Google Nexus 7 Tablet {Giveaway}

It is the time of the year that I bake a lot getting ready for the Holidays. For me baking is total relaxation. I listen to Christmas music and prepare treats for friends and family. It is my passion and in another life I will own a bakery. 

If you would ask me what is your favorite tool in the kitchen, I would answer a tablet. I am using it all the time to cook and bake. I can browse food websites, blogs, read food magazines, watch TV shows and have quick access to recipes on my blog.

Recently Staples Canada sent me a Google Nexus 7 tablet. I have been using it for couple days and I am very please with the tablet so far. The Google Nexus 7 is one of the best tablet on the market right now.  It is so popular that many stores are sold out at the moment.
