I’ve been blogging actively for a year now. Every single week I have managed to publish a recipe which I have developed more or less from scratch. I have also published a recipe per week in my Finnish blog.
Well, this blog has been a real challenge — sugar-free, gluten-free low-carb recipes with 5 or less natural ingredients, using foreign language and foreign measures — but totally fun! Over 100 000 unique visitors, hundreds of lovely comments. Thank you all! Your great feedback really keeps me going.
I try to perfect my recipes but there is always room for improvement. That’s where your valuable comments really help. Please keep them coming, I appreciate every single comment (not spam, though) 🙂
To show my appreciation to you, I’m doing my first giveaway now. I would like to give you the moon and the stars but since I can’t afford them (and there are some technical issues in between), I’ll give away something more practical: a great compilation of my favorite low-carb goodies and high-quality ingredients for healthy low-carb baking. And, there is a bonus as well: two secret special recipes using super-healthy cold-pressed Finnish sea buckthorn juice, which is included in the compilation. Here is what you might win:
- 2 packs of powdered Zsweet sweetener
- Sukrin Gold, the best brown sugar substitute I’ve tried so far
- Cola stevia
- Cherry flavor (makes great DIY Diet Dr Pepper with the previous one plus some club soda)
- German chocolate, 85 % cacao
- Organic garlic bread seasoning
- Organic creamed coconut
- 100 % Finnish cold-pressed sea buckthorn juice
- + bonus: 2 secret recipes using that sea buckthorn juice!
The worth of the prize is approximately $70 (without the recipes…)
I’ve never done a giveaway before, but now I wanted to try out how it will work in practice. I have purchased all the products myself, except the Zsweet sweetener is sponsored by YesDeli, a great Finnish company which imports and sells high-quality special groceries.
How to participate?
Just simply leave a comment below in the comment field. In your comment, please mention what is your favorite comfort food which is saving your day no matter how dark the clouds are. Something you could eat every day if you could. Not that I just wanted to make something up, no, I’m really interested in that 🙂
You have one week time to participate. The last day to leave a comment is 26th May 2013 after which I randomly choose one lucky winner and let him/her know right away. Please leave your correct e-mail address (won’t be published) so that if you are the lucky winner I can contact you asap. If I don’t reach you within three days (= 72 hours), I have to draw another winner, which I really would hate to do.
If there are some restrictions which apply in your country, I might not be able to ship your prize. In that case I have to pick another winner.
1 comment per person, please. I have a second giveaway on my Facebook page, so if you would like to maximize your chances, you can simply like my page, answer the question there and that’s how you can win almost similar prize! Well, there is still another giveaway in my Finnish blog, but to be able to answer the question there, you have to be able to read and write Finnish 🙂
Good luck everyone (and sorry for using so many smileys… I’m just in a really good mood)! 🙂
P.S. Next week you are going to get a recipe which is perfect for hot summer days…
Update May 27th, 2012:
The winner of my first ever giveaway is Annette. Congratulations! Many thanks for all of you for your kind comments and thanks for participating!
