Chocolate Cherry Protein Smoothie

A Smoothie Recipe and the Calphalon Dutch Oven Giveaway Winner Announcement

When I was a little girl we always spent Christmas Eve at my paternal grandparent’s home.  They didn’t have a house but a mobile home.  One of the items my Grandma Leona (yes – this is where I get my Arkansas from) always had at Christmas was a box of those gooey Chocolate Covered Cherries.  She didn’t keep them out on the coffee table with the jar of ribbon candy but safe in the pantry or china hutch.  That was fine with me – they were never my favorite.  However I took a step out of my comfort zone and created a smoothie with chocolate and cherries and I think it is delicious.

Calphalon Dutch Oven Giveaway Update
I want to thank all of you that entered this quick giveaway.  I didn’t plan on doing another raffle in December but it is important to me to pass along items that I have found useful and when that means you can have a new tool for your kitchen – it just needed to happen 🙂  The comments you left regarding what you would do with the time saved in having a dishwasher safe  piece of cookware were the best.  Spending time with loved ones and cooking were the most popular answers which I can relate to.  So with that said – I am happy to announce that the winner is:
Kim Adams Morgan
Kim – I will send you an email outlining the details.  I hope you enjoy!
