Seasoned & Stirred! First Anniversary Giveaway

Wow, how quickly times flies. It seems like just yesterday I conceived the idea of starting the Seasoned & Stirred blog but it was year ago today. THANKS to all of my readers and friends for your support and for inspiring me to keep going when the going got tough!

We've been through a name change (formerly Love With Food), Facebook page drama, periods of inactivity due to sickness and other stuff. Not the smoothest of starts but we've had a lot of good food and fun along the way and I'm thrilled to still be here! I hope I can continue to share my journey with you all as I Season & Stir my way through my next culinary adventure!

To commemorate this special occasion, I'm having a giveaway! I'd like to present one reader/friend with a gift of PAPER (in keeping with traditional wedding anniversary gifts). The lucky winner will receive a copy of An Epiphany of the Senses (paperback) by Nancy Lopez-McHugh (aka Spicie Foodie). This little gem of a cookbook is beautifully illustrated--featuring Nancy's own amazing photography and sumptuous, healthy recipes full of delicious flavors and exotic spices. It's a recipe collection perfect for the absolute beginner to the advance cook.

1. Reply to this post telling me one thing or feature you love about the Seasoned & Stirred! blog. Please also leave your email address as the winner will be notified via email.
