Flirty Aprons review and giveaway!


One of my favorite parts about the holidays is the food. I always look forward to big family meals and making delicious treats for neighbors. With all this food on my mind I realize I will be spending allot of my time in the kitchen. I have to admit that this part doesn't excite me as much as eating all the food does. However, if I am going to slave away cooking this season, I might as well do it in style.

This Months Discount:

Flirty Aprons adds to the fun of cooking with their stylish aprons. They also offer a variety of aprons for women, men and children. Since cooking with mommy is a great activity for mothers and daughters, Flirty Aprons also has matching aprons. Right now when you purchase a Women's Original apron, you can also get any Girl's Original apron for 40% off regular price. Just use the coupon code TOGETHER. You can find sales like this and more throughout the whole year on Flirty Aprons site.

Review:

Flirty Aprons offered me a free apron of my choice to review. I loved being able to look through all of their aprons. They have a great selection. I chose the "Scarlet Blossom Apron". This apron is absolutely beautiful. I love the design and colors. The apron fits great and is said to fit all sizes. I was also very impressed with the make and quality of the apron.

To Buy:
Flirty Aprons makes a great gift for a parent, sister or bride to be. You can purchase aprons online at www.flirtyaprons.com or at any of their retail locations. You can find these locations under the Flirty Aprons store locations on their site.

For holiday gifts we love to "can" quick breads - bake them in a jar and seal them. 1/2 pints are cute and go in a basket with other goodies, and are a great size for 1 or 2. We have a lot of elder couples we give to. Also this is a great gift for our young daughter to give. Something she can make.

ashbroco said...

I love them all, but I'd have to say that the Women's Original Chic Pink Apron is probably my favorite!

I love to make peanut butter fudge for friends and family.

Josh said...

The treat I love to bake for neighbors and friends is cake balls. They taste like delicious truffles, but are so much easier!

Bake a box of cake mix according to directions. Let it cool about 5 minutes. While it is still hot, crumble the cake into a clean mixing bowl. Mix in a container of frosting. Stir until it forms a mushy mixture. Cool in the fridge for about an hour. Form balls of the cake/frosting mixture. Let them set in the freezer about 30 minutes. Dip in melted chocolate.

This recipe is great and can easily make several different flavors of "candy."

Can't share my fudge recipe, but can share my Chocolate Chocolate Truffles.
Grind/crumb and entire package of Oreos. Mix in one pkg. softened cream cheese. Mix really well until a chocolate ball is formed.
Roll into small cookie balls the size of a dime. Refrigerate 20-30 min. to set the cookie balls.
Melt chocolate almond bark and cover the cookie balls in almond bark.
Cool and serve.
