****Contest Closed*****”It’s Not You, It’s Brie” Book Giveaway

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Kirstin Jackson, author of  ” It’s Not You, It’s Brie:  Unwrapping America’s Unique Culture of Cheese”.   I had a lot of fun chatting with Kirstin.  It could be because I love cheese.  I love to shop for cheese, I love to smell cheese as its cooking, I love to eat cheese, I love pairing cheese with wine….you get the idea.  Right?  I LOVE cheese.  But, I discovered something else about myself recently.  I also love reading about America’s cheese culture.  And, I think you will too.

I have one (1) copy of “It’s Not You, It’s Brie:  Unwrapping America’s Unique Culture of Cheese” to give away. Would you like to provide it with a new home?

TO ENTER

To enter the giveaway, just answer the following question in the “Speak Your Mind” section at the bottom of this post:

“What is the best cheese you have ever eaten?”

Are you one of those souls who enjoy a simple, aged cheddar?  Or do you – like me – prefer warm brie on a gourmet cracker?  Perhaps you are a squeeze cheese enthusiast ( I won’t judge!) or a cheese gourmand who has a cheese monger on speed dial.  Any way you slice it, I want to know the best cheese you’ve eaten!

Note:  If you are lactose intolerant, or just don’t like cheese, no problem!  Just say something along the lines of “hello” and you’re good to go.

THE RULES

One entry per person, please.

Giveaway begins Monday November 5, 2012 and ends Thursday November 15, 2012 at 8 pm CST.

The winner will be chosen by Random.org and announced on Friday November 16, 2012.

** CONTEST CLOSED**Teatulia Black Tea Giveaway !!!

As you all know, I recently interviewed Linda Appel Lipsius from Teatulia Tea.

I encourage you to check out their website by clicking here, Teatulia Info, for more information on the background of Teatulia’s garden, the health benefits that it offers and where it is available for purchase.

*** CONTEST CLOSED*****Chocolalala CD Giveaway

My grandson, Teddy, LOVES music.  More to the point — he loves to dance.  When we were introduced to Mister G’s music for children, we knew Teddy would have a blast.  The songs are catchy, Teddy loves the beat, and his mommy loves the fact that it’s a good way to introduce him to Spanish.  Recipient of a Parent’s Choice Gold Award, Chocolalala spans a wide range of musical styles from bossa nova to ska, funk to folk, rap to pop.  Teddy enjoyed dancing to all of them!  I think the child ( or children) in your life ( and, perhaps, your inner child) will enjoy it as well.

I have two (2) copies of Chocolalala by Mister G to giveaway. 

TO ENTER

To enter the giveaway, just answer the following question in the “Speak Your Mind” section at the bottom of this post:

“What style of music gets you up on the dance floor?”

Are you like me?  Do you like to boogie to some ol’ time rock n’ roll?  If that isn’t your style….Do you cha cha, waltz or samba?  Or, do you prefer to party like it’s 1999?  Are you joining in with the new craze by dancing “Gangman Style?”..Whatever get’s you on the dance floor, I want to know!

Note:  If you have two left feet, or don’t like dancing, no problem!  Just say something along the lines of “hello” and you’re good to go.
