Giveaway Is Now Closed. 12 Days Of Holiday Baking – Blogger Spotlight & Giveaway – Carol’s Corner

Today’s Blogger Spotlight is extra special – as it includes a giveaway for you!  Yay!   Meet Carol Bryant, also known as Pampered Chef Consultant Carol’s Corner on Facebook.  Carol is always sharing great recipes, ideas and products as well as great recipes and finds from around the web.   Today she has a few great recipes to share and some Pampered Chef products to give to you!

First Carol is sharing a recipe for Pomegranate-White Chocolate Cheesecake.  YUM.  This would certainly be an impressive (and well received) dish to bring to a holiday party or potluck.    And to help you make it, Carol is giving one lucky Love From The Oven reader their very own Springform Pan

The next recipe REALLY gets my attention…  White Chocolate Cupcakes With Truffle Filling.

As a big white chocolate fan, let me tell you I’d be THRILLED to see those on a treat tray someone shows up with during the holidays!   And to help you make those delicious cupcakes, Carol is giving that one lucky Love From The Oven reader their own Decorator Bottle Set I think these would be very handy for many of your holiday recipes, and these would be great to use when the kids are decorating cookies.

Pampered Chef has a number of GREAT gift ideas on their site, showing you how you can take something as simple as a bowl and really dress it up for gift giving.   They also have some really fun ideas for centerpieces, how cute are these???

One thing I really noticed while looking around the Pampered Chef site is that they have a lot of items that would make great gifts for those hard to buy for people that you never know what to buy.   I often have trouble finding inexpensive gifts for the men in my family, but the Great Grilling Seasoning and Recipe Collection or Sauce It Up would both be PERFECT.

Carol is offering 15% off purchases for Love From The Oven readers.  Keep reading below to get directions to getting your discount (information is below the giveaway information).
