I WON a Pasta Maker!!!


I know that sounds funny. It's just that dorky me didn't even know I had entered a giveaway. But I did and I won! Here's what happened. A few weeks ago, I was reading the blog of one of my new blogging friends Cheryl. She has a wonderful blog called Healing Woman and had sent me the beautiful Dreamcatcher for the Wishing tree I wrote about, in my last post. Well, she wrote this very detailed, yummy recipe post about this fantastic lasagna. Homemade noodles, roasted tomatoes, she even had the recipe for making the ricotta, the whole nine yards! Now I know that for those of you that don't know me in my "real" everyday life you may not know that I cook. But I do and so does my creative husband Ernie.


Here's a few Eats we've made...

My Lemon Cake
(pretty easy, just used one those fancy flower pans)


Potato Cheese Empanadas & Chimichurri
Ernie makes a killer flaky dough!


Mango Berry Mosaic
Another flashy,but pretty yummy ice-cream, sorbet treat,
perfect for serving in the ODLS!


Ernie's Red Velvet Cupcakes my Lenten
(oops I mean, Easter favorite)


Seafood Paella


You get the idea. But my point is we love to cook and of course eat. With that said, you can understand how entranced I was at the sight of Cheryl's inspiring food post. So I commented. I had to! Well if you commented you were automatically entered in this amazing giveaway for this beautiful pasta maker. And I WON!
Ernie & I have been wanting to do the homemade pasta thing for quite some time now, but never seem to get around to it. I think having this fun gadget to assist us might be just the thing!I'll let you know when it arrives!

Thanks again Cheryl !
I hope to make you proud :)

Oh my gosh, you don't need a bit of help with your cooking! That seafood paella looks fabulous as does the tomato cheese empanadas and cake and everything! Yum. I'm sending a link of your post to CSN with hopes that they hurry along the pasta maker!

Beautiful post and thanks so much for the link.

Hugs,
Cheryl

Hi Laura~ I posted a comment earlier but apparently it didn't take. I said something to the effect that the Seafood Paella, the potato cheese empanadas and absolutely everything else looks so yummy. I imagine you and your husband are very good cooks. Can't wait to see what you do with the pasta maker when it finally arrives.

Thanks for posting a link to my blog. You are so deserving of the prize my friend!

Hugs,
Cheryl
