Simple Pleasures Giveaway

Cornelia Guest’s Simple Pleasures will show you how to incorporate affordable, cruelty-free eating into your daily life and to serve that luscious, wholesome food to friends. Organized by season, each part begins with a terrific meal — a light spring lunch of chilled asparagus soup and quinoa salad; an alfresco summer dinner of veggie carpaccio and stuffed squash blossoms; a fall breakfast buffet of pecan waffles, faux buttermilk pancakes, and raspberry muffins; and a cozy winter’s dinner of shepherd’s pie with a chocolate tart for dessert. Each seasonal section contains recipes for beverages, soups, salads, pastas, side dishes, main courses, and an abundance of desserts that everyone will love. Special sections feature recipes for grains, greens, and beans. In “Notes from My Friends,” which appear throughout the opening chapters, chefs, doctors, Cornelia’s favorite veterinarian, and other health and food experts have contributed tips, advice, and eye-opening information.

Eggo FiberPlus Waffles Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is kolpin. Congrats!

I’m all about easy breakfasts. I’m getting two kids ready for school by myself, and I like to make sure they eat before they head out the door. That means I’m not making a 4 course breakfast. However, Eggo products are something they both enjoy eating!

We recently got to try out Kellogg’s Eggo FiberPlus Waffles. I’ve got one word for you: YUMMY! Or as my three year old said, “yummy in my tummy”. The Eggo FiberPlus Waffles provide an excellent source of fiber — you get 35% of the daily recommend value in every serving. The FiberPlus Waffles comes in two flavors: Buttermilk and Chocolate Chip. The buttermilk variety offers 35% of the recommended daily value of calcium (since I am lactose intolerant, I’m always looking for products that give an extra kick of calcium. I can’t tell you how happy I am to see this with these waffles!), and the chocolate chip variety provides 20% of the recommended daily value of the antioxidants vitamin E and zinc. Both varieties are also an excellent source of 10 or more vitamins and minerals.

Since my family and I love these so much, we have arranged for one lucky reader to try these also! I have arranged for one of you to win a box of the the Chocolate Chip Waffles and also a box of the Buttermilk ones too! Here’s what you need to do:
