daffy duck cinnamon



So... let's start my slow return to blogging with a giveaway, shall we?


*they are so cute, you just want to pinch their cheeks!

Most of you probably know who these two are, if not let me introduce you to the very talented Todd and Diane of White on Rice. On top of being talented, they are probably the most kind and generous people I have ever been in contact with. They have no problem answering questions and mentoring me with some of the most mundane stuff. Stuff I should have known. Stuff that's obvious to a 5 year old. I'm sure after my phone calls and emails they probably shake their heads in wonder going, "What are we going to do with her?"

A few weeks back they had a giveaway of some cinnamon they brought back from Vietnam. This giveaway had over two hundred entries and I won three sticks of this...



*bow down to the dastardly duo... cinnamon and her henchman, the micro-plane.

When Todd and Diane announced the winners they said...

"Congratulations! Now someone go make friends with Evil Chef Mom. Maybe she’ll share two of her other sticks with you!"


At first, I was like Daffy Duck in the above cartoon. You know the one where Bugs Bunny and Daffy are headed to Pismo Beach (all the clams you can eat) and Bugs and Daffy end up at Ali Baba's cave. Bugs was all like, "I should turned left at Albuquerque." and Daffy sees the treasure in the cave and goes all manic, screaming "It's mine, you understand? Mine, mine! All mine! Go, go, go! Mine, do you hear me? Out, out, out! Mine, mine, mine! Go away! There's only enough for me!"


Yeah, I did that and I'm ashamed. Todd and Diane have helped me out so much that I couldn't just hog it all to myself. So in the spirit of Christmas baking and good cheer, I'm giving away two of my three cinnamon sticks and some other goodies. All you have to do is leave a comment by Wednesday 12/3 by 9:00pm PST. It can be any comment.

For example:

If you want to discuss why you feel Hanna-Barbera cartoons are superior to Warner Brother cartoons. Go right on ahead. You are entered.

Recipe Ideas for cinnamon? You are entered.

Got a Black Friday Rant. You are entered.

If all you say is, "I have to have cinnamon now!" You are entered.




This cinnamon is beyond amazing. It tastes just like a red hot candy and is a revelation in your mouth. You will never use cinnamon from a jar again, that's how good it is. So make sure you enter!

Thanks for the giveaway - I love cinnamon and didn't even know you could grate it like nutmeg.

Da Bee's Knees said...

Warner Brothers smokes Hanna Barbera anyday!

And that's .....

ah bah dee, a bah dee, a bah dee...that's all folks!

Mary Beth said...

We quote that Daffy Duck clip all the time (in a family of 6 kids, you have to claim your stuff!) I'm just about to start making all my holiday cookies and the cinnamon would be perfect for them. And I admire you for sharing the wealth - for things that good, it's hard I know:)

Meg said...

I'm such a food newbie that I'm not sure what I would do with it other than add it to my homemade applesauce, but it sounds amazing!

Cheryl said...

Looks pretty cool, I love the folks at White on Rice as well, they are quite the funny duo!

Cheryl said...

Crap I was thinking of the two at Use Real Butter, I have never been to White on Rice's blog, thanks for sharing that gem!

Ty'sMommy said...

Oh yeah, you've got my attentions! I need some cinnamon NOW! :)

MeadowLark said...

I need some "spice" in my life today. So please enter me. Maybe I'll win and it'll cheer me up.

asthmagirl said...

Love me some Bugs and Daffy! And some cinnamon!

Magpie said...

Did you say cinnamon?

Kristin said...

Oh Jesus--don't get me started on the stupidity of the Black Friday hordes. I've been saying for years how distasteful it all is, and then this year, that Walmart worker was killed. I think the whole thing is awful.

But cinnamon? Not awful.

Julia said...

Ah, that was a good episode. :)

I'm going to Vietnam in a few weeks, so maybe I can bring back some of this amazing cinnamon and have a giveaway too!

MichelleB said...

Well, your description certainly makes me want some of that cinammon! Sounds lucious.

_ts of [eatingclub] vancouver said...

Oooh, your header (whisk photo and color scheme) is so nice! (I read your blog in a reader... so I don't see these things.)

Anyway, here's another chance for me to see if that cinnamon really tastes like candy!

melissa said...

Um, don't get me started on anything cartoon-related.

And you heathen up there? Da Bee's Knees? Yeah, you. Shhhhhh. ;)

By the by K, don't enter me. I wanted to leave a comment because, well, you're talking about cartoons, and Todd and Diane are AWESOME, but I don't necessarily need the cinnamon. What I mean is, other people would make better use of it than I.

jack's utter lack of surprise said...

I AM OUT OF FRESH CINNAMON AND I AM ON A CINNABUN BAKING BINGE!

haleysuzanne said...

OK, I am so tickled that you included this cartoon. I'm a particular fan of all the Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry cartoons directed by Chuck Jones, and this one is great. Just like that cinnamon. :)

Lisa said...

You sweet, sweet girl. What a nice thing to do. I vow that if I win the cinnamon sticks I will have a giveaway too and pass one along to someone else.

Spread the cinnamon love!!!

You are right, Todd & Diane are two of the nicest people I have come across in this world we call blogging.

Soccer Milf said...

I put cinnamon on everything. It's obscene, really. I want to try a new variety.

Alicia said...

I want to try this cinnamon because when I was a wee girl, there was this kid on the bus whose mom made cinnamon flavored toothpicks. They were the best and they tasted like the redhot candy you mentioned. I believe I could achieve a childhood fantasy if I had some of this cinnamon. Thank you!

The Yummy Mummy said...

If you give me the cinnamon, I will bake. And I don't bake, so that's how bad I'm jonesing for the cinnamon. So, if you give it to me, I'll bake something and make something savory. I promise. The baking won't be pretty but it will be cinnamony and luscious for sure. You can even order me to bake something specific. And maybe make me include my kids in the baking. Whatever hell you have up your sleeve is fine. Just put the cinnamon in a box and send that shit to Harlem.

That's all I gotta say.

Jena Lockwood said...

mmmmmm, love me some viet namese cinnamon.

noble pig said...

Oh ummm....I love cinnamon...pick me, pick me....is that good? Yippee!

Caroline said...

Cinnamon! Yeah baby...too bad I never win anything...but it's fun to throw my hat in the ring.

Rebecca (Foodie With Family) said...

I detest Black Friday. I don't buy things that day on principle.

..But onto something much more important. Warner Bros. animation is completely superior to Hanna Barbera. "Abra-ca-pocus" is vastly funnier than "Hey hey Boo boo." (Thanks, Krysta, for making me get my geek on publicly. But you bring up animation and this happens!)

I'd love some of that cinnamon!!!!

ChichaJo said...

Yes yes me wants some cinnamon! :) Love the White on Rice couple too :)

balladofyoko said...

I never win at these drawings, but if by some chance I do, I would make these with the cinnamon: http://www.spiltwine.amberhorizon.com/?p=147

HoneyB said...

I can only hope to be so lucky as to be the winner of this awesome sounding cinnamon! :)

KitchenKiki said...

scratch, scratch, scratch. Hmmm the scratch & sniff on my computer doesn't seem to be working correctly.

The smell of cinnamon is like nothing else!

Nice to see ya back.

Jude said...

I have a good feeling about winning this.

Shari@Whisk: a food blog said...

Love your photos!

Maria said...

If I said I was commenting for any reason other than to win some cinnamon ... it wouldn't be very true. ;)

Mari said...

I love cinnamon. Hoping I win so I can make some awesome cinnamon toast.

phillygirl64 said...

Hee! I always use that Daffy line (Mine! Mine! Mine!...)

I got a fever...and the prescription is more cinnamon!

Are you kidding me? Warner Brothers are the best - they smoke HB and Disney!!!

Caleb said...

I think if I won some cinnamon I'd start putting it on everything. Breakfast cereal, clam chowder, lasagna, my toothbrush...

Speaking of clam chowder, I'm lucky enough to live near Pismo and Splash Cafe and yes, it really is that amazing.

Anonymous said...

LOVEEE CINNAMON.

A little recommendation, I found these to be so delicious and useful in my kitchen: http://bajoseasonedsalts.com/

Cheers.

Grace said...

cinnamon is my obsession.
that is all.

lcsa99 said...

I haven't commented here in a while, but I thought this was worth it. If you give me the cinnamon it will go to a worthy cause! My man and I are baking snickerdoodles for his nephews who are alergic to everything! We have to use soy everything else, but the least they deserve is real fresh cinnamon, don't you think? ;)

Mama Goose said...

Mmmmmmmmm cinnamon. I need me some good cinnamon.

Glad to see you back :)

dara said...

i am obsessed with cinnamon!

Rooster said...

What would I do with a cinnamon stick, heck I do not even cook, but my monster-in-law does... I would definately put this on my Blog for all my Blog followers to hear about & see if I could getg some cookes made with it to share with others.

CookinG said...

My son is from Vietnam (adopted 10 years ago - hard to believe). I remember the cinnamon from there - I can smell it just by looking at your picture. Cinnamon is my son's FAVORITE spice - "everything is better with little bit of cinnamon" is what he tells me. He would put it on a hot dog if I let him!

Melthemom said...

I would love some cinnamon. I have only used the cheap stuff. I also love Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Yeah, but can you smoke it?

maybelle's mom said...

hmn, I would be grate-ful. Bad jokes count, right?

Anonymous said...

Me need cinnamon now.

Lisa said...

Ahhh, cinnamon! What a gorgeous intro to the Christmas baking season.

Sarah said...

Mmm, how cin-ful :) (Lame, but Maybelle's Mom got to the grate-ful pun ahead of me, and this is all I could think of!)

giz said...

You're right - they're cute and their blog is always fun. I mean, where else can you learn how to cut a jack fruit??? A cinnamon stick could keep me doing the dance of joy in front of Grace from A Southern Grace for at least 2 months....yee haa

Margie!! said...

Couldn't agree with you more about the cartoons. Excuse me while I go and add them to my wish list.

Cory said...

I freely admit it, I'm a cinammon giveaway male ho.

The second step is admission right?

TexasDeb said...

Aww how generous of you to share your coveted cinnamon sticks.

Reminds me of the Kliban cartoon where the courtly tom cat says to his sweetcat to be "If I had two dead mice I'd give you one!"

Debbie said...

When I was little, my friend used to tell me that her father worked for Hanna-Barbera. He actually worked for Michelin tires. Isn't that the beauty of being seven years old. If you want your dad to work for Hanna-Barbera - you just say it and in your mind it is so.

enlargedtoshowtexture said...

Next to food and cooking and eating. Bad cartoons are my favorite. Hanna-Barbera cartoons are superior to Warner Brother cartoons thanks to one word, Violence. Violence is not the answer, it is the question and the answer is yes. I grew up watching them and to this day I do not understand why Space Ghost was not arrested, beaten and left for dead on a planet somewhere. He flew about the galaxy a crazed vigilante with two instant child hostages with no powers and less common sense. I do not understand why somebody didnt call what ever planet the Herculoids were stuck on a loss and nuke it. They simply beat and killed anything landing on the planet that wasnt as blonde and pretty as they were. And a slingshot and a shield as weapons?? What kind of combination is that. Yet, these issues, these strange leaps of violence made from what I can only guess was using up old footage from the cutting room floor of Johnny Quest cartoons, makes them awesome. Your WB rabbits are cute, Foghorn Leghorn is a hoot, but put that boy I say put that boy on a floating moon in space and I reckon he'd get beat badder than a one legged man in a pick-up game of kick ball. Hanna-Barbera 1 WB none! Didnt think you would actually see this comment did ya?

laura m said...

cinnamon's my favorite!

Psychgrad said...

Ooh - a 2nd chance at cinnamon. Cool. I'd love just try some on toast with butter.

Me! said...

oh god i love cinnamon. i have some cinnamon sticks and i grind them up instead of the powdered stuff in a can. But these sound amazing.

katie said...

Me! Me! Me! I have about a million apple pies to make...

She Who said...

I'm probably too late to enter, so I just stopped by to say "Hi."

Music Food and Love said...

I love cinnamon! Have you tried it on some meat stews? It's delicious!
A friend of mine went to India this summer and brought me cinnamon sticks like those you have. The taste is something else, nothing to do with the normal ones we are used to.

white on rice couple said...

Good luck to everyone!
That's so nice and cool of you Krysta, to share the love.
Those are great photographs too. They really capture the beauty and essence of the cinnamon.....we can smell it....
