Friends and Giveaways, Can We Ever Have Too Many?

I was honored with a wonderful blog “Friends Award” to pass on and share, and I also have some other giveaways to mention …

friendsMariposa at What Do I Eat Now? is by far my most energetic bloggy friend, and she has bestowed this awesome Friends award upon me, which I am now honored to pass on. The rules seem loose, but I want to award six bloggy friends who I think of as “my possy.”  These ladies not only run awesome blogs, but they have also contributed tons of wonderful recipes and reviews to Go Dairy Free (my alter ego) … I don’t know what I would do with out them (don’t forget to pass it on!) …

  • Hannah at Bittersweet is certainly my longest running blogger friend, and honestly, she has been my biggest inspiration. For over a year we literally emailed daily; and if you haven’t seen her awesome blog then I just have to know, where have you been?
  • Sarah at No Whey Mama has to be one of the most awesome moms, and I more than enjoy having her as a fellow dairy-free blogger.
  • Sarena at The Non-Dairy Queen and I have far too much in common. If only she didn’t live on the other side of the country!
  • Veggiegirl probably has a bazillion of these awards stacking up in her inbox, but I appreciate her too much not to throw one more her way.
  • Karen at Avoiding Milk Protein is a machine when it comes to discovering all things related to milk allergies. I am always amazed at what she finds.
  • And of course, right back at Mariposa. Seriously, her positive energy is infectious!

For some awesome recipes and posts, check out all of these ladies’ blogs. Now, for the giveaways! As you probably know, today is the last day to enter the Navan Foods Giveaway on this blog, so enter now if you haven’t already, but there are a couple more I would like to mention:

I can vouch that both products are awesome, so don’t miss out!

Back tomorrow with two winners and more recipes coming your way soon!

Comment to Win Gourmet Sweets from Divvies!

Yes, the spirit of giving is alive and well!  This week Divvies is offering a gift package to two of you!  Simply leave a comment below and tell us your favorite type of popcorn … caramel, candied, kettle, chocolate, “buttered,” cheesy, or simply salted … however you like it just share and you will be entered to win!  

Now you might be wondering, “What will I win?”  Well, Divvies is well known for their gourmet gift packages, so they will be offering up two of these seasonal packages as prizes! The first is their Santa’s S’morg, a sampling smorgasbord of bakery cookies, candy and gourmet popcorns loaded into a large Divvies gift box … and, it looks something (exactly) like this …

Santas Smorg from Divvies

The second prize is Divvies’ Team Popcorn, a delicious package of gourmet popcorn, complete with stripe circus bags and a paper scoop for sharing with the whole group. An image would be helpful, no? 

Of course, the real thing is much larger, these images aren’t even close to scale!

Also, If you are on a special diet or have food allergies, have no fear.  Divvies runs a food allergy-friendly facility that is free from dairy/milk, eggs, tree nuts, and peanuts, and is consequently vegan.

I’m looking forward to hearing your responses, and may just have to follow-up with a recipe or two of your popcorn favorites! The two winners will be announced on Friday, December 12th (2008), so reply now!
