Thundershirt giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

Remember the review I recently wrote about Thundershirt? I told you it was not a sponsored post, that they didn’t know me or Basil.

Well, they do now! They got in touch with me after reading my review, and they have offered to send a Thundershirt to one lucky doggie who reads spabettie. I am really excited to be able to offer this, as I know how much it has helped our sweet Basil.

See? Basil likes his so much it makes his tail wag. The Thundershirt comes in many sizes and even after you pick the size that is right for your pup, it wraps and is adjustable, so it’s like a custom snug fit.

To read more about them, see my review.

MacroBar giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

I know I often proclaim that something is my favorite thing. I have a lot of favorites, what can I say?

I really want to stress the importance of that designation with MacroBars. These are incredible! I have seen them around, but had not tried one until very recently. Within a few hours of enjoying that first bar, I had ordered two cases.

MacroBar recently sent me even more. I have tried most of the flavors (um, Tahini Date? yes please. Cashew Caramel? swoon.) and love them all. I am sharing some of these with you. By some I mean a whole case. With a few extras thrown in. I want you to get each and every delectable flavor, and some of them, I want you to have two.

I’m jealous of this giveaway.

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) If you could make any flavor bar, what would it be?

2) Tweet this –>

Sahale giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

To many of you, this is old news – cashews are my favorite snack. I always have a large supply of raw cashews from the bulk bin in my pantry, not only do I snack on them I cook with them a lot. Well, un-cook?

Sahale snacks are my favorite travel snack, it has become routine that I pick up a couple bags before getting on an airplane. Cashews with pomegranate and vanilla? The first flavor I tried, and while it will always be my favorite, I have tried others. The Valdosta pecans with cranberries, black pepper and orange zest is really good, and is a perfect holiday flavor. The next holiday gathering I have will definitely see a bowl of Valdosta pecans.

Three winners will be chosen to receive full size bags of each of my favorite flavors.

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) What is your favorite snack?

plate to pixel giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

Photography has been a interest of mine since high school, where I first learned my way around camera settings (and had access to a dark room, because in the olden days there was film!). As far as food photography, I was taking food photos way before the blog. and… as far as food photography, I still have a lot to learn. I love to play with my camera, it is always fun to see what it can do!

When learning something, I am more of a hands-on learner rather than a reader. However, I do have excellent resources I turn to, and Plate to Pixel is my favorite. Packed with essential information and stunning photography examples, this book is also just fun to read.

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) What is your favorite subject to take photos of?

2) Tweet this –>

rawxies giveaway!

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

Ever since we completed the juice fast, I have loved learning more about raw foods. I ate raw before, but I am getting more creative and we really love how we feel when we eat raw.

Callie, the inspirational wonder behind the blog rawxy and the creator of rawxies cookies, is someone who is passionate about eating raw and describes it as life changing – I definitely know what she means! She started writing her blog as a way to get the word out that eating raw is not “ditching their makeup and snacking on tree bark” and it was met with good response! Eventually the rawxies cookie was born.

Each cookie is handmade –  rolled, cut and packaged by hand – Callie describes rawxies as “bridging the gap between the bakery and the grocery store; sold on a wholesale base (with an extended shelf-life), but made in a very traditional bakery setting”.

Callie recently sent me some heart shaped deliciousness, and she wanted to be a part of my season of giving back as well!

Giveaway is for each flavor of rawxies – plus a ‘foxy raw’ tee shirt. The flavors include: chocolate cacao nib, banana nut bread, cinnamon walnut raisin, mint chocolate chip, cranberry pecan and lemon poppyseed. I cannot pick a favorite, I love them all. Okay! If I had to, the lemon poppyseed. and the mint chocolate chip.

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) Which flavor of rawxy cookie sounds best to you?

2) Tweet this –>

coffee and chocolate giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

Over the last several months, I have been able to sample the limited edition Godiva flavors – you might recall a recipe or two I made with them. As much as I’m not really a flavored coffee fan, I liked these! I really like baking with them, but as a cup of coffee, these are good. So I got some to share – the Pumpkin Spice and the Caramel Pecan Bark.

I also picked up some of my favorite chocolate. The Endangered Species Supreme Dark is one of my favorites – I use it often for baking and sauces – I call it the chocolate with the monkey.

Have you had the Midnight Crunch quinoa chocolate yet? Well now you can. This is yummy. I am also giving away a couple of my favorites from right here in Portland – an Orange Ginger and a Spiced Chai. So good.

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) What is your favorite chocolate? Flavored coffee – yes or no?

2) Tweet this –>
