Every action has a reaction and it's those little actions that count the most like opening the door for a stranger and receiving a smile of gratitude in return. Sometimes the reactions are predictable, such as what results from performing a simple act of kindness. Other times, the reaction is unexpected like getting followed for thirty miles by an "over-friendly" trucker just because you waved at him for allowing you to pass him and he took it as a sign you wanted to play around.
Yep. It happens. That's when you snap a photo of his license plate in case no one ever sees you alive again.
Just call me paranoid.
Which is why I have enjoyed baking with Red Star yeast products for over ten years, because I know the results will always be the same. About a month ago, I was given a few Red Star yeast products to try at home. Needless to say, I didn't have to try the Red Star yeast since it's the only yeast I have ever been happy with. I buy Red Star yeast in bulk. There was no need to convince me--I had reached that conclusion years ago.
Like any good company, Red Star has decided to give back to their customers for purchasing Red Star products. It's called Carol's Club and basically what that means is when you purchase Red Star products, each red star saved (which is found on Red Star products) will earn you points towards FREE products in Carol's Club (pdf file)! This is a free program (plus shipping and handling) just for buying Red Star products! I was given a sampling of these products free of charge to try out myself: loaf pans, Danish dough whisks, oven thermometers, adjustable measuring spoons, dough scrapers, an apron, silicone spatulas and a purse-load of yeast pouches and recipes.
However, since I don't need any more loaf pans, yeast, oven thermometers, and other goodies (okay, so I am keeping the apron they sent me), then I thought I'd give them away here on my blog just in time for the holidays!
Here's the Important Stuff:
There will be FIVE (5) recipients of Red Star products which will consist of TWO (2) GRAND PRIZE winners and THREE (3) Regular Prize winners. The Grand Prize winners will receive EACH: one loaf pan, one silicone spatula, one Danish dough whisk, one oven thermometer, one dough scraper, one adjustable spoon, two booklets of recipes and six pouches of yeast (3 regular rise and 3 quick rise). The Regular Prize winners will receive EACH: six pouches of yeast (3 regular rise and 3 quick rise) and two booklets of recipes. The booklets of recipes also have a coupon.
Here's How to Enter:
1.) Leave a comment on THIS POST telling me what your favorite holiday baked food is such as Glazed Pecan Rolls, Homemade Bread, Sweet Dinner Rolls, or even Mom's Apple Pie AND whether or not you bake with yeast. The holiday baked food item need not be yeast based. I want everyone to have an equal chance of winning these great products.
That's It! No extra entries this time!
