Blogiversary -- Peko Peko Giveaway!

Post Number 99.

Hard to believe I have been at this little adventure for a full year. Amazing. I don't advertise, no vendors or advertisements, no endorsements and still so many visits from close friends and readers around the world. How on earth did you find me? If I look at the Flag Counter, 69 countries have clicked in to make sure they have been represented. WoW.  New friendships found and treasured memories set to page. You all in your own way encourage my creative efforts, challenge and stretch me, not only in the kitchen, but also in my photography, and prose.

Peko Peko Charity CookbookSo, what better way to celebrate than a giveaway to reward my readers, help in a cause I believe in and award the winner with something I truly love. This cookbook, Peko Peko, a Charity Cookbook for Japan is a family friendly collection and 100% of the proceeds go to the Global Fund for Japan Tsunami Relief. I've read, cooked and delighted in many of the recipes and I am so happy to offer a copy to you, my culinary friends as my thanks to your visits and encouragement.

And even if you don't participate in the giveaway, you can support Japan's recovery by posting a Message of Hope on the American Express Japan Facebook site. They will match each message with a $1 donation to relief efforts.

Here's the scoop: Giveaway will be open until September 15, 2011 and I will pick the winner from a random drawing on September 16, 2011 and announce the winner. Up to 3 chances to win!  Open to International Entries (yes I will pay postage!)  You must provide an email address either in your Google profile or in your comments. No email, no prize.
