Carol Viens said...

Oh my... favorite desert? So many deserts like so many quilt blocks. How do you choose just one favorite??? How about New York Style Cheesecake?...wait, Brownie Sundae...no, chocolate chip cookies....no, hot fudge sundae!....no, Cheesecake, definitely cheesecake!.....

sunflowermorning said...

So many to choose from...but I think my favorite is a dessert I grew up making...my mom had me early on learning how to bake...Brownie Pudding is one we made a lot, and I continue to make and everyone who has it loves it too. Kind of a magic recipe how the pudding ends up on the bottom with a brownie layer on top.

vwlady said...

My favorite has to be homemade Lemon Meringue Pie. There's always room for a refreshing piece of this pie.....thanks for nice giveaway!

Carolyn Sullivan said...

I love the 100 blocks and the Fasset fabric (hope I spelled that right!) you are a lucky girl it's i nice gift pack!

I love all kinds of desserts! However, if I have an option, I'll always pick something with coconut and/or pineapple. Whether it's cheesecake, ice cream or cookies, I love the combo of coconut/pineapple. Thanks for doing another drawing Bonnie! You are so inspiring for us quilters! Cheri

Usually split with my husband but, oh, when I get to go and have the entire thing to myself....Ooohhhh, sooooo good.

Debora Exum said...

Coconut cake! Thanks for the give away.

What a great give-away, thanks so much for hosting it :)

Dee said...

Oh so jealous. My favorite desert: Better Than Sex Cake. Chocolate, carmel, toffee, whipped cream..................yum

Mary Ellen said...

I come from a long line of pie bakers. Had made every kind, but never raspberry. They are always very pricey here in St. Louis and come in little tiny boxes of one layer for around $4. But, one year the grocery stores had them, 10 boxes for $10. We ate ourselves crazy on fresh raspberries but couldn't keep up, because, as you know, they are so fragile and deteriorate so quickly. I got the idea to make a pie. Couldn't find a recipe specifically for raspberry pie, so I adapted the one I use for blackberry pie with less sugar. Worked great and it was absolutely, hands down, the most delicious pie ever!

laura said...

when I was a little girl grandma always made me for my birthday, spice cake with butter brickle icing. They stopped making the icing years ago. I'd have to say my now favorite is Lemon cake with blueberries in it, or in my family it's known as Fly cake. IT was the first cake I ever made by myself at Grandma's and my Dad refused to eat it, telling me that the blueberries were flies. Now every once in a while he gets a blueberry cake with plastic flies on top of it.

Lakegaldonna said...

Creme brûlée is my new favorite have it once a year dessert.
Although the orange scone that Michelle mentions above from Panera sounds equally yummy.

Kelly said...

How generous you are to share! My favorite dessert is chocolate torte - rich, fudgy, chocolate! Have a great time at the Block Party. Looks like lots of fun in a great location.

Dayjilly said...

Date nut cake. Deliciously moist, with chocolate chips and walnuts for flavor and crunch. Heavenly!

cathy jarrett said...

My most favorite dessert is my Mother's homemade cherry pie. It has tart cherries in a great flaky crust. Add vanilla ice cream and you will be in dessert heaven.

JoAnne said...

Cheesecake.

Charlene S said...

Pecan pie with vanilla ice cream on top! Can't beat it.

bertiequilts said...

my favorite dessert is Lemon Merangue pie... I would call my mother who lived 600 miles from me and ask her if she had Lemon merangue pie in the frig as I was on my way to see her... of course, by the time I got there 12 hours later she would have the pie already for me to eat.

Glenda said...

I'm drooling just reading these comments. My favorite is apple crisp still warm from the oven.

Claudia said...

The give-a-way tote and goodies are wonderful. The book is to die for. My favorite dessert is anything chocolate. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of the book.

Looks like a great bag of goodies. My favorite dessert is chocolate cake with coconut pecan frosting. I never get this because no one else in my huge extended family will eat that frosting. Someday I'll indulge and make a cake just for me. Thanks for the opportunity. Have fun out there.

Deb said...

I've a huge fan of coconut cream pie, but like red velvet cake too!

Melissa said...

Anything with chocolate!

Candace said...

Unfortunately, I love almost all desserts, but my favorite is probably ice cream, I get actual cravings for it. The gooier and crunchier the better, of course.

Reese @ Quilty Reese said...

Strawberry shortcake. My husband makes the best one I have ever had. I am a lucky girl!

suzanne, dutchess county NY said...

Wow! What a nice giveaway. Good luck to all, but I hope I win.
My absolute favorite ( hard to choose cause I am a dessert freak) is a Napoleon.
It has it all, chocolate, custard and a flaky pastry inside.
My Mom and I used to splurge sometimes. We would get a deli made roast beef sandwich and a Napoleon and share. Eating only half makes us not feel guilty indulging.

Freda said...

That is a great "goodie" bag! My favorite dessert is Strawberry Jello cake with fresh strawberries. Yummy!!!!

gmp said...

Very nice Swag Bag!

My favorite dessert would have to be either Tiramisu or Bananas Foster served over vanilla ice cream.

Thank you for the giveaway.

Betty Bland said...

Triple lemon creme pie with gluten-free cookie dough crust.

Jean said...

I used to love my own refrigerated lemon cheesecake, but can't eat anything that sweet any more, so I'd say blueberries are my favorite and they are so good for you.

Wendy said...

Oh my, now I want something sweet. I'd say my Mimi's Carrot cake with Penuche frosting. I think it was a depression recipe, because it was so different than any other cake. But mine never turns out like hers, I'll choose Cheesecake. y.u.m.

Donna said...

What a wonderful bag of goodies! Enjoy!
My favorite dessert? Ice cream, of course!

Linda said...

Sour Cream Key Lime Pie. mmmmmmmm! from snowy Alberta

New York Super Fudge Chunk by Ben and Jerry's!!
Thanks for showing us the new book and giving us the chance to win one too!

Robyn said...

I really love a hot fudge cake from Shoneys. There aren't many Shoneys in my area anymore so I don't get them anymore besides the fact that icecream seems to put weight on me faster than anything!

Dreamquilter Elke said...

Do you remember? My favorite is the German cheesecake where I made in Stuttgart - Camberg last year. Have a nice day and thank you for all your time and giveaways!!

Trish said...

My favorite dessert is an old family favorite. We call it Lemon Chiffon Pudding, but I think it is also called Lemon Sponge. It is baked in a water bath and the mixture separates into two layers, a cake on top and a lemony sauce on the bottom. It is served warm with fresh, real whipped cream, and is so good. When we have it it brings back so many memories of Sunday dinners. My dad is a great cook, and he got the recipe from the aunt who raised him. She was a great woman, and I love remembering her through this dessert.

Pam Kellebrew said...

Dessert is my second favorite thing in the world! Mine doesn't have a formal name as it's one my mom made up. We called it the vanilla pudding stuff, lol. It's a graham cracker crust with a doctored up vanilla pudding in it and made in a cake pan so there was LOTS~ I asked for this on every birthday and other occasion I could get away with.
Thanks for the sweet contest Bonnie!

Anita said...

My favorite dessert is Chocolate Mousse. Thanks for the giveawasy!

ria vogelzang said...

My grandmother's homemade coconut cake. She made that every year for my birthday and she even grated a fresh coconut to make it. Every bite was confirmation of her love for me. Sigh...

I love your blog. I am always inspired by all that you accomplish. My favorite dessert is a cream filled cake from a local bakery in Kalamazoo, MI. I live in TX so I only can have it once a year when I head home.
