A Shameless Promotional Ploy

I am delighted to announce my first-ever giveaway for the Recipes For Life website. This is a foodie-type gift packet, but if you you don’t cook yourself, surely you have someone in your life who would appreciate a lovely assortment of handmade pastas. 

The prize consists of a nicely packaged trio of goodies produced by Midwest Mercantile, makers of artisan pastas: Spinach Basil Fettuccini; Asian Fusion Linguini; and Cocoa Cabernet Tagliarini. It also includes a recipe card for each pasta and a hand-held gismo for lavishing freshly-grated Parmesan on the heavenly creations turned out by whomever ends up with this yum-inspiring selection. 

How to enter and win? Simply sign up as a subscriber (click under the second green-highlighted heading in the right hand column on the home page) at or leave a comment reminding me that you have subscribed previously. 

How to increase your chances of winning? Tweet and/or blog about the giveaway, and then leave a comment at the site with a link to that tweet and/or blog and/or Facebook shout-out. The giveaway entry deadline is February 21, 2011

I’m really anxious to see who our lucky winner will be, so enter as if you were a corrupted member of the voting public – early and often! The winner will be announced on February 25th. Good luck, everyone. 

And by the way, if you enjoyed reading about Spaghetti Night at Grandma’s, you’ll want to take a gander at the newly published photo album that now accompanies that article; it really brings the story to life.

Recipe. According to Encarta, "a list of ingredients and instructions for making something." The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, "formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique."

And what is the "something" we are aiming for here? Simply a life of robust good health in every important area - spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional.

To that end we offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; menus and cooking directions meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in the form of MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity. (Click on the green category tabs at the top of this page to learn more about each section.)

Have a taste and see what you think. If you like what we are serving up, please tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to stop by for a visit, too.
