This is my 25th Post on Alaska from Scratch. It’s been an amazing few weeks! I have been deeply honored and humbled by your support and how you’ve spread the word to 9 countries/regions and 30 States. I just can’t say thank you enough. I’d like to give a shout out to our neighboring readers in Canada and Russia, the newest areas to join the list. Also, a friendly “Ahoy!” to Australia, UK, France, and Asia. Thank you all for continuing to share recipes across the globe from my little corner of Alaska. And, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a little love to my five top-reading States: Alaska, California, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Texas. A big, snowy Alaskan cyber hug coming straight at ya. Keep sharing the love.
What has been most exciting for me is getting comments and emails from you on how you’re making my recipes in your own kitchens. Just last night, I received a message from the East Coast with a photo and a glowing report of my Maple Sweet Potato Pie recipe. That just blessed my socks off! Your feedback is an encouragement to me, so keep up the comments and emails!
Now for the Giveaway. I am thrilled to be giving away a 1lb bag of Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend whole-bean coffee along with an Alaska Starbucks collector’s travel mug! My daughter and I went out in -11 degrees this morning to get these in preparation for our big Giveaway because we’re just that excited about it.
