I love February! All that love is in the air fun and chocolate - it does my heart good. I always try to squeeze in some extra entertaining and a good romantic chick flick this month to celebrate. So I thought it would be fun to get some movie suggestions. Have you got a favorite romantic movie, one you think would be perfect for Valentine's Day? Share it here. We'll pick a winner and send you a little Valentine Goody package of some chocolate and a signed Sheila book. You have until Feb 13th to post. We'll announce our winner on Valentine's Day.
Who won this month's contest. Lori we'll be getting those books out to you soon. Thanks for all of you who shared. I'm sure it was fun and inspirational for all of us to read those posts. Check back next month. I'm sure we'll come up with something fun for February.
I've found a fun cookbook to offer our lucky winner in this month's contest. (Remember, I told you I'd let you know!) Just ordered a copy of THE EVERYTHING HEALTHY COOKING FOR PARTIES: Delicious, guilt-free foods all your guests will love. I love to eat, I love to cook, and I love to throw parties. Why am I giving away this book? Anyway, there you have it. Keep those New Year's resolutions coming!
So, have you made a New Years resolution? Share it with us. We'll randomly pick a winner and send one of you a copy of SMALL CHANGE and a healthy cooking cookbook (TBA - I haven't decided on one just yet). Contest ends January 19th. We'll announce a winner on the 20th. Happy New Year!
We're going to have a cat-themed contest for my new release, THE NINE LIVES OF CHRISTMAS. Tell us, in twenty-five words or less, about the coolest cat you ever owned.

If you have the coolest cat of all we'll send you a Sheila holiday reading package, consisting of my three Christmas novels, ON STRIKE FOR CHRISTMAS, THE SNOW GLOBE, and THE NINE LIVES OF CHRISTMAS. Contest ends November 30th and we'll announce our winner on December 1st. Can hardly wait to hear about your awesome kitties!
Hey there, fellow readers and foodies, I'm putting together a collection of chocolate candy recipes for next year's novel. Have you got a great original family recipe? Maybe you've concocted something yummy that's been the hit of family gatherings. Or maybe you're up for the challenge of coming up with something right now! Whatever. Share it here and you might just make it into my novel. (You will of course, get credit, just like past contributors have). There is a deadline (because, hey, I've got a deadline). Post your recipe by September 15th so we have time to test it here in the kitchen of Sheila Crockpot. Who knows, you might just find yourself famous!
BTW, this one is open to all you non- U.S. residents as well since the "prize" will be getting into the book. (Providing you make the cut with my editor.) So, ready, set, cook!
I can't remember when we've had such a hard time picking a contest winner. You all submitted such unique and fun recipes. Wish I had a prize for each of you. Truly. But there is only one. And this time it goes to ... drum roll please. Debra. Congrats Debra on your easy unique dessert recipe. I think we'll all enjoy trying that. In fact, I know I'm going to enjoy trying all the recipes that were submitted. Thanks one and all. And stay tuned. We'll have a new contest s
Summer is here and it's time to bring out the summer recipes. So I thought it would be fun to have a little summer contest. Share your easy, easy summer recipe incorporating some of the summer bounty we love. We'll pick a winner on July 14th (a lucky day for Sheila - it's her anniversary) Winner will receive this fun little summery bucket of trinkets. Okay, that's all there is to it, gang. Ready, set, create!
M&M's, a fun little Senaria tool to give you pretty feet, and a necklace and matching earrings. Gotta tell you, it's going to be hard staying out of those M & M's. They're my fav!
As always, great entries, great comments. And, once more we see the wisdom of our moms. (And the importance of wearing clean underwear!) So it was hard to pick a winner. But we did and it's Diana. Congrats Diana and happy Mother's Day.
In honor of Mother's Day, we're going have a little fun. Share with us your favorite "mommyism", that profound bit of truth (or fabrication) your mother told you when you were growing up. (Maybe you're even saying it to your kids!) We'll pick a winner and someone will get this fun cupcake-shaped bath bomb that Sheila picked up when she was enjoying her girls weekend in Portland last month.Contest will run May 1st through the 7th and we'll announce our winner on Mother's Day.
Looking forward to reading those pearls of mommy wisdom!
