Tastefully Simple Giveaway!

If you've  been reading this blog for long you know how much I love to cook and eat!
I find it fun to make new and festive dishes and cocktails for parties, holidays and everyday.

That's why I was super excited when I was approached to do a giveaway for Tastefully Simple!

I got a big box in the mail last week with tons of treats!!
Dip, bread, and cocktail mixes!!
Just look at this loot!
I decided that this Juicy Watermelon Margarita mix was perfect for our Fourth of July weekend at the lake!
What is the Fourth of July without watermelon?
Seriously? 
What's even better?
When it's in a cocktail!
I got the idea from, Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is, and cut pieces of watermelon into stars to garnish our cocktails.
WahLah!
I'm here to tell you -- AMAZING.
I'm not exaggerating.
I'm not a fruity-tutti drink girl at all. 
Not a fan of real 'sweet,sweet' drinks.
But this?
Good stuff.
Add a bit of water and tequila into that bucket you saw above, stir and freeze overnight.
This is what you end up with.
Good stuff.
Even Brad liked it and he definitely doesn't like sweet drinks.
We all enjoyed at least one glass a day!
The other item that I decided to make for the holiday weekend was this guacamole dip mix.
I simply added a few ripe avocados and mixed it in with one of the packets and some water.
Again, delish!
I'm not one to harp on things being good when they're not really good, but this was some good guacamole.
I served it with a few chips and it was a hit.
Again, Brad gave it a big thumbs up and he TOTALLY isn't one to say something is good when it's not.
Even my own Mom thought it was great as well.
Now for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Tastefully Simple so, you too, can try out some of their tasty mixes.

OMG...I LOVE Tastefully Simple! My mother turned me on to it a few years ago. I had never heard of it before then.

My absolute fave is the Tuscan Cheese Ball, but I don't believe they carry it anymore? I tried to order it, but couldn't find it on the site :(

My next fave is the Perfectly Potato Cheddar Soup Mix. Mmmm.... Oh, and the Sweet Pepper Jalapeno Jam! Pour that over cream cheese and people go wild :)
