Vote in the #TastefullyCrafted Contest to Win a Trip to the Great American Beer Festival!

This post brought to you by Green Mountain Gringo all-natural chips and salsa. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Sunshine and Sippy Cups.

What does tastefully crafted mean to you? Is it a delicious family recipe passed down for years? Brewing your own beers or canning your own homegrown produce? Or maybe a favorite store-bought product… something that’s all natural, gluten-free, non-GMO, and fits into a vegetarian diet too? Those all sound #tastefullycrafted to me!


Right now Green Mountain Gringo, an all-natural craft salsa made right here in the US, in Winston-Salem, NC, is running a contest to celebrate what tastefully crafted means to you – since that’s the perfect description of their own products! By submitting a photo to their Facebook wall or on Instagram, using the #tastefullycrafted hashtag, you’ll get entered to win a trip for two to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. How cool is that, right?

Cooking is Like Love – Enter to Win a KitchenAid Mixer! – #Giveaway

“Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” –  Harriet Van Horne…. If you’ve followed this site for even a short period of time, you’ve probably picked up on my cooking style. While I feel super passionate about creating really delicious, creative, healthy meals that my family will love – followed by super fun desserts and treats – I have WAY more enthusiasm in the kitchen than I do skill, lol. But, that doesn’t stop me from trying. And honestly – When I find an amazing Pinterest dessert idea to try, and it fails in an epic way – that’s part of the fun, right?

Rod Stewart’s Christmas CD “Merry Christmas, Baby” – #Giveaway

If there was such a thing as a Christmas music addiction, I would be the ring leader! I love Christmas music and now that Halloween is over, it’s time to fire up the playlist. Yep, we have one of those stations that plays Christmas music 24/7 starting the day after Thanksgiving – until then, I have my Pandora radio playlists. But as soon as that station flips to holiday themes, we listen to it all the time! Seriously – I.Love.Christmas. A lot.
