This time EACH one of you gets a free book…

by Janice

Our inbox is stuffed with requests for us to share information with you. And far too often we must say no – we simply can’t write about it all.

But this fun offer caught my eye and I thought you might like it too…

  • First – for any of you located in LARagu is teaming up with celebrities Sela Ward, Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist Joy Fawcett, teen stars Mitchel Musso, from “Hannah Montana” and Malese Jow, from “Unfabulous,” and children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Los Angeles for the The Ragú Soccer Shoot Out. This is a fun event created to provide moms and kids with easy tips about nutrition, fitness and safety. At the June 4th event (from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM at Hollywood & Highlands – Hollywood Boulevard between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive,) the children will team up with their celebrity mom coaches and captains to run soccer drills, enjoy nutritious veggie snacks with Ragú pasta sauce and receive an AmberWatch® safety tool.
  • ragu-recipe.jpgSecond – if you head over to, you can get your own free Ragu Soccer Mom Shortcuts recipe book. All you do is sign up and answer a few questions and they will send you your copy. (Since I am Canadian, I didn’t try out the sign up process – but I did check out the recipes they provide online and they look perfect for busy moms – simple, quick and kid friendly!)

Life is busy for all of us moms. We are all desperate for more hours in the day to get everything done. Finding fast, healthy meal ideas is always a great way to make a mom’s life just a little easier!

So head over to Ragu and get a free Recipe Book. And the best part – this time each one of you gets one! (And for us Canadians – no worries – the recipes are online too in a totally easy to use format. A ton of recipes just waiting for you!)

I have linked your site from mine and would appreciate if you could link mine on yours. I am a christian womens speaker and author. I have a precious book out titled “I Call You Beautiful” out and would love some help promoting it. You can go to a link from my web page or it is available at Barnes and Noble, Borders, Amazon and Lifeway stores online. I really enjoy your site!
