22 September 2011

In honor of posting my 300th recipe and reaching over 200 fans on my Facebook page, I am excited to announce my first-ever giveaway!  Since I have never done this before, you will have to bear with me.  Let's see if I can do it right!

The giveaway is a one-year subscription to Taste of Home.  I love Taste of Home and have found many great recipes in it.  I love how their recipes aren't too fancy and tend to use a few simple ingredients to create a nice meal.  



I will be giving away a one-year subscription to TWO lucky readers.  Don't fret if you already subscribe; if you win, you can gift your subscription to a friend or relative and you are covered for their next birthday or Christmas (they don't have to know it was free)!  The winners will get to choose who receives the subscription, either themselves or a friend/relative.  Here are the giveaway rules:


  1. To enter, leave a comment telling me what your favorite food magazine is.
  2. For a second entry, become a follower of this blog through Google Friend Connect (in the right sidebar). Leave a separate comment telling me you became a follower or are already following me.
  3. For a third entry, become a fan of my Facebook page.  Leave a separate comment telling me you have done so.
  4. For a fourth entry, share the link to this giveaway on your Facebook page. Please tag Edesia's Notebook in your post. Again, leave a separate comment telling me you have done so.
That's four chances to win!  The contest will be open until Tuesday, September 27 at 7:00 am Eastern.  The winner will be chosen by Random.org. You can comment as "Anonymous", but you must include your name in your comment for it to be valid. Any Anonymous comments with no name will be deleted. Contest is open to U.S., Canadian, and International residents. This contest is not sponsored by Taste of Home or any other party; I am sponsoring this giveaway myself.


Good luck to all of you!

  15. My (current) favorite magazine is Food and Wine... interestingly enough it is also my *least* favorite. I love it because it "stretches me" as a cook... I hate it because there are always these really obscure ingredients that are either very expensive, hard to find, or I only need a "pinch". (It also makes me realize that I don't have enough time/money to do all the cooking I want to do.)
    A close second is "Everyday Food" (Martha!).

    **side bar** Lesa, I love reading your blog! Our family decided that we were going to do 5 weeks of new recipes and almost all of them came from your blog. Thanks for sharing such great, easy, DELICIOUS recipes. Can't wait to try some of your crock pot recipes (now, if I can just find my crock pot....).
