Meatless Monday: Blog, Giveaway, and Recipe Contest Love

I don't have a recipe for today, and instead will be sharing a few things going on in my little bloggy circle...

Mary from Back to the Basics! is quite a woman. She not only grows all of her own vegetables in her own garden, but also cultivates and sells her own seeds! And she makes her own amazing body products, such as vegan lip balms and organic soaps. And she sells her own blends of tea. And she manages a wellness-based chiropractic clinic. AND she wrote and published a cookbook. AND she manages 2 blogs and 2 web shops! I know...she must be Super Woman!

Anyway, besides being super awesome, Mary likes to host equally super awesome giveaways, and this lucky gal has won not one- but two(!) of her giveaways! First I was the lucky winner of the Cocoa Delight vegan lipbalm and Natural Honey lipbalm, both of which I love and use everyday. Then, I was incredibly fortunate enough to win again for her custom-made seed packs and got myself her Salsa Garden Pack!

I looove getting things in the mail! Winning each of these contests really made my day week!

Please visit her main blog here where you will also find links to all of her other pages. She is also hosting yet another amazing giveaway for one of my favorite oils HERE, so you'd better sign up now before I win another one!!! Because you know I already entered!!

Okay, enough about Mary. There really is something about her, though! But, now let's talk about Christina of Mama's High Strung. She has entered her yummy Lazy Lasagna recipe for a chance to win a supercool cooking app for her website. Please Like and Repin her recipe her by scrolling down and looking for her entry HERE. Christina always has such incredible-looking recipes on her blog, I'm sure she could easily win this with enough support!

    Vote for Lazy Spinach Lasagna!

  7. I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
    And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
    Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
    attempting to use the slow internet :)

    I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
    of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
    animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

    Love you!


Thanks for stopping by! I love comments and always want to know what you think :)
