I just so happen to be in the market for a nice coffee table book with great photos and I am secretly pining away for a greener home. I am working on the green home from a personal stand point but can't change the construction so I will have to continue to admire those who can via this book. Thanks!

I am thinking whole coffee beans and cardamom. I use both in lots of my baking so this would be perfect!

I would make up a batch of the most delicious spaghetti sauce this side of the desert! Once that was done I would make a chocolate cake or maybe some baked apples. :-) This is starting to make me drool.

On a serious level my 4 year old daughter is OBSESSED with purses and bags. That would be great except the poor little thing has my narrow shoulders so the straps are always slipping off of her shoulders and it becomes a battle to get her to hold your hand in a crowded place when she has a backpack or bag on. This would save the battle and fill her need for a stylish bag!

She would fill her bag with...
1) lipgloss because that is her other obsession (thanks Bonnie Bell)
2) Vtech Smile handheld game
3) At least 1 Princess book (usually 2)
4) 1-2 Princess dolls
5) Coloring book & crayons
6) About 1,000 stickers to share with the world
7) Bottle of water
8) Snacks
9) Sunglasses
10) All of my change and the money she always manages to get people to give her just because she is cute (seriously this kid is a cash cow!)

Depending on the day it might be more but rarely ever less. At some point because of the handholding in crowds rule I end up having to carry the bag and to be honest, while I do love Tinkerbell I don't really feel the need to sport her on a backpack at my age! This bag could really be the answer to my prayers. :-)

I would have to go with a nice fresh tomato and mozzarella sandwich. Or maybe even a nice bacon, fresh tomato and mozzarella sandwich. Yum! My mouth is watering like crazy now. :-p

Of the 3 I would have to say nutmeg because I add it to my Alfredo sauce and it adds that little something special. It is a great spice that most people seem confused about what to do with.

I could use some in my sewing area, some at my husbands computer desk and some in my daughters room for her to play with. Oh the places these will go!

I am torn between the black (for the sake of my husband) and the lime green because it is just such a great color. In my ideal bag I would pack someone else to change diapers! In my reality I would pack diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, snacks on the go, anti-bacterial wipes for my hands (and hers), a bottle of water, tylenol, band-aids, 2-3 toys, 2 books, my wallet, keys, ipod and cell phone. Sheesh...I need a chiropractor!

Since I have taken up quilting I have been an ironing fool. At this point all I have is a travel size iron and it works but it is small and takes me forever. I could totally use this!

Personally I like my coffee full bodied and blonde (like myself)! That being said, I prefer a medium (or strong light) roast. I have not been the biggest fan of dark roast but there are of course some exceptions to that and those exceptions are spectacular! I would be ever so curious to sample the dark roast pictured above and see if it makes it onto my spectacular short list of darks. :-)

I have been wanting to try this recipe I found for a chocolate prune cake. I am sure that sounds gross to most people but that is what makes us all great...we are all so very different. I would really enjoy making it with a good quality chocolate so I hope I am lucky enough to win this.

My feet masquerade as ice blocks more often that I care to talk about. If I want to have any feeling in my feet at all I have to run hot hot hot water over them before getting into bed otherwise they are solid ice all night. This would be the answer to my prayers and hopefully the solution to my dilema. It really and truly sucks to wake up, stretch and get a muscle cramp in the arch of your foot because you are so cold. Generally the best way to loosen a cramp is to apply cold to it but when you are colder than ice it doesn't seem to work. That I have not gotten frostbite naturally is a miracle!

It got tons of use recently for my scratch carrot cake rolls. I converted my pumpkin roll recipe into a carrot cake roll! In doing so I had to mix up batches and batches of cake batter and then batches and batches of cream cheese frosting to coat them in. This scraper would have come in handy...let me tell you!

I love to get magazines, read them and pass them along to another lucky person. So if I win this it will benefit not only myself but the people around me!

If I were to use it I would put my latest quilting project in it while I worked on it so my fabric would stay neatly in one place and away from curious fingers. If my daughter were to use it (and she would really be the one to use it) she would most likey put her barbies in it for safe keeping or her newest quilt for fast finding.

I really must say that the lion is just adorable and the bank is such a great and unique item that my little girl will treasure them both.

I would love to have a simple night with the ladies in my life. Perhaps some nice wine, some great food and a evening of memories that will last a lifetime. If we are talking about a summer party though...I am going to a family reunion over the 4th of July and there will be LOTS of us there so something fast but YUMMY for those who know and love me most!
