Vote for me!

I learned last week I am one of the five national finalists in the Amy's Kitchen/Lundberg Rice Pasta contest.  You'll recall I posted my entry here a couple of weeks ago.

This truly is a surprise and an honor.  And for the next couple weeks, I'm going to keep asking you to vote for me.

Why vote for me? Because my recipe is easy. It's gluten free. And it's delicious for a late summer dinner (or breakfast).  Because you love me?

So here's what you do:

Go here to Amy's Organics Page and the Poll application: 

or, go to the Lundberg Farms FB Page and vote:

Here's the back story of the event -- see how you can get swag just for voting!

Amy's and Lundberg Family Farms are dedicated to serving the gluten free community, and we'd like to invite you to participate in a recipe contest. We challenged some of our favorite bloggers and their readers to create a gluten freevegetarian recipe using any Lundberg Family Farms Brown Rice Pasta and any Amy's Pasta Sauce. The folks at Amy’s and Lundberg have tested each of these recipes, but we want you to tell us which one you like the best!
We’ll send you a free recipe book and coupon booklet when you vote and “like” both the Amy's and Lundberg Facebook pages. Clickhere to register for your free booklet. Voting will last two weeks, and the winner will be announced on September 7th 2010.

Which recipe is your favorite? Check these recipes out on our Notes tab, then vote on the Polls tab!

1.      Super Veggie Spaghetti Pancake  *MY RECIPE

2.      Spicy Mushroom Penne

3.      Spaghetti Pie

4.      Pasta Primavera Fra Diavolo

5.      Pizzaghetti

I'm number one in the list, but clearly right now I'm sucking wind.

It does require you to install the POLL function. And then you'll see how it's going.

Vote early, tell your friends, and help me make a decent showing here.

Much love, and vote GING!

A Great Giveaway from Yoplait and MyBlogSpark

I don't know about you, but there's nothing more refreshing to me in summer than a cool dish of yogurt.

Now Yoplait Yogurt *reliably gluten free, read the label to be sure* has a new product called Yoplait Splitz, coming to a grocer near you.

To quote the company:

Now you can drive past your local sweet shop without looking back. Yoplait Splitz is the new yogurt that tastes like a sundae. Providing all of the goodness of 100% real yogurt, Yoplait Splitz is a good source of calcium and vitamin D. With no artificial flavors or sweeteners and no high fructose corn syrup, this 90 calorie dessert is the treat your family craves. 

For an even “cooler” experience, just pop a Yoplait Splitz in the freezer and in a few hours you can enjoy a cool, creamy cup of authentic frozen yogurt. Available in three delicious flavor combinations including Strawberry Sundae, Strawberry Banana Split, and Rainbow Sherbet, Yoplait Splitz is sure to have your family screaming for more.
