GIVEAWAY! Win a $25 Gift Card to Your Favorite Grocery Retailer!

While I greatly and sincerely appreciate each and every one of you, I honestly am not at all concerned with the number of public followers my blog accrues. This is something I love to do, and if just a few of my friends enjoy it too, that's great. However, I would really love to start doing reviews, giveaways and mass discount codes involving organic/natural/fair trade grocery products, and upping my following is a great way to get these companies excited and involved!

So with that said, and in the spirit of cooking healthfully but economically, I want to give one lucky follower of my blog a little help with the grocery bill while I work on the aforementioned project. To be entered into the drawing for a $25 gift card to your favorite grocery retailer, all you have to do is follow my blog via Google Friend Connect (see the right hand side of the page). If you do, you are automatically entered, and there is no need to comment below. You can also earn extra entries by referring your friends--if they follow my blog via Google Friend Connect and then comment below that "Jane Doe sent me," each comment will get you an extra entry, and there is no limit to the extra entries you can earn!


Giveaway ends on June 21st, 2011 at 9:00 pm central, and a winner will be chosen (via random.org) and announced shortly thereafter! :)

    I do have a question though - how are you drawing from the GFC followers? GFC aren't numbered and can change order in your GFC account or are you going by the new follower email notifications?

  2. Hi Darcy, thank you for popping over! So far my GFC followers do show up in the same order all of the time on my end, but I do also have record of the order in which everyone joined thus far, so if it ever does change, everyone will still be the same # for this giveaway, and then the comments will be added to the end. In the future, I will use the comments for all aspects of the giveaway--this time I am saving them for just the extra referral entries! :)

  4. Thanks for explaining - I was just curious in case you found a trick I hadn't yet! :)

  5. LOL--nope, no trick yet, so thankfully I'm just getting started and keeping my own list this time around is manageable! ;)

  6. Mama on a Green Mission sent me :) And so far, I really love your blog! I try to live healthy since I'm allergic to most preservatives and dyes--meaning I get sick all the time if I don't watch out--and it's always nice to find a blog with great, healthful recipes that don't tell me to buy a package of taco mix, or a box of cake mix, or anything else like that. So thanks for writing, and thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Thank you so much FishieLPK! I found the same thing when trying to find "healthful" recipes--they all called for so many overly-processed ingredients, and to each his own, but I much prefer using fresh, whole ingredients with as little processing as possible when I can! :)

  11. No one sent me, but I am glad to be here. I love black beans, and I am always trying to find recipes for meatless nights. I am psyched about your very veggie black bean enchiladas.

    :)

    I am a follower, but should I be fortunate to win, this is my email:

  13. Thank you Kalea, I am glad you found me! :) The very veggie black bean enchiladas are definitely a new favorite--my older son went for seconds after I told him to stop inhaling his food, and even my younger son ate most of what was on his plate, which is an improvement for him! ;)
