Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog. I'm so happy to be participating in the Giveaway Day! This is going to be fun.

I recently learned how to crochet. And I made this blanket. Actually, I made a pink one for my little girl. Then I decided to try another. It's the size of a crib mattress. And I think this white blanket, would be perfect, for either a boy or a girl.

Now for the giveaway. You have until May 29th, 11:59pm mst. I'm only shipping to the USA. All you have to do, is leave me a comment with your favorite recipe. Or a link to it. Good luck everyone! :

Ooh, what a yummy quilt (pun intended)! My favorite recipe is probably this sweet pork, posted on my blog. At the moment, anyway, that's my favorite. At 6 months pregnant these things change quickly :)

1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce

Set oven to 350.
Brown meat with onion and mushrooms.
Set Aside, Combine Cottage Cheese with Mozzarella in medium/large bowl. Mix in ground beef mixture, until it's mixed well, and should look fairly disturbing.

Start stuffing shells with your concoction.
Line shells up together in pan.
Smother with the rest of the sauce, make sure each shell is covered with sauce. Cover tightly with foil.

Remove foil.
Bake an additional 5 minutes.

super cute! I'm not the worlds greatest cook and my recipes are more like 'toss all the veggies in a pan with oil & garlic, saute and throw on top of noodles' but, well there you have it. I make a mean plate of nachos, too. :O)

Meadow said...

My standby is roasted broccoli:
1 cookie sheet of broccoli
Spritz with olive oil
Grind on pepper and salt

Roast at 400-450 until softish and brownish. Shake the pan periodically. Takes about 15-20 minutes. Delicious!

Phoenix Peacock said...

but I replace duck with chicken.

What a great give away. I'd be delighted to win!

Emily said...

Easy and quick:

1 lb ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup (or so) sour cream
egg noodles

Cook the noodles and the beef (separately) and then add the cream of mushroom soup to the beef. Cook until bubbling and then take off the heat and stir in the sour cream. You can also add a drained can of mushrooms. Easy beef stroganoff! :)

Mary / Touch of Heaven said...

My favorite recipe is lasagna. I use cottage cheese, speghetti sauce, ground beef, egg and parm cheese, layered with moz cheese between the noodles and topped with cheddar. I always add a little sugar to my sauce.

Sharleen said...

Beautiful blanket! Fav recipe is so easy, it makes a quick snack for the kiddos- take burrito wrap, their favorite topping and cheese, put wrap on a cookie sheet or pizza sheet, cover with topping and cheese, cook at 350* for about 6-8 mins cut up and eat!

Tamie said...

What a generous prize. Thanks for participating in the giveaway day. We joined a CSA for the first time this year and have been roasting all kinds of vegetables- whatever cut about the same size, drizzled with olive oil and salt and pepper. Baked around 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. A sprinkle of parmesan cheese never hurts either.

RyanSarahN said...

I love it! It's gorgeous! My cousin is having a baby, a couple days past her due date, probably today! Would be a perfect gift. :-)

recipe: noodles- cooked, sauteed green peppers, onions, and garlic-in butter. Add cooked noodles to the pan with the sauteed veggies on medium heat. (this may sound gross, but it's simple and yummy) add black pepper and a pinch of salt, then add 3/4 cup to 1 cup of cottage cheese. add some hot sauce and stir until melted.

my 6 year old and my hubby love it. but hate cold cottage cheese. :-)

Add a dollop of dulce de leche to each cupcake...don't will sink.

Oh my online find recipe is for the yummiest pineapple pork roast in the crock pot! Super easy SUPER yummy! find it here:

A tip: I always double the recipe for the seasoning ingredients and use the extra pineapple chunk juices over white rice. I never even use the flour to make gravy

Green onions cut up (optional)
As much mayonnaise as you would like.
