For my sweepstakes pals

As many of you know I just love entering sweepstakes and contests...and of course I love winning! I used to subscribe to a couple of sweepstakes newsletters but I found it very pricey and decided with all the info available on the web that I'd be better off using my dollars in stamps. But then I found an online yahoo group by Judye Briggs called SnailsOnly. That's a little deceptive though since it is not snails only but every way imaginable! She lists snail, online, phone and text entry sweeps. So if you're looking for a cheaper way to get sweepstakes info I thought I'd pass this on.You can sign up free but be aware that she sends a lot. If you are worried about a lot of emails I recommend you get the digest form which condenses it to a couple emails a day. Have fun and win HUGE!

With Easter coming up next weekend you may be looking for some inspiration to use up the leftover ham that you're sure to have. Cutest Kid Ever blog is giving away 2 Cooks Spiral Hams and the Cooks site has lots of recipes to whet your appetite!
My family loves omelets so when I have leftover ham I chop it into small pieces and freeze up baggies with a 1/2 cup or so chopped ham in each.I also add chopped green peppers and onions to the bag. Then when we want omelets I just grab out a couple bags while the coffee is brewing and in no time they are thawed and ready to use. Pre-measured and pre-chopped it makes morning omelets a breeze! Of course you could add other ingredients--like mushrooms or crumbled bacon. Enjoy! Ends 3/30

And we have a winner!
Random Integer Generator

Here are your random numbers:


Timestamp: 2010-02-25 14:18:14 UTC
Congrats to Carolyn G, I'll be emailing you for your info!

When I was contacted by My Blog Spark and asked if I was interested in reviewing Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls~~ I was more than happy to join the fun!When I was young I really loved Sunday mornings at Grandma's house.She always had stacks of homemade french toast oozing with maple syrup! Now with all my grandkids I find Sunday mornings very hectic! They visit frequently and I like to have a special treat in the morning that they don't have time for at home. These sweet rolls were an instant hit! We had fun making them since the granddaughters were able to prepare them and the grandson got to put the icing on! We had ours with hot chocolate (with straws because we can!)I thought I would get a picture- but they disappeared too fast! However, our second pan was Pillsbury Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls and I managed to hold them off for a minute!

Believe me, they were just as delicious as they look! If you'd like to try them with your family you can visit to save $0.95 on one package of Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls today!

Pillsbury has also offered to give away a Pillsbury Orange Sweet Roll free coupon and a nice picture frame so you can show off your Sunday morning moments!
Here's how you can enter to win:
Mandatory entry (must be done first or all other entries are void) Tell me your favorite memory of Sunday mornings growing up.

Chocolates from The Candyman!

Do you all enter twitter giveaways? ( You can join at ) I enter quite a few and recently I entered one that said "Enter to win free chocolates from the Candyman by following @leapgear". Well, of course I love chocolates so I entered and was surprised and pleased when I got a message from @leapgear that I'd won! But that was nothing compared to how happy I was when I received the chocolates! I didn't really know who the Candyman was so I expected a store bought box of chocolates! NOT SO! I got this positively beautiful box of handmade in the Adirondack's Chocolates.

I wish I could share them with you! They are as delicious as they are beautiful! Even the packaging is extra nice! So if you are looking for some special candy for your sweetie or yourself then head over and check out all the Candyman's wonderful offerings!

Win Maple Syrup!

As a child growing up on a farm in rural Maine we always made our own maple syrup in the springtime.It was a lot of work to tap the trees, gather the sap buckets and tote them to the sugar shack where we boiled the sap into syrup. But it was also a lot of fun! Maple syrup was more like a condiment back then. We used it on pancakes, biscuits, ice cream and it was added to apple pies. That was a lot of good eating!
Now the Coombs Family Farms are offering a Maple Syrup Giveaway. You can read all about it and enter here:

Reynolds Wrap Discovery

No, of course I didn't just discover Reynolds Wrap! I was first married on 1/20/68 and have been using it for all those 42 years. Not only do I bake with it, I line my paint tray for easy cleanup, I have made helmets for Halloween costumes and even used it for emergency gift wrap! So obviously, I love Reynolds Wrap! But I have always had one complaint: You know when you grab the box in your right hand and pull out the foil- it just jumps out of the box and unrolls its way to the floor!Then its almost impossible to get back in the box with the box flaps getting in the way! GRRR!! ( Now I'm wondering why I hold it in my right hand in the first place- being right handed!) WELL-- hold the fort! Go get your box- right now.....I'll wait......

Got it? Now look at the end of the box:

See that little triangle that says "PRESS HERE TO LOCK ROLL"??? When the heck did they add that? OMG! The box also tells me that Reynolds Wrap has been trusted since 1947!! I sure hope that tab wasn't there all those years and I totally missed it! If you didn't know either please leave a comment because right now I am feeling pretty numb! ;-)

**These opinions are mine alone. I was neither offered or received compensation for this post.

Oh, and my worst gift? One Christmas I received a free calendar from the oil company my son-in-law works for.How cheap is that? And I gave him new floor mats for his truck! I cried all Christmas Day for the lack of feeling involved ( I swear I raised my daughter better!She got ditzy when she married this winner!) However, there are no secrets in this family and the next day I received a beautiful bouquet with an I'm sorry card from my daughter.Okay...but its been 6 years. I guess that hurt is lingering on! By the way- he's gotten a beer can cozy every since! Don't get mad- get even I say!
