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.

Since I love See’s and I know you all love See’s, I’ve got 5 gift cards for See’s Candies that can be used on a pound of candy.  Here’s what you need to do to win one:

Emealsforyou Giveaway!

If you are a busy mom like me, you definitely need EmailsforYou in your life.  This is an online service that helps you do customizable web based meal planning.  They will help you with recipes, shopping lists, wine pairings (I seriously needed this), techniques, and just overall ideas to help you!  You can get all of this for one year for $36!  Now, if you use the code COOKIN-23, I can save you an additional $8!  You will not find all of this elsewhere for this low of a price!  Think of it this way — this is just the cost of a dinner at a restaurant.  Cut that out, and you’ve got meal planning made easy for a whole year!  My personal favorite part of this site is that it will scale the recipes down for you (you can go as low as 2 people).  I personally hate having a recipe and standing there trying to figure out the math to cut it down (it has been a long time since I have had to divide fractions).  Now, since I have such great readers, I am able to give away 3 ten year memberships to their site!

How to Enter:  I need to know is your favorite recipe to make.  The recipes should be:

  • makeable in 30 -40 minutes,
  • using products and ingredients that you would normally have around the house,
  • something you have made (no downloads from websites).

Your recipe also needs to fit under one of the categories listed here.

Besides the free memberships, the winners will have their recipes published both on the Emailsforyou blog and their site.  You will be given credit for the recipes on the sites too. I will also be mentioning the winners on a post on here with credit to you for a great recipe.  The judges for this contest will be me, EmealsForYou, Elizabeth from MomCooks.net, and Val from Fun, Crafts, and Recipes.

I’ll be running this contest until Dec. 15th at 8:00pm CST, so good luck.  I am looking forward to some new ideas to be making this holiday season!
