Xagave Nectar + Cookbook Give-Away

I'm one day behind again - and that couldn't be helped. The temperature was 103 here yesterday and I was feeling every bit of it. As it happens, my beloved computer is in the only un-airconditioned room of my home ... so now you see why my posting has been so erratic of late. I simply can't take the heat.

Its not much better today, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet ... literally, sweet, because the good folks at Xagave Nectar have generously offered to sponsor a give-away this week!

The makers of Xagave reached out to me after my post on the blackberry bundt cake and asked if I'd like to run a give-away and, naturally, I said yes.

One lucky reader will have the chance to win a package containing one 25 ounce bottle of Xagave Premium Agave Nectar and a copy of their marvelous cookbook: "Delicious Meets Nutritious." If you're new to cooking and baking with agave nectar, this is the book for you! Its chock full of recipes for every meal of the day, nutritional information, and a handy conversion chart for replacing the sugar in any recipe with agave nectar.

To get a better idea of this marvelous cookbook's range, just take a look at the free recipes offered on Xagave's site ... Brie Stuffed Chicken, Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies, luscious Spinach and Red Pepper Dip - if those don't tempt you, I don't know what will?!

Rules of Entry are as follows:

1. To enter simply browse the free recipes section at Xagave Nectar, then come back and leave a comment here telling me which recipe you'd like to try. You must complete this task in order to be eligible for the prize.

2. To gain a second entry, follow me and leave me a comment letting me know that you do. If you are already a follower, leave a comment letting me know.

3. To gain a third entry, Tweet about this give-away - then come back and let me know you've Tweeted.

One winner will be chosen by random number generator and the contest will close at midnight on Tuesday, July 13th. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, July 14th.

The contest is open to U.S. residents only and you must be willing to email me your name and address so that Xagave may send your prize directly.

Good luck and stay cool!

Wilma said...

I don't know if canine family are disqualified, but I'm gonna tell you what I think anyway, cuz that's just how I roll.
Mom is drooling over most every recipe. I liked the chicken mole, but I know I can't have it cuz of the cocoa. But then I saw the bar-b-que chicken pizza and I was all over it. Everyone knows how I feel about pizza! Mom said she is going to try the carrot pineapple cake.

And Auntie, you know I'd follow you anywhere!

103? I'd die.

Interesting give away. Never tried agave nectar, although I've been meaning to. I won't enter since I live north of the border, but wish other contenders luck!

pixelgal said...

Hard to choose just one...but then that's the story of my life! I pick the chocolate chip cookies with cherries. I don't know if following you means reading your blog but if that's the case, then I do. After all, I'm an essential part of Divaness, eh??? But I definitely don't tweet or facebook.
Am a convert to agave nectar thanks to you! XXXXOOOO

Hi Diva,
I've been folowing you since before I started my own blog.I thought at sometime I had joined the Google Follower, guess I thought wrong. Sorry about that. I too have been using agavae nectar, though I've never seen this brand where I am. I am going to have to try the Chipotle Orange Chicken, STAT. That one sounds delectable. Going to go tweet about it right now.

It has been ridiculously hot here as well. I have always wanted to try Agave but it is unavailable where I live. The Lemon-Blueberry Ricotta pancakes sound amazing!

Fresh Local and Best said...

I would create the peanut chikki because it looks like a great dessert.

I hope you are able to stay cool over the next few weeks. I don't do well in hot weather either.

Laura said...

I have NOT tried agave, I know freak of the western world right? I don't have a microwave either :)

I'd say carrot pineapple cake!

Laura said...

following you :)
