Happy Anniversary to Me!

This month marks the sixth anniversary of this blog’s launch! I really can’t believe it’s been that long!

This is the two hundred and fiftieth post! I can’t believe I’ve posted that much – mostly recipes, but there have been a few ramblings and a few devotionals and even a few rants.

I always love reading comments from my readers! It makes me feel like I’m doing something right! I love to answer questions. I love to hear how you’ve altered my recipe to suit your family. I love for you to tell me that a recipe reminds you of something your grandmother used to make when you were little.

Well, any anniversary calls for a celebration! So here’s what I’m going to do!

I’m going to give away 6 copies of my cookbook!

All you have to do is add a comment at the bottom of this post. Just comment your name, a contact email, and what kinds of recipes you like best. I will put all of those names into a hat – literally. Christopher has a great big Stetson I’ll borrow just for this occasion – and I will draw 6 names. I will email those 6 people to get shipping info and I’ll pay the shipping costs!

That’s it! Just comment and I’ll do the rest!

Drawing will take place on August 15th.
