Win-It-Wednesday: “Gluten-Free Cooking for Two” Cookbook by Carol Fenster

April 4th, 2017

GF Cooking for TwoIt’s cookbook giveaway time again! And this time it is sponsored by one of my favorite gluten-free cookbook authors, Carol Fenster!

Carol’s new gluten-free cookbook is genius. Living in a two-person household, Carol decided that enough was enough when it came to “over-making” recipes by preparing enough to feed a small army. So she wrote Gluten-Free Cooking for Two, a collection of 125 recipes, that are absolutely perfect for two.

Being in a household of two myself I love this cookbook. It is perfect for empty-nesters, newlyweds or even singles. Besides being convenient, this cookbook has allowed me to actually save money (and we all know I love to save!) since it allows me to cook only the portions that I need, and as a result reduce the amount of food I throw away. Why? Because having mega amount of leftovers is so overrated and wasteful most of the time! Let’s face it… the concept of eating that super-sized gluten-free casserole as leftovers for the whole week never, ever really happens!

Gluten-Free Cooking for Two focuses on those dishes that require real kitchen finesse to downsize. It may be easy to grill up two chicken breasts or steaming veggies for two, but as Carol says, sometimes “… it’s not always as simple as dividing a 4-serving recipe in half.” That’s where this cookbook comes into play!

Some of the recipes I loved in the cookbook are the Chicken Pot Pies with Rustic Biscuit Crust, Coconut-Curry Salmon, Chia Breakfast Pudding, Chicken Tikka Masala, Minestrone Soup and the Lemon Bars. All are delicious, easy to make and perfect for two! And as a bonus, Carol also includes the recipe for her signature Gluten-Free Flour Blend, plus tips for “small batch” grocery shopping & prepping.

And lucky for all of you, Carol Fenster and her team are providing us with TWO copies of the “Gluten-Free Cooking for Two” cookbook for two lucky winners of this contest!

One (1) winner will be randomly selected to win a cookbook from the entries received before Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win a cookbook from the entries received between Wednesday, April 12 2017 and Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 11:59PM. SO – make sure you enter two times to win!

Win-It-Wednesday: Taza Chocolate

March 21st, 2017

SaltedAlmond_largeI love local products. And, I love chocolate. That is why I was so very, very thrilled to find the best chocolate in the whole wide world that is made right outside Boston. Let me introduce to you all… Taza Chocolate!

Said like a true Bostonian… Taza Chocolate is wicked good.

Made with stone ground chocolate, every single bite of Taza chocolate is bursting with flavorful organic cacao beans. The process of stone grounding the cacao beans produces a bold and unrefined chocolate experience.

I love the Taza Chocolate Disks. The flavors of the disks are out of this world too. Some of them include the 85% Super Dark, Chipotle Chili, Cinnamon, Coffee, Guajillo Chili, Salted Almond and Vanilla. But my all-time favorite is the Winter Warmer Spiked Eggnog! All flavors are Certified Gluten-Free.

And lucky for all of you, I picked up two packages of the Winter Warmer Eggnog Chocolate Disks for the two lucky winners of this contest!

One (1) winner will be randomly selected to win a lunchbox from the entries received before Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win a lunchbox from the entries received between Wednesday, March 29, 2017 and Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 11:59PM.

February 6th, 2017

multiwomenWhere did January go? It seems that 2017 just started yesterday, yet a whole month has come and gone! Along with the month of January being bye-bye-bye, I’ve also found that a few of my resolutions to get healthy have also slipped between my fingers and disappeared within the last 30 days.

If you’re in the same boat as me, have no fear! MegaFood is here to help both you and me (Plus…others in need too… just read on!)

Fast-forward 44 years later and Megafood has surpassed their promise and is a leading provider of high-quality, top-notch supplements. They produce vitamins, probiotics, minerals and Booster Powders.

And best of all, of the Megafood products are free of gluten, dairy and soy and are also non-GMO.

My favorite Megafood product is the Multivitamin.  I love that they make specific multivitamins for women of all ages, men of all ages, pregnant gals, and kids. I feel confident taking Megafood products because I am assured they are gluten-free and have the highest standards and ingredients. megafood 1

When I heard about Megafood’s mission to Close the Nutritional Gap and get people (like me!) on the right track, spread the word to all of you and also help those in need, I was thrilled to find out more.

Megafood’s Close the Nutritional Gap promotion is brilliant. It works by “pledging” to close your nutritional gap by taking a MegaFood MultiVitamin, and signing up for the Pledge. The first 20,000 pledgers receive a $5 off coupon and all will be entered for a chance to win a year’s supply of Multis and some awesome wellness giveaways just for pledging. MegaFood will then donate 1 bottle of Multis for every pledge (up to 20,000) to someone in need. Plus, they will make a donation to Wholesome Wave, equivalent to 2 servings of fresh fruits & veggies per pledge for those in needs.

Signed up for the pledge is easy… and getting the $5.00 coupon for any Megafood MultiVitamin is just a “Hit Print” button away!
