Food Tidings & A Giveaway!

I want to wrap up this (overly extended) little series on things related to cooking by chatting for a bit about a really helpful site and by launching Yay Home’s second giveaway.
I participate in a couple of groups consisting of some very helpful and generous ladies. When a person has a baby, an illness, surgery, or just any type of big life event going on, these ladies provide meals for the family in need for about two weeks! What a blessing that is!
However, the coordination/management end of things, as you might imagine, could get a little messy when there are dietary restrictions, food allergies, and specific preferences to consider. This is just one very positive benefit of using Food Tidings, a website that helps with the management aspects of providing meals to families for a set period of time.

When you set up an account, you will receive invitations sent by your group’s coordinator inviting you to sign up for a particular meal schedule. You are able to view the recipient’s address, food restrictions/preferences, time they’d like the meal delivered, dates they will receive the meals, and contact information. I personally love that you can also see what others have volunteered to bring, so you don’t end up bringing the same dish the family had the night before.
I hope you’ll find this site to be a super-useful management tool.
Now on to the giveaway!! Yay!!
You may recall that in my dishtowel post, I shared with you the stay-put dishtowel that is soooo handy to have particularly with a toddler around.

And if you’ve spent any time at all on Pinterest, then you’ve seen these super-cute, personalized, etched-glass casserole dishes.

I thought it was so neat that I made one for myself and one as a gift for a friend. I used the Don Juan font and my Cricut Create.

I had so much fun making these, that I’d like to make a set for one of you! Here’s what you’ll win:
-A stay-put dish towel AND a personalized, etched glass, casserole dish.

Two gifts for one lucky winner! What a great gift this would make for a newlywed or a friend who loves to cook…You could add a cookbook to it or pack of brownie mix to jazz it up even more! Here’s how you can win it (Three ways to enter):
- Become a follower of Yay Home and leave a comment saying you are.
- Mention this giveaway on Facebook, and leave a comment saying you did.
-Mention this giveaway on Twitter, and leave a comment saying you did.

This giveaway will end on Wednesday, September 14th at midnight Eastern time. I will select the winner using and will announce it Thursday morning, September 15, 2011 on Yay Home! Good luck!!
