double giveaway

What’s better than one giveaway with one cool prize?

One giveaway with two cool prizes.


First up, this super fun cookbook, Frugally Delicious.  Many months ago, one of the creators of this book asked if I would be interested in contributing a recipe.  Of course! 


You will find my recipe for broccoli cheddar soup along with recipes from 55 food bloggers in total.  It has a simple, clean, and creative design and shows you that frugalness in the kitchen doesn’t have to mean boring.

[If you would like you can order yourself a copy here for $6.60!]


Next up??  Love Grown Foods granola of course!

And guess what?

You get THREE full size bags and you get to pick which flavors you want! 

cocoa goodness : simply oats : raisin almond crunch : sweet cranberry pecan : apple walnut delight

I wanted to give an update on the High Park Fire.  I appreciate all of your concern + positive thoughts!  It’s been a bit all-consuming lately.  We’ve constantly been checking for updates, talking to people around town, and hoping for any bit of progress.  The fire has burned over 43,000 acres, over 100 structures, and there have been well over 2,000 evacuation notices made.  The fire is currently at 5-10% containment [I’ve read conflicting numbers].  HPF is currently the 3rd largest fire in Colorado history.

This was one of the most informative updates I’ve read, and it explains a little bit about the process of how they go about containing and controlling the fire.  It’s actually extremely interesting.  The mind boggling thing is that they don’t expect the fire to be completely contained until this fall!

This is the latest update with a slideshow of images.  Hoping the winds stay calm so they can keep fighting this beast!
