Pin it to Win it $500 giveaway!!

Today marks the 3 year anniversary of the Mix and Match Mama brand!!

Three years ago today, I published my very first recipe and began cultivating Mix and Match Mama. I had no idea what would happen…I really kind of assumed just a handful of friends and my parents would read the blog.  Now, three years later, Mix and Mama has exceeded my wildest dreams.  Hello…
…I get to be a part of the Paula Deen Network!
I really just wanted to set out and create simple and yummy recipes busy women could make on hectic weeknights.  I never wanted  my recipes to be fancy or complicated…I wanted them to be simple, easy, yummy and perfect for busy families.
Without all of YOU, none of my dreams could have come true.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blogs and making my recipes.  There is no greater compliment to me than to hear someone say they made one of my recipes for their family.  Thank you so much.  My heart is so full of love for you.
I want to celebrate this anniversary with a gift to YOU!  
Today is my Pin in to Win it giveaway!  
I picked my favorite food retailer, Williams-Sonoma and purchased a $500 gift card to giveaway to one lucky reader.  
Here’s how this giveaway works, in order to be entered, you have to follow me on Pinterst (food lovers heaven) and pin 10 images of either my Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas recipes (all things coming up!) to enter.  You can enter as many times as you want (so if you pin 20 images, you’re entered twice, 30 images, three times, etc).  You have to pin it to win it!
I already have a pinterest button that pops up on each food image.  Just click the image and go!
Thank you again so much for sharing your dinner table with me.  I am forever thankful and grateful.  So many blessings are happening with Mix and Match Mama and I thank each of you for being a part of it.
Contest ends Monday at midnight and the winner will be announced Monday morning!  The winner’s Pinterest boards will be verified upon winning.  Enter Rafflecopter below to win!  Good luck!

    Can we mix and match the seasons or do we need to pick ten within a certain category?

  • Hilary Jose August 28, 2014 at 11:50 am

    Happy Anniversary! Pinterest is how I stumbled upon your blog. And am I glad I did. I felt like I was making the same recipes over and over and now I have recipes galore to try! You've already expanded our family menu. Your spinach chicken enchiladas, pesto tacos, BBQ joes, meatball sliders are part of our regular rotation. Thank you! I've already been pinning your recipes almost daily, and joined in the "Pin it to Win it." Oh, how badly I would love myself a Williams & Sonoma KitchenAid Stand Mixer as opposed to my hand held version….!

  • Lauren August 28, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Congrats on 3 years!! I just love reading your blog every day! šŸ™‚ can the pins be on different boards or do they have to be on one board?

  • Katie Dang August 28, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    I just pinned your pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls yesterday and plan on making them for our Saturday morning breakfast! I'll let you know how they turn out. Your blog has inspired me to start my very own blog (only 1 post so far!) about daily life. I'm even learning HTML coding…scary! Keep up your hard work, Shay!
