Mom and I have been talking for quite some time now about how we'd love to start a recipe blog, and we've finally got it under way! It's a very new blog right now, so there isn't a whole lot to look at just yet, but in time we hope to have a nice collection of recipes for all of our favorite things – muffins, soups, pies, and anything else we attempt to make in our kitchens that we'd happily make again.
Since we love to cook and bake according to the season (although I have been known to make my mother in-law's German Pancake Soup in the summer), we're calling our new blog Four Seasons Cafe, and the link is in the sidebar. I hope you'll stop by once in a while with a cup of coffee (or tea!) and see if there's anything to tempt you to make or bake in your own kitchen!
To celebrate our new blog, I'm having a fun giveaway! I've been given the opportunity to award a $60.00 gift certificate to one lucky winner, good for anything at one of CSN Stores' 200 places to shop! Perhaps you might be interested in the corner tv stands from racksandstands.com…. Or what about a cool kitchen rack? There are so many possibilities to spend it on… you could get something from here, or perhaps here, or maybe even here or here!
Here are the rules and the details:
1. To enter, just leave a comment on this blog, or send me an email. I'll be choosing a winner on Friday some time, and if you post about the giveaway on your blog, let me know and you'll have two chances to win!
2. This gift certificate is for a one-time use at any of CSN Stores' 200 online stores, and it may be used toward a larger purchase. Some stores offer free shipping, but for the ones that do not, the winner is required to pay any additional shipping or international fees that apply.
3. This giveaway is open to US or Canadian residents only, as this is where CSN is able to ship.
4. I'm receiving no compensation for this giveaway, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have it!
I leave you with a picture of some baby mulberries growing in my back yard… they'll be making their reappearance on Four Seasons Cafe in the fall – in a pie! (But don't wait that long to visit…)
Good luck to everyone, and happy shopping! (And thank you to Jess at CSN Stores!)
