I love these things!

I love giving away free stuff. Probably because I love to win free stuff, especially cookbooks. And if you haven't read the comments for both this and the other cookbook giveaway, then you definitely need to. Because they are loaded with all sorts of great ideas for recipes.

Appetizers and tapas are very near and dear to my heart and I loved reading all of your comments. A lot of you seem to favor goat cheese and brie, which are absolute favorites of mine. Hummus also seemed to be a favorite and judging by the number of variations on my sidebar, I think you can tell it's a favorite of mine too.

Now onto the winner. The winner is MK99! Congratulations MK! Here is her entry:

We love tapas. We often make our own meals on the tapa style and of course love to have tapas parties.

There are so many to choose from but I have to fall back on one we love and love to serve.

Prosciutto and Parmesan Pinwheels

1 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
5 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
5 ounces Parmesan cheese, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons prepared mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with nonstick oil spray.
Roll the thawed pastry out onto a flat surface. Spread Dijon mustard to taste on the pastry sheets. Cover pastry with a layer of prosciutto, then cheese. Roll the sheets, beginning at the long side. Cut into 1 inch thick sections. Arrange the sections on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Sounds absolutely delicious!
To everyone else, thanks for playing and for your delicious recipes and ideals. I'm sure a few of them will be showing up on this blog over the next few weeks!

Wow! I am so excited to win. I know everyone says this - but I never win anything. I guess I can't say that anymore.

Did you get my email with the shipping address? I just remembered this because it has been a crazy couple weeks here.
