To celebrate we are giving away our favorite products. We want you to have only the best of the best ingredients when you are making our recipes. Yesterday we gave away Gift Baskets from Navitas Naturals and Big Tree Farms. That giveaway is still open- so be sure to go enter there too!

What are we giving away today?

Simply Organic Gift Pack:

Simply Organic pure vanilla extract is the absolute best, we were so happy when they offered to send one lucky winner a package of their almond extract, lemon flavor, orange flavor, peppermint flavor, vanilla extract, and Ugandan vanilla extract. Their products are as pure as they come, and this valuable package will last you forever. This giveaway is open to addresses in the continental U.S. only.

NuNaturals Gift Pack:

Iris and I decided early on not to do stevia-based recipes in these books, but we do give lots of tips on how to adapt recipes to use stevia, as well as our favorite brands. And NuNaturals is it! NuNaturals stevia unlike most other brands is not bitter. I use it on a daily basis, and you'll find many sugar free recipes here calling for it. Today NuNaturals is giving away not one, but four gift packs that will include: one box of NuStevia Packets, and one bottle of NuNaturals Vanilla Liquid Stevia. This giveaway is open to addresses in the continental U.S. only.

Triumph Dining Gift Packs:

Trimph Dining is our publisher. And we absolutely loved working with the team there! Today, they're giving away a gift pack of their Gluten-Free Grocery and Restaurant Guides. These are essential for anyone who needs help in navigating shopping and eating out gluten-free. They are the perfect gift especially for someone new to gluten free living or to those traveling and looking for great safe places to eat! I found several gluten free restaurants in my area that I had never been to- thanks to my guide!

There will be six winners for this giveaway (winners posted on Friday), and six winners for the same giveaway on Iris's site today as well! You have until midnight on Thursday so start getting those entries in! Here are all the ways you can enter.

    I am so excited about Triumph Dining’s other resources!
    I will probably look into to setting some of my poor-college-student/ starving-artist 😉 spending money towards getting some of these resources to some of my dear friends, who are gluten free- due to health issues. I love love the the Dining cards, available in 10 different languages. too cute, and so helpful.

  48. Michelle M

    I would love to win the Simply Organic basket! So many delicious extracts to work with, who wouldn’t love that? The dining and shopping guide would be my second choice, though. I’m certainly curious what options there might be in my area.

  49. rudy

    I like Simply Organics commitment to supporting organic agriculture in general and not just promoting by their own example. That extra step can really affect the growth of healthy living, organic business, and happiness all around

  58. Melissa Herrera

    I’m so excited for you publishing your first cookbook! Congrats to you! By the way, I would love to win the NuNaturals gift pack!

  59. Melissa Herrera

    I forgot to tell you what I like about each website you mentioned. Simply Organic makes it easy to cook foods without synthetic chemicals which are harmful to our health. NuNatural stevias are a great way to sweeten without raising the blood sugar. They have a nice variety of flavors, too. Triumph Dining can take the worry out of going out to eat or shopping for food.

    Thanks for all you do! I have learned so much from you and benefitted from it all. God bless you!!!!!!

  60. Rachel Blom

    I would love to win any of the gift packs but the one at the top of my list is the Simply Organics gift pack.

  109. Rebecca

    I love how much information they provide on their websites!

  113. Brenda

    Would love the Simply Organic gift pack.

  114. Jana Shows

    Simply Organic products are awesome because they are high quality and whoever is in charge of the marketing has been able to get them in almost every grocery store I go to. Even when I travel, I can always find them and it is so awesome to have brand recognition so I don’t have to read every label on products I don’t know. To that, I would love Simply Organic’s giveaway package so I can continue to bake on!

    Ps. I am 5 months pregnant and have been baking up a storm…this is my way of nesting. =)

  115. lindsey

    i want to win the stevia! love nunaturals!!

  120. John Billiris

    I’d like to win the NuNaturals Gift Pack:

  121. John Billiris

    I learned that Simply Organic donates 1% of Simply Organic sales to encourage more organic farming.

  122. John Billiris
  123. Margaret

    Simply organic for me. Most of my spice rack comes from them, and when it comes to their flavorings – I am *severely* sensitive to many synthetic chemicals & fragrances – so I know their wonderful organic products will be safe for me to eat!

  124. Brianne

    Would love love love the Triumph Dining giftpack!

  125. Eliza Garvey

    I was informed about your website yesterday, and am so thankful. My 12 year old has nut allergies, but also was diagnosed with Crohns disease a year and half ago. None of the drug treatments seem to be helping, so we decided to see a homeopathic Dr and revamp her whole diet! Aka- a whole lot of No foods! It’s been a struggle, but this website and others are going to be very helpful! Thank you!!

  126. Margaret

    woops – just read that it should be a separate comment for each entry. 🙂 So I also love that Simply Organic uses fair trade spices and contributes profits to organic farming research!

  127. Jill Hahn

    I would love to win the Simply Organic gift pack because I like to use quality ingredients in my cooking.

  128. Suzanne

    I would really love to win any of the above. Since you are making us choose I would love the Simply Organic gift pack. When I went onto the their web page I learned that they offer many flavors that I didn’t know about. Can’t wait to try some lemon or almond. So nice that they make gluten products that I can use knowing we will be allergy safe:)

  129. Hallie

    Let me first say congratulations on your big release!! Can’t wait to see your books. Would love to win the Simply Organic package!

  130. Kelsey Noll

    The Triumph Dining pack would be perfect for me – I found out I have celiac about two weeks ago so I’m still learning a lot about living gluten free. The company seems great and I would love to have so much valuable information compiled at my fingertips!

  131. mittens

    simply organic!

  132. Kristi Gueho

    I finally just preordered both books and with the free super saver shipping, I’m hoping to be doing happy dances in my kitchen on Saturday! I’m not real outgoing when it comes to giveaways and what nots, to be honest I like to buy the products and then tell everyone else how awesome they are. I already use simply organic products in my baking, but not NuNaturals. I’ve been scoping out their website since you mentioned them in a post last week, wondering how I could squeeze some products into my budget. If I had to pick something, I’d love the NuNaturals giveaway, just because I’ve been dying to try it. Congrats to you and iris on all the hardwork y’all put into the books!! Can’t wait to get them!! 🙂

  133. Laurie

    Oh you’re gonna be a superstar! I am so excited about your new books! The giveaways are awesome too! Nunaturals or Simply Organic, either one. They are great products! Pinned your books. Everything looks and sounds amazing! Good luck!!

  140. sal

    Simply organic vanilla is amazing!

  141. sal

    would love either the simply organic or nunaturals gift pack! both are great companies.

  142. Kaitlyn Renfrow

    All 3 gift packs sound great! I would love the simply organic gift pack because I use vanilla all the time and I would love to try some flavored vanillas. It would be awesome to win the nunaturals gift pack also. I have been wanting to try this brand because it has no aftertaste and I am sugar free so I frequently use stevia.

  143. Kaitlyn Renfrow

    I like all the different seasonings and mixes simply organic offers. It is difficult to find these things that are certified gluten free.

  144. Kaitlyn Renfrow

    I love that nunaturals stevia does not have an aftertaste. I am fairly new to using stevia and it has taken me a while to adjust because of the aftertaste. I cannot wait to give this brand a try.

  145. Ari

    Simply Organic products are the best! <3 Thanks for doing this giveaway.

  146. Shannon

    simply organic vanilla is said to be the best I would love to try it

  147. Nikita

    I would love to win Gluter free guide as It would be one stop shop of all my Qs and experiments…Everytime I wanna cook something gluten free, I have to hunt 1001 sites on Internet to find out appropriate healthy replacements….After this Gluten free guide it w0uld be! 🙂

  148. Nicole

    I would love to win the Simply Organic gift pack.

  149. Nicole

    I love the fact that SImply Organic makes so many certified gluten-free products that are also organic.

  150. Jessica A

    I’m torn between all 3! I think I’d have to go with the NuNuturals though!

  151. Jessica A

    I checked out all 3 sites. I will need to try NuNaturals even if I don’t win – seems like Stevia always has a bit of an aftertaste so would be interested to test that theirs does not. I like how it’s not just a sales site but also contains health info.

  152. Jessica A

    I posted about the giveaway on my FB page!

  153. Jessica A

    Pinned the book covers! Thanks for having the Pin It link – I’m sooooo new to Pinterest!

  160. Katie

    Would love the Simply Organic gift pack 🙂

  170. Megan R

    Oh wow! I must buy this book! 🙂 Thank you!! I would LOVE the Simply Organic Gift Pack! So many companies are added corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup in all their extracts and it disgusts me! However, I would also like NuNaturals Gift Pack because I have yet to buy stevia.. I am not used to or nor have I ever cooked with it.. But I am interested! I just have no idea where to start! I also like the Triumph Dining Gift Packs! So many things! 🙂

  171. Megan R

    Visiting Simply Organic I realize how they make quality products that are affordable to us everyday Joes! Everything is organic! EVERYTHING! 🙂 I could not be happier! I must buy!! NuNaturals seems like they are primarily focused on stevia sales..etc. Which I would get into if I knew what to cook and how to convert recipes into stevia recipes! Any help? Sounds wonderful! Another affordable website! Awesome! Triumph Dining would be awesome for my husband to know where to take us when we go out to eat! He feels so limited with my food allergies! So I usually pick the place! (which can get old!)

  172. Megan R

    Posted on my facebook page! 🙂

Thank you!
