La Cense Beef Review and Giveaway

My family and I got to try some of the best beef we have ever had last night. We cooked up a couple of New York Strip steaks on our Foreman grill, and “awesome” is the only word I can use to describe them.  The directions said that they would cook quicker than a regular steak, and they definitely did.  What surprised me was how tender these steaks were.  Will (my 18 month old) is picky about meat.  If it has a weird texture or if it is too hard to chew, he won’t eat it.  However, he cleaned his plate off last night!

La Cense Beef is 100% grass fed, and I have to believe that is what makes these steaks so good.  Their steaks are  lower in fat and calories than conventional beef too.  It is also high in Omega-3 fatty acids (good for heart health) and low in the Omega-6 fatty acids (which can contribute to heart disease, cancers and depression).  It is also has much higher beta-carotene in it.  Lastly, La Cense Beef contains no pesticides, antibiotics or hormones.

Now, are you hungry yet?  If you are, I am giving away three prize packs of some of this awesome La Cense Beef.  Each prize pack will have 2 lbs ground steak and 2 petite sirloin steaks. Interested? Here’s what you need to do:

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:
