Now Serving Turns One Today with A Giveaway Bonanza

Now Serving Turns One Today with A Giveaway Bonanza
Now Serving exciting times folks (: My blog is one year old fledgling now. I want to humbly thank everyone who has been visiting me without fail and leaving encouraging comments that really make this blog even more worthwhile to write, even if sometimes it seems like a full-time job (: From the bottom of my heart, I say “ thank you and please keep coming back…
I am thrilled to announce some giveaways at my blog what I like to call the October sweepstakes
There are 7 gifts to giveaway
5 for US residents (exclusively)
3 For Canadian Residents (of the 5 above)
2 For all others
I am happy to announce that Pasta Prima has most graciously offered several exciting giveaways to mark this milestone on my blog – The bummer is that this giveaway is only for my US & Canada audiences. This is simply because they are perishable items or too heavy to consider shipping to far away places.
A little about my Giveaway Sponsors
Those who have visited my blog in the past year know that more often than not I am constantly striving to promote healthy eating habits by providing healthier options for otherwise caloric and unhealthy food.  We are all given to breaking this rule and I am no exception J. If you visit their site, you will see that they take pride in making their pastas as natural as possible and in the most energy efficient ways possible by using green energy. They are also tuned into community causes and currently Breast Cancer Awareness, and giving back to the community. So this company in my books, is a winner all the way :) They seemed genuinely sorry that they could not extend their giveaways to countries beyond the US, BUT
WAIT! I have two incredible books that will be given away to my friends anywhere else in the world besides US or Canada.
Celebrated Chef, Madhur Jaffrey’s Eastern Vegetarian Cooking
And NY Times Best Seller, The Sneaky Chef, by Missy Chase Lapine
Here are the giveaways from Pasta Prima
US residents Exclusive
2 lucky winners win 3 Pasta Prima Ravioli flavors shipped directly to your home (US only, we are perishable!)
US & Canada 
3 lucky winners win a pasta bowl each
**Plus a coupon for free Pasta Prima Ravioli for US Residents only
