1,000,000 Page Views! (Giveaway!)

It happened yesterday.  I was standing at the copier, killing trees, when I was checking my WordPress App on my phone (so cool by the way!) and saw that I had passed 1,000,000 page views!

Granted it took four years to get there, but the fact that I didn’t hit 100,000 page views until a year and a half in, I am pretty excited to reach this milestone.

I appreciate each and every one of you who take time out of your day to stop by My Bizzy Kitchen and see what I am up to – thank you!

So it’s only fair that I have a giveaway!  When I was deep cleaning a couple weeks ago, I realized I have A LOT of cookbooks.  I weeded through them, scanned recipes I wanted to keep and am giving away three cookbooks:

salisb 012

salisb 013

salisb 014

I will also be giving away four jars of my baja fresh salsaNicole, I stole your picture because it looks better than mine! Open-mouthed smile

To win?  Just tell me what state you live in.  If you twat about the giveaway on twitter, leave a second comment and you can get a second entry.  I don’t have a facebook page, but if I did, put “like” in another comment for a third entry.  I’ll pick a winner on Friday morning. Open-mouthed smile

I woke up a bit late this morning, so you’ll have no nutritional stats.  I know!  You’ll be walking around all day in a daze wondering how many calories I ate yesterday!  Ha! Smile with tongue out

Breakfast was an egg white/spinach breakfast crostini with cantaloupe and watermelon.  It’s the best fruit I’ve bought all year surprisingly!

My co-worker and I went on a Sam’s run at lunch – it was weird not to head to the gym!  When I got back I put lunch together – I took the remainder of the meat from my sandwich on Monday, then remade a new sandwich with fresh bread and fresh sliced lettuce.  More fruit on the side.

And dinner was company Salisbury steak, sans any extra vegetables.  I don’t think I can consider mashed potatoes a vegetable serving!  And try not to be jealous of my sweet ass kitchen counters. Open-mouthed smile

Alright, I can take a shower today!!  Going to get ready for work – its supposed to be near 80 degrees in Chicagoland today – only to be a high in the 40’s for the weekend.  Gotta love Midwest weather!

Make it a great day!  And Happy Birthday to my MIL Bonnie!

  1. Isn’t it weird how as soon as fruit goes out of season, in comes a batch of the best fruit ever. That happens to me too.

    Great giveaway. Cookbooks rock!

  2. Happy 1,000,000 views! (I’ve been watching mine and realized the other day, I am about 200,00 short of 1,000,000) That’s crazy! lol Anyway…congrats.

    I am finding that when the fruit goes out of season here, much of it is imported from South America, and the truth is their fruit is often superior to the fruit grown here for some reason. We used to not even be able to get fruit and veg from there, but now we do…lucky for us!!

    Coming to you from Ohio, which of course, has the same wacky weather as Chicagoland.

  49. Congrats on so many page views!

    Read on Shelley’s blog you still can’t reach my website. Do you get a message or an error. Everyone else can reach it again so it’s weird you can’t.

  50. Did you really just say “twat about the giveaway???” Oh nooo you didn’t! If that’s actually a verb I’m going to die and proceed to overuse it in everyday language. That is so wrong in such a good way. hahahahaha

    OK, onto the important stuff. CONGRATS on 1 million views! That’s huge! My state is Kansas. What a great question to ask, I’m going to rip that off from you for my next giveaway-it’s fun to know how far and wide your readership is.

  51. I don’t live in any state. I live in Europe so I won’t enter your contest. But I do wish you the best and congratz to the future winner.

  52. Congrats!! I live in Minnesota.

  53. Happy to report in from Pennsylvania!

  54. Congrats Biz! I’m in New Jersey (but I wish I still lived in CA!).

  56. I tweeted! But why is there no twitter share button here so the link can be shared easily? Hmmm.

  57. I live in New York! I liked that question 🙂 I can go see where everyone else is from too. The Rachel Ray book looks good.

  58. Wow 1 million page views doubt I’m anywhere close to that lol 🙂 you ROCK!!! I live in Maryland 🙂 and that salsa looks mighty good 🙂

  59. I live in chilly North Dakota! I enjoy reading your blog every day! Congrats!!

  60. Woo Hoo! One million views. I would like to say that I am personally responsible for three or four a day:) (Just kidding… it is a team effort from all your loyal readers) Your food looks so yummy I do pop in a couple of times a day a day. First to read, next to comment, then back again to use a recipe. Your blog is like my own personal cookbook of new and exciting things to try. I love that you make an attempt to “healthy up” a dish and create your great copy cat dishes.
