The Pillsbury Million Dollar Bake-Off


Here's something you didn't know about me...I. Love. To. Bake.

Oh sure, I know you've never seen a post even slightly resembling domestic from me.
I fully admit that I'm blog friends with people like The Happy Housewife, in a way that opposites attract.
Well, there was the one Apple Pie post I did, but that's really it and it was such a big deal to make that I had to blog about it.

However, starting today I LOVE to Bake!
And I'm up for a Baking Throw-Down!

WHY?
Because money talks and I hear that Pillsbury will give ME a $1 million grand prize for my fabulous recipe! Plus, one hundred finalists will win a trip tot the finals NEXT April (2010) at the Waldorf-Astoria Orlando and Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek hotel in Florida.

Want to try?
You must beat my original recipe that will taste and look delicious, is easy to prepare, and that families across American will love to eat. There are 4 categories but I plan on winning in all so good luck: Breakast & Brunches, Entertaining, Appetizers, Dinner Made Easy and Sweet Treats.

Entries are accepted online between now and April 20th, 2009 at www.bakeoff.com.

Just don't get your hopes up because when this blogger sees $1 million big ones and a free trip to Florida she won't quit until she wins!

Thanks to My Blog Spark for alerting me to the contest.
Sweating in the kitchen,
Janine

Win a FREE Pillow Protector from Aller-Ease!

Fact: 1 in 4 Americans suffer from asthma or allergies.

I bet there are times you wake up feeling a little stuffy, sinuses a little clogged, slight dull headache. What's causing that? Could be one of the little microscopic things living in that pillow like
dust mite droppings,
pollen, fungal and mold spores, and pet dander.

All I can say is, eeeewwwww.

One thing you might try is changing that pillowcase and Aller-Ease is making it really easy to WIN one so you can test my theory FREE!


Aller-Ease is giving away 50 pillow protectors EVERY DAY through Monday, April 6th.
Not only that, give them your WORST allergy story and you could win an allergy-proofing bedroom makeover! (Allergy horror story contest ends April 30, 2009.)

What are some other things you can do to reduce allergies in your bedroom?

  • Wash bed linens weekly in 130-degree Fahrenheit water
  • Remove dust collecting clutter from the bedroom and other areas of your home
  • Place non-washable plush toys in a zip-lock bag and put them in the freezer for 3-5 hours every week to kill off any dust mites
  • Change air conditioner filters frequently during the allergy season
  • Shampoo hair nightly and change clothes before entering the bedroom to avoid transferring outdoor pollens into your bedroom

For more tips and to hear answers to common allergy questions from the Medical Director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York, Dr. Clifford W. Bassett, visit the Aller-Ease site today.
Don't forget to enter to win one of 50 pillow protectors before Monday!

Yummy Chocolate Mocha Review & Giveaway! **Winners Announced**

***UPDATE***
Congratulations to our winners!

_______________________________________________
My Blog Spark apparently knows me better than my own family because they recently sent me a beautiful spa basket filled with all kinds of chocolate goodies including Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy Bars.

When I say I LOVE chocolate, I'm talking about the must-have-at-least-once-a-day-keep-a-stash-of-chocolate-chips-in-an-emergency kind of way. My experience with the Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy Bar is that it satisfied not only my 3:00 pm chocolate craving, but it satisfied my hunger long enough for me to get home and make dinner without snacking!

Better yet, Fiber One products like these offer 35% of the recommended daily fiber and are a good source of calcium.

Why Fiber you ask?

Fiber can help you satisfy your appetite and manage your weight. Fiber can also help keep your digestive system on track!

Want to know if you are getting enough fiber? Check out the Fiber-O-Meter at: http://www.webmd.com/diet/healthtool-fiber-meter

FREE COUPON!

Fiber One is now offering a $1.35 off downloadable coupon for one box of Fiber One Chewy Bars available at:
http://bricks.coupons.com/bstart.asp?o=55392&ci=1&c=GM&p=4AbZ6NPX

YOU can win one of 3 Spa Bre
ak Gift Baskets that include:
  • Coupon for Free Box of Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy Bars
  • Cozy bath pillow
  • Chocolate scented soap, lotion & bath salts
