something to giveaway each and every day!

Due to cost of shipping - the giveaway is only open to US mailing addresses. Thanks!

PS: I will be working on a button for the giveaway today. I didn't have time over the weekend. Feel free to add it or check back for it later.


  1. Stopping by on the blog walk. Congratulations on so many posts! Many more than I have done.

  2. I want to win!! Favorite goody? hmmm I love cheesecake, yellow cake w/cream cheese frosting, brownies, and oh so many more!

  3. I keep seeing Whoopie Pies on-line and I would love to try them. (Especially since they do seem so hard to make!) My favorite goody??? Wow, there are so many. Fudge maybe?

  4. whoopie pies, but I agree, not the most fun to make.

    My favorite goodie...the list of things I don't like would be shorter...I guess given a choice, I would pick ice cream.

  5. Oh my! Whoopie pies - oh yum!!! The flavor you have shown is my favorite! (I don't know much about them...only had them in PA when visiting family but they are AWESOME!), how would I get them? Are you going to mail them? ha ha

  6. I am now following you! woo hoo!

  7. favorite food? Anything sweet! ha ha Ok, tacos are one of my most favority foods!


  8. Congratulations on your 1000th are waaay ahead of me:-)

    I've never tried whoopie pies, but I have a feeling that even if I win I still won't get to try one (my kids will yum them all up!). My favorite goody would have to be a gooey homemade brownie with pecans and chocolate ice cream melting on top...and don't forget the hot fudge.

  9. I think you meant favorite food. If so, cookies. Homemade chocolate chip cookies, but not hot out of the oven like normal people; I like mine cooled.

    Favorite flavor? I guess original, but I like the ones that my mother would make when I was a kid, but I think she put real butter in the filling, and butter makes everything better!

    Yes, I'm a subscriber. :)

  10. Favorite Food - No bake choco cookies? or Rice Crispie bars? I think it is more child hood nestalgic than taste. :)

  11. 1. Oh, anything from Maine, of course...Whoopie Pies, Labadie Bakery Bismarck donuts, my mom's chicken stew and ployes (okay, not a "goodie" but GOOD!)

    2. I don't "follow" on blogs, but I do have you on my RSS feed, does that count???

    3. I think the traditional flavor is best, but if you have to muddy it up, good old chocolate with peanut butter cream would be my next choice!!!

    4. uh...if I can remember to blog, I will!!!

  12. My favorite goodie is an ice cream sundae.

  13. I have had a whoopie pie before but I didn't realize they came in different flavors. So my favorite would be the standard chocolate one. :)

  14. Yummy! Congratulations on such an amazing milestone!
    I have had a pumpkin whoopie pie, but not a chocolate one. I think sending to Hawaii is a bit much though. :)
    Whoever wins...enjoy! I'll have to make my own. :(
    Congrats again!

  15. Mine would have to be Whoopie Pie's I love them!!! YUM! :)

  16. My favorite flavor is probably the traditional, however, I do love a good pumpkin one.. :)

  17. My favorite goody is tiramisu. (an Italian layered cake custard coffee thing!) I made a batch for the first time this weekend.. too yummmm.

  18. I've only had the chocolate, but I've seen some fancy ones like red velvet and pumpkin spice. I'm sure the red velvet would be a favorite though!

  19. I blogged about this!



Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
