New Giveaways Coming Soon!!

August 17th, 2012 by Stephanie O'Dea

I am happy to announce that we will hosting daily (Monday-Friday) giveaways beginning September 10th  on I’ve always wanted a dedicated place to give back to my phenomenal online community, but got a little bogged down trying to figure it all out.

I’ve done daily giveaways in the past, and loved the variety of items, and all of your fabulous comments, support, and interest.

Thank you!

I am so thankful to Lisa Irvine, who has agreed to come on board as my Official Chief GiveAway Wrangler.

Lisa will be in charge of all things Give Away— if you are a small (or large, we’re not all that picky) business and would like to see your products featured in this space, please email to line up a review and give away opportunity!

Lisa is a stay-at-home mom who lives in Upstate NY with her husband and daughter.  Lisa has had several careers from retail store manager to executive secretary to data analyst.  She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in November 2007 and has been a gluten-free blogger since March 2008.  In her spare time, Lisa enjoys shopping, movies, traveling, and reading.


I am pleased to announce that Lisa Irvine will begin posting daily giveaway posts on beginning Monday, September 10th, just in time for the Holiday shopping season.  The posts will run daily Monday-Friday, with the giveaway winners announced on Saturday mornings.

You may contact her directly at for any giveaway questions and/or scheduling needs.

The site is tied into the A Year of Slow Cooking website and Totally Together Journal. These websites garner more than 4 million page impressions a month and have over 70 thousand daily subscribers.

Lisa will review, photograph, and upload a positive post and host a giveaway to this target audience, and will actively promote the giveaways posts through appropriate social media channels. Please limit all food to strictly gluten free products. Giveaway posts in the past have received over 1000 comments. Please see examples, here:
