Giveaway~ A Few of my Favorite Things!

August 2nd, 2011 - Fitness News, Food News


I’ve found that it’s the little thing that have really helped me enjoy and continue on my journey to healthy living! As a way of saying THANK YOU to all of the amazing people that support Dashing Dish, I would like to share a few of these ‘little pleasures’ that have made living a healthy lifestyle all the more enjoyable!

Three Winners Will Receive:

  • Nu Naturals Stevia- A 50ct  box of NuStevia Packets and a bottle of NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia Liquid. I love this brand of stevia, because after trying many brands out there, it’s the only one that I can say doesn’t have a funny aftertaste, and it tastes just like sugar!
  • Power Body ICE with Jody Trierweiler DVD- An intermediate to advanced workout, that really get’s you working! And no equipment is needed, so you now you never have an excuse not to workout! Workout DVD’s have been a lifesaver for me when I’m running short on time, but need to fit a workout in my day! This one is particularly amazing, and was created by one amazing lady who loves the Lord!

To enter this giveaway you could do one of two things:

  • Find your favorite Dashing Dish recipe, and put a link back to it on your Facebook page!
  • If you have a website, mention, and put a link back to your favorite Dashing Dish recipe on your site!

Then leave a comment here saying that you did!

Winners will be announced on August 9, 2001~ which is one week from today! Good Luck and Thank You again for all your love and support!!!

Good morning Katie! I’ve been a big fan of your blog for a few months now. I’m in love with making yummy food for half the guilt ;) The other day I tried your “Red, White & Blue” cheesecake. Beyond delicious! While my version didn’t turn out anywhere as pretty as yours, I will be blogging about it on Thursday! Please feel free to stop by, check it out and let me know what you think!

P.S. Sugar-free strawberry jam and greek yogurt have rocked my protein shake’s world :)

Hey Katie! I shared your wonderful “I cant believe it’s not a milkshake” on my facebook wall.

I have been drinking these almost every day and they are amazing! I just wanted to say how much I love your blog and love that you are so strong in your faith. These last couple of weeks have been very stressful and hard, but every time I hear your great posts about God and your faith, it gives me the best feeling. I hope that I can become more like you, strong in faith, fitness and life. I am trying to become healthier and loose some weight and it has always been hard since I LOVE TO COOK, but after your blog, I see that it is possible! I am also starting my second semester of clinicals in nursing school and can’t wait to see what is in store for me this semester! You and your husband are such a great example of what a Christian marriage should be like and I hope that mine will be the same!

Thanks so much!
Katie Beth

Katie, I love ALL of the sweets you’ve made. I started out with the triple chocolate chunk muffins (wonderful) and didn’t stop. The lemondrop cupcakes are probably one of my favorites to make in the summer and your shakes, well… they help satisfy my sweet tooth. You’ve been such an inspiration to me. Thank you so much!

I blogged about this give-a-way!

God bless!

Hello Katie! I am going into my senior year of college and decided I wanted to spend this

summer learning how to cook. My sister showed me your blog and it has turned me into a

Yum! Thank you for your wonderful recipes :)

I love your recipe for Apple Sausage Stuffing! My friends and I do a potluck every Thanksgiving once everyone is back home and I am always in charge of stuffing. I had to make a double batch last year and it still wasn’t enough. So I’m looking for a second kind of stuffing (and one much more healthy than the normal one I make) to include this Thanksgiving. I cannot wait to try it out!

Hi Katie,
Your website is a true gem – thank you for all the trouble and effort you put into it and then sharing it with the rest of us. You do have a “favourite recipe” of mine. While researching recipes for a pizza page I was writing I found your Cauliflower Pizza Bites ( and I was fascinated by the idea of using cauliflower to make “pizza crust.” So I tried it and Wow! It’s now vying for top place in my personal “proper food made fun” section with the best carrot cake recipe ever. Who’da thought “cabbage with a college education” could taste so good? I will always remember you with a smile for this one and for getting my son to eat cauliflower – and ask for more.
