Although every moment is a blessing, the entirety of last year year was especially a big blessing for us. The biggest moment of course was our engagement. But who knew that starting this blog would lead us to so many new life experiences, friendships, and opportunities. There were so many memorable moments, from bakesales such as Eat My Blog to cooking with fellow bloggers, to weekend culinary getaways and countless others memories too many to list… Here’s a few highlights in the last year that we haven’t announced…our strawberry mojito is on the Strawberry IPhone app!
Also, our Jalapeno Poppers in a Blanket recipe was a winner in the Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry Recipe Contest. But of course none of this would have happened if it wasn’t for the support of our family, friends, foodies, and readers. So to commemorate our blog’s 1st birthday and 1 year anniversary, we’re kicking off a month of giveaways, starting with a goodie bag full of treats..
There’s too many items to photograph and list but highlights of the goodie bag includes a very nice insulated grocery bag by N’Take (great for buying meats and seafoods), Gourmet nuts by Sahale Snacks, reusable produce bags by 3B Bags, coconut water by O.N.E, Crema di Balsamico by Earthy Delights, and organic teas by Revolution.
