Merry Christmas from the Ribbon Reel - giveaway

Keilli, the owner of The Ribbon Reel (and a sponsor of my blog) has a wonderful lot of loot for one of my lucky blog readers. Although not able to dispatch prior to Christmas, how about being in with a chance to cure your crimbo hangover with pwitty little pwitties for your craft box?To enter the draw, just leave a comment and if you get a mo - link me to one of your fave quick canapes/snacksters for crimbo/new year.

Talking of which - I made these, today, for my Marky. He is 44 tomorrow and I thought I'd slave for a few hours making these DELICIOUS cinnamon rolls using The Pioneer Woman's recipe from her fab book that Mark bought me earlier this year (its a well thumbed recipe book, make no mistake). Here they are, albeit without so much butter and vegetable oil, as per her recipe and the addition of plump currants to make it, erm.....healthy?. I can't tell you how frikkin amazing they were.
Perhaps my hips will, this time next week ;)

Bakers twine is divine! Yummalicious blog candy! Thank you for the opportunity!

Kirsty the bakers twine looks lovely & this box of goodies is perhaps what I need to give me a push to add more ribbon; for some reason its addiction just does not come naturally for me and I really struggle to use ribbon in my LO's.

Must have a look at the recipe as those cinnamon rolls look yum!

Happy Christmas x

Cakepops are all the rage in this house. So far I've made 3 different shapes and we're eating xmas tree's @ our xmas brunch ;)

Paul said...

The rolls look so yummy. But I really must stop pre-Christmas snacking. Already gained 2lbs!

I adore ribbons, and would love to win as I'm sure that Rach & Sue would love to split the majority of the loot!!

My fav nibble is carr's water biscuit with philly, smoked salmon bits and a good grind of black pepper on top - yummy!!

oooo drool, gorgeous giveaway.

these turkey and broccoli quiches are amazing, and great for using leftover turkey in the new year. I make them tiny, in individual 4 inch size tins. Great with a bag of chips....or salad if you are feeling good.

Those cinnamon rolls look scrumptious and so perfect! That picture looks as if it could have come straight out of a cookery book.

Would love to win ribbons and especially Bakers Twine (it seems we all crave that) as never used it before.

Love all that ribbon and twine goodness! Thanks for the chance to win!
The cinnamon rolls look fab! They would make a fabulous Christmas morning breakfast! My favorite treat to make is a cookie recipe for almond bars.
Happy Birthday to Mark!

Sue Ramsay said...

Goodness it's a good job we dont have to choose between the edible and the incredible - cos both look divine. If Mark struggles with eating them let me know and I will be down. xxxxxxxxxxx

naomi_m said...

I so want to make those cinnamon rolls!

Ribbon buying is my addiction, well is cheaper than booze, shoes and bags and it comes in more colours and sizes!

Nice buns Kirsty!!!

Please share the recipe or we'll all come knocking on your door for a piece!!!!

Our new fave christmas nibble is from Jamie/Sainsburys.

Ooh, I am a sucker for Bakers Twine!

I don't have a link but mini yorkshire puddings, filled with horseradish and creme fraiche, topped with thinly slice roast beef and snipped chives always look fabulous and go down well every year.

If you want to use up Turkey, do the same but use stuffing mixed with creme fraiche and a little blob of cranberry sauce topped with chopped parsley!

Jenny said...

I made those cinnamon rolls this year too...very yummy!
