The SNAP! Conference Ticket winner is Aimee Dillon. She has been notified via email. Thanks Aimee! And thanks to everyone who entered. I’ll see you at SNAP!


Tickets are all sold out for SNAP! the conference. But I have one ticket to giveaway this week.

What is SNAP? SNAP! is a 3 day creative conference at Thanksgiving Point near Salt Lake City, Utah on April 18-20, 2013.

There is something a bit different about this conference (if you attended last year then you know!). It’s filled with people like you, who are busy dreaming, sharing and building things up. We inspire one another and when we connect in ways that comfort and sustain, it is something truly extraordinary.

Take a step away from your busy life and join us for lots of laughter, hugging and replenishment. You’ll walk away with a stronger sense of community, enhanced skills and an even greater sense of self. You DO NOT need to be a blogger to attend.

So how do you win? Just leave a comment in the form below and I’ll pick one winner next week. If you don’t see the form, wait a sec for it to appear.

The only required entry is your name, email and one comment (on the widget). There are a few extra entries to increase your chances of winning. The giveaway will end Sunday, February 10th and the winner will be emailed!

Last week I was invited to tour a local Harmon’s grocery store here in Utah. My mom always shopped at Harmon’s when I was a kid. The owners, Bob and Randy Harmon (brothers), showed us around their brand new store in downtown Salt Lake City. It is beautiful and amazing and everything you never dreamed a grocery store could be. There are two levels. The upper level has lounge seating and free wifi. There is a post office. The have a gelato stand where they make their own gelato from methods they learned and machines they bought in Italy. On the lower level they have a huge selection of every kind of food. Cheeses, fresh daily baked bread, and yummy lunch buffets. They put thoughtful detail into everything they do. I was impressed. I know they’ve come a long way since my mom and I went there together and I’m glad to experience the change first hand. See the giveaway details at the end of the post.

Now on to the post: Mint Oreo Cookies

These delightful little cookies bring out the kid in everyone. With their sweet cookie taste and a hint of holiday peppermint, it’s a treat everyone will enjoy.

You will need: peppermint candies, white chocolate, Oreo type cookies, parchment paper, mini gable boxes

Unwrap and crush the peppermint candies in a food processor. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl by microwaving it for 30 seconds at a time. Stir the chocolate after every 30 seconds so that it doesn’t burn.

Gather your kids together to help you finish the cookies. Dip the cookies in white chocolate and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Sprinkle the crushed peppermint on top. Repeat until you have dipped all of your Oreos. Don’t move the cookies until the white chocolate has cooled and hardened.

Line a mini gable box with some parchment paper and stack 4 oreo cookie treats into a box. A sweet surprise in a sweet little package for your loved ones!
