I'm giving away one of my tooooo cute reversible holiday aprons to my favorite recipe submitted by YOU, my readers. Good luck, may the Queen/King of Thanksgiving win!

2 - In honor of my new casserole website that I announced last month, this months 5 recipes are all casseroles. I hope you enjoy them, and if you haven't been to the new website, I'd be honored if you went to visit...all-casseroles.com It's very much new, and in the early stages of construction, so I haven't rolled out the red carpet for it yet, but I'd love for you to have the first opportunity to take a peek. Watch it grow!!!

3- More contests and giveaways will be coming to quick-and-easy-dinner.com in the upcoming months. You'll want to check in regularly as I plan to offer a really great prize (hint, hint enameled cast iron cookware set!) as well as my aprons, Cathy's Cookbooks, and who knows what else will be in the mix. The more my website grows, the more I will GIVE AWAY!! So be sure to tell your friends and family about me, and feel free to add my link to your myspace/facebook pages. If you have a blog, I'd be honored if you added me there as well. Spread the word, my friends, and I will give back to you better and better prizes!!
