How about a giveaway??



Hello and Happy New Year! I hope that everyone is enjoying this new decade. We have had, as most people I imagine, REALLY cold weather which closed down schools last week. My poor sous chef #1 was so angry that more winter break was happening. I assured her that some day she'll pray for a snow day, but that did little to help. Luckily, we have had a full fridge and pantry and so I have actually been baking and accumulating recipes to post!

I'll give you a minute to take that in. Yup, I'm gonna post more. AND, it isn't even my New Year's resolution! More on that one later.

First I have to share that I have a giveaway, but I am apprehensive about it. A while back I was working with due maternity. They offered a gift certificate for one of my readers. I did what I was asked to do, posted the giveaway, and notified the rep of the winner. To my knowledge, she still hasn't gotten her prize, so frustrating. I mean, how is anyone supposed to believe that I am actually going to give something away? However, this giveaway is from a reputable business that I know follows through. That said, I am still a little nervous.


Toward the end of December, I received a pair of coupons to try some Pillsbury Crescent Rolls as well as three serving plates My Blog Spark. I was asked to try one of three appetizer recipes, I chose the bacon-cheese tartlets.

I followed the recipe as best I could, but I would say that using the rolls instead of the sheets proved problematic. It was hard to roll out and make the size needed for the recipe. I ended up with a few less than the recipe and they didn't turn out nearly as cute. BUT, it was a project for both sous chefs and I and throughly enjoyable. Even if they didn't turn out looking so great (which is why there is no picture!).

I used cheddar instead of swiss, but kept the rest of the recipe the same. I'll definitely try it again. It made for a cute breakfast option that had everything the youngins' love!

The folks at Pillsbury and My Blog Spark provided a second gift set with a two coupons for free Pillsbury Crescents as well as the serving plates to give away to one of you.

Ready to win?

I like oatmeal. But my kids like (I'm embarrassed to say) ramen noodles.

Melanie said...

During the work week I like a banana and some yogurt or cottage cheese - I can grab them as I run out of the house and eat them at my desk. On the weekend I love whatever breakfast my husband makes for me :)

During the week at work I eat oatmeal. Fills me up and I don't get tempted to eat snacks. On the weekends I am in love with Kashi's wild blueberry cereal and eat that. I'll also make a hearty breakfast on the weekends every so often for my family.

What a FUN giveaway (and tasty too).

Let's see... I would have to say that I prefer doughnuts for breakfast (I know that's horrible but it's my new thing). I get one doughnut per week. Every other day it's healthy stuff... but that one day I get my doughnut is by far my favorite!!

Oatmeal is the ultimate indulgence because I hardly ever have time to make it.

I have to admit that my very favorite breakfast is cold pizza but barring not having any, it would be a nice toasted everything bagel and cream cheese.

I would love a breakfast sandwich.. mmm

Tessica said...

you can never go wrong with biscuits and gravy but my most favorite: sausage links wrapped in homemade pancakes (made with a very thin batter so they can wrap and stay in place around the sausage!)

Fried country ham in an english muffin with a fried egg is the best breakfast (or dinner!) ever! :)
