GIVEAWAY & INTERVIEW WITH PICKYME!


Thank you Trish, for joining The Bakin_Goddesses for such a HUGE PARTAY! We hope you have as much fun as we do. We know the readers will enjoy getting to know a little bit about you with these little questions. It’s all about fun this time so let your hair down, grab your favorite drink, put your feet up on the desk and have some fun with these. (Shauni) *Grabbing a drink looking at Kim* Oh you meant them Sorry *laughing*
Let the Interview Begin -- Bwahahahahaha:

Cats or Dogs? ( Hey what about Birds and lizards? )

I have a dog and a cat. But my dog steals my heart. She is a big baby.

Salty or Sweet (This of course means when you’re “playing” because this isn’t an adult Goddess site for nothin’)? Chocolate?

Salty, fried pickles, enough said.

Vampires or Werewolves (Of course you can choose “other” but you have to elaborate *snickering*)?

I have to go with Werewolves. Something about a hot blooded, big alpha male.. whew..

Fireman or Cowboy?

Cowboy! Yeah Haw!( is it getting hot in here?!)

Hairy or Smooth (Body hair)?

Personally, I like my man hairy.. a again werewolf thing. But with my art.. smooth all the way.

Clean Shaven or Stubble?

Stubble!

Diet or Regular soda (Or....if you’re like me, Kimberly, you’re stuck on Powerade Zero)?

Regular Soda. Diet is a dirty word.

Fruit or Veggies (Or Chocolate)?

CHOCOLATE

Coffee or tea (Or Chocolate)?

Coffee with Chocolate creamer

The song that is most annoying when it sticks in your head -- sorry had to do it.

That Dr.Pepper commercial song.. Let's have a good time.. Gah! Drives me nuts!

Apple or Microsoft?

Both for different things. I love my Ipad..

Drama or Comedy or anything with Gerard Butler -- What Shauni? He’s Hawt! What Kim?*wiping drool* I love Gerard but what about Jason Momoa ooooohhh Or Charlie Hunnan? OOH Shauni! Charlie!!! We Loves Us some Jax! SOA! All the way baby! I guess we should let the guest answer the question though, huh? (tv, movies)?

All of the above!! Gerbear is all mine!! Yummm

Spring or Fall (Fall -- cuz I can beat him to the floor! *snickering*)?

Fall, I can hide my extra pounds in sweaters! Yay!

Sedan or Sports Car (Hey! I live in Texas! Where’s the truck suggestion???)?

I have a Ford Edge and it is the bomb! I could drive it all day...

Tattoos or no Tattoos?

Tats all the way. I have 4 in undisclosed locations.

Favorite splurge food -- Tacos, Pizza, Cheeseburger (Or Chocolate peanut butter swirl FUDGE)????

Wine and Extra Sharp Chedder Cheese, with Toasted Bruschetta rounds! Great.. now I am hungry!!

What dish do you make perfect?

Hmm.. Perfect? Chicken Cutlets.. with a slice of Lemon on top. Perfecto!

What dish have you messed up completely by burning or over cooking it?

I don't think I have time to list all of the messed up dishes!! My poor family... I am good at cooking, baking is not for me, I ALWAYS burn the cookies! So normally, we just eat the raw dough.

Can you give us your favorite Christmas cookie recipe?

My fave Christmas cookie are those shortbreads with jelly in the middle. I don't know what they are called, but I can't stop with just one!

Now is the part where we let you do some shameless self promotion of your artwork. Please tell the readers something about what you’re currently working on or what has just been released. We’re shameless when it comes to pimpin’ new stuff!
Well, I am a cover artist. I have had the pleasure to work on so many wonderful author's books this year! I pinch myself every day!
