One Year Ago

It's my one year blogiversary!!

One year ago today I started this blog!

To celebrate, let's have a giveaway, shall we?!

Two other food bloggers that I've followed faithfully, cooked many of their recipes, and plan to cook many more of in the future have written their very own cookbooks. I'll treat one of you lucky ducks to a copy of both!

Ree, of Pioneer Woman with The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl, set to release October 27th.

And Stephanie of A Year of Crockpotting with Make It Fast, Cook It Slow, set to release October 13th.

For your chance to enter please leave a comment. Need something to comment about? Tell me a recipe you've tried or a recipe you'd like to try that I've posted!

For a second chance to enter linkback to this post on your blog or Twitter! Leave a second comment letting me know you've done so!

I'll collect all of the entries and announce the winner next Sunday, September 20th.

Thank you for the wonderful year! It's been so much fun and I've met a bunch of wonderful people!

(Alisa of One Frugal Foodie has also written a cookbook, Go Dairy Free. I chose the other two for the give away because I know many of you aren't affected by food allergies, I still wanted to give her book a shout out!!)

I can't believe it's been a year! Both of these cookbooks are on my wish list.

We love Stephanie O'Dea's Peking Pork Chops. Mmmm.

Happy Anniversary! I have both of these cookbooks on my wishlist and I am so grateful to you for giving us a chance to win them! You rock! :)

Thanks for offering the giveaway! So many of your recipes look delicious (and look like food that I would actually like to cook), but I'm especially entranced by your Pasta Pie. And trying not to be intimidated by it. :)

Laura said...

I love your blog Christina and I look forward to reading every post!

Alisa - Frugal Foodie said...

Happy Blogiversary!

Thanks for the mention :)

I so want to get my hands on that slow cooker cookbook! And, as a matter of fact, I have had my eye on the Asian Crockpot Pork recipe on your blog.

Happy Happy Blogiversary Christina!

I really really want to try the lemon sorbet recipe you posted on Friday September 4th.

Call me crazy, but I get intense cravings for ice cream in the colder months, so come November I will probably be making the sorbet :)

Love your blog!

A Mother's Nature said...

Also--I linked your beautious blog months ago on the blog-roll on my blog :)

Kitchen Flavours said...

Wow...congrats and keep rocking....being a chocolate fan would love to make that banana boat...looks extremely drool worthy....

Sweetie Pie said...

YAY!!!! Congratulations! I always enjoy checking out your site, and I'm so happy to celebrate your blogiversary with you.

Every single thing you have made from the Perfect Scoop has made me drool. I love cookbooks. I'd love to win a couple of new ones! :-)

Sweetie Pie said...

P.S. I just tweeted about your giveaway. I'll try to link back too, assuming I have another post in time to do so!

Jenn@slim-shoppin said...

Happy Anniversary Christina!!!

I have enjoyed reading your blog. As you know, you were the first person who commented on my blog, so I'll always be a reader of your blog.

I think the funniest thing you posted was the eggstracter thingy where you and Johnny tried to do push the egg through it. I laughed so hard at that!

Those are 2 awesome books!! I love Rea from Pioneer Woman Cooks!

Just found your blog from One Frugal Foodie - and I don't have to look far to find a recipe of yours I want to make: Chocolate Covered Coffee Bean Ice Cream! :)

I'd love to try the crustless apple pie.

burpandslurp said...

It's only been one year?! Wow! CONGRATULATIONS, my dear Christina!

Haha, I really wish I could win because my b-day is Oct 28 and it would be a very appropriate "b-day present" indeed since one of them is released on the 27th! ;-)

p.s. I twitted! :D

Happy blogavesary~ Isn't it crazy how fast time flies by? Let's hope that there are many more years in the future!

Happy anniversary!

I'm gonna have to go with your BBQ pomegranate ribs. I'm a sucker for pork.

luckytastebuds said...

wooohoo!! Congratulations on your 1 year blogoversary!!!! OK you made this one a tough one (to pick through all your recipes Christina!)!

I have to say that i am a sucker for your pulled pork recipe you posted about like, 4 months ago. It's been hanging at the back of my head and i can't pass a piece of pork without thinking i need to make that recipe soon! Life's just been too chaotic for new experiments recently, but...who knows?? the day may come very very soon! I pledge that if i win this, i'll make that recipe for SURE!

Cazra said...

I MUST make the Cheesecake Ice Cream very, very soon! I am a lover of Cheesecake and Ice Cream! Sounds deeeeeelicious!

Brian said...

Wow, two of my favorite food blogs and their cookbooks....but I see just from the coffee ice cream recipe, I'm going to have to add you as well!!!!! Currently living in a place where the most exotic ice cream around is Raisin Rum and it's just not my thang!

I will try this this weekend!

Thanks ever so much!

BR said...

Black Bean Burgers! Yum!

Maggie said...

Happy Anniversary! I'd love to try any of your crockpot recipes :)

P.S. The "word verification" wants me to type "duche". Kind of funny :P

Michelle said...

I want to try the Stuffed Acorn Squash and it is almost that time of year.

Mmmmmm.

And now, based on Maggie's comment that she would try ANY of your crockpot recipes (and because I am a lazy cook) I'm going to browse through your archives some more.

Happy Blog-o-versary!

Happy Blog Anniversary! I've had such problems leaving comments lately on blogspot and blogger!

4 days and counting! Yahoo! I think I am going to make pizza as an appetizer - good idea?

Sweetie Pie said...

I just linked back. Congrats to you once again!!

debby said...

Happy Blogiversary! I just found you via Biz...and am wondering how I've missed your gorgeous blog for so long! Off to read more...

Miss M.J. Ma'am said...

Hey, happy Blogiversary!
I'm going to try the sweet potato fries tonight. It's the right thing to do!

ReginaC said...

i can't wait to try the sweet potato fries!

Mott (aka Martha or Martha Sue) said...

You don't sound like a procrastinator to me! Now I am the Queen of Procrastination! I overthink everything and if I can't make it perfect in reality and/or my mind, I just don't do it. If I do, I usually don't like it. I know, I know...it's a bad problem. But don't you feel better now? See, I knew you would! I think I will enjoy your blog for a while since I found it on PW. Thanks for the giveaway!

As soon as I saw the recipe for sweet potato oven fries, I decided to make them. I have sweet potatoes. Yum. Marie
