Happy Birthday, Crazy For Crust: A Birthday Giveaway!!!

Helloooooooo there!

Today is a very special day because toooodaaaay is Dorothy’s birthday!

Aaaaand not only is it her big 21st 😉 it’s also her blog, Crazy For Crust‘s birthday, too!

cake6Some of you may not know, but Dorothy and I are actually neighbors.  Really — we live approx. 2 minutes away from one another.  And unbeknownst to us, we would walk our dogs/drive our cars past each other’s houses constantly before we would realize we were neighbors!

So as you can imagine, there is a lot of dessert-swapping that goes on.  And frantic texts asking if the other has some flour to spare.  Okay, maybe that’s just me–ahem.

Anyway, if I know Dorothy, there are a few things that are absolutes with this chick.

1. She absolutely loves carrot cake.
2. She HATES condiments, except peanut butter.
3. She’s obsessed with crust — obviously.
4. She loves wine 🙂
5. And she loves drinking wine while curling up with a great book — this girl LOVES to read!

In fact, she’s introduced me and my mom to some great mystery/thrillers (Dorothy is partial to Dean Koontz, if you didn’t know) and she is always picking up some good reads (and falling in love with some of my favorites, too!)  So it’s no wonder that for her special birthday and for Crazy For Crust’s third birthday that she’d give away an awesome gift like this!
