Seasonal Sunday and a Giveaway ( 01-16-11)

Its my Favorite Day Again. The MOST inspiring day of the week.

Lets get right to business:

This week I am excited to highlight an Incredibly talented Blogger all the way from Switzerland! I have been happily visiting this site often for months. A Big shout out today goes to the Lovely Jenn from Jenn Cuisine. Not only do her recipes enchant the soul- but her photography is exquisite. Check out Jenn's Recipe for Sweet Orange Chicken!

My Recipe Submission this week is a simple and happy weekend breakfast meal.

I was rather surprised just how easy crepes could be made Minus- Gluten,Dairy, Soy,Rice and Eggs. Especially the Egg Part! To see the recipe Click on the Link Above πŸ™‚

And for the GIVEAWAY. This week I am SO excited to share with you a company that I discovered just before the holidays. A company that shares my last name. (by chance). and just so happenes to make an extremely delicious Candy Bar that met my dietary requirements. (YAY!)

May I introduce to you:

Today I will be sharing an Entire Box of Dark Angell Bars (12 Candy Bars) These Bars Are Organic, Gluten Free and Vegan. Again.. Did I mention how tasty these are? We ordered boxes for our family across the country this Christmas. (And they were loved by all)

*I must apologize- the Box does not say "Gluten Free" -However the list of ingredients shows these bars to be Gluten Free Making them Safe to the Gluten Intolerant. I have contacted the company owner and will know by the end of the day if these bars are Celiac Safe, If you win the Giveaway I will make you aware to this and give you the option to receive these Bars or Pass them on the the next name drawn.*

  2. Patricia LaComb

    My favorite seasonal is monkfish (and I am glad to know to
    look for this now, since I never know when it is available). My
    least favorite is chicken livers.

    So, I looked at those candy bars and they contain oats and I can't find anywhere that they're actually gluten-free. Did you contact the company to ask about that?

    Thanks for letting me know about Seasonal Sundays – what a
    great idea for a linky! I love your crepe recipe, and thank you for
    introducing me to Jenn's lovely blog too.

    My favorite would definitely be Avocado. I grew up surrounded by groves in the Avocado capital of the world. And water chestnuts make me think of choking down casseroles in the 70's. Bleh.

  6. laxsupermom

    My favorite seasonal ingredient would be greens – I like them all. Collard, Spinach, Kale, Chard, yum. My least favorite would be venison. Even back when I ate mammals, choking down something so gamey was not enjoyable. Ick.

    Awww thanks for such sweet words and the shout out, you are too kind! My submission this week is one of my favorite things to eat in the Winter, French onion soup πŸ™‚

    Brittany – thank you again for the gracious invitation to
    participate in Seasonal Sunday! You don't need to enter me to win
    the candy bars (I've given up candy along with grains and vegetable
    oils LOL), but my favorite seasonal food from your list is probably
    Kabocha squash – I only bought 2 during The Great Winter Squash
    Hunt Of 2010 and regret it; they are delicious. My least favorite?
    Grains of any kind…we just don't get along. πŸ™‚
