Okay gang, here’s the scoop. Today’s post is not my usual.

If you know me at all, you know that I hyperventilate at being the center of attention (or even the side of attention, if you want to know the truth). Seriously, I had major anxiety the day of my wedding – not nerves over getting married – but about the fact that there were going to be 200 people looking at me.

Today’s post is kind of like that.  See, a while ago, I received an e-mail from Better Homes and Gardens asking me (me!) to participate in a fun little baking contest in which I’d be tasked with putting my own twist on a BHG recipe.

While I’d like to be all cool and tell you that I receive e-mails like this on the daily, I in fact, do not.  So after I had a freak-out, I immediately responded with a big fat HECK YES…and then I realized I actually had to compete against some seriously talented bloggers.  And now it’s too late for me to back out because you can’t renig on Better Homes and Gardens, right?

So that means today I’m asking you to vote between myself and Aimee from Shugary Sweets.  Aimee made those Peppermint Cream Bites and I basically want to stuff that stack of three right in my mouth.  So if you want to vote for her, I totally get it.  I’ll probably vote for her myself.

Peppermint - Kitchen Meets Girl & Shugary Sweets

I’ve met Aimee in real life, and she is one of the coolest chicks I’ve ever had the opportunity to know.  Plus, she has a completely rockin’ blog…so yeah, I’m completely honored to be competing against her today.  And even if I lose, I win, you  know what I mean?

So you can CLICK HERE (from 9am CST to 9pm CST on Nov.18th-ONE DAY ONLY) to vote for which peppermint dessert you like best!  The four finalists get to compete in a BakeOff at the BHG Test Kitchens.

And if you just want the recipe, you can CLICK HERE.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
