Anniversary Giveaway! Subscription to Everyday Food

October 18, 2011

October 22 marks the third anniversary of MarthaAndMe. It’s been a fun and amazing three years. I started out the first year blogging every single day, and unofficially apprenticing myself to Martha. I learned so much in that year and it ended up being a great bootcamp for me. In year two, I slowed things down and added in my own recipes. The third year was an even bigger change, with more and more of my own recipes. I also wrote and sold three cookbooks in year three! I have Martha and this blog to thank for that!

Along the way I’ve made some great friends, tried new and different projects, and continued to expand my love of cooking and my skills with decorating, organizing and (sometimes!) crafting. What will this fourth year bring? I don’t know for sure, but I do know Martha Mondays continues (click the tab at the top of the blog to learn and to join!), I’ll continue to share my own recipes and my forays into Martha’s world. Cookbook #1 (The Parchment Paper Cookbook – You can enter to win a copy of that on my other blog) is out. The Organized Kitchen and The Muffin Tin Cookbook will be coming soon. I’m contemplating a major site redesign this year as well, so that will be an exciting change.

Mostly I want to thank all of you who have followed me, commented, read along, popped in occasionally, and become my friends. My thank you gift to you is a one year subscription to Everyday Food Magazine. I’m giving away one to a lucky reader. To enter, just leave a comment on this post.

You must enter by midnight ET on Wednesday October 26. I’ll randomly and blindly select the winner by random number drawing (numbers assigned in order of comments here). Sorry, offer limited to U.S. addresses only and entrants age 18 and up only. One entry per person. Winners notified by email given when entering, not responsible for email transmission problems. You are responsible for notifying me of your correct mailing address if you are selected as a winner. Contest closes at midnight Eastern time on 10/26/11.

Final Giveaway

December 5, 2010

This is my final Martha giveaway of the year. 10 lucky winners will get a Martha Stewart Holidays double-edged snowflake trim punch (this creates a strip of die-cut paper to use as a decorative strip) AND a set of Martha Stewart Holidays treat bags (each package includes 8 bags, 8 paper boxes/trays that go at the bottom, 8 tags, 8 pieces of ribbon, and 16 adhesive strips). The paper cutter is super fun to use and makes such pretty strips of snowflakes. It’s perfect for scrapbooking, crafts or making cards. The treat bags are a great way to package candy or small cookies. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the bags have tiny white dots on them which are really cute.  The prizes are courtesy of MSLO and they will mail them out. Previous winners of my other contests have written to tell me how much they liked the punches and treat boxes they received, so I know you’ll love them!

Here’s how to win. Follow me on Twitter. Then leave a comment here with your Twitter handle, so I can match you up.

Yes, Another Giveaway!

November 29, 2010

Are you excited? Another giveaway of Martha swag for my blog readers. Sad that you didn’t win last week’s treat boxes? Well cheer up. This week MSLO is giving away 10 sets of Martha Stewart Holiday Compartment Treat Boxes. These are smaller than last week’s, but just as cute. It’s the same snowflake pattern. Each set comes with 6 boxes, 24 compartments, 24 sheets of tissue paper, 6 pieces of ribbon, and 6 labels. I used these last year as well. They’re really great for small cookies and for candy. Brownies and bar cookies fit well in each compartment also. They are super cute. Last year I used these to give an uncle a “tower of treats” like you see in those food gift catalogs. I stacked all 6 boxes (each filled with different things I’d made) and tied it all with a big ribbon. He was thrilled. Good luck!

Here’s how to win. Leave a comment on this post, then visit No Pot Cooking and leave a comment on any post. You MUST comment in both places to be eligible.

Another Giveaway!

November 22, 2010

This week I’m giving away 10 separate Martha Stewart Holidays treat boxes kits. Each package contains 6  matchbox style boxes, 6 sheets of tissue paper, 6 self-adhesive labels and 6 ribbons.  Dimensions aren’t given but they seem to be 6 inches wide by about 8 1/2 inches long and about 3 inches tall each. I used Martha Stewart treat boxes last year and they are fantastic. I gave away lots of cookies using these. It’s perfect to have the tissue paper, labels and ribbons all provided for you. I also found the boxes to be of high quality. They held together, kept their shape, and could hold as many cookies as I could fit. MSLO is providing the prizes and sent me a sample to try as well.

Here’s how to win. Leave a comment on this post, then visit the NoPotCooking fan page on Facebook and “like” it before Saturday, November 27, 2010.

Announcement and Giveaway

November 16, 2010

I have some fun, fun, fun news! First of all, I am proud to announce my new blog: NoPotCooking. This is my latest endeavor and is all about parchment paper packet cooking.  This new, revolutionary way of cooking allows you to seal in flavors; produce moist, low-fat,delicious food; and do so without using any pots or pans. That means little or no clean up. I don’t know about you, but the bane of my existence is those pots and pans that pile up in my kitchen waiting to be washed. Ugh. This cooking method avoids that completely. I am LOVING it. Please stop by and visit me there! There’s lots of info on the “about” and “technique” pages as well as the blog posts.

Now for the giveaway. MSLO has been kind enough to send me some Martha Stewart Crafts product samples to try and will be giving away TEN of each item to my readers.  These are all holiday themed items that you totally are going to love. I’m going to be spacing the giveaways out, so check back regularly.

Today, to get things started, I have TEN Martha Stewart Crafts Punch Around the Edge Sets in Snow Flurry, so I can select TEN winners. How cool is that? These are incredible. With the two pieces, you can completely punch around a piece of paper. They’re easy to use and I love the snow flake pattern. It’s perfect for making holiday gift tags, cards, or scrapbooking. Here’s how to win. Leave a comment on this post, then visit NoPotCooking and subscribe to the blog via email (on the right hand side, click on the email link under “follow this blog” before Saturday, November 20, 2010.
