Holiday Baking, Cooling Racks, and a Giveaway!

posted by Andrea | 11/10/2010

You all know that I LOVE to simplify my life — it’s become an obsession!

Well, I also LOVE kitchen gadgets, ESPECIALLY kitchen gadgets that help me to simplify my life.

So you better believe that these handy-dandy, multi-functional, stackable, fold-flat-for-storage, cooling racks rate pretty high on the “things I love” list!

Not only do they save me loads of precious counter space when I’m baking double batches of our favorite treats, they also help my treats to cool quicker {because I’m always in a rush}.

And did I mention they fold flat for storage??

Yup, they only take up about 2″ of space!!

Now wouldn’t these just be the perfect “Clutter-Free Gift” for someone on your list this year? {Christmas is only 45 days away}

OK, so who wants to win a set of 3?

Simply leave a comment below listing the holiday baking you plan to tackle this month and you’ll be entered to win!!

This contest is open until Tuesday, November 16, 2010, at 11:59pm EST.

ONE winner will be selected at random and announced on Wednesday, November 17. Please read my full disclosure policy and contact me with any questions you might have.

    I would love the cooling racks! I hope to do lots of cookie baking for the holidays. I had a broken foot & ankle last year so there wasn’t alot of baking done. I have to make up for last year! Definitely going to make our family favorite, cut out sugar cookie fully decked out.

  2. Monette


    I making pumpkin pie,butterscotch cake, and muffins!

    What a perfect idea for cooling baked goods. I usually just plop my cookies on a towel covered with waxed paper and let them cool!

    I have already started with my quick breads, spritz cookies and fudge….it all freezes well and that is what I give out to my son’s bus drivers and our neighbors! I still have peppermint bark, cutout sugar cookies and a couple new snack items that I want to try this year to do but I plan to have it all done by the end of Thanksgiving so I can enjoy December and what the holidays are meant to be.

    Would love to add these back to my baking stuff as I was looking for mine a few weeks back and realized I purged these when I moved 3 years ago -WHY?!

  6. Vicki


    Me. I want to win. I am planning to make Chex Party Mix and my E-Z fudge recipe to send to my son in Afghanistan this week. Next week I intend to bake Christmas cut-outs for a church fund-raiser and would love to have these stackable trays to “cool” them down quicly to be able to frost and freeze ASAP.

  7. Tami


    Wow, I would be so inspired with winning these that I would find something to bake if I wasn’t going to already. But all the holiday comfort foods that are calling my name to bake- cookies, breads, bars- the healthy stuff!

    I just want to bake chocolate chip cookies… :)
    Happy Holidays!

    I’m new to your site and have loved it! thank you!
    Last year in the beginning of December I miscarried our 3rd daughter late in the pregnancy and was very ill until January so I never baked. This year I already have a list of everything I want to do that I didn’t last year! Sugar cookies with the kids (already rolled and in the freezer), banana chocolate chip breads, pumpkin pies, apples pies, chocolate cupcakes-lots, candycane cookies, cherry wink cookies, and the list goes on!

    I love to make and decorate sugar cookies with my kiddos!

  11. Jana


    I have so many things on my holiday baking list I don’t know where to begin. Christmas cookies of course, I want to make a cheesecake, a chocolate tart, and homemade croissants to name a few. I don’t have any good cooling racks right now so it would be wonderful to win these!

  12. Lara


    Ah, holiday baking. Can’t get much better than that! This month I plan on making a tart, hopefully a chocolate one for thanksgiving. I have always wanted to make one, but have yet to. For the Christmas season, I plan on frosted sugar cookies of course! I also would love to try making a Christmas cake with fondant.
    I have no cooling racks right now. All my cookies cool on newspaper. Not the best! These racks would really help me out!

    I plan to have a baking session with my mom to make her traditional date pinwheel cookies for Christmas gifts for friends.

  14. Juel


    This month I’ll start baking for Christmas and for holiday parties. Wouldn’t that rack work well for flaky appetizers and cooling finger foods? Christmas cookies include mexican wedding cakes dusted in powdered sugar and peanut butter blossoms.

  15. Amber Mooney


    These would be perfect next month when I get started making all of my food gifts. We give food gifts to everyone except immediate family and I can use all the help and counter space I can get!

  16. Lyn


    I don’t have a plan yet but I know it will be simple. I’m not giving into holiday stress this year – nope… So if anything I plan to maybe make 2 types of cookies, something to munch on and maybe some type of quick bread. And a pie for Thanksgiving. Simple and easy! Thank you for the giveaway, these would be very helpful.

  17. Katie Walker


    We do so much baking around the holidays! Cookies, fudge, cupcakes, pies, brownies!

  18. sarah G


    I plan to make lots of cookies! I think I try to have the teen girls in my youth group over for a Christmas cookie evening. I also will be making a cheesecake for Thanksgiving. I’m sure I will see pies and cobblers in the near future. I just love this season and all the yummy things to make!

  19. Kelly


    I plan to make pumpkin bread, pumpkin carrot cake muffins and cornbread for hubby. Thanks for the chance!

  20. Jay


    We are going to make cheesecake, pumpkin pie and some banana bread this month!

  21. Leslie


    Ohh the pies. Pies for friends and family. I make some really mean pies!

  22. Tricia


    I plan on baking pumpkin bread, sugar cookies, brownies, mexican wedding cakes, and many more treats in the next few weeks. These would be great.

  23. Joanna


    I don’t plan on doing a lot of baking, but I am making baked Christmas ornaments from cinnamon and glue. I’m excited about it. I also plan to make breakfast cookies for my husband to take to work.
