**This contest is now over! Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming response. A winner will be announced shortly!**
Is it seriously June already?! Wow, where did these past two months go? I was planning on doing this giveaway in April! Anyway, better late than never, right?
When I started this blog back in 2009 it was for purely selfish reasons. I was leaving the country and all my cookbooks behind to live abroad for an indefinite amount of time. I needed a smart place to store some of my recipes. That’s all this blog was for the first year of it’s life.
When I returned to Canada and “normal” life I decided to start posting more regularly because cooking and writing are both things I am incredibly passionate about.
I had no idea that this little blog would grow to what it is now. I remember the first time I ever got a real (non-spam) comment. I felt so proud. And, I’ll be totally honest, even when I get comments now I still feel so proud and excited. It’s all of you readers and fans and supporters who give me a reason to keep coming up with recipes and post them on this blog. It’s because of you that I want to learn how to take better photos of my food. (Yes, I promise I’m trying to improve!) It’s because of you that I sometimes obsess about my blog. You guys make me truly happy!
Now it’s time to say thanks for all the support and interaction by giving something away.
What am I giving away? A copy of Susan O’Brien’s newest book Gluten Free Vegan Comfort Food.
(Disclosure: This prize is being graciously provided by the publishers of the book – DaCapo Publishing. I was also given a personal copy to review and I really liked the variety of recipes. Check out my full review here.)
Here’s how you can enter to win.
Subscribe to my brand-new fun newsletter here.
Why am I starting a newsletter? I like to write, mostly. But also, I have some fun things to share that don’t always make it on the website. I’m not going to be including actual recipes in the newsletter – although there will be links to recipes for sure – but you’ll find so much great stuff. I’ll share some of my chats with other food bloggers, business owners who care about the gluten-free vegan lifestyle, and heart-to-hearts with my cat.
You should subscribe because not only will you have fun reading more from me (riiiight?) but also I intend on sharing some exclusives in the newsletter that only my subscribers will have access to. I’m still dreaming up all the fun possibilities.
It’s so easy. You sign up once and that’s it. You can unsubscribe at any time. (Pfft, as if you’d ever want to do that!) And I pinky-swear that I will never, ever, ever, never take your email address and rent it, share it, or sell it to any third parties. Your email address will be kept private. My pinky-swears mean something, in case you didn’t know.
This particular contest is running during the month of June. In order to be eligible to be entered into the draw you need to subscribe to my newsletter before June 30, 2012. You can definitely subscribe after the fact but sadly you’ll miss out on this sweet prize.
Oh and something sort of important I should mention is that newsletter subscribers from all over the world are welcomed and appreciated, however I will only be able to ship the prize within the Continental U.S. and Canada at this time.
Thanks to all you readers who make me happy!
