Easy As Pie Hop. No, Really.


UPDATE! Congratulations to Donna C. for being randomly selected (Random.org) to win the $20 Amazon gift certificate.

Thanks to all who participated! Sign up for my email list to make sure you don't miss future contests and giveaways!

***

Easy as pie. Hmmm....have you ever tried to make one? Is it TMI (Too Much Information) to admit that pie dough has made me cry?

'cause it has.

And when my pies are done, they don't look all fancy pants like this: 

Mine look more like this. And that's on a good day.


So when I say something is easy, I know what I'm talking about. And winning a $20 Amazon card sponsored by Yours Truly and I Am A Reader Not A Writer is easy...because there are no strings attached.

We just need your email in the comment section (only to contact you with) and that's it. If you win, maybe you can buy a book from Amazon and how to make the perfect pie.

 Or not. Because it won't be as easy as this.


Happy hopping...
