iPad Giveaway!!!

I feel guilty that I have not been posting as regularly on my blog the past few weeks. I've dropped from 3-5 recipes per week to 1. Can we spell L.O.S.E.R.

To make it up to you all.... I teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to give one lucky reader an iPad!

 
I think iPads are fabulous. I use mine in the kitchen on a daily bases for browsing recipes, music, reading new books, games for the kids on long car rides, movies, the list goes on.  I love my iPad so much I want you to have one as well! To enter to win follow the directions on rafflecopter widget below and be sure to leave a comment telling me how you would use an iPad if YOU won!

A huge thanks to my friends who joined in on the fun and helped put this giveaway together. Be sure to go check them all out after you enter to win!

  57. I find SO many recipes online that I'd love to make/try, yet it seems when I print them out, if I don't use them right away...they get lost in the "shuffle" of a busy kitchen. Also, filing all of those pages is a space taking hassle (my kitchen is compact - aka - SMALL). While I know that is a minor use of an iPad's featires - it is something I would use it for every day! (and I would use it everywhere - news, checking blogs, Facebook, email, etc). Thank you for your blog and for the giveaway opportunity. Mary Prevost

    I am loosing my job next week and have not been able to find one in six months of searching. Where one door closes, another one opens. That has not held true for me so I am opening my own door. My daughter and I are starting our own busines called Wholesome Beginnings Day Care. We would us the IPad as our main computer for the business as I have no computer to start our business. We will also be incorporating a curriculum in healthy eating, gardening, and cooking with the older kiddos. We can't wait to teach them about healthy eating and growing vegetable and harvesting from our fruit trees that will be ready in the next two years.
