NEW! FoodieCrush Magazine 2013 Holiday Issue and a $250 VISA Gift Card Giveaway

by heidi on December 11, 2013

Helllllo holidays, and a ho-Ho-HO!

It’s time to don your baking hat and dress yourself up in your most festive holiday apron that you’re surely ashamed of but can’t possibly give away because your mother-in-law will notice when she shows up Christmas morn. Why all the celebrating? Because the Holiday issue of FoodieCrush mag is here. Break out the champs, it’s time to clink clink and get our merry on.

FoodieCrush Holiday 2013

And while you’re at it, make sure you have your wallet in the pocket of that merry apron because with the launch of this issue comes with some serious holiday moola to add to your holiday stash. Like $250 stash you don’t want anyone else to find.

This issue is, almost, all about desserts because let’s face it, as we thoughtfully celebrate the potential of peace on earth, helping others though philanthropy and good will toward man, it all gets our sweet tooth in a lather. And those cravings are in need of some quenching.

In this issue we travel from oven to mailbox, following the philanthropic path of The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap organized by one and two admirable and totally giving BFF food bloggers.

We then criss cross the globe discovering food traditions of some amazingly talented food bloggers, near and far. These recipes are not your everyday sugar cookie.

Next we set off to meet one of my favorite sweet-treat food bloggers, and shocker alert—HE is a candy maker! Oh how I dream of his caramels but this time he’s surprising us with something new.

By this point you might almost be in need of a root canal, but fear not, the sugar coma has subsided. Let’s eat cheese! We meet a food blogger whose intimate gatherings are simple, thoughtful and totally in demand. I wish I was on her list. Did I mention it includes COCKTAILS! Her husband is sort of a sensei.

Plus, a foodie shopping bonanza, carefully curated by my amazing intern Cute Courtney, who I couldn’t have produced this issue without. Please. Don’t ever leave. At least not until next week when your semester is over. Lucky dog.

A big wahoo to Emily of Jelly Toast Blog for this image on the cover. I mean, who doesn’t want to start baking right this minute? And a huge thanks to everyone who agreed to be in the mag.

We want you to enjoy this new issue, all of us who put it together, food bloggers, writers and designers alike.

But the real kudos go to the food bloggers who day in, and day out are creating new and interesting recipes, photography and sharing stories for you to love and drool over and even once in a while make for your family. So get out there and share their stories and their recipes, because they’re doing it for YOU.

Of course if you like what you see in the Holiday issue of FoodieCrush mag, I’d love it if you shared with your friends on Facebook or Twitter, by smoke signal, Google+, pigeon carrier or good old fashioned word of mouth and spread the word about all of the hard working food bloggers creating great recipes for your kitchen.

Check it out!

 

Or hop over to see the new issue here.

Now on to the giveaway. It’s simple. It’s the holidays and hell’s bells, let’s ring them in! To celebrate the new issue of FoodieCrush I’m giving away a $250 VISA gift card to one lucky follower of any of the following entries. visa giveaway foodiecrush I mean, who can’t use some cash in their pocket right now?

Get your daughter that new American Girl doll you know she wants.

Tell your spouse it’s all going to holiday presents and buy him or her that new golf club he or she’s been hinting about.

Or don’t tell ‘em at all and and go to the spa for the full meal deal. I won’t judge.

Just enter in the widget below, enter as many options as you’d like and let’s take a roll of the candy cane dice, shall we?

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I sponsored this giveaway myself, just because I like you and we all deserve a little holiday love. Please support the food bloggers I talk about on this blog, via Pins, comments, tweets or hugs. As always, all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting companies I partner with, which allows me to create more unique content and recipes for you.

I LOVED the article about The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I participated in it twice. I missed out on it this year, yet I will do my best to participate next year. Lindsey and Julie are both awesome women. They help so many and give great advice. They were a great addition to your magazine.
