SmartphoneDNA and a KINDLE FIRE HD Giveaway!

There is no doubt that Isabelle Thornton of Le Chateau des Fleurs is talented.  This French-girl-gone-Utah has a wildly popular blog full of interesting DIY posts, photography, giveaways, and great reviews.  Aside from being an awesome blogger, she also creates fun apps for phones.  Previously her "Make Me Skinny" or Bon Bon app has kept many entertained as they edited and adjusted photos on their iPhones, and now I'm excited to announce she's released an entirely new app!  This one is different, and for Android!

Let's face it, sometimes you spend more time with your smart phone than you do with your spouse, friends, coworkers, and family... You sleep with it, eat with it, and admit it-you take it to the bathroom with you!  With Smartphone DNA you are creating a new kind of experience with your Smartphone.

What is Smartphone DNA?  
Smartphone DNA is an app dedicated to Twitter users, and it allows you to collect your Twitter DNA via your Android phone, and then compare it against other twitter users to see how much you match!  This is a great way to locate new Twitter friends that have things in common with you! 

How it works:
  1. Smartphone DNA shows you a list of apps you currently have installed.
  2. You select the apps you want to share as part of your DNA
  3. Smartphone DNA shows you how closely you match the DNA of other users.

Smartphone DNA is 100% secure and controlled by you.

Win a Kindle Fire HD
To celebrate the release of Smartphone DNA, Isabelle is offering one lucky newsletter subscriber  a brand new Kindle Fire HD!  Can you say wow?  This is the reader of all readers-with a 7" full color HD display, exclusive Dolby audio, and ultra-fast WiFi it's top of the line.  Don't miss out on this opportunity to have one for yourself!  Follow the break to enter the giveaway:

Giveaway Winner and a FREEBIE

(You  have 24 hours to get back to me before a new winner is chosen!)

I think the very first cookbook I ever purchased
was an old vegan cooking zine called 
Bark + Grass #2.

It is out of print now, but some awesome person has posted it online!
I thought you guys might get a kick out of these easy and fun recipes!

For example, my first go-to recipe for vegan brownies came from this zine:

Fudge Brownies

  •  Mix 1/3 cup flour with 1 cup water in a saucepan. 
    Cook until thick, then cool completely.
  •  Melt ½ cup margarine. Add 2/3 cup cocoa and stir until smooth. Cool.
  •  Beat 2 cups sucanat, ½ tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla into the cooled flour mixture, then add the cocoa mixture
  •  Mix 1 ½ cups flour and 1 ½ tsp baking powder and add to everything else. Add chopped walnuts or 
    pecans if you want to. 
  • Bake in an oiled 9x13 pan at 350F for 20-25 minutes
