a good weekend + a marshmallow giveaway

July 16, 2012 |  Category:   life the biz

Giveaway Update: Contest is closed! Thanks for all your sweet comments and entries, and congrats to Grace, Nuree and Lauren!


Sometimes you just have to abandon all plans of working through the weekend to just enjoy the weekend. I had all these notions of “catching up” since Mark was going to be around for the bulk of both days and the girls are out of camp next week, but I quickly ditched that plan in favor of family fun times. The weekend started with a sidewalk party with our neighbors on Friday night and ended with a fantastic last minute barbeque party with some old and new friends in the neighborhood. It’s summer after all, right? And I feel like everyone else is on summer time, clients included. Not a whole lot is getting done and nobody seems to be in a rush. That’s fine by me.


We actually did work a few hours each day by being part of Paper Magazine’s SuperDuper Market located inside Chelsea Market over the weekend. For some reason I tweeted and posted it on Facebook as well as our website, but forgot to write about it here, hmmm. So sorry! But thanks to all who came out to see us! People from out of town, especially. It’s really great to meet people and match faces to names of those who have bought cookies from us and commented on the blog for years. We really appreciate it!
As a small way of saying thanks, we’re going to give away 2 packages of marshmallows (we’ll pick the flavors) to 3 people. You have until tomorrow, Tuesday 9pm EST to leave a comment below and we’ll pick 3 random winners. Make sure you leave your email so that we can contact you. Good luck! (we can only ship to US readers, wah, so sorry!)

    If there is any chance you ship those to Toronto (I’ve tried ordering cookies in the past with little luck), I’d be so happy to win 🙂

  • Tina July 16, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    it’s funny how, as a tourist, i might want to seek out the bloggers/interweb people i follow moreso than the celebrity/movie stars i read about in the papers. i’ll be in ny in sept and hope to make it to a W&S booth somewhere.

    and, i like marshmallows, so i’m commenting here.

  • Sara Jensen July 16, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Marshmallows were in my wedding vows.

  • Kris July 16, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Would love a bite of those marshmallows! Have never won anything so crossing my fingers.

  • Neisha Cedeno July 16, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    I’m gonna make it out there one day soon. I’ve been meaning to go with my family but have yet to have the time. Love your blog.

  • Jessica C. July 16, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Would be great to try some of your marshmallow goodies! And I’m with you on delaying work when it’s summer outside 🙂

  • Julia July 16, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    too bad you can’t ship popsicles 😉 maybe someday!

    glad you had a good weekend.

  • Jenna July 16, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    @Linn Maria aww, yeah…I just remembered that I needed to clarify the international shipping thing. Can only ship marshmallows to US addresses because of unpredictable shipping times.

  • Maureen July 16, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Would love to win some of your awesome marshmallows! Thanks, Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

  • Rain July 16, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    i second the popsicles comment! i craved mangoes and thai iced tea for days after seeing those.

  • Natalie Hotaling July 16, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Sounds yummy!

  • Muoi July 16, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    I received a gift box of your cookies and marshmallows and they were delicious!

  • Justine July 16, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    I love your marshmallows! I bought the cardamom flavor at a Dean & Deluca (or was it Brooklyn Flea?) while I was visiting NY last year and have been thinking about them ever since.

  • April July 16, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    I’ve bought your baked goods as gifts several times but never any for myself. Would love to win.

  • Alicia July 16, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    I’d love to have a good excuse to get the fire pit going.

  • Andrea W July 16, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    Yum! Marshmallows! Fingers crossed.

  • Chris July 16, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    All your baked (and frozen) goods look so tasty. Would love to try some. Ps. Your photos make me miss NYC. You guys are a great ny blog to follow.

  • Laura July 16, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    I would love to finally get to try some of your marshmallows! They look delicious!

  • Donna Clegg July 16, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    love your blog and have been dying to taste the marshmallows!

  • KathrynT July 16, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    Yes please! My 2 boys have only known the plain, little white marshmallows (sad, I know). Keeping my fingers crossed for them… Oh, who am I kidding? I’ll share one with my husband and each of the boys and then hide the rest for myself–hah!

  • Melissa July 16, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    I’ve DREAMED about trying your marshmallows. Maybe this is my chance! 🙂

  • Tina July 16, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Would love to taste some of your marshmallows! Enjoy reading the blog!

  • Heather Zdroik July 16, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    Obviously like everyone else here I would love to win some of your marshmallows! I keep thinking I should just break down one of these days & order some of your stuff but it’s hard to justify buying someone else’s treats when I’m a pastry chef too & could make them myself. Although it would be good to “compare notes” by sampling your products. So far this year I’ve made these new marshmallow flavors: root beer float (complete with vanilla bean top), key lime pie & lemon meringue. Keep up the good work!! 😉

  • Susan July 16, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    Claudine is so cute and great pic of the Highline. I missed your kids yesterday. Left a comment on FB. Thanks!

  • Baltina July 16, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    What a lovely giveaway, it would be such a sweet treat to share some marshmallows with friends on our stoop for a picnic. *Fingers crossed*

  • Christina Z. July 16, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    I’ve been wanting to try your marshmallows! And I have a camping trip coming up. (Exotic s’mores, anyone?) Pick me! 🙂

  • Faith @ Ordinary Mommy Design July 16, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    I still remember the first time I came across your marshmallows. They look so dreamy!

  • Janet July 16, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    yay for marshmallows!

  • Jhope July 16, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    Yuummmm. 🙂

  • Sarah July 16, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    I would LOVE to win this! They sound so yummy!

  • April July 16, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    I’m pretty sure I saw y’all on the subway platform Saturday evening, but I wasn’t sure. My friend and I just got back from tour and were going to Bed-Stuy to check out an apartment and were tired and frazzled so I may have been seeing things, but if it was you, the girls are beautiful and well behaved!

  • Meghann @ Fuzzy.Little.Wishballs July 16, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    Sometimes, I think its healthy to throw responsibility to the wind for the sake of sanity. Sounds like your weekend was fun, refreshing and memory huilding.

    And did someone say marshmallows?!

  • lisanne July 16, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    i have actually never tried marshmallows that weren’t, as they say, “jet-puffed” – i would love to try yours!

  • Buena July 16, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    Oh nice….We have tried your cookies before, but would love to try some of your marshmallows!!! Sounds like you have some original flavors. Cheers!

  • Micaela July 16, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    I’ve never tried home-made marshmallows, it seems like yours would be the ones to try!

  • Heather M July 16, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Oh yes please! I’ve given away your goods as presents but never had any for myself! The gifts got rave reviews, of course!

  • Bobbi July 16, 2012 at 3:45 pm
