My most favorite holiday that I look forward to would have to be Christmas and the thing i love most is on Christmas eve we do Prime rib and PJs. Yup we have prime rib in our Christmas Jammies and hang out around the fire and watch Christmas movies. We have prime rib once a yr at our house as a tradition and so look forward to it. The smell is divine and so is the flavor. A little splurge for that time of year. Karen I do know is a great place to order from. I have had the experience of speaking with her sweet hubby on the phone and chatting with Karen by email. I must say they are the kindest couple. I have not yet ordered from the other places listed but have heard terrific things. Congrats on your milestone. So happy for you and wish you nothing but continued success. argento58@nc.rr.com and if you can not reach me there I do have a fb account where I can be reached. Stacey McDonnell

CONGRATULATION SONGBIRD SWEETS on your 5,000th Fan!!!!!! I look forward to Christmas every year, all the lights and decorations. People seem to be a lot nicer during the Christmas season (expect when shopping for gifts lol). I always cooked sweet potato pie (my grandmother's recipe) with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. YUM!

My favorite holiday is St. Patrick's Day. I'm from an Irish family & my Dad's birthday is on St. Paddy's day! My kids love to wake up to the leprechaun's tricks (potty water turns green-he didn't flush! my daughter's toenails painted gold while she slept, etc.) We have so much fun......plus then there's beer. :)
Congrats!

It's not a national holiday...but my birthday is the best day of the year for me because my mom makes my favorite German Chocolate Cake with Pecan Coconut icing. It's the only time she makes it every year and that's what makes it a holiday...Otherwise, my favorite national holiday is Halloween, because I love candy and making Halloween themed cookies.

walaika haskins said...

I've like Karen's Cookies for a while...each time I go to her site to make an order, I find a new cutter that's my favorite. Of them all, though I think the plaque cutters and the sweater cutter are the ones I've been using the most recently.

I just liked/thanked Karen's Cookies. I think my favorite item from that store is the Wilton 3 pc Holiday Decadent Set. Christmas is another favorite holiday of mine, and I have always loved making sugar cookie cutouts for friends and family for Christmas. But with SO Many options on that site, it's really hard to pick just ONE! I see some browsing/buying in my future...

I thanked Golden, Ecrandal & Karen! I love Golden’s items, and my favorite would be the bibs, and burp cloths. The jelly bean cutter would be my favorite from Ecrandal. Fondant would be my favorite from Karen’s. Hard decision to make, because all three have such great products.

I'm proud to say that Karen and Mike (of KarensCookies) are the nicest people you will ever meet. Lightning fast shipping, pretty packaging, "thank you for your business" notes, and little extras are why I shop Karens' first. Love all the products and tutorials -- the "boo boo sticks" are genius.

I am and have been a huge fan of Karen's cookies along with Ecrandal....I really adore Ecrandal! Their Customer service is unbelievable! My favorite holiday would be Christmas, with Thanksgiving falling close behind with the favorite dessert being a homemade apple pie with a Vermont Cheddar cheese crust! A match made in heaven!
