Super Bowl kick-off and another kind of kick-off!

Congratulations Tessa Crandall! Please send me your address: Kelly(insert@) and I’ll get your box in the mail!

This giveaway is now closed.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone! If you’ve emailed me I’m sorry I haven’t been able to get back to you yet. We’ve had a flu go around our house this week. Boo. We’re on the mend now, but I’m days behind in checking my email, so it’s going to take me some time to catch up.
What are you having for the Super Bowl? I put some chili in the crock pot first thing this morning (the black bean chili from my first cookbook), and I’m going to make mini spinach pies to snack on, using my mini muffin tray. I’m going to use this pie crust. I’ll roll the dough into little balls, flatten it in my hands, and press into my mini muffin tray. Then I’m going to add a variation of this spinach filling, minus the artichoke and with extra spinach. If they turn out as cute and delish as I think they’re going to I’ll post them or at least put a photo on Spunky Facebook later :-)

For dessert I’m going to serve Cupcake Kabobs with Sunbutter Frosting, pictured above. I love the idea of bite size food for the game. So the chili will require a bowl, but the mini spinach pies and cupcake kabobs will be bite size. Bring out the party trays! :-)

And since kick-off is tonight, I’m going to kick-off another treat, just for you.

A while ago I posted this yum-o hemp protein shake. Since then, the company sent me a gift box, which I am going to give away to one of you! Here’s what your box includes:

Six $1 off coupons.

Six protein powder samples.
One bag of hemp seeds.

And one big Organic Hemp Pro Fiber!

To enter to win all this great stuff, leave me a comment with your first and last name so I know it’s really you when I get your email (if you win), and not someone pretending to be you so they win!
This giveaway will close this Friday, February 11th at midnight my time.
I’m also really excited to tell you I have more great giveaways and reviews coming up, so stay tuned!
♥, Kelly

    Fabulous giveaway Kelly. Hi, this is Sandy Gillett. Comgratulations on the baby on the way! I’m using your cookbook like a textbook. Your recipes are definitely working for me! I love your blog. God Bless your sweet family.

  2. says

    So glad the Spunky Coconut crew is on the mend! Sounds like a great menu, Kelly. I remember those cupcake kabobs! They’re about as impressive as you get. Fun for Super Bowl and a nice prelude to Valentine’s Day I’d say. :-) Look forward to the spinach pie recipe, too.

    Great giveaway … not entering as I’m well supplied with some of those very same hemp products, but good luck to all and a big boo on folks trying to snag others’ giveaway prizes.

    Enjoy! xo,

    Your website is awesome and being somewhat new to gluten-free, it’s been a blessing. We’d love to try the hemp protein!

    Those cupcake kabobs look adorable — I sent a link to my cupcake-making-obsessed friend.

    And the hemp protein giveaway sounds great. I tried some hemp powder I didn’t care for, so it’d be great to check out other options.

  5. says

    AWESOME giveaway! I have been wanting to try hemp protein for so long, just haven’t taken the time to research what brands are best. I would LOVE to get my hands on all these great products!

    Im off to make Kale chips and chop veggies for the game!

    I am so excited to have an endorsment for a non dairy protein powder. Seems after a January free from Dairy, I am truly sensitive to it!

    Thanks for all you do.

    Another great giveaway, Kelly! I love hemp seeds atop smoothies. And, I’m a nursing mom, so I can use all the super-nutrients I can get! :)

    I’ve been meaning to congratulate you on your pregnancy! Awesome news!

    Cheers, Kimberly Schultz

    My sister recently found out she’s allergic to dairy, eggs, beans, wheat, and spelt, and so sought a vegan protein powder. The one she found is hemp, and loves it! Must try it for myself 😉

  10. says

    I’m new to eating gluten free (and going dairy free and sugar free too), and am actually doing a raw detox at the moment. While I’ve never tried hemp, I’d sure love to win this so I can!!! My name is Kim Owens (from NH).

  11. says

    I use your website all the time! I just used your waffle recipe yesterday! They are a new staple around here. Thank you for all the hard work you put into your recipes. I’ve been wanting to try the hemp protein since you mention it earlier.

    Kelly, I love your blog and have your first book and just adore it! The strawberries look so yummy! I’m a Green Bay fan even though I’m not from Wisconsin and even though my blog is nutritionally focused, I am a fan of making the famous Beer Cheese Soup that so many Wisconsin natives love that I’ll post on the blog tonite. The recipe is definitely a hit with then men in my family!
    I just started using Mannitoba Hemp and love it! It’s a great source of protein and nutrients. Thanks for your hard work! You’re an inspiration and I would love to win the protein powder!!

    I’ve been looking for these protein shakes everywhere and can’t find them. would love to try it out! Erin McLaughlin

  14. says

    I would have commented anyway after seeing those dessert kabobs on my reader. That has got to be one of the most original things I’ve ever seen plus I’m hungry. I want one! Oh and I’m in love with hemp protein as well, it’s always on my list when I order from the net (no stores nearby). Great giveaway. Laurel VanBlarcum

  15. says

    Hey Kelly–glad to hear everyone is on the mend! And what a great giveaway. I’m hoping it’s open to Canadians–I love Manitoba Harvest stuff! If not, no worries (I can get it here, but sure would love to win some!) Ricki (Heller)! :)

  16. says

    Hello Kelly~

    Love everything about you…and your blog. You’re a huge inspiration to me. I’m tickled to hear about your pregnancy. Congratulations. When I read your post this morning I about fell off my chair…LOVE everything about HEMP. Be Well, Amber Husten

  17. says

    Hi Kelly,
    I love your blog and cookbooks. Congratulations on your pregnancy too! I have not yet tried hemp anything but am very eager to do so – I have food allergies to multiple protein sources so this could be a great option for me. Thanks!

    Ooh, ooh! I would LOVE to win this! I used to use hemp protein more often but it caught the ax as a “not necessary” expense with our budget cuts in January. 😉

  23. Kiki says

    I love hemp! My birth name is Christina Maria de Lourdes Simpson. My brother wasn’t quite 2 when I was born so he called me Kiki. It stuck. I am 43 and my friends and family still call me Kiki. I married 20 years ago and my last name is Phelps now. I think you are wonderful! Congratulations on your pregnancy! As Erma Bombeck wrote “instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy and complaining about the shadow over my feet, I’d have cherished every minute of it and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle”. Sending you many blessings!

    Great giveaway. I’ve recently restocked my chia and flax seed supplies. The hemp prize would round out the smoothie supplies.
    Thanks Kelly Bergner

  28. says

    Hi Kelly, Have been watching and enjoying your site for months now and have worked my way through many, many of the recipes in your first book. Have had your second book for a few weeks now also. Tried the spinach/artichoke pies last week from your site and my family loved them – wondered if you could use less baking powder and baking soda??? Thanks for all your work and adventure in the kitchen providing all of us with so many wonderfully good recipes!!! I often use hemp milk and have also used hemp seed. Kim Ward

  29. says

    I’m savoring some delicious cashew yogourt using your recipe as I post this. My son and I both appreciate being able to eat one of our favorite foods again,with cashews rather than dairy. I would love to try some of the hemp products – I’ve only tried hemp milk thus far.

    I’m so happy I saw this! I love using hemp in my smoothies/ shakes. I actually just got into the whole food blogging world this week! The Spunky Coconut being listed in the inspiration section of my first post :)… check it out if you like. I know this will be drawn at random- not trying to butter you up :)

    Thanks for everything, Eryn Jones

    Can’t wait to try the sunbutter cake kabobs, those look fabulous. I made your lava cake recipe, it is my birthday today. They were DELICIOUS!!


  34. says

    Hey Kelly,
    So, when you posted about the smoothie you made with this hemp protein, I ordered it from Amazon immediately. I have tried a couple other hemp proteins and have NOT liked them. But, I’m happy to report that I really enjoy the Manitoba harvest and am on my second bottle of it… I really appreciate your suggestions.

  35. says

    Hey Kelly,
    I’m also a fan of bite-sized foods- particularly as a treat for dinner. The kids LOVE when I tell them we’re having a finger food dinner- it means I’ll finally stop hassling them about using their forks. :)
    I am super proud to see a Canadian company at the forefront of this industry. Hemp rocks!! I’d love to be part of the contest.

    Hi Spunky Coconut,
    I’m so new at all this, but believe my husband may have a gluten & dairy allergy. Thank you for your amazing website. I am so grateful for those of you who have pioneered this journey for us to follow.
    On a new journey,

    i’ve recently started having protein smoothies for breakfast, and love the energy they give me! however i’ve never tried hemp protein — so this would be perfect! thanks for offering the giveaway! — Anna Labadie

  49. says

    I “mostly” went grain and sugar free so when my 18 month old boy asked for pie when he saw the organic pumpkin on the table I couldn’t deny the sweet adorable request with all this enthusiasm after he ate most of his veggie soup from Follow Your Heart and a little wild salmon. Ofcourse it was difficult to explain that if I started baking the whole pumpkin now if wouldn’t be done 4 plus hours later. And I wanted to use a recipe that called for coconut sugar my new love in my life. Somehow the research ended up at your site. And mamma’s getting distracted from making pie…would love to try a hemp seed crust any love here? Love Hailey Cohen aka trillionaire momma

  50. Barbara says

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for your post! My daughter was absolutely drooling over my shoulder over the strawberry kebobs! Me thinks that’ll be on her bday meal wish list. I’d love to try the hemp protein. I’ve tried hemp milk and hemp oil and the flavor was a bit different for me. Perhaps this brand will be smoother.

    I spent Super Bowl Sunday on the beach in Marin County, CA! It was a lovely day. By the way, I love everything from Manitoba Harvest!

  52. says

    Hi Kelly,

    I’ve been reading and using recipes on your blog sporadically for the last year. A few months ago, with the strong encouragement of a friend, I decided to try moving my life towards being sugar-free permanently as it was wreaking havoc on me physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve been using your website as a resource for just about everything I’ve been making lately. And to my surprise, my husband is actually LOVING this new style of cooking and baking. Anyway, would love to try any new products that help move us towards being more and more free of refined products, and more free to actually enjoy our food! My name is Laura Bull, thanks for all your work to share with the community around you!
