See’s Holiday Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winners are Shilo Beedy, Jane, Jackie, Maja Meza, and James Smith. Congrats!

As usual, See’s Candies does not disappoint for the holidays. They have tons of great offerings, and there truly is something for everyone to pick from. My husband loves their white mint truffles. I personally am a fan of the Marshmallow Trees. However, there are gift baskets and gift box sets you can give to others too. There is a sampler pack, gift boxes of chocolate, and even ones that have nuts in them!  You can’t go wrong with anything you get from See’s.  It’s high quality great candies that everyone loves.

Mama Says, No More Frozen Pizza!

You have to get the Mama says, “No More Frozen Pizza!” cookbook. This is the coolest cookbook I have ever owned. This cookbook has 24 nutritious recipes that are designed for new cooks! Now, the first thing that makes this cookbook unique is that it is in the shape of an order out pizza box. It looks like a pizza. When you open the box, you will be for a surprise. I know I was! Each recipe is on paper that is shaped like a pizza (circle). You can easily go in there and grab the recipe you want. The first thing you see is a picture of a pizza. When you flip it over, there is a nice little forward about the book. Plus, there is also some advice: “All we ask is that you wipe off the recipe cards before you store them, do the dishes within one week’s time, and send a “thank you” not to whomever sent you this recipe box. Oh, and call your mother once in awhile”.
Now, each recipe card is pretty unique. There is a picture one side of the card, and all of the recipes look absolutely delicious. When you flip the card over, it tells you what the recipe is, how long it takes to make, and how many it will feed. They also have an ingredient list, how to make list (preparation), and equipment. I have to giggle that under equipment they include things like a can opener, large knife, and large frying pan with lid.

There are several awesome recipes we will trying this next week are Dad’s Special Meat Loaf, Italian Roasted Potatoes, and Southwest Chicken Soup. These easy to make recipes are perfect for new cooks (and not so new cooks) with limited time and limited budgets.

Calling all Foodies: Blue Egg Photography Giveaway

What better way to show the world that you are true foodies than to write notes on your very own foodie stationary?  Blue Egg Photography has some of the best food photography out there.  The paper these cards are made with good heavy card stock.  They scream quality to you!  The pictures are so good and so realistic that my 15 month old son keeps trying to eat the cards.  I will be honest, I almost hate to use these cards, because they are so pretty.

If you want to impress your family and friends, you definitely need to get a pack of these for yourself.  You can order them one by one or just get a 12 pack of them.  The 12 pack has all 8 photos in there randomly (so you will have some repeats.  However, each pack is chosen randomly, so you won’t get the same ones each time!  This stationary also comes with the envelopes and is packaged in a clear gift box.  This is certainly perfect for any foodies out there.

Blue Egg Photography has been so kind that they are giving me the opportunity to give away one of these gift boxes to one of my readers!  I know you all want these, so here is what you have to do:
