Berry Week Giveaway

Berries. They are so amazing I am dedicating an entire week to them. When you bite into a berry  it is not just your taste buds that are affected. Not only are these little gifts from God beautiful, fragrant and delicious, they tend to affect the emotions. My dad once told me that when he bit into a ripe berry it made him feel elegant and wealthy. For a moment he could imagine himself sitting in a mansion surrounded by fine things. Why? Because a berry is a decadent treat that people from all walks of life can enjoy. Couples often find them to be an aphrodisiac. They spark a little romance...what woman wouldn't want to walk in to a room that contained a bottle of champagne and some chocolate covered berries? As an adult, you may look back on your childhood and remember glorious days spent picking berries, or helping your mother make a berry pie. What more could a person ask for in a fruit? This week, I plan to give out my favorite berry recipes. There will be desserts, skin treatments, snacks...who knows. Anything can happen during Berry Week.

In the spirit of Berry Week, I have decided now is the perfect time to conduct my first giveaway! I will be giving away the Breakfast Crate from Huckleberry Haven. This stuff is so beyond delicious! It comes with, Wild Huckleberry coffee, almond flap jack mix, Wild Huckleberry syrup and jam. I don't know if you've every tried huckleberry anything, but...it's an experience we should all have. It is yet another example of the beauty of berries.
Here's how you win:


1) Become a follower of The Whimsical Housewife.
2) Leave a comment on any of the Berry Week post's letting me know what your favorite berry related food is. Don't forget to leave your email! ( Please comment no more than once per day, per post)
3) Please no entries after Friday at 9pm.
4) Make sure to check back by Saturday Aug 14th to see if you won.
5) You will have 48 hrs to contact me with your information or a new winner will be selected.

Let Berry Week begin!

  6. My favorite berry of all time is Strawberry. I love to make stuffed strawberries. Cut the top off so it sits flat, make an X through the pointy bottom but not all the way through. Mix 8 oz cream cheese with a teaspoon of vanilla and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Fill a pasty bag with the cream cheese mix and pipe a little bit through the X you made in the strawberry bottom. You can top with nuts or drizzle chocolate. Very elegant and completely decadent. I am queenesperfect at yahoo.com

  47. Blueberries fresh off the plant are my favorite berry. I have to stay away from sugary pastry. In the movie Tombstone comes a memorable quote, "Doc Holliday: Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! ... Doc Holliday: I'm your huckleberry."
