Winning Back Your Love: Cake Balls Giveaway

by Kerry on March 29, 2011 · 34 comments

Oh hey, remember me?

My mom and a few others are very concerned over the welfare of Snark & Pepper. Ready to hear some excuses? Here we go…

When this blog was born, I was living with my parents and I did not have a job. I would post on here either right after I cooked something or the next day. Now that I have a job and some semblance of a life, it just doesn’t work that way anymore. Recipes started piling up, and I’d get a little overwhelmed every time I’d sit down to write so I took a blog hiatus. I am trying to find a better method, and whether that is mapping out posts for the month or having a set time each week that I will sit down and post, I have yet to decide how I will start showing up here more often. BUT, I am back.

I hear your cries for attention and here’s how I’ll make my absence up to you: I’m gonna send one lucky person some cake balls (flavor to be determined). I successfully mailed out my first batch of cake balls, so I am confident they will arrive to the winner in decent, if not perfect, condition. And FYI…cake balls are insanely tasty. cakeballs

Here are the rules, because I like making rules/telling people what to do:

1. Leave a comment telling me a dish you’d like to see me make. Also feel free to tell me you have missed me. Include your correct email when filling out the comment or else I won’t be able to notify you if you’ve won.

2. The contest will close on Friday, April 1, at 11:59 pm. Any entries received after this will not be counted.

3. You must live in the continental United States. Sorry international readers (all 2 of you), but I cannot afford to ship to you plus I think customs officials would eat the cake balls.

4. Winner will be chosen at random by a random number generator.

Want to receive extra entries? In addition to leaving a comment, you can receive one extra entry per each of the below.

  • Post a link to the giveaway on Facebook
  • Tweet about the giveaway, including a link to this post and my Twitter handle (@snarkandpepper)
  • Subscribe to my RSS feed
  • Sign up to receive email updates (little email symbol over in the right sidebar)

Once you have done any of the extra entry requirements, please send me a quick email at snarkandpepper at gmail dot come telling me you have done so (honor system, please!).

I will make the cake balls this weekend, notify the winner on Saturday, and aim to ship them out on Sunday. I make no guarantees but the winner can expect to have cake balls in their possession before next weekend.

Good luck and start commenting!

I think it would be great to do a blog series on brunch… I specifically like this idea because I can reap the benefits :)

My vote is to blog about recipes for hosting (apps, dinners, deserts, etc). Maybe even a spring/ summer theme for the upcoming season. It could be formal recipes or even a quick whip up for when friends come to the pool.

Kerry March 30, 2011 at 11:01 am

Love this idea, Happy! Thanks for the comment :)

After giving birth to my baby boy 11 weeks ago, I am taking my first attempt to start losing the rest of my baby weight. With that said, I can’t believe about to ask for this, but I would love to see a good old mac and cheese soufle/casserole receipe. Perhaps on the lighter side if possible =)

gabby March 30, 2011 at 11:01 pm

What an amazing giveaway! Pick me! :) I love everything you post, but I guess right now I’m just looking for really fresh, healthy recipes. Spring time and all :)

Reply

Jen March 31, 2011 at 12:15 am

yum yum yum. i missed you, although this is the first time i’ve seen your blog. i would like to see your version of macaroni and cheese. or maybe mac and cheese balls.

Reply

Lisa March 31, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Yea so glad you’re back…with cake balls no less (cake…balls??). I have been suffering from food poisoning for the past 24 hours and am just emerging from my haze, therefore anything mildly pasta related sounds lovely to me. Something with peas maybe?? Off to drink some tea, and celebrate my 4 pound weight loss, even if it lasts just today.

Maybe a Paleo recipe? I’m better than you because I Crossfit.

Laurie March 31, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Kerry, boy I missed your blog. It always makes me smile, and very hungry…. How about any type of cuban food. I know your Mom would love that also. Ole’ Ole’….. Thanks.

Kerry, great contest! Cake balls!

It’s spring so I say make something springy. Spring lamb? Something mediterranean. Greek? Spanish? yeah, like that.
