Happy Anniversary to Taracooks.com! And a GIVEAWAY!

Posted by on Monday, November 28th, 2011

WOW I can hardly believe TaraCooks.com has an upcoming anniversary to celebrate!  3 years ago this week, my hubby launched this cooking site.  Since then we’ve worked up nearly 300 posts, had a little write up in the local newspaper, and appeared as a guest cook on Better Nashville a few times when they needed a “filler.”  I have also enjoyed holding some canning classes in our kitchen as well as teaching a cooking class to elementary students for a couple of years.  The blog has been a lot of work, but even more fun.  Finally it means SO much to me to hear your positive comments about one of our recipes you’ve cooked up for your own family.  After all, one of the main reasons I wanted to start this blog was to encourage more families to cook together as a way to reconnect.

I hope to keep posting tasty Southern reicpes and to increase my following.  When the time is right, my heart’s desire is to have my favorite recipes published in a real cookbook.  Meanwhile, we want to say THANK YOU to all those who have supported us and cheered us on, and tried our recipes by rewarding a lucky follower with a $50 AMAZON GIFT CARD!


Here’s how to enter the contest.  If you have not yet LIKED the Taracooks.com Facebook page, hit the link to Facebook in the left side bar on this page.  The link should take you directly to Taracooks.com on Facebook.  Next help us spread the word about our giveaway by referring your friends to our Facebook page. And here’s the most important part of the contest.  Be sure to have your friends post a comment on the Taracooks.com Facebook wall indicating that YOU referred them!  The person who refers the most Facebook followers between now and Sunday night December 4th at midnight (CST) will be declared the Winner!  Good Luck!

    Hey!! I have tried (several different times over the past few months) to find your page on facebook to like it…when I click the link on your website it takes me to my newsfeed. When I go to Facebook and try to search it, it takes me directly to your taracooks.com website…Do you know why I might be having trouble following you?

    Hi Stacy. I am sorry you are having trouble trying to “like” our facebook page. I need to pass this info along to Richard since he handles all the technical questions. However since we are facebook friends, can you go to my personal facebook page and look for my taracooks.com facebook page in the left sidebar or under INFO and try liking it from there? You would think as many friends as we have in common which have like my page, that Taracooks.com facebook page would sometimes appear in the right side bar as a suggested page. Let me get Richard to work on this too. Thanks Stacy!
