Grasshopper Fudge Cake and My First GIVEAWAY!!!!!

I found a recipe that I can't wait to try! I'm going to make it this weekend when my sister comes to visit! Grasshopper Fudge Cake, how good does that sound? It's a green, chocolate, mint cake, perfect for St. Patrick's Day! I know what you're all thinking "isn't she on a diet?" well, not really, I'm watching what I eat and eating healthier, but that doesn't mean I can't have cake (or anything else I want). I'm not a big cake eater anyway so I'll have no problems just eating one piece. I have plans for the leftovers, so that they are not sitting around the house anyway. After I make it I will post pictures and the recipe so you all can try it too! I picked up all of the ingredients (except the Andes mints for the top) today, and made sure my pan set wasn't dirty, so I'm ready to go! YUM I can hardly wait to try it, well I hope it's as good as I'm anticipating, but seriously how can you go wrong with chocolate and mint?

Now on to part two of my post! I'm going to be doing my first giveaway! The prize is a $15 gift card code for CSN STORES. They have over 200 stores, literally something for EVERYONE. Contest ends Friday, March 11, 2011 and I will randomly pick and post the winner Saturday, March 12!

1. Become a follower of my blog.
2. Leave a comment on THIS post, letting me know you are a follower and what you'd like to do with the gift card! (If you already are a follower, just enter with a comment.)

I can't wait to hear what all of you would do with the gift card!

  4. My mouth is watering over your cake! I love mint chocolate. Recipe?

    I became a follower, but I haven't heard of CSN stores (ugh!) so I'm not sure what I'd get with the certificate. But I'd be glad to figure it out. ;-)

    I would put it toward a wall decal with a tree & cute forest animals that I want to get for my daughters' playrooM! :)
