Gingerbread Delights & Hodgson Mill $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway
A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 50!

A page from my Great Grandmother's hand-written cookbook.


Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 50!

To celebrate, everyone who links up and comments this week will be entered in a random drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Hodgson Mill!
(details below)


We may no longer bake with lard or molasses by the pint like my Great Grandma Maggie did, but one thing hasn't changed:  Using a high quality flour makes all the difference in your baked goods. I recently had the opportunity to sample some of the flours from Hodgson Mill, a family owned business that's been grinding grain since 1882!  I can honestly say their wheat flour is the best I've ever baked with.
I'll be sharing my recipe for Cranberry Upside-down Babycakes, using Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat flour on Friday, but in the meantime,   Hodgson Mill is generously giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky "A Little Birdie Told Me..." participant.  You can spend it in their online store where you'll find flours & meals, pastas, cereals, mixes, gifts and even some gluten-free products!

To enter:  Simply link-up (regular party rules apply) and leave a comment telling me what you're baking this month. 

I'll use to select a winner when the linky closes at 8:00 PM PST on the 14th


In honor of my great grandma's affinity of ginger treats (her cookbook is filled with them), I'm featuring two posts I know she would have loved!
