Logo Contest!

Pin It

I'm having a contest! I'd like a Kasia's Kitchen logo that I can use for things. I'm good at making things on my phone with amazing apps, but not gifted in logo creating/branding. You  know what else I'm good at? Making cookies and cupcakes! So I decided, why not have a contest for people who are good at doodling/designing/branding to submit logos and I can reward the winner with what I'm good at, dessert! Logos can be submitted to me via email (kasialindsay@gmail.com) up until March 17th (I posted the original post on February 17th, so that's one full month!). If I have a lot that I can't decided between, I'll post all the submissions for readers, friends, and family to vote on!

Again, not a designer and don't know the lingo, but these are the things I'd like for a logo: Something I can use as a Facebook Page profile picture. Something I can upload to a website to order a custom stamp to stamp my food boxes. Something high resolution that I can send to people who request to use my recipes for something. As far as text it only needs to say Kasia's Kitchen and my website link (kasiaskitchen.com). I'd like for it to have the look and feel of a hand sketched doodle. I'd like for it to incorporate cute hand written looking font, a rolling pin, and a cupcake. It can also include (but not as necessary) a whisk, an arrow, and apron, and/or an owl.

The winner will get TWO DOZEN custom sugar cookies or cupcakes. For cookies they'd get to decide the shape and colors. For cupcakes they'd get to decide the flavor. Note: If not in Slidell or Mississippi, cookies will probably be the best option because they ship better! For a list of flavors and shapes see this post. You can redeem the "win" at any time! Hello party that you are hosting soon! Or, party you haven't planned yet. OR party for just you and a whole lot of Netflix.

If you have any questions for me or thoughts that you want to run  by me before creating your design, email me!

Meal Planning 101: Week 47

Pin It

I confess, as you can see, that I'm not giving you a full week of meal planning this week. I'm going to South Carolina for the wedding of one of my best friend's twin. On Thursday morning I will depart at 5:30 ish am. Eek! So, even though my meal plan is weak, at best, I still wanted to share my few little meals with you. Mainly to stay in the rhythm of posting, but also, my meal planning template is so cute I just want to keep using it!

Short and sweet. But consistency means I'll start posting recipes again soon right?? High hopes.

Meal Planning 101: Week 46

Pin It

IT'S STILL MONDAY! Barely, but hey, it counts way more than Thursday. Meal Plan Monday actually posted on a Monday! Maybe I'm actually getting back into the rhythm of this whole blogging thing again. I made a new meal plan template that I like way better than the last! I liked it so much I'm sharing the blank one for you to hijack if you'd like!

All meal planning is awesome, but this week was beyond awesome. Kroger had stellar coupons, amazing sales, and crazy manager special mark downs. This resulted in me stocking up on things like 49 cent organic french fries, 59 cent organic broccoli, and $1.99 packages of ground turkey! WHAT?! I spent $80-ish on 2 weeks (plus some stocking up) worth of groceries. And I saved around $30 with coupons and sales, not including manager special! 

 And now, the plan! Isn't it so much better than that other template I made?? It's so pretty. I'm kind of obsessed.

What are you eating this week? What meal are you most excited about cooking? I'm most excited about this cheeseburger sliders recipe I saw that gave me an idea for turkey burger sliders! Also pretty excited about cooking chicken wings for the first time.

Meal Planning 101: Week 45

Almost only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, AND blogging right? So surely Thursday can count as almost Monday? I had a plan. I've stuck to it. I just forgot to share it. I could give you a list of reasons, but instead, I'm just going to give you the plan and possibly promise that next weeks Meal Plan Monday will occur on the real Monday and not the almost Monday called Thursday.
