It's GIVEAWAY time

So it has been a little like Christmas at my house.  I have won a couple of giveaways on blogs and the goods came in.  I just wanted to share them because they were such fantastic items:

2 cookbooks and a spatula from Jacqueline at The Dusty Baker (i.e. the gluten free goddess)

A gorgeous hand carved cutting board from Camille at My Fudo (this quickly has become my favorite)

Well I just wanted to give a quick shout out to those two ladies and their awesome giveaways. 

Feeling good about getting these things has made me decide that today should start a giveaway as well from My Naturally Frugal Family.

And what am I giving away you ask?

How would you like 32 oz of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil?

I have had the pleasure of reviewing Tropical Traditions coconut oil and I have to say I love the way it performs.

I have been doing a lot of baking since Thanksgiving and for my baked goods (cookies, cakes, and pies) I have been substituting coconut oil for vegetable.

Most recently I made my vegan banana bread in muffin form and used the coconut oil.

To me it seems that the muffins were a bit moister.

Now in this post here I put up one of my all time favorite snacks which is a toasted peanut and coconut butter sandwich.  Do you know that Tropical Traditions makes that product? 

So if you didn't want to whip it up you can get theirs ready made.

I must say the large size canister really does last a long time and the price is right.

Tropical Traditions does a great job of offering deals and coupons on their goods.

But don't just take it from me check it out for yourself.

Special Price! - 2 pints - Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil 16 oz. - Buy 1 get 1 FREE!

Disclaimer: Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.
