Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.comThis giveaway is now over. The winner is Denise B. Congrats!

” alt=”” width=”240″ height=”180″ align=”left” />Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves are wraps for cupcakes that transform standard cupcakes into virtually anything. Their decorative self-adhesive cupcake wrappers instantly transform cupcakes into popcorn tubs, gumball machine, sushi, and ice cream cones. Their wraps are resistant to grease and oily substances, are earth friendly, and wipe clean if things get a bit messy in the kitchen! They have over 70 designs/themes to pick from, and they can personalize and customize them for you. Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves have been featured on Rachel Ray Magazine, and they are proud winners of the Most Innovative Exhibitor Award at the 2010 July CA Gift Show in Los Angeles.

Now, how easy are these to use?  Madison and I made muffins yesterday (with cupcake sleeves on them).  It was a great snow day project.  The Roundabout easily goes on.  Madison was able to put it on the muffin that is in this picture.  She is 7.  If she can do it, anyone can.  I loved that my directions included how to make frosting so you can frost the top to look like a bun!  Even though we didn’t do that, Madison loved these!  They are soooo cute!

Since these are so easy to use and cute too, I’ve arranged for one of my lucky readers to get some of their own!  Here’s what you need to do:

SmartShopper Review and Giveaway

This contest is over.  The winner is Michelle. Congrats!

Every so often a product comes out that I seriously don’t know how I lived without it.  The SmartShopper is that product for me.  I can’t tell you how many times I have been working on a shopping list to have it disappear to who knows where.  Then I have to restart my list, and I have no idea what was on there.  I also have had my list walk off with little children who are trying to help (even though they don’t know how to read and write).  Now, if you have kids, you all know what I am talking about.  However, the SmartShopper really is my answer to this.  The SmartShopper is an automated grocery organizer that allows you to add items to your shopping list by simply speaking into it. Yes, it is seriously that easy. You can edit and customize your SmartShopper using the easy-to-read LED display, and SmartShopper will automatically sort your items alphabetically. Now, there are 2,500 things already listed in here that are categorized. There is going to be something you need that isn’t listed. No problem. You can easily add your custom entries. The best part: when you are ready to go grocery shopping, hit the button that says print. It will print you your list printed out into categories!  You have no idea how much time this saves me.  I use to make my list and then rewrite it that way!  You can also wall mount this or stick it on your refrigerator (which is what I did).  I literally just walk around the kitchen and figure out what we need.  I hit record, say the item, select the item it thinks I said, and then repeat. That’s it! Now, if you are interested in purchasing a SmartShopper can use the exclusive code LM12398 until December 31 to receive $5 off your order. Also, all orders placed between now and December 31 will receive free ground shipping (although be sure to order before December 18, if you want the SmartShopper by Christmas).

Now, if you’d like to win one of these for yourself (or someone else), here’s what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I want to know what feature the SmartShopper has that you love.
2. Twitter about this contest. Please leave me your username so I can verify.
3. Stumble this post. If you don’t know what Stumble Upon is, please read Lori’s post at Blogging Cents. She explains it extremely well.
4. Add this post to other social media sites like Digg, Kirtsy, Blogging Zoom, Reddit, Propeller, Etc.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce

I love when I find a product that we can use on several items and in recipes.  Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is one of those products.  Not only can you use it in recipes such at meatloaf (more on that later), but you can use it on steak, hamburgers, pork, and chicken.  Personally, I am a ketchup person, but I may have found my ketchup replacement.

My husband made their meatloaf recipe the first night we had this.  I don’t normally care for meatloaf at all, so I wasn’t thrilled to be trying this sauce on something like that.  However, I was impressed.  The meatloaf was not dry, and it was awesome.  Not once did I feel the need to dip it in ketchup.  My kids even asked for seconds!  My husband wanted to know if there were more recipes we could try!  It is just as good on steaks and hamburgers too.

Country Bob has several other products you can try also:  BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt, and Spice All Purpose Sauce.  If they are as good as the All Purpose Sauce, then these are winners too!  Now, their product is good, but how about their site?  I love that too.  It is super easy to navigate.  You can easily find recipes to try and retail locations close to your house besides a ton of other stuff.  I found several local grocery stores by me that carry this besides the one I normally go to.  If you check out their online store, all of their products have free shipping!  If you are looking for a present, they have a cookbook and gift pack that would work out great!

Now, because I liked this product so much, I asked if I would be able to give a couple of my readers a chance to try this.  Of course, they said yes!  So Country Bob’s will be sending 2 lucky readers 2 bottles of their All Purpose Sauce.  What do you have to do to win this?

1.  Leave a comment on this post.  Check out Country Bob’s site and tell me what recipe you would like to try.  One comment please and let me know everything you did on that comment.  If you don’t list a feature, you are not eligible to win.
2. Stumble this post. If you don’t know what Stumble Upon is, please read Lori’s post at Blogging Cents. She explains it extremely well.
3. Vote for this post on other social media sites. One extra entry for each social media site you vote for this on.  (I’ll be adding some links to make this especially easy for you to vote — Digg, Propeller, Reddit, Mixx, Kirtsy, Blogging Zoom, Entreview)
4.  Twitter about this contest.  Please leave me your Twitter name in your comment.
