Upcoming Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style & a giveaway!

For the past couple of years I've hosted a big Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange and I've been delighted with the impressive participation from my fellow bloggers! 

I'm hosting this recipe exchange again this year on 7 November and I hope you'll join me!

And to help encourage you to spread the word, I'm going to give away a set of 20 personalized, blank recipe cards to one lucky winner.  I've designed these  recipe cards using photoshop and I'll print them out on card stock. They'll have your first and last name on each one.  I've gone with a Christmas theme, so that you can use them to share recipes with family and friends this year.  

All you have to do to have a chance to win a set of these recipe cards is to publish a post about my upcoming Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange on your blog and then stop back here and leave me a comment with a link directing me to that post.  If you do that, I'll throw your name in the drawing for the free personalized  recipe cards.

Hope to see you back here on 7 November!  Spread the word!

ooh, oooh, ooooooh, I can't wait to participate!

I loved last years' recipes so much. This year, I'll contribute the best ever sweet potato casserole recipe. This is only considered a vegetable dish because there are sweet potatoes. Everything else in there turns it into a dessert. YUM.

Take Care,

I used random number generator today for my pay it forward book exchange and had to tell you 'cuz I knew you'd get a good laugh, but I had to roll 4 times! The first 3 were different combos of the number 8, your comment number, but you had said not to enter you.
