My 4 Year Blogoversary Giveaway

by Laura

Four years ago today, I started my blog.  As part of my celebration of this milestone and to thank my readers, I am providing a giveaway of a few of my favorite things for one lucky reader.  The giveaway will include:

  • a copy of my cookbook
  • a cookie scoop – which I use for more than just cookies.  It is great to add cupcake batter to your pans, make meatballs, etc.
  • A set of pans with lids – one is the sheet pan size which I use for many sweet treats!  The other is a 9 x 13 size which is perfect if you don’t need to feed a crowd and just want to make half a recipe.  I also love that they come with these great snap on lids for easy transportation.

To enter, just leave a comment telling me what you love about my blog or how you found my blog.  You will have an entire week to enter.  You will have unto Wednesday April 25 at midnight (MST) to enter.

My friend made your chocolate zucchini brownies and shared some with us, then I had to get the recipe and I’ve been following you ever since.

I been reading you bog for about 2 years now, I love the way you keep your recipes simple. It easy too understand and made with ingredients that are already on hand. Reading your blog, and a few others I love, is one of the reason I’m starting my own blog. Happy Blogoversary !! and many many more. I hope my bog would be as good. Thank you for inspiring me.

Robyn April 19, 2012 - 5:18 pm

I really forgot how I found your blog, but I love reading it- even if I don’t make the recipes. My favorite recipe that I found from your blog with the sweet pork (Cafe Rio) for tacos or quesadillas- I’ve made it at least once a month since I found it and there is great rejoicing throughout the land when my family walks in the door and smells it. It will be feeding the starving campers at Girls Camp this summer. Thanks!

Mandy Kirk April 19, 2012 - 4:54 pm

I love how family friendly your recipes are as well as the fact that I usually have most of the ingredients on hand. Or know what they are so I can find them at the store. I also recently found out about your daugther and I have a son with special needs, and that usually makes me more inclined to stick around knowing what you do, and still make amazing recipes 🙂

shirley elizabeth April 19, 2012 - 4:54 pm

I completely forget how I found your blog, but I LOVE the simple and do-able recipes you post and also the links to other places to find the same, or cool kitchen gadgets, or whatever. A good staple blog.

Laura April 19, 2012 - 3:52 pm

I found your blog when someone in the recipe group I belong to posted your Grilled Chicken Breast Tostadas, which is now a regular in my meal plan rotation. Both my husband and my picky 7 year old love that meal. We’ve also tried your homemade instant oatmeal and the creamy tomato soup (and I’m sure others that I’m not not remembering as yours) and I’ve got several of your recipes bookmarked in my “to try soon” folder.

Leslie April 19, 2012 - 3:51 pm

I can’t not remember how I found your blog. I have it in my google reader and always look forward to what you will post next.

I love that you usually use ingredients that I already have on hand and it is something my kids will eat!

Becky @lovetobeinthekitchen April 19, 2012 - 3:43 pm

Kaylinne April 19, 2012 - 3:23 pm

I LOVE your blog because the name says it all. You’re a real mom and I like that you make “real mom” food that is just “normal” and not complicated. I really enjoy your blog and appreciate that you share your recipies. Thanks so much!

Maria April 19, 2012 - 3:21 pm

I luckily found your blog last year while searching for something to make for dinner. I instantly fell in love! Your recipes are so easy to follow and they are ingredients that I mostly already have in my kitchen (which is my favorite kind of recipe)! I’ve tried so many of your recipes and they’ve all been a hit! I know that when I am in a bind and can’t figure out what to make I can just cruise over to your blog and see what pops out at me first.

I love real mom kitchen blog. I found it while browsing recipe blogs during a “nursing” session with my newborn. My favorite thing has got to be the garlic knots!!!

Jenny April 19, 2012 - 9:15 am

I’ve been following your blog for a few years. I love that your recipes are for food that my family would eat and they don’t have crazy ingredients that I wouldn’t already have at home.

McKenzey April 19, 2012 - 9:15 am

I remember your first blog anniversary. I started following your blog for the family friendly recipes.

Jodie April 19, 2012 - 9:03 am

I love that your site is just what it advertises, food that a real mom would make. Keep up the great blogging. 😀

I’ve been reading for years… probably since the beginning & thus I have no idea how I came across your blog! I remember some of your first blog looks and have always appreciated your recipes & inspiration in the kitchen. Thanks for being such a great blogger – you are someone I’ve always looked up to.

Congrats on 4 years… doesn’t quite seem possible! But, yet, here we are. My blog began 4 years ago too.

Chelsea April 19, 2012 - 7:44 am

I heard about you when the news talked about your blog one night!

Stefanie April 19, 2012 - 7:37 am

Your recipes are simple enough that the occassional cook like myself can follow them. they are also reliable enough that I can trust that a new recipe will turn out…and that my family will like it! I can’t remember how I found your blog, but I follow it religiously in my Google Reader now!

Lauren April 19, 2012 - 7:31 am

I love your blog because the recipes you post are recipes i will actually (and have) use. They have “normal” ingredients and are delish! And your photos are very inspiring to make the recipes too! You give great directions too. 🙂

Julie A April 19, 2012 - 7:29 am

Happy Bloggie Day! I can’t remember how I found your blog. I know I found it before I discovered Pinterest, so probably through a food website like Foodgawker or tastespotting.
