100th Post Giveaway!!

Can you believe I'm already at my 100th post? I would like to thank everyone who stops by. I'm thankful to all my followers and passer-bys leaving comments. I have always loved to cook, but didn't start my blog sooner because I didn't think anyone would be interested in what I was cooking or had to say. Again, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I saw this Taste of Home Prize Winning Recipes book while standing in the check out. Since I always write the recipe titles down (to look up online later), but don't buy the books I figured I had better get it to help me not feel so guilty! It has over 2oo recipes. Can I enter my own giveaway? Maybe I should just keep it, you don't really want me to do a giveaway anyway, right? I'm tempted... but I think it will be a fun way to say thank you to all of you.

I'm probably going to do this all wrong, so bare with me! If you would like to win this great book you need to:
1. Leave me a comment with your favorite recipe. If you have your favorite recipe posted on your blog already, just post the link... if not take an extra 2 minutes and type it out for me (Please).
2. If you become a follower you will receive an extra chance, just send me a comment saying you're now a follower. If you were already a follower just leave another comment saying you're already a follower.
3. If you mention my giveaway on your blog with a link back to my site you will get another chance. Just leave me a comment saying you posted a comment linking back to my site so I know.

The winner will receive the Taste of Home Prize Winning Recipes cookbook PLUS I will be cooking your favorite recipe and posting it to my blog! I can't wait to read your favorite recipes! This giveaway will last until April 17, which is Friday.... Now get busy posting those recipes :)

Wow!!! 100 posts -- What a fun celebration!!! Congrats to my new foodie-friend!!! :o) I love checking out your blog every day, I feel like we have a lot in common. Both from small towns - I even grew up in a smaller town than the one I'm living in now. Both love Taste of Home!!! When I was newly married, living in England, before I knew of their magazine - that's what we used... Taste of Home Cookbooks!!! Now days, I just surf through food blogs - so, a lot of my favorite recipes are from other people. Here's one that's ours, Southwestern Chicken Enchiladas... http://threeonfood.blogspot.com/2007/11/whats-your-favorite-enchilada-recipe.html Step 2... I'm already a follower, just recently though. Now, on to step 3... ;) Be back later!!! ;)

My favorite recipe to date would have to be the "Deluxe Grilled Cheese Sandwich". http://rachelvsthekitchen.blogspot.com/2009/04/deluxe-grilled-cheese-sandwich.html

Of course, a close second would be the "Oven Fried Chicken". http://rachelvsthekitchen.blogspot.com/2009/03/oven-fried-chicken.html

Congrats on your 100th post :)

ok let's try this again... trying to post with the link let see how it goes... sorry I deleted my last one, I wasn't pleased with it LOL But it will probably turn out the same so here goes anyway... My favorite recipe is linked to my blog here for my french toast, but not just regular french toast. Banana Pecan French Toast with Caramel Glaze it is the best!

Brenda Campbell said...

I am already a follower... I love what you do here! I thought the same as you did that no one would want to know what I was cooking or what I had to say, but I was wrong as well. Keep up the good work Heidi!!

Congratulations on your 100th post, that is a lot of cooking lady! I've been a follower for a while now and I enjoy visiting your blog every morning (I posted a link to your give away under my focaccia recipe today.) I think my favorite recipe on MY blog has to be the Hungarian goulash with homemade pasta. It is delicious and strikes so many nostalgic chords. You can see the recipe if you go the the archives listed on the right side of my page and click Marach 2009. Good luck with your giveaway and keep the recipes coming.

Congrats on your 100th post!
I had a hard time choosing which recipe to share. I picked one that I posted before I hardly had any readers, so very few have seen it. I adore this bread and could eat the whole thing myself. (But I don't) ;)

Here is mine: http://norahsrecipes.blogspot.com/2009/02/chicken-paprikash-ii.html
Its a recipe from my childhood. I am now a follower of your blog.

Deborah said...

I like to make home-made ravioli, and it's very easy: ricotta cheese (which I also make), some chopped fresh parsley, salt'n'pepper to taste, stir well. Put about a teaspoon on a wonton wrapper; wet your finger and run it around the edge of the wrapper; place another wrapper on top, being careful to eliminate any air pockets and pressing down on the edges (the water you used acts as glue, but only if you use it on only one side). Cook in salted boiling water until it floats to the top; remove and drain. Top with your favorite sauce. asthenight at gmail dot com

Congrats on your 100th post, Heidi! I'm such a slacker, I've been meaning to enter your give away for a few days. I'm already a follower, of course.

For my favorite recipe, I'm going to say the Chocolate Glaze from a recent post on my blog (http://thisstopwilloughby.blogspot.com/search?q=chocolate+glaze) because I use it so often. I've used it for everything from cakes and cupcakes, to dipped strawberries and pretzels.

tatertot374 said...

Thank you for a great giveaway! I would love to win. My favorite recipe from the kids is sugar bread - take a piece of bread butter it then sprinkle sugar and then put in the oven for a few minutes until the bread is somewhat like toast..Simple but tasty. Thank you!
