Imagine your family and friends gathered around the warmth of a campfire, whether it be deep in the woods or in the comfort of your own backyard. The light of the fireflies and the sound of the chirping crickets add to the ambiance of the night while everyone is enjoying a fun game of Figure It Out and the taste of delicious Pineapple Cobblers. How about an afternoon with the kids in the kitchen preparing Fake Out Foods like Buttered Corn on the Cob which is actually made of jelly beans?
Yesterday while taping the next four Cooking with Elise at Home segments, my dear friend, Lori Ferguson, encourager and fellow blogger of Encourage Your Spouse, announced that I had 990 likes on my Cooking with Elise page. She giggled as I rejoiced and then commented that my reaction reminded her of the first time I realized someone was following me! I cherish the thought that my recipes, tips, mistakes (or opportunities to learn as I like to call them) and humor have encouraged families to get into the kitchen and make memories together!
My goal this month is to reach 1,000 likes on the Cooking with Elise facebook page and to increase the traffic and comments on the Cooking with Elise website. To celebrate this upcoming milestone, one winner will be randomly chosen on Thursday, June 30, 2011 to win a really neat and fun set of six family-friendly cookbooks. Please help me reach this month’s goal! You can read all about each cookbook below.
