Happy Fourth Blogiversary to Me! And a Giveaway!

It's that time of year again, peeps! It's September. And four years ago this week I started this blog. Crazy. Last year at this time I babbled on about my early blog posts, which, if you are really bored or bed-ridden thanks to some illness or other, make for some rather funny reading (You can find them in the Archive on the left). Germany was F.U.N.

Last year I hosted a giveaway of the crafty sort to celebrate turning three, but since this blog has evolved into even more of a food centric endeavor, I'm focusing on noshing for this year's giveaway. You lucky buggers!



Your prize package will include: 

This bad ass cookbook by Ryan Jennings and David Steele
Entertaining with Booze: Designer Drinks, Fabulous Food and Inspired Ideas for Your Next Party
                                 Entertaining with Booze: Designer Drinks, Fabulous Food and Inspired Ideas for Your Next Party
These guys are just so cute, I mean really, how can you help wanting this book? Plus it's full of amazing recipes that would rock your party guests and would also be great for just cooking at home. They are all set up into menus with party themes like "The Perfect Suck-up Supper" and "Get Fat Tuesday." There is a recipe for Black and Tan Brownies. And Roasted Cock with Leekie Banger Stuffing, which makes me almost pee my pants laughing. And of course, they all include booze. Me likey.


Martha Stewart Holidays™ Halloween Pastry Stencil KitMartha Stewart Holidays Vampire Cupcake Stencils
Perfect for your Halloween baking! I love love love the drops of blood stencil. Gross and awesome at the same time!


And if you are feeling adventurous, let me know and I will toss in some Reishi Mushrooms for you, too! You know you want to try a Vanilla Chai Latte.


To enter:
No hoop jumping! Yay! Just leave me a comment with your email address so I can contact you.

Of course, I always appreciate if you click the little Follow button up there in the left sidebar, but it's not required! Also, for you scaredy cat friends of mine who I know read secretly and never comment (I see you Ibeys), never fear. You can comment without signing in and type your email like so: whathisface(at)yahoo(dot)com. Then those meany phishermen won't spam you.

This giveaway is only open to residents of the US, again, I'm cheap. We all know this. Until the P.O. reduces shipping rates, I can't ship to my fab friends in other countries :( Sorry!

Giveaway ends Wed. 9/29/10 at 5PM EST.
