Megans Cookin: What's Cookin?

Saturday, March 1, 2008

What's Cookin?

I have had this little "ol blog for 7 months now. I've met so many nice people, formed fabulous friendships, became a Daring Baker and stepped out of my baking comfort zone, and won so many contest. I'm actually embarrassed to tell you how many I have won. All in about 2 months. Lets list them!

A cookbook titled *I'm Dreaming Of A Chocolate Christmas* from Marye at Baking Delights. (Great cookbook!)

A 14k gold cherub pendant and bag from Karen at A Simply Amusing Blog

A purple stone jewelry set from Melissa at Organized Chaos

An acrylic folk art painting from Jonna at Just Jonna

And a surprise gift that's on the way from Cookie at Cookie Sunshine

And a NEAT receipt scanner from Amy at Working Moms Blog

So a big thank you to these ladies! And I still have my name in a few other hats out there in the blogosphere.

Now it's my turn to give! I'm giving away this (Easter) basket of goodies. Anyone can enter, even if you don't have a blog. I'll tell you the specifics in a minute, but first let's look in this basket!

He have a 2 pack of cute spring kitchen towels and a 4 pack of dishcloths. Notice the cute white flower on the dishcloths? It will make you smile while doing dishes. Guaranteed!

A package of three *Fuzzy Bunny* medium treat boxes
with matching baking cups!

And of course, a package of purple *Peep* bunny's. And who knows what other little goodies could make their way into this basket. It is almost Easter after all and I love surprises!

What do you have to do to enter you ask? Its simple.
Leave me a comment that you want to be entered and that's it. Your entered.
(Non-bloggers must leave a valid e-mail so I can contact you if your the winner)

If you want an extra ticket, subscribe to my blog. Either by RSS feed or e-mail. Already subscribe? Let me know and you get the extra ticket.

Now if you blog about the contest with a link back to this post, I'll give you 5 more tickets!
And for every person who tells me that you sent them, I'll give you another ticket.

You could really jack up your chances to win. Just let me know what your doing in the comments so you get full credit!

You have till St. Patrick's Day to earn your ticket's. I'll have someone around here (not me) pull a name from the hat on March 17th. If I can find a hat! Might have to be a box.

I'll e-mail that person for their address and send the box out immediately. Hopefully, so the box will get to the winner with plenty of time before Easter.

Now who wouldn't want this cute little Easter Basket? I know it's gonna be hard for me to part with. I really want to bake with those cute little baking cups!

I hope I explained it clearly enough. I wish everyone the best of luck.

If you have any questions, E-mail me! Megan_pires2000 AT yahoo DOT com.
