Share Your Recipes and a Giveaway!

***The Giveaway has ended. Thanks for the great recipes!!***

A friend recently emailed me and asked me for ideas for blogs that feature simple and healthy recipes. I follow several food blogs and they feature tons of delicious recipes, but often they are pretty fancy, complicated or time consuming. I realized that many of my favorite weeknight recipes come from "normal people." This got me thinking.

I am asking you to send me your favorite "go to" recipes. I will share them here so that we can all get some new ideas and inspiration. AND to provide a little incentive to you to share some recipes, for every recipe you submit, you will be entered to win a fabulous giveaway! What is the prize you ask?! A $20 gift card to- none other than my favorite store- LOFT!

The Nitty-Gritty:
-Recipes should be relatively simple, nothing really time consuming or fancy. Save those recipes for a later recipe exchange.

-Recipes should be relatively healthy. No Paula Deen donut burgers or anything :)

-Give credit where credit is due. Give the source of your recipe if it is not your original.

-Email the recipes to me at or my personal email if you have it. Feel free to include a picture if you can, but this is not required.

-You will receive one giveaway drawing entry per recipe submitted. Multiple entries are encouraged :)

-Recipe submission deadline is Thursday, March 10, 2011 at midnight. This gives you 2 weeks to get your act together.

-The LOFT gift card drawing will happen on Friday, March 11, 2011.

-Now GO! Email me some recipes and I will start sharing them!

Note: LOFT is not affiliated with this giveaway. I just thought it would be a good prize.

Oh my -- and I do need some new clothes to fit my weird post partum bod. I'm all frantic trying to think which of my recipes are even that good! The only ones I can think of are not the healthiest!!! If we send them to you and you don't think they look good, I hope you won't blog them. :) Love you.
