Giveaways and Sunday Brunch

I meant to share this earlier, but congratulations to Ericke for winning the Slow Cooker Giveaway!

SlimKicker has contacted you for your address 🙂

Also, I am so excited to have won Taylor’s PB Crave giveaway this week as well!

I have heard a lot of great things about their products, and I can’t wait to try it!


This weekend, I drove back to Raleigh to spend time with the family for a couple days. One of my grandmas was also visiting this week, so I got to see her as well.

One of the best things about having my grandma over is eating her delicious food. [side note: she was so impressed that I knew how to cook bitter melon]. However on Sunday, my mom took over the cooking for a Mexican/Colombian/American brunch.

Chorizo, a mexican sausage, scrambled with eggs

Arepas, a Colombian cornmeal patty, stuffed with shredded mozzarella.

Southern cheese grits

and lots of pancakes! I decided to opt out of the pancakes, since I have been eating them all week in order to test my vegan pancake recipe.

Any exciting weekend eats?


Giveaway: Slow Cooker

I am really excited about my first giveaway opportunity!

Recently, Slimkicker, a healthy living/fitness app and website contacted me about hosting a giveaway on my blog!

SlimKicker is a calorie counter and game that turns your diet and fitness goals into a level-up game with points, rewards and challenges. The site also has diet recipes for many diets such as Medifast and Weight Watchers. You level up by tracking healthy calories and exercises, and completing challenges such as quitting soda for a week.

The challenge part is where you come in; Slimkicker is looking for new challenges for their app, and wants to hear your ideas for workout and healthy living challenges. So think of a measurable way to get healthier or more fit, and write your idea in the comment section.

The winner (as chosen by Slimkicker) will receive this Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker. Unfortunately, the contest is only open to US residents, but everyone else should enter!

To enter just leave a comment with your challenge idea for SlimKicker’s app, and I will announce the winner next Monday.
