Go here for the latest GIVEAWAY NEWS}

Dear Readers,

I promised a giveaway and then I had the chance to get-away for a little vacation and I jumped at the opportunity.  For those of you left hanging on the edge of your seats, I'm so sorry for the delay!  The good news is I've extended the deadline and I've come up with several easy ways you can increase your chances of winning. 

All FOLLOWERS are eligible for the drawing.  For more chances at winning, here's what you can do:

Between now and June 22nd:

1.  Make a comment on any post -past or present- and each time you do, your name will be added to the drawing. 

2.  If you leave your first name and your country with any comment, I'll put your name in TWICE for each comment containing this information.

Note:  Your first name and country will suffice--no need to leave any further comment unless you feel like it.   Just take the time to leave your  name and your country -on any as many posts as you like- and your name will go in the hat twice each time you do.  (Feel free to include your city if you like, but it's not necessary to be eligible.)

3.  Lastly, if you email me a favorite recipe I will add FIVE extra chances at winning.  (Be sure to include written permission for me to re-print and/or publish your recipe in a future post.) 

This is the opportunity to get your name in the drawing literally hundreds of times!   And what's at stake?

A $100 gift card
to shop in the emporium and select anything your heart desires!

Best of luck!
