Blog Giveaway for my 100th post!

Thank you for entering. This giveaway is now closed!

That's right folks! This is my 100th post and I want to offer up a 1 yr. subscription to Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine. I LOVE this magazine. It has such straightforward simple recipes that are so tasty (and you can utilize quite a few local food items too). I really think you'll love it too.

Here's how the giveaway works:
  1. Giveaway will close Friday October 31st at 12 pm EST.
  2. This is a US only giveaway.
  3. You get one entry for simply commenting on this post.
  4. You'll get a second entry if you subscribe to my FREE newsletter updates and make another comment stating that you subscribed. If you already subscribe, leave a comment telling me you're already a subscriber!
  5. You can get a third entry for blogging about this contest on your own blog. Leave me a comment with the link to your blog post about my giveaway. You can utilize one of these brand new graphics if you like:
  6. Thanks for a great 100 posts and here's to 100 (at least!) more!! Good luck and be sure to spread the word about this awesome giveaway!

    (Be sure to visit Bloggy Giveaways for many more blog giveaways this week!)

Wow! First comment :D First off, congratulations on your 100th post! I don't know how you bloggers have the stick-to-itiveness. Then again if I spent less time reading blogs I might have time to write one!
I'd love to win this. We are big on cooking from scratch at our house, and especially with these economic times it makes a lot of sense. I sure hope your giveaway is Canadian-friendly (if not, I guess I have to say don't pick me)!

Virginia October 29, 2008 at 6:47 PM  

I don't know how I've been sticking to it either. I really believe in what I blog about, which I think helps with the stick-to-itiveness. If it was a topic I wasn't passionate about, I'm sure the blog wouldn't last!

This is a US only giveaway (I'll note that in the post!) BUT thanks so much for your comment!!

cpullum October 29, 2008 at 8:18 PM  

I love recipes!!!! I hate that I have to work and miss her show!!

Stacy October 29, 2008 at 8:38 PM  

I used to borrow my friends copies so it would be great to have my own.


Sunny October 29, 2008 at 10:45 PM  

I am in need of cooking help! Congrats on #100!!!

I still use an EveryDay Food recipe for White Bean Turkey Chili years later. I love their simple recipes because they don't use a lot of ingredients or have complicated steps. You can't go wrong with Martha.
Congrats on your 100th!

Thank you for the generous giveaway!

Hi Virginia,

I signed up as a follower last week & every day at work I visit your blog a few times a day. (sometimes you blog more than once..:) This is the only blog that I look at daily. I want you to know that I have enjoyed the info you have given us who are local NH women from the markets to all of the local farms to activities and then recipies. I don't have a lot of time at home because we have a small farm ourselves. So when I check your site it has given me new ideas as well as new energy to try stuff I would not have tried. I loved seeing what you could make out of your market booty's and have been picking up little vintage thingies for myself. You are doing a great job and I appreciate and admire what you are doing! Oh, and I have about 70 butternut squash I am going to freeze this weekend, I'd love to hear what else you have come up with for that veggie!!

Thanks again,

Amy October 30, 2008 at 10:27 AM  

I would love to win the magazine.
