Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies {Giveaway}

School started today for my oldest.  He's in kindergarten.  It wasn't until this past weekend that it really hit me that with him being in 'regular' school means our lives are gonna change a bit and I need to be as ready as possible and able to roll with the punches.

He's so excited to be going to the 'big kid's school'.

Prince Charming ready for the big K!
As I was getting hit with what it means to have a child in regular school, I immediately started thinking about the Soccer Mom decal I should be putting on the van's back window.  And I further started thinking about all of the last minute possibilities, like...

It's 7pm when your child informs you that they need baked goods to share with the whole class tomorrow.

Sound familiar?  My son isn't even old enough for that to start and I can already see it coming.  Or what about that potluck at work you may have forgot about?  I've dropped that ball a few times.

Last minute baking or cooking of any kind for any size gathering is not fun and quite frankly I would be tempted to say "Oh well" and go empty handed.

Here's where Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies come to the rescue!  Found exclusively at Sam's Club!
With a taste as delicious and authentic as if you baked them at home, Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies are a blend of 3 types of cocoas with real chocolate syrup and milk chocolate chunks to make a delicious fudgy brownie!  They are the perfect solution when your're pressed for time.  Add personal flair to these already baked brownies with your own decorations, frosting, caramel or powdered sugar!  With a straight-out-of-the-oven flavor with the time OR clean-up.
Now having baked brownies from scratch for years and also using Pillsbury's out of the box short cut from time to time, these are sure to be a hit where ever you take them and coming in at a whopping 4 pounds, and you just might have left-overs.  ;)


Ok, so here's the fun part!  The Giveaway!  And if you been around for any of my giveaways, you know I don't ask for much.

Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack : {a Music Review}


I was so excited when I learned that I was "IN" to participate in the Sex and the City 2 soundtrack project from the One2One Network. I couldn't wait to get my copy, tear into it, wear out my CD player and share my giddy praises.
The soundtrack  features a brand-new duet "Love is Your Color" by Grammy and  Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson, along with global superstar, multi-platinum recording artist and three-time Grammy Award nominee Leona Lewis.

A new song by platinum-selling  CeeLo and International superstar Dido also contributes an exclusive new track.

Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe, Tony and Academy Award® winner Liza Minnelli covers Beyonce’s chart-topper “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”

12-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys performs her own extraordinary new version of the Blondie classic “Rapture”.

Featuring the stars of Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, perform the Helen Reddy classic “I Am Woman.” 

First impressions are important and so is reputation.  My first impression was so-so, however, the Sex and the City reputation kept me intrigued and the soundtrack grew on me; of course, I have settled on my favorites.  While I could do without the Sex and the City Men's Choir selections or the Liza Minnelli cover of Beyonce's 'Single Ladies', all in all I love it cause it has some of my fave entertainers in one spot.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, here is one of my fave reviews from a new friend.  A refreshing point of view I bet you won't read anywhere else.  Thank you Mirella.




Go to the soundtrack website to listen to snippets of select songs.

What I love most about Sex and the City is the diversity and fierce loyalty these ladies have to each other.  We should all have friends like this,  I am eternally grateful for mine.
 

If you haven't already, you can join other SATC2 fans on Facebook.

As a member of the One2One Network, I had the opportunity to sign up and receive a complimentary copy of the Sex and the City 2 movie soundtrack to review and post my thoughts on my personal blog.  I was not further compensated for my time or comments on this product.  However, by submitting my review by June 13, 2010, I will be eligible to win one of six gift cards (1x$75, 2x$50 & 3x$25). Winners will be chosen at random.
